Bunty is Bean's handmaid. In the absence of her mother, Bunty served as a maternal figure for Bean for most of her life. Bunty is a plump little lady, who is perfectly happy all the time, even when she's being mistreated.

Biography

Bunty is the first character to appear and speak in the series, A Princess, an Elf, and a Demon Walk Into a Bar, as she opened the curtains to Bean's room and told her to wake up for the wedding. While she helped Bean get ready for her wedding, she remarked that there were lots of reason to get married and that she got married in exchange for a single goat. This expresses how little wealth both herself and most of Dreamland has.

In Castle Party Massacre, after years of making Bean's bed for her, Bunty lays down in it for the first time and is overwhelmed by how comfortable it is. Bunty fell asleep in the bed. Bunty was too fat for Bean to push off and too entranced in her deep sleep to be awoken. Because of this, Bunty stayed in bed, while Bean and her one-night-stand had sex right next to her.

In Faster, Princess! Kill! Kill!, we are given some insight into Bunty's life, when she's not working. Despite being a royal servant, Bunty is woefully poor and lives in a rickety old shed, where she and her family make so little money that everyone in the family (including the kids) all need to work just to keep themselves alive, which wouldn't always work out for some of the children. Her husband, Stan was an executioner and she had a slew of children, who all had their own various real-world jobs and at-home chores. As mentioned before, many of Bunty's children died due to their impoverished lifestyle, but Bunty seemed to be perfectly at peace with this.

In Love's Slimy Embrace, it is revealed that she delivered Derek and allowed a younger Bean to use her as a horse so that she and Derek could do horse races.

In Tiabeanie Falls, it is implied that Bunty trusted Bean and refused to believe that she could kill her own father, which made her husband free Bean from the dudgeon to save her.

Appearance

Bunty is a short, plump, fair-skinned lady who wears a maid's outfit. Her hair is usually covered by her work uniform, but at home, it's revealed that she is a brunette with a bun in her hair.

Personality

Bunty is a nice woman but also very dimwitted. She is very kind, with strong maternal instincts and always willing to help Bean and doing things for her such as watching over Bean while she has a hangover, playing along with her schemes when she tries to sleep with a viking or letting her, Elfo and Luci stay at her home when King Zog kicked her out. Despite almost always maintaining this unnaturally cheerful demeanor, Bunty has shown on very rare occasions to secretly have an unspeakable amount of rage, bottled up inside of her, fueled by her mistreatment at her horrible job, her piss-poor salary, and her dying family.

  • Bunty and some of her children slept on Bean's bed for awhile after she was killed, possibly because she missed Bean or because Bunty just seized the chance to sleep on Bean's comfortable bed since she wasn't using it or both.
