Hatchepsut was my first AD&D character – a typical thief in the land of T’Ameryth (egyptian-like). She was caught in Theben with her hand down someone else’s pocket and thrown into the palace prison. Her ardent defence speech however convinced the queen that maybe there was more to this thief than what met the eye, and she (Hat, not the queen) was thus thrown into the arms and care of a group of adventurers serving said queen. They were told to educate her and bring her onto the righteous path – only one of them (Groh) ever took this seriously – the rest of the gang found it quite usefull to have a little nimblefingered someone, who could open locks and stuff, handy. Her fellow adventurers were: Pyrothon (wild-mage), Groh (were-ape), Tiraja (noble elven woman), Esafar (blue genie, that she has a crush on) and Druh (elven man with a disturbingly dark mind).
Hatchepsut is terribly curious and something of a tomboy, especially when on adventure with her good friend YuniHeref – a were-tiger. The two of them can drive any co-player nuts with their playfull way of dealing with things.
Hatchepsut got married to the knight Sir Bruce Wayne from the land of L’Ogres (think African Knights – they are black and ride zebras). They presently reside in Sir Wayne’s city Gotham in L’Ogres. Need I mention that Sir Wayne is a were-bat? Amongst many other charming features he has a cape that blows just right, even when there is no wind about… *siiiiigh*
For some mysterious reason Hatchapsut was asked some years back to become treasurer for the Pharaoh in Kemiet (also egyptian-like). She did point out her past trangsgressions to him, but apparently his advisors had told him that no one takes as good care of money than a thief… Hatchepsut gleefully aceepted and, yes, she does keep two accounts (duh!). She doesn’t cheat the Pharaoh as such, but he does get to build some roads, schools and poorhouses that he hasn’t strictly ordered build and does not know the least about. Surely he can’t mind what buys him credit with his people? He doesn’t know how much money he has anyway, and they are certainly well spend.
