Countess Bunny Velvetino was a Noble Thinkamancer in the service of Don King of the side of Transylvito. She only communicated via Thinkamancy projection, having "lost her voice." Erf-b3-p61Same-site.PNG She was a Baddie, excommunicated from the majority of Thinkamancy by the Great Minds That Think Alike, which she explains as "she broke under the weight of their secrets." Erf-b3-p159Same-site.PNG. Bunny never visited the Magic Kingdom and was scarcely known to other Thinkamancers.

Bunny was labeled as a Baddie due to her experiments with Bill the Dollamancer thousands of turns ago, when she was still an adept. Intrigued by Bill's desire to bring his Dolls to life, she started sharing Thinkamancy secrets and eventually linked up with Bill to create a hide golem that she could see and hear through. When disclosing the results of this experiment to the Great Minds, she was spellbound and warned that she would be marked as a Baddie if she crafted any more golems in this nature, disclosed any more secrets, or discussed the golem with Bill.

Bunny attempted to follow the restrictions and avoided Bill thereafter. However, Bill still had access to the golem, and often touched it to try and regain her attention. Over the course of many turns his use of the golem became increasingly forward, and he eventually began to abuse it sexually. Bunny was able to fight off the transmitted sensations for a time, but grew increasingly weary from the effort and lack of sleep. Eventually, after dropping a Thinkagram during a key battle, she confessed everything to her lover Prince Ponzie. Erf-b3-p60Same-site.PNG

That confession triggered the Badness spell that had been placed on her. The spell automagically shut down her connection to various channels of Thinkamancy, and permanently removed her ability to speak. In revenge for the abuse and its result, Ponzie tortured Bill every night for ten turns. Erf-b3-p165Same-site.PNG

More than 7200 turns later Erf-b3-p60Same-site.PNG, after the Battle for Gobwin Knob, Bunny triggered the spellbinding a second and final time. In defense of her lover Caesar Borgata and out of duty to her side, she used a secret Thinkamancy power to croak her ruler Don King. Revealing that secret in front of witnesses caused the spell to tunnel through her mind searching for the motivations behind her Badness. In the process, the spell tore Bunny's mind apart.Erf-b3-p217Same-site.PNG

Relationships

Great Minds

The Great Minds exiled Bunny from Thinkamancy for failing to remain silent about her experiments with Bill. Isaac explains she was branded a Baddie because "she broke an oath to the Great Minds for reasons of love." Parson has told her that if she helps him defeat Charlie, the Great Minds will pardon her. Isaac has expressed strong resistance to this plan, and the Great Minds were displeased at the result of her initial meeting with Parson. Erf-b3-p72Same-site.PNG

Caesar Borgata

Bunny had a romantic relationship with Caesar, whom she referred to as "Squeeze" or "Squeezie." Any spare juice Bunny had at the end of turn was usually spent in communication with Caesar, Erf-b2-p26Same-site.PNG and the two engaged in liaisons whenever Caesar visited Transylvito.

It is unknown if anyone within Transylvito was aware of their affair, but they went to great lengths to keep it hidden. Caesar deliberately ignored Bunny whenever they were both in Don King's presence Erf-b3-p147Same-site.PNG, and they had a rule not to do anything together where anyone can see them. Erf-b3-p149Same-site.PNG In public, Caesar flirted with others like Dewy Tulips to throw off suspicion.


Don King

Don King needed Bunny like he needed air.Erf-b3-p61Same-site.PNG His Signamancy didn't allow flight or any travel, but Thinkamancy could indefinitely extended the range of doombats' scouting. He held her in his absolute trust, due to her once saving his life from an assassination attempt by her own lover. Erf-b3-p217Same-site.PNG. Don was comfortable enough to express himself freely in front of Bunny, be it despair Erf-b2-p59Same-site.PNG or fury Erf-b2-pE18Same-site.PNG.

In the final conflict between Don and Caesar Borgata, Bunny's love for Caesar and duty toward her Side compelled her to turn against her king. She used a secret Thinkamancy power to croak Don by cutting his Grandiocosmic String. Erf-b3-p217Same-site.PNG


Speculation

It is suggested that the fallout of Bunny's status as a Baddie also affected the Prince Ponzie's failed coup for Transylvito's throne.Erf-b3-p61Same-site.PNG

If Caesar leads a coup d'état against Don King, Bunny's support would be crucial in coordinating the revolutionaries and feeding misinformation to the loyalists. That may be why he keeps the relationship secret.

A Thinkamancer's highest loyalty is to Thinkamancy itself. While the Great Minds have little real authority over their fellow Thinkamancers and must respect their own lives and desires, the Thinkamancers remain one of the most unified disciplines. Since the Great Minds are trying to use Parson to attack Charlie, Bunny might encourage Caesar to ally with Gobwin Knob, if Caesar takes power, and if Bunny has any remaining loyalty to the Great Minds.

The necklace she wears is similar to the all-seeing-eye worn by Maggie, which may signify former membership in the Great Minds. It should be noted, however, that the eye on Bunny's necklace is closed Erf-b3-p164Same-site.PNG - likely a mark of her "Baddie" status, that her vision is limited (or closed off) from the Great Minds.

King Slately states that when he spoke with Bunny it was always in his mind, she never spoke aloud. This is likely connected to her excommunication from the other Thinkamancers.

Real World References

Her name may be a reference to the traditional "bunny eared" television antennas, since communication using Thinkamancy is popularly seen as similar to radio communication.

Her name may be a reference to the vampire rabbit Bunnicula from the James Howe children's book series.

Her name may be a reference to the telepath Bunny from the Babylon 5 book trilogy, The Passing of the Techno-Mages.

Since Transylvito has some Mafia-like tones, her name may be a reference to Skeeve's accountant/moll Bunny who works for the Mob in the MythAdventures books by Robert Asprin.

Her surname is a combined reference to the children's book The Velveteen Rabbit by Margaret Williams, in whose story love also plays a major role, and Cesare Borgia, whose title was 'Duke Valentino'.
