Wanda the “Burglar”

Wanda the “Burglar”

Face: Wanda has a full, round face.  Her eyes range between brown and hazel, which contrasts beautifully with her shoulder-length red hair, often worn simply, but sometimes in more elaborate styles.

Body: Wanda’s build is heavy; Most would call her fat.  Some of the reason for this is genetic (like her small breasts), but any of her family’s servants would tell you how much she liked sweets.  She’d often be left to her studies, and found some time later, her books and scrolls pushed aside for a bowl of custard cream or a sizeable piece of cake.  Her family wasn’t even sure where she was getting these sweets from.  (In fact, she had been sneaking out her window and over the balcony and through the upper window of the bakery next door. She wasn't agile, but if motivated, apparently she could climb) Like her mother had, Wanda carries an enormous backside and large, soft stomach, but also like her mother, her breasts are small.  She has always been teased about her size, and as she got older her lack of chest development.  

Clothing: Before her mother introduced her to supportive tailoring, she preferred large downs that covered as much as possible.  But as she got into her teen years, she took to having clothes tailored to hide her build as much as possible, even learning to be a bit of a magician herself when it comes to clothes, enabling her to shape the armor set she uses when ‘adventuring.’  While none of the clothes can succeed at making her look slim, they support and compress her a bit, as well as enhance her bust.  Think of them as a sort of full-body corset.  Her “Burglar” outfit consists of a dark green belted tunic, with leather shoulder armor, and a thick pair of pants.  Together they make an outfit one might imagine a skilled thief wearing.  In fact, they sort of resemble the outfit worn by “Red Rose,” a crimson-haired master spy, a popular literary character Wanda admires.

Bio:  Wanda was born to a family of minor nobility but much wealth.  Her upbringing could have been easy, except when her family refused her quest to be taught at home as a reaction to the bullying of other students.  She was too smart, they said, they wanted her to make the best use of her intelligence to marry into a more powerful family, not stay at home until she became a spinstress.  She was sent to the finest academy for Enferian nobles, to learn poetry, history, music, and to fulfill he societal expectations of a noblewoman.  She still lived at home with her family, but had to endure the taunting of the other girls, who also played cruel pranks on her.  To make matters worse, Wanda was exceptionally clumsy, and often ended up making a spectacle of herself without anyone’s intervention.  When not forced to be in the presence of her peers, she retreated to the library, where she read stories of romance, and intrigue.  Her favorite characters in the stories had traditionally been princesses, but the more she read, she started to admire the spies and noble-hearted thieves.  She endured a great deal of teasing, lessened a bit as her family had her clothes tailored to change her look, but she awaited her 18th birthday when her family had a special present for her.  All she knew was that it was a  magic item of great power that had belonged to her grandmother.  She imagined having this unnknown item, at the same time she reached adulthood and had control over her own destiny.  She imagined she wouldn’t have to go to the academy and endure bullying any more.  She expected her life would be changed, and as the day got closer, the time became easier to bear, in spite of the fact that no one was being any nicer to her.

On the eve of her 18th birthday, her family’s mansion was broken into.  It was the Enferian guard.  Rumors she heard later implied that her parents were rumored to be plotting against the queen.  She couldn’t imagine that, but it made no difference.  Her parents were whisked off to the queen’s dungeon, the house was ransacked by the guard, and the gilded coffer that she was to receive the next day, containing the family’s magic heirloom disappeared.

Wanda never imagined herself a thief—usually, she imagined herself a princess.  But on that night, both her family and her hope were taken from her, and she vowed to get it all back.  Breaking into the dungeons to rescue her parents was an advanced task she didn’t feel ready to tackle yet, but she suspected the contents of the gold coffer had made its way to the home of the captain of the guard, and she prepared to get it back.  She designed a costume for the purpose, based on the spies and thieves she admired from literature, and brought the proper tools and armaments.  She had a general idea how to operate as a thief from her reading, but her body was not up to the challenges presented.  In a debacle of mammoth proportions (which may someday be explored here), managed to run afoul of the Thieves’ guild, who were very upset that such an amateur would attempt to bypass their system.  The humiliations she saw at the hands of the Guild were worse than a whole year at the academy.  Of course, when the guild was done having their fun with her, they took her directly to the room in the guard captain’s house she was attempting to break into, took the coffer before she could get her hands on it, and alerted the guard as they escaped.

Wanda, the failed thief, had somehow managed to get into a heavily guarded treasury in the captain of the guard’s private estate.  A few things were missing, and the sole suspect caught by the guards was the large young woman, clad in a kind of thief outfit worn by a famous literary master spy, her large behind stuck in the window as if she was trying to escape.  What the guards did might be chronicled later, if the whole story is ever told, but here, let’s suffice it to say, she was captured, and brought before a magistrate.  There, her identity was made clear, and the suspicion that she had been part of her parent’s plot was raised.  Her family’s mansion was turned over to the care of the servants until such time the crown found a better use for it.  The magistrate asked the guard captain how she’d like to punish the thief.  After an interrogation trying to find out who her accomplices were, she was sentenced to the arena, where she’d be at least as unwilling a contestant (if not the most unwilling) ever sent there by the justice system.  It had been a mistake to let the stories she’d read go to her head.  Wanda was better suited to the life of a pampered princess than a rogue any day, but her feat of making her way into the treasury meant that the arena would bill her as a sort of master-thief.

Abilities:
Wanda doesn’t have a lot of natural athletic ability.  She is heavy though, and a somewhat strong.  Real abilities that would be of use in an arena like this for Wanda are rather lacking; here’s what she’s got.

Spin a Yarn:  Wanda can distract a foe from their current task by starting to talk about something so interesting or unusual, that they pause to listen.

Momentum: If Wanda is running at you, and you fail to dodge, her serious mass will take you off your feet, possibly with her right on top of you.

Sturdy Clothes: Wanda’s clothes are meant to hold her in…they are tough at first, but once the seams are breached, everything tends to come spilling out.  (This doesn’t actually make it harder to remove them—it just makes their destruction a bit more dramatic)

Wrestle: All of her failed attempts at escaping humiliation at the hands of her peers made her pretty good at wrestling people.  In spite of her lack of dexterity, her strength and weight compensate.  +2 to grapple.

Gadget: Wanda his rigged a sort of bracer that shoots a crossbow bolt with a rope.  She intended to use this to climb things, but found out in her burglary attempt that it works poorly.  Perhaps she’ll find other uses for it.  (It could be interesting, but considering her low dexterity, not a major threat)
Nerd Rage: Wanda has been teased her whole life.  If someone taunts her in a particularly biting way, she will attack them physically at +2.  For that same round, her wisdom is reduced -2, as she is overcome with rage.

Magic dagger:  This dagger has a +2 enchantment.  It used to belong to her grandmother.  Unfortunately for Wanda, it also talks when wielded, and it’s a bit of a jerk!

Physical stats:
Strength-9
Constitution-10
Dexterity- 4 (5 wasn’t low enough)
Speed- 6

Mental stats:
Wisdom-6
Intelligence-10
Perception-9
Charisma- 9


((I wanted a foil to all of the 'not quite fat' characters.  Hope nobody minds.))
