Tempest Belle Mirakel
though she be but little, she is fierce
manipulative — seductive — feisty — possessive — quick-temper
secretly loves having her belly scratched…in both forms
What She Can Do: The Bandersnatch is still capable of changing forms, thanks primarily to her refusal to spend much time in London. She wasn’t tainted, as others had been. She’s still a force to be reckoned with, no matter which form she takes. She has all the abilities that are common to a feline, enhanced smell, sight, speed, and strength. She’s got excellent night vision and the instincts natural to hunters. Not to mention an enhanced temper, something special just for a Bandersnatch.
What She is Like: Tempest took her human name on for a reason. She’s a violent storm waiting to let loose. She is the Bandersnatch, a feared figure throughout Wonderland. Despite Alice’s influence and that pesky compassion she awoke, Tempest is still a manipulative, fierce woman. She’s feisty and hard-headed with tendencies towards quick-temper and violence. She’s still quite feline in her movements and thought patterns, hunting being a primary instinct. She’s competitive, which she didn’t used to feel the need to be. It’s something that pops up when her ferocity is questioned. Which it has been, once word of her compassion towards Alice started spreading. She had to shed some blood to get people to shut up. She hates that the compassion that she fights so hard to keep buried, has made her weak. Tempest hates weakness, abhors it with a burning passion. If she senses weakness in another, she will do one of a few things: kill them, torture them, or protect them. The last one is exceptionally rare and she tries to fight that one but it has been known to happen, though if you are lucky enough to fall into that column do NOT tell anyone, because it will change. She’s more animal than human at times, but that’s usually something that occurs after having been in her Bandersnatch form for a while. She can be playful and fun, though often this is a side reserved either for those she cares about or is used as part of her manipulation.
What was life Things were simple in the beginning. She was the Bandersnatch, a vicious, highly feared beast that would stalk the wood or the darker places of Wonderland, hunting as she pleased. When something was needed of her, the Queen would call upon her and she would do her bidding. Never questioning, never caring. It was a simple existence. As long as she was permitted to hunt whomever she liked, she would do whatever the Queen needed. It was simple and she was content.
Then came along a little pip named Alice Liddell. The wee girl’s kindness woke something in the Bandersnatch’s heart. Something called compassion, she didn’t like it. But she couldn’t fight it and she couldn’t fight the fact that she liked the young girl. She was spunky and energetic, kind and fierce all in the same. She respected the girl, though she wouldn’t say this to anyone who asked. She even mourned her death, in her own silent way, she was considerably saddened by the loss of the clever little girl.
Compassion wasn’t the only thing to change for Tempest. One morning she woke, after a vivid dream of dancing little Liddells singing a silly song, and she was different. She was like a human, petite female. Her new form was tiny, doll-like. She heard of others who this happened to. But she blamed the size and appearance on Alice Liddell and the damn compassion. She was no longer a large ferocious beast, but a tiny little woman. The only blessing was that she still had her senses and could change back to her original form. Not to mention, this form opened a few doors regarding hunting and stalking that her larger form lacked. Call it a silver-lining or something to that effect.
The opening of the way to London remained unimportant to the Bandersnatch. She preferred Wonderland, it was home and it was her hunting ground. She liked the familiarity. Yet there was one time she was sent out on a mission, and she found some curiosities in London. She would rarely return, but sometimes she felt like it. The Bandersnatch always did as she felt, unless an order came down from the Queen. That was the only time she did another’s bidding.
All the fuss regarding the new Alice’s annoyed her. She worried that one of them may be like the original Alice and try their hand at softening her again. She had a tendency towards being rather vicious towards any wannabe Alice that attempted to befriend her. She even hunted a few of them, but wouldn’t kill them. Just scare them enough to avoid the Bandersnatch. She didn’t need any snot making her weaker. Not that she considered herself weak, she just didn’t want to risk it.
Things began to grow strange, different, and Bandersnatch blamed the wannabe Alice’s for this. It was easy and it made sense, so she avoided them more. It was actually quite a relief when the doorways between London and Wonderland closed. No more worry of another Alice making her weak.
Though the White Rabbit keeps bringing humans over, it’s at a slower rate and she fears them less because they aren’t special like Alice. At least, she doesn’t believe them to be. Not to mention, she doesn’t get why he is doing it but could really care less. It likely has to do with the game being played out between her Queen and the Cheshire. The Bandersnatch actually always quite liked Cheshire, especially as he grew darker and stranger. In fact, if she weren’t so loyal a creature to her Queen, she’d likely have sided with him. But, the Bandersnatch is ever the loyal creature. She has been the Queen’s creature for as long as she can remember, it’s simpler to remain that way. So whatever plays out, she is who she is and is where she is.
