Warspite

HMS Warspite was a Queen Elizabeth-class battleship built for the Royal Navy during the early 1910s. When she was launched in 1913 the use of oil as fuel and untried 15-inch guns were revolutionary concepts in the naval arms race between Britain and Germany, a considerable risk for Winston Churchill, then First Lord of the Admiralty, and Admiral John Fisher who had advocated the design.

Her actions earned her the most battle honours ever awarded to an individual ship in the Royal Navy. For this and other reasons, Warspite gained the nickname the "Grand Old Lady" after a comment made by Admiral Sir Andrew Cunningham in 1943 while she was his flagship.

However, the new "fast battleships" proved to be an outstanding success during the First World War. Decommissioned in 1945, Warspite ran aground under tow in 1947 on rocks near Prussia Cove, Cornwall, and was eventually broken up nearby.

Character

Appearance

  • Warspite holds in her left hand one of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom (The Sovereign's Orb to be precise).
  • She has long blonde hair styled in a french braid and blue eyes conforming to the Japanese stereotype of Western foreigners, along with a broader nose and face than the Japanese shipgirls in the game. Her outfit consists of a long sleeved corseted white off-shoulder dress with a red ribbon placed at the front; said ribbon having a red rose in the middle. On her head she wears a black hairband with a mini crown on the side. Her legwear is comprised of white thighhighs held up by garter straps and high heeled black mary janes. Despite being a Queen Elizabeth-class, her jewelry is moderate and only consists of a couple silver necklaces. The machinery behind her is in the shape of a throne on which she sits on. She carries a globus cruciger in her left hand and a scepter-like mast in her right hand.

Personality

  • Warspite behaves in (the Japanese impression of) the manner of a sedate, high-class British lady. Due to the connection of the English language, several of her lines reference Iowa and Kongou, and she is often depicted in fanart alongside one or both of the two. Due to her war history, she has a connection to several other ships, as well.
  • She also has hourly lines regarding a grudge against the German ships, talking about her shared history with Italian ships Littorio and Roma at the hands of the Luftwaffe, while Zara and Pola fear her.
