Vine Staff/Lore

From PHIGHTING! Wiki

Background

Vine Staff is a Phighter coming from the region of Thieves' Den. She is a rarity in which she was born with no parents[3] but has a biological brother in Shuriken.[4] She helps Slingshot in his work at his café, alongside Shuriken. The aforementioned all live together as roommates in Thieves' Den. Her arm is cursed to be wood, which grows back despite her attempting to amputate it various times.[5] Her curse is transforming her extremely slowly into a form similar to a tree. In approximately 300 years, the transformation will finish, and she will no longer be a person but still be alive.[6]

Timeline

Appearance

Vine Staff has two moderately long horns, starting from the side of her head curling forward then upwards. Each horn has three identical thorns extruding from the front face.

She wears a pink kimono which is decorated with flower patterns. At her waist, she has an obi belt tied into a bow in the back. She wears a headband with a hanamusubi knot tied on the right side. Her left arm is made of light-grey colored wood and she uses this same arm to wield her gear, which is a winding wood staff ending on a bowline. A pink flower with a light yellow pistil rests at the top of it while a fluorescent flower sits on the inside of the curl. Vine Staff wears traditional makeup, with lipstick and eyeliner. She wears a necklace with a golden koban. Her boots are black with pink laces.

Personality

Vine Staff is a Phighter who is concerned with the safety of others. She makes sure that the people around her are cautious of the potential danger they may pose to themself and others. Creating plans in how to go about a fight is something that she prefers to do, and something she establishes with every Phighter. When there is no plan, she is worried. Despite her kind nature, she doesn't shy away from jesting at other Phighters, being especially sarcastic with her brother, Shuriken.

Lore

Relationships

Katana

Along with Shuriken and Slingshot, Vine Staff sees Katana as an older neighbor. The three of them will leave gifts outside his door so Katana knows he's appreciated.[7]

Shuriken

Shuriken is Vine Staff's biological brother[4] and someone she is extremely close to. They were both created "unconventionally"[8], and even though he is someone she commonly pokes fun of, she does care for him and will genuinely congratulate him on a job well done. Because her arm is cursed, Shuriken got the same arm tattooed in commemoration of her.[9]

Slingshot

Slingshot is Vine Staff's roommate and boss of her workplace.[10] She sees him as family.

Skateboard

Vine Staff attempts to understand Skateboard’s lingo and mannerisms, often times being confused or not fully understanding the remarks made by the latter. Despite this, she attempts to imitate them in an effort to be more friendly towards Skateboard.

Boombox

Vine Staff enjoys Boombox’s music during combat, and thanks him for what he does.

Scythe

Scythe likes Vine Staff, but is disliked in return.

Trivia

  • Her cursed arm is treated as normal since she can still feel with it. She can use it to her advantage to grow plant life off of it.[11]
  • According to the phone call with the Broker, Vine Staff's curse is not unique to her and has been seen more than once in Broker's lifetime, being cited as rare by him. In the same phone call, Broker states that he watches Vine Staff be a “miracle worker” in reviving dead and withering plants in Crossroads.
    • Scythe also mentions her curse, but instead refers to it as a blessing. When Vine Staff counters that there’s nothing blessed about it, Scythe says it’s a matter of perspective.

Like, 300 years, in PHIGHTING! time, Vine Staff will no longer be like, uh... like a person. [...] She'll be alive, but she won't be a person. [...] It's not a tree, she's not gonna be a tree. It's similar to a tree, but she's not gonna be a tree

"For Vine staff she still treats it as a normal arm since she can feel with it and whatnot, probably uses it to her advantage since she can grow stuff off of it"
