Shelley's full name is Shelley Debunkle. Just to keep this one from being a total cop-out, I will mention that she is named after Frankenstein author, Mary Shelley.
The Debunkle part is just made up
2. What is she?
Shelley is made from reanimated corpses, hence the Frankensteinian namesake. There is no delicate term for her kind in The Underburbs. 'Flesh golem' doesn't quite roll off the tongue. 'Stitch' is used in some circles, but it is a bit of a racial slur.
3. What's her family like?
She has a creator/father by the name of Dr. Phineas Debunkle. She also has an older brother named Percy. The doctor's first experiment, Percy has very limited functions. This is due mostly to the fact that he keeps his brain on his lap as a pet rather than in his skull. Neither have appeared in an issue of The Underburbs yet.
4. How old is she?
Although she is enrolled in Underborough High School, Shelley was only shocked to life three years before the events of The Underburbs.
5. What's she like?
Shelley is shy and reserved, focusing mostly on her studies. Despite attending high school at the age of three, she is often mistaken for being very unintelligent. It's probably the whole reanimated corpse thing, but she tries not to let it bother her. Of course, have you ever tried not to let something bother you? It bothers you.
6. Poor girl. Any other problems?
She is a resident of Underborough, a dimension inhabited almost entirely by monsters. The few humans that reside there are unfortunately backwards villagers who are strongly opposed to mad science. Shelley is usually chased to and from school by a torch-and-pitchfork-wielding mob. With all the running she does, Shelley once considered trying out for the track team, but decided that the angry villagers would be too much of a disruption on the field.
7. Dat hair, tho!
Shelley has black hair with a shock of white on either side. She keeps her bangs short, but the large beehive hairdo is not by choice. Dr. Debunkle created Shelley with an extra large cranium, which her hair conceals. She is also never seen without her pair of bolt-shaped earrings. These serve no practical purpose; she just likes them.
8. Does she have any semblance of a social life?
Sure she does! She has become good friends with Angela Morgan, a recent transfer student from the human world. Since meeting Angela, she's had a chance to come out of her shell (sorry) a bit. Though she sometimes interacts with Countess Winifred Pale, she only barely tolerates her and considers Angela her only friend. She thinks Angela's human friend George is all right, but kind of a goofball.
Well, that's that! If you still hunger for facts, ask in the comments!
1. We've seen plenty of Subi-chan, let's hear about her, too!
2. As far as I'm concerned, Beth & Eliza are the runaway stars of Another Princess Story. Four facts apiece? Eight two-fers? The choice, as Black Sheep once said, is yours.
