Kalia is so incredibly self-centered, one of the most extreme HGs ever in this regard, I think.
Just one example:
She was complaining how she never did get to the accessories during the fashion part of Pandora's box. Then Adam
said there were hardly any men's clothes. Kalia says "but I'm not a man." So Adam has to say, "I know, but I am."
She can't switch gears from herself to another person very well, unless it relates to her in a big way.
