    Inauspicious
    and boding ill both carry the sense of "showing signs that something will not succeed".

    Ill-fated means that something is unlikely to succeed.

    Ominous suggests that something unpleasant is about to happen

    Unfortunate means having bad fortune, to be unlucky OR that something is regrettable or not appropriate.

    #2
    "Multiple personalities" = having or involving several parts or elements
    "Numerous occasions" = Many; consisting of great numbers of units


    #3
    In relation to
    = in connection with something.
    "Dependency" implies that a person exists only in relation to another person
