Every villain has his minions; so why can't one of them be cute? The Perky Female Minion is cheerful and upbeat, a fun girl to be around. Sure, her boss is an evil megalomaniac, but hey, a girl's gotta make a living.
Sometimes the Perky Female Minion is more sarcastic than bubbly; but either way she provides a contrast to a dark, brooding Mastermind.
Game and Story Use
- By definition, this character is an NPC.
- She does not, however, have to be working for the BBEG. She could be, say, the party patron's executive assistant, or a supporting character in the party.
- A Player could conceivably choose to make her character a Perky Minion, if she was okay with taking a subordinate role to another player; but the character type really works better as an NPC.
- For serious nightmare fuel the perky minion also happens to be the BBEG's torturer, bodyguard or hitgirl. Maybe she's even The Dragon … or the real BBEG. This may give the game something of a hentai air though…
- You say that like it's a bad thing.
