Background

Jessica Jentsch was supposed to be a star.  All her life she was told by her doting father that it didn't matter that she was smaller than all the other girls, she would be just as beautiful and successful as they were.  And Jessica believed him.  She didn't let the other kids put her down - she fought back, often landing herself in trouble at school.  When her father remarried and had twin daughters with his new wife, Jessica soon found that most adults were hypocrites.  The twins were 'normal'.  They began to take up all of her father's time, and Jessica loathed them.  When she was sixteen, and the twins were eight, Jessica moved to Berlin to live with an aging aunt.

As soon as she was gone the rest of her family heaved a sigh of relief.  Or so Jessica assumed.

She forced her way through school, scaring those who would stand in her way and bullying the teachers who didn't think she was good enough.  When she decided to become an actress, no one dared laugh at her.  In fact, she secured her first role by threatening to break the assistant director's leg.  But, as with most things in Jessica's life, acting just didn't seem to be as glamorous as she thought it would be.  The choice of roles was quite limited and she began to suspect that people didn't really like her.

So when she was contacted by GNOME, she decided to hold off on reporting them to the police and listen to their 'crazy talk'.  Rumpelstiltskin appeared like a crazy old man, complete with flowing robes and wide, white eyes.  But after listening to him, Jessica thought that the old coot was making sense.  Everything was 'relative'.  She was only 'small' because everyone else was bigger.  If you took away the big people you'd only have the little ones left, and then they wouldn't be so poorly treated.

Jessica signed on.

Since joining the ranks of the GNOME Associates Jessica has learned how to cause a lot of harm, and she's found that she really, really likes it.  She figures that acting was just the warm up and now, as a budding supervillain, she is finally at the right place.  In fine supervillain tradition she has also taken on an alter ego, Thumbelina.  At first it was a joke: a reference to her childhood with a doting father.  But then she realised that such an innocuous name would be fitting as she unleashed terror and carnage with her specially designed GNOME Gun.

 

Personality

Thumbelina never does things by half.  She is full of confidence, even arrogance, and anyone who gets in her way is likely to be knocked down.  The fact that she has no friends and that most people in GNOME are petrified of her doesn't seem to have registered with Jessica yet.  She just assumes that people respect her, when in fact they are scared to get in her way.

In battle, Jessica has proven herself to be the bravest and most reckless of the associates and she has become the de facto field leader.  When in the field she barks orders and expects immediate response, which she gets because the others in the team have heard rumours that one time Jessica actually shot one of her own men in the backside because he was too slow in responding to her commands.

 

Quote

"You have five seconds to get the #*%$! out of my face!  What?  You never heard a little person swear before?  !#$% Off!"

 

Powers

Apart from an intimidating collection of curses, Jessica is a regular human.  As part of GNOME she has access to body armour, high-tech equipment and weaponry including the GNOME Gun.

 

Appearance

Thumbelina is nearly four feet tall, has lovely blonde hair which she spends a lot of money on keeping 'just right'.  She wears pink lipstick and has long lashes, but while she appears to have the features of lovely young woman she is actually imbued with terminal levels of sarcasm and vitriol.  Her mouth is almost always twisted into a sneer and she rarely looks at people, even when talking 'at' them.

She wears the standard GNOME armour when on a mission, but will otherwise wear casual clothes which she tends to buy from children's stores because fashion houses still refuse to cater for small people.  Still, one of these days...
