Princess Sunny began her life as a clone of Queen Sable Aradia
. The details of how they acquired the future Mother of Bunnies' DNA remain fuzzy, but as Sable-rah points out, when she was eight years old, the time at which Princess Sunny's life began in a test tube, she had perpetually skinned knees and really long hair, and a suborned school nurse or a chance encounter with a hairbrush could have easily explained this.
However, The Company
intended to corrupt the House Lapin
family line and make their creation more susceptible to their influence, and they thought exposing the developing fetus to the weird energies of The Void
would accomplish this.
The result was to eliminate their chances of replacing Sable, as they had intended, completely. The Void exposure changed Sunny's DNA in significant and unanticipated ways. Not only does she look nothing at all like her "twin" sister, but she has significant differences in her anatomy that can only be described as "weird" and "alien." She became even less
susceptible to the Company's influence, as none of the technology they'd developed to accomplish this took to Sunny's alien DNA.
For a time, they kept the child that had resulted from this manipulation, feeling that they might yet get some use out of her. However, the person they had assigned as her caretaker had a crisis of conscience, and did whatever was in her power to get little Sunny away from their clutches -- which turned out to be successful.
What Sunny's caretaker, the woman she had grown up calling her mother, did tell her when she was looking into things was that the person assigned as her caretaker during her time under the Company’s care had made sure she was erased from their system. All evidence of her DNA profiles, her appearance, and everything else that she could get her hands on were wiped from their databases, as far as she knew. Then she fled, and hid Sunny.
Her mother/caretaker knew nothing else beyond that, and never heard from their mysterious benefactor again.
Sunny and Sable confirmed these details when they were able to parse through the data packet that DM Stretch
"liberated" from the Company's database at the end of The Second Word War
. The Company almost certainly now knows that Sunny is their escaped experiment -- but there's not much they can do about it.
Furthermore, they may have sown the seeds of their own destruction. Not only has learning about this steeled Sable Aradia's resolve to wipe them out of existence, but by creating Sunny, they may have created the most implacable foe they have ever faced. And rather than viewing her as a threat, Sable has embraced her sister fully as a confidant and ally, one whom she feels balances her powers and natural inclinations perfectly.
You see, unfortunately for the Company, Sable is Voidtouched
Princess Sunny knows that her life started out in a laboratory. After she had been given to her mother, she had a good childhood in the sense that her mother was caring, and raised her as well as she could with no help. Society at large was not kind to Sunny, considering the girl too strange, too vapid, too inattentive to be worth their time and attention. And those that did pay attention to her fell into two categories in her mind: The Hurtful Ones and Friends.
She started to itch though, to learn how to write and use the power that her words called forth, so started to travel, looking for the microscopic bread crumbs that were there if one was just willing to work for them.
Then the The First Word War
happened and she found herself sheltering with the Cosmic Kraken themself, Coffee Quills
. They showed her a new world and showed her how to use her words for good. She stood by Coffee as house after house fell to the Undead Horde, feeling a deep tug
from somewhere that wasn’t the literomancy that they all used to fight the Undead with.
When House Lapin
fled to House Mollusca
was the first that she had truly met Sable Bright-Eyes
and the rest of her House. From there she felt a connection that the two discovered to be familial; one that would grow through the following Tourney of Tales.
During the Tourneys, Sunny found The Void
: a deep, mystical place that held secrets and knowledge that wrapped around her like an old familiar blanket. She told no one as she started to walk the paths, discovering where her shadow tentacles had come from and connecting to her Lapin Roots.
With another Tome War on the horizon, she decided that it was time to join her fellow Bunnies in the Fluffle and asked her sister if she had room for a Void Bunny, speaking the words for the first time. She was welcomed and stood strong with House Lapin, staying friends with those in House Mollusca even with all of the fighting going on between the houses.
Sunny and Sable took time in getting to know each other between fights and scuffles and watching their fellow houses fall. Finding out their connection near the end of the war, Sunny was named Princess of House Lapin.
Sunny, to this day, states that she refuses to take The Carrot Throne
. Her newly-acknowledged nephew, Prince Jean
, had every right to it and would continue to have every right to it. She highly doubts that she could pass the Rituals enough to be accepted by the Carrot Throne due to her unique biology.
Unfortunately for Sunny, a random flying biscuit the hardness of a petrified hockey puck took her out for the last bit of the war. She was most put out, having wanted to stand strong with her fellow Tome Knights
, but understood that sometimes one must care for oneself even in the midst of a great battle.
After the war was won by the Grand Alliance
once more, Sunny recovered from the biscuit to the head, which had left her with a two day migraine and knot on her temple, by visiting the Void.
She might have gotten lost for a while, and only came back after the first assassination attempt on her sister, due to the fact that the Void spit her out with instructions not to eat anyone.
After her sister had recovered, Sunny took time in getting to know her fellow Voiders
and her sister even more, holding meetings with her nephew Lord Galakrond
of House Meles
. After a feast held in a pocket dimension, Sable once more was nearly killed before being brought back to life by her ‘Kind Bear powers’ (as Lord Galakrond describes them) and everyone’s love for her. So Sunny did something very stupid and looked into a Mirror
, and promptly forgot what she had seen in the damage doing this inflicted.
Sunny was asked to take on more royal duties during the July 2022 Tourney of Tales, especially as her sister, the Voiders, and her family were subjected to a public smear campaign by the GOT News Network
and their new corporate sponsor, The Company
The Chaos Bunny joined in on The Battle of the Book
as a support writer, and was awarded the title Defender of the Realm
for her efforts.
By the time The Third Word War
rolled around, she was a frontline literomantic military commander, and one of Sable-rah's closest and most trusted confidants. The three "Bun Sibs" (Sunny, Sable, and Tempest Kwake
) became an inseparable force; boon to their friends, bane to their enemies.
