Tammy is a homebody. Suited only to one environment, she
likes to settle in one spot and not move away from it. For her, this is
the water. In a pool, lake, pond, ocean or stream, she moves like a
Flotsam. On land, however, she moves like a baby giraffe.
Colliding into things is one of Tammy's fortes. Her mind is constantly
adrift in some fantasyland, surely far more exciting than our world,
considerably less realistic. She is always content, but never with
she is or what she is doing -- rather, with whatever she has invented
for herself inside her mind. She has an odd and quirky sense of humour,
and tends to see things in ways that others can't. Although she is very
relaxed and mellow, she doesn't like to be jostled out of the safety of
her daydreams with any kind of change. She also has trouble making
friends, but will do anything to keep the ones she has.
When she was much younger, she made friends with the much more bouncy
and cheerful Layla (Sailor Elephante), but their friendship was eventually ended by
move to Tyrannia. Although Layla hated Tammy's Quiggle, the two were
very close friends, and became so again after their reunion.
Tammy tends to be lazy and not like much activity or excitement
of course, if she's swimming). She is somewhat anxious in social
settings, and feels much safer at home or in the water. Detached and
dreamy, she tends to doze off at inappropriate times. This is most
embarrassing for her when it happens at school. She has made numerous
efforts to stop, including seeing a sleep counsellor.
One of her worst problems is her habit of leaving sentences unfinished.
Her speech is often vague. She is slow to think and slow to act -- she
can't react quickly in bad situations, which is why, despite her
excellent swimming abilities, she has not yet been able to become a
Despite all appearances, Tammy is a smart and observant girl with a
sharp mind, which contributes to her odd sense of humour. Although
she's not particularly organized, she never forgets or misplaces

and detachment from the real world seems to be a choice, not a
Tammy seems to dislike most people. She is not particularly fond of any
of the other Sailor Neopets, even including Leslie. Layla seems to be
her only friend of the bunch and often has to prod her into
participating in battles. Tammy does so reluctantly, but well.

Her mother, Rana, is gracious, slim, young and entirely nondescript.
has an extreme talent for blending into the background and has done
for most of Tammy's life. Terry, her father, is a ponderous and
thoughtful man, from whom Tammy certainly got her imaginative side.
are very close, although Tammy has her own account.
MrSippy is a hyperactive, mischievious, but not really malicious cloud
Quiggle. Tammy is unable to control him and doesn't really care to, so
he's often free to run around and cause trouble for other people. He's usually cheerful, but is apt to use Quiggle Squirt on people who frustrate him - or just for a laugh. MrSippy doesn't talk; Tammy is best at deciphering his expressions, body language, and gearing-up-for-a-squirt posture.
As Sailor Quiggle
Henshin: She holds her pen in the air and cries, "Quiggle Neo Power,
Make Up!" A torrent of water spouts from the pen and surrounds her, and
when it disappears, she is fully transformed.
Attack: Quiggle Squirt - she forms a ball of water in her hand and
directs it at her enemies in a convenient "orb" or "spray" format.
When writing her:
- She's not much of a talker. Her speech is kind of cryptic, vague and
hard to understand. She doesn't always finish her sentences.
- She doesn't like to make new friends. She's somewhat distant around
the other sailors and prefers to follow orders rather than take
- She's much more focused and attentive as Sailor Quiggle, although
- She tends to be content with most things as long as she doesn't have
to do anything extreme.
- She's klutzy - she walks into, drops, spills, trips over and lands on
- Her Quiggle sometimes helps her in battle.
