Vespa (베스파, Beseupa) is a humanoid being with a bee-like theme, climbing the Tower alongside several members of Ship's Team. She is a Regular and front-liner combatant with considerable skill. Her Position is a Scout. She is able to transform into an adult form. The last time she was seen was on the 49th Floor with team Leesoo and the guide Evan Edrok helping in waking Koon Aguero Agnis.
Appearance & Personality
She is squat and short, only coming up to Leesoo's waist. She has luminous blue-grey hair, with matching fur coat. She also has yellow wings on her back and club-like weapons in the form of honey-colored clubs. She has also been seen carrying a jar containing the antidote to the poison of her needles.
She and Amigochaz fought together to try to defeat Viole. They initially had the upper hand due to Reina sucking away Viole's shinsoo, enabling Amigochaz to throw Viole into Vespa. She meant to stab Viole, but her poison-coated needle was intercepted by Yuto, who threw herself in harm's way. She watched in amazement as Viole used his Thorn to defeat Amigochaz in one blow. She dashed and attempted to catch Viole unaware, but Viole was able to grab her needle and throw her into the ground. Leesoo told her to retreat and she gave him her honey to heal Yuto before the whole team left for Archimedes.
She was chosen for the 14th Round of the Plug event and passed to the next round along with Verdi.
She was chosen as the vanguard for Leesoo's team and was assigned to group B.
In the Development Tournament Vespa eliminated her competitors alone, allowing Leesoo's team to qualify for the semifinals. During the event, she met Hatsu who was dressed like a Workshop guard and was wounded. After appearing in Team Tangsooyook's room with Laure, Wangnan, Yihwa, Akraptor, and Rak mistook her for a giant insect.
In the semifinals, she and Leesoo await in the field until an enemy appears. Vespa stopped Beta when he was heading towards Wangnan and Quatro. When Vespa tried to measure her speed against Beta, she was easily defeated. When Beta was about to finish her, Rak defended her.
She briefly fought Beta alongside Rak and Yihwa before he flew off in pursuit of Wangnan. Vespa then went along with Akraptor and Quaetro to find Team Snake, but when they got to the place they should've been they encountered no-one.
She and Leesoo went off in search of Novick after he was held hostage by Reflejo. They struggled to find him until Xia Xia decided to lend her aid. When all the hostages were found, some of them were put on Vespa's back and she flew them out of the cavern where they met up with Androssi and Viole's group. They were then challenged by a Ranker associated with FUG but, due to some unforeseen events elsewhere, the Ranker left quietly and they all escaped aboard the Wolhaiksong suspendiship.
She was seen with the rest of her team as they left to climb the Tower.
She was seen briefly alongside the rest of her team.
Vespa, along with other members of her team followed Androssi Zahard to the 39th Floor, in order to retrieve the name of the Kaiser at the Name Hunt Station. Accompanied by other teammates, Vespa witnessed Androssi' escape from Kaiser's residence after Androssi lost her name to Kaiser in a duel.
Powers and Abilities
She is a skilled fighter in close range combat because of the advantages of her fast speed movement while flying, being able to fight evenly against Yuto. She is a talented scout, being able to spy some supported regulars of Zahard's Army undetected.
Flight: Vespa has been shown to be able to fly using the gold wings on her back. She can also move at extreme speeds with her wings. She claims that there is no Regular that is faster than her, but whether this is true is debatable.
Transformation: She stated that she is able to transform into an adult stage. What benefits her adult form provides her with is unknown for now.
Needles: Vespa uses needles that have a special design on them that make them look like a wasp's abdomen with a large stinger. She has a few smaller ones floating around her that she can shoot shinsoo beams from. She also holds a normal sized needle which she uses to physically attack with.
Poison: Vespa has a special poison that her needles are coated in. The only antidote to the poison is the honey she carries around. The antidote must be applied within 5 minutes, otherwise, the victim will die.
