Well I thought I would throw this out before heading off to work. Its a big one and I really went far out on this. Oh and I decided to go with the goats head, hope you enjoy!
“She’s here I tell you. The scent of cinnamon & mint is still the air”
Takanosuke looked at Kujaku strangely that was met in kind. “Excuse me? Cinnamon & mint?” Kujaku whispered.
“Yes, she thinks like a spoiled child…A very dangerous & diabolical spoiled child…” the bizarre looking old man answered
Kujaku turned to their other employer “I don’t get it? We are just looking for a doll right?”
Hugo smirked, “Just a doll? Giuseppe is the world’s leading doll maker & his works are coveted more than gold as they should be. Is this cute little payment just a doll?” The dark sorcerer motioned to the diminutive little Marionette dressed as child version of Hime.
“No, I guess not.” Kujaku smiled as brushed the silken hair of her new prized possession.
Sudden both the Marionette & Takanosuke dashed off into the shadows. “Something is here, be on guard.”
“That is what we paid you to be, now earn your keep, silly woman.” Hugo sneered.
“Oh Melody, my sweet precious Melody, time to come home to papa.” Giuseppe called out as the bright pink ball seemed to fall from out of nowhere.
The old man didn’t have time to react & only the quick reaction of his own Marionette caught brunt of the attack. Kujaku leapt forward to intercept a pair of arrows flying out of the dark.
“Awwwww” as another would be assassin closed in from behind the ninja princess, only be sliced up by the Marionette that just took most of the damage from the trap.
Kujaku thought to herself “How could that doll move so fast or even move at all after that trap?” Then more cries as Takanosuke & her own Hime-chan dispatched the other attackers.
“Darn I was sure we would get her this time.” Giuseppe bemoaned as he looked over a pot of cinnamon & mint used to bait the traps.

The greatest doll maker in Gaia Giuseppe is an odd man & lonely man. So it a lifelong dream is to create the perfect child from the marionettes he crafts from magic & dreams. And while most of the world only see his creations as wonderous toys, the Order of Yehudah knows better. The Creator as he is known in the dark circles supplies the order with mystical marionette, while helping him search for his finest creation who ran away some many years ago.Note:
Giuseppe as well as all the Marionettes where to be the bases of Order of Yehudah boxset. The Marionettes would be small maybe even true 25mm and maybe add one other Mystic to round out the group. At first Giuseppe was going to be marionette/golem/gear medic support type but then I thought of something a little different. With some of the Marionettes options you can really do some interesting activation tricks with this guy. Marionette Opera is similar to Genma’s ability to avoid damage but it does also make him immune to states as long as he has a Marionette. The art is of the Toymaker from the Castlevania video game and the Marionettes are from one piece of art for Touhuo Project a bullet hell game that has spawned a lot of art. I wanted the have the Marionettes have a uniform look and this art had that and the figures have no real faces so it seem to work for me. The Marionettes are a new combination of unit/equipment and so they are a rather new unit type. I based them off of Aqua but at their base level they are weaker then him, but since you can pull from your Advantage card pool they can be cheaper and have other advantages. All of these ideas came out of the TWWAU book so hopefully they are balanced but I figure I likely have to make adjustments.
Like always I welcome any questions, comments, and suggestions.
