She is a tiny, delicate girl. Her skin is the dappled brown of a doe, her hair a cloud of white around her head like a dandelion, and there's a miniature pair of blue-gray butterfly wings on her back. She’s also got at least some pixie in her, if not some imp.
She likes blowing things up. The Bomb is very blunt while being nice and friendly towards Jude Duarte. She is incredibly loyal to the Court of Shadows. Since she is a spy, the Bomb is very good at being sly and swift. Always eager for an assignment.
The Bomb’s people died in a brutal internecine Court war a century ago, leaving her on her own. She went into the human world and became a small-time crook. She wasn’t particularly good at it. Mostly she was just using glamour to hide her mistakes.
That’s when she met the Roach. He spotted her and he pointed out that while she might not be much of a thief, she was a good at concocting potions and bombs. They went around together for decades. The Bomb described the Roach as being so affable, so dapper and charming, that he’d con people right to their faces, no magic required.
The Roach then had the idea that they should steal from the Court of Bone in the West, however, the con went wrong. The Court carved them up and filled them full of curses and geas. The Court of Bones then forced The Bomb and the Roach to serve them.
They screwed up a job, and Dain Greenbriar got hold of them. He had a scheme for them to betray the Court of Bone and join him. So they did and ended up in Dain’s service instead.
