Tremaine Argent doesn’t possess any physical force. She strongly believes in maintaining grace and self-control. The only time she herself breaks this rule is, ironically, at the point when Christie interrupts her to bring in an urgent message (at which point she frustratedly slams her hands onto her desk). She has a sinister glare and is very cruel to Christie when not in public; an example is when she silences her harshly twice when ordering her.
She holds a great envy towards her stepdaughter simply for her beauty and strength, so she treats her stepdaughter like a servant in her own home. A tyrant who employs subtle methods, she is deviously manipulative in controlling Christie by maintaining a sham benevolence in her authority of the household; she never physically abuses Christie and leaves that to one of the hunters, Kenny Harper. For example, when she slyly noted that Christie and Peter were going out, it prompted Kenny to assault Peter with his gang, and then have Christie dragged away when he attempted to rape her. When she came home, she then cruelly bid Christie "good night" (since she thought her plan had worked, unaware that Peter had transformed into Alpha to save her), ultimately maintaining her ostensible fairness. However, when she learned of the failed attempt, she managed to hide her anger, and stated she was happy to know that she was safe. However, behind walls, she nearly trashed her study, now knowing that Christie had a Guardian Angel watching over her stepdaughter.
Almost all of Tremaine's actions are motivated by a narcissistic hunger for prestige and control, as she wants to break Christie in the hopes that she will mold her into what she is. Even though she dislikes her, Tremaine expects her stepdaughter to be utterly obedient and is infuriated when she isn’t.
She is a cruel, jealous and spiteful stepmother to Christie. She also admitted during a confrontation that she was jealous of Christie's youth, courage, strength, and goodness, as it represented all that she was not. This demonstrates the self-awareness she has as a villain.
