Part 2 of My Sly Cooper fan project — a vllainess. Her name is Vanitas. If I actually wrote out this idea entirely in an episodic format like the Sly games actually have, Sly’s introduction for her would probably go something like this:
"As Slythunkahmen explained everything to me about this woman, I couldn’t help but wonder if he was just a bit starstruck from the way his eyes almost fell out of his head. Vanitas. She showed up one day at the docks, fresh off the boat from Greece. She was considered a muse to many, with sculptors and painters coming from afar to capture her beauty. However, rumor has it she found herself in disgrace after one artist discovered a secret about her so shocking that he fell unconscious on sight. Vanitas lost all of her riches, and worst of all, her reputation. She quickly moved to Egypt, looking to begin a new life as a model for the sculptors there, and for awhile it looked like she had…until it became in vogue for sculptors to create cat statues. Now, Vanitas has been smuggling art on the low, and has been seen bribing guards under the Pharaoh’s nose. She was harmless at first, but now that she’s kidnapped the Pharaoh’s sons and threatens Egypt’s well-being, she must be stopped."
Non spoiler alert: Her secret is, is that she’s bald under her wig. I feel like that and her Isis wings would come into play during a boss battle with her.
Other non spoiler alert: She’s Penelope’s ancestor.
