Akari is something of a Jekyll and Hyde character. She is the beautiful head of a mega global tech company, Quintet Tech, super-wealthy and influential, but also private to a pathological degree.

She has firm and immovable boundaries and is a mystery woman in the business world, as very few have glimpsed who she truly is outside of business, or even had a conversation with her outside of a formal meeting.  
She is punctual, polite, ethical, and economical with words and expression, and prefers not to mix business with pleasure.

After work hours, however, Akari is a very different character. Her social circle is limited to a handful of trusted childhood friends. 

She has never married or had children but likes to spend time with her friends with whom she can be her true self. 
Robbie gained access to her tight inner circle by virtue of taking her and her best friend on a private safari to Chobe in Botswana some years back, where he got to know the real Akari, and they’ve been "WhatsApp" friends ever since.
When Robbie finally gets her to have the meeting, things don't go the way he has planned and now he has a fire to put out and has to remain calm and impress his family while at it.

Akari's kindness is what simmers her down and they reach a resolution.
