I'm writing my first novel. One of the main characters was born without a soul.
This is her description, which also reflects her personality:
She had long black hair, crimson red lips, and a skin so pale it made me wonder whether she had blood at all. But what struck me the most were her eyes. Even though there was nothing unusual in them, they made her face look expressionless, lifeless. It felt odd—like staring at an empty canvas.
Now, she is a little complicated. She's less expressive than a normal person and display less emotions. However (I know this will sound a bit contradictory), she is able to cry, love, and feel pain, though she usually shows it in unconventional ways (e.g. running away to visit a dead tree).
I'm fearing that the reader won't be able to relate or care about the character because she seems to lack human emotions, or because she expresses it in strange ways.
Will this happens? If so, what should I do so the reader can care/relate to the character?
