Comment with a name (can be real or fake, famous or not) and a literary genre (sci-fi, young adult, romance, western, fantasy, mystery, etc.) and the next person creates a one-sentence backstory for that person/character.

I give you -

Adolfina Wupperman, crime drama

PS Once you've created a backstory for the name of a character above you, don't forget to add a new name and genre! Very Happy

@jespah,
On a blustery early April day in the year 1953, in Upper North St.Adalbert the fifth child and only daughter of Adolfo and Sarina Wupperman (nee Zippenstein), with an evil look in her oval shaped honeydew color eyes and a snarling sneer upon her mouth - an appearance which betrayed the true inner nature of the person who one day would root out and rid all cime from nearby Lower West St.Barnabas - Adolfina Wupperman was brought into the world.



Next up, Flossy Hildegarde Gump in a sci-fi tale.



(sincere apologies to the actual Adolfina Wupperman)

@Sturgis,
Flossy Hildegarde Gump was known as the Alien Whisperer. She could repel any invasion force merely by repeating the most terrifying words in any alien language, "Day-old potato salad."

Sir Barclay Farquhar surveyed with dark, hooded eyes his bevy of newly-
acquired nieces, none of whom knew their fate in London's bon ton, nor
that their soi-disant uncle was in fact the notorious Carmine Di Nucci.

And now: Cupcake Cassidy in a western.

@George,
Let me tell you about the baddest hombre that ever did live; he was meaner'n a rattlesnake kissin' a cactus, and the faster draw I ever done see -
he was the legendary Cupcake Cassidy.

Roy Rogers - urban fantasy

Wrangling the monstrous mutated alligators of the New York sewers was a
far cry from a round-up at the Double-R-Bar, I reckoned, but the ranch was
repossessed and a man's gotta make a living.

As the space capsule began its decent back to earth, Valentina Tereshkova, or Val-Val as she was known in babushka circles, grinned as she thought of the tasks she'd ordered her lover Yuri to complete in her absence, including paying a handsome sum to her soon to be husband Andriyan, to silence him over what she had done to get this cushy gig.
