Basic information Spoiler Name: Wendy Fallwind Level: 10 Affiliation: Marine (169th branch) Special abilities: / / / Height: 180cm Age: 21 Physical and mental description Spoiler Wendy has short black hair that impeccably stops at her shoulders, a physical manifestation of her sense of rigor and calm of mind. Her great height is supported by her posture: she stands straight, with her shoulders back, proud, but not boastful; elegant, but not obsessed by looks. On duty, she strictly conforms to dress-codes. When not, she likes wearing comfortable clothes: black pants and, generally, yellow T-shirts; yellow being her favorite color. Background First chapter: Departure and Memories Spoiler The sun was rising on the perilous seas of the Grand Line; the road of dreams, glory, but also of pain and despair. “Off you go, then…” pronounced Mrs. Fallwind, the sweetness of her voice struggling to mask the expression of her deepest fears. As the daughter of a navy man herself, she whispered some simple words of advice, that Wendy, obedient, and understanding of hierarchy, wouldn’t fail to follow. “Listen to the higher-ups. Do as they say, even if you think they’re wrong. Be polite. Don’t cause trouble. … And please don’t be reckless!” Her eyes met those of her beloved little girl. They were fearless. And so Mrs. Fallwind herself regained confidence. “Make us proud by becoming a great soldier, Wendy!” And off she went, embracing her home one last time; the garden, where she played war with the kids of the village; the kitchen, where she liked to draw strategic maps of battlefields while her parents cooked delicious meals; and her own room, in which she couldn’t count the hours spent reading books about war-tactics, and war itself. Joining the World Government was a logical choice. It wasn’t a dream to fulfill. She barely had ambition, or even meaning. But her personality and physical assets (nobody in the village had ever beaten her in a foot race!) were the profile of a perfect marine. Second chapter: Becoming a soldier Spoiler “- I had never heard of that island before! - Of course you haven’t. It’s tiny. Where are you from? - I’m from Water Seven. - Isn’t that the city built on water? - It sure is!” Wendy was having a conversation with a fellow officer she’d just met. They were eating a bowl of tasty ramen. He was in charge of explaining to her the principles of life as a Marine. Having passed ability tests, she was promoted to private recruit without having to go through the odd jobs. The morning had been full of formal and exhausting reunions. At the end of the day, he’d hand to Wendy her first uniform. Right after lunch, he’d… “Have me choose a weapon?” exclaimed Wendy, unable to hide her excitement. The artillery was the soldier’s marvel room. Swords, bows, axes, claws: weapons of all sorts were there. And on top of that: they were free. Minutes flew by without Wendy realizing. The officer in charge stood patiently, and thought back upon the days (not too distant) when he, too, was a recruit. He had chosen a rifle, which he still uses to his day. Finally, Wendy came back, holding her weapon of choice. “But… it’s a stick” he noticed, confused. “It is. But look. It isn’t a mere stick. Hold it.” The stick was about a meter long. It had a handle for devil fruit wielders. Surprisingly, it was extremely light, yet resistant. Wendy decided to attach it to her back. “Don’t you want something more… menacing?” “When I was a kid, we didn’t have swords. And even if our parents did, we wouldn’t have been allowed to play with them. So I picked up sticks and acted like they were deadly weapons. Which they can be, as a matter of fact. When I’ll become stronger, I might switch for a sword. But I’d like it to be one of the higher quality ones; those that they propose here, with due respect… Well, I don’t think they're fit, is all. […]” Stats Spoiler Level 10 10x5 = 50 Strength: 10 Speed: 25 25x2=50 - Reaction: 15 - Movement: 35 Vitality: 15 15x2=30 -Durability: 15 -Stamina: 15 Mind: / / / Abilities (in depth)/Equipment Spoiler Wendy was taught basic combat skills. Her average strength is compensated by her extraordinary speed. She likes to plan her methods based on the opponent. But that isn’t always possible, so she adapts. Later on in the story, she would like to learn the art of swordsmanship, as well as techniques of Rokushiki to improve mobility and resistance. To complement her fighting, she uses a 100 cm long, 3 cm wide, stick that she keeps attached to her back.
