From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe
Sunda was born in a backwater Malaysian village to farmers, the second-youngest of six children. Unlike her siblings, she showed an incredible aptitude for learning and, during those times when there was little work to do, would often travel to nearby towns to visit their libraries, often disappearing for days at a time. This dedication to learning helped her earn her GED at 15 and her MBA at 19, after which she left her village for the nearest city make her fortune in the world.
Unfortunately, Malaysia isn't much known for being a hub of conventional commerce, so Sunda went with the next best thing: Slave trading. Unlike her peers, who relied mostly on lost college students from America, impoverished pre-teen prostitutes and the last vestiges of tribal cultures, Sunda went with tourists from China and Japan, transforming them from gaping, easily-awed sightseers into silent, deadly masters of ninjitsu . The ninja slave trade was, up until this point, an untapped market that Sunda quickly took advantage of, utterly dominating it and using the momentum to expand her business into other branches of human trafficking and assorted violations of UN charters.
While on a trip to the Rogue Isles, she encountered Glittershot, Legitimate Businessman extraordinare and Port Oakes' premier (and thus far, only) fairy drug dealer. Sunda was intrigued by Glittershot's business, a feeling that turned out to be mutual, and the two hit it off admirably, comparing notes and business practices. Currently they control a small yet notable portion of the region's vice trade, with little competition from the Marcones and Verandis. Mostly because it's kind of hard to get trained ninja servants and fey-based narcotics through traditional means.
While not as prone to public appearances as some Businessmen, Sunda's influence is still felt in the region: Tourism from the western Pacific rim is the lowest it's been in nearly ten years, and very few people of Japanese descent travel to the Rogue Isles without either weapons, metahuman powers or bodyguards .
Sunda is financially-oriented, dedicated to customer satisfaction, extremely picky about the quality of her products and expects nothing but the best from the people who work for her. All of these would normally be admirable traits, except for the part where she sells people into - and employs - slave labor. Then they're absolutely horrible traits belonging to an absolutely horrible person, but it's not like people go to the Rogue Isles for the colorful, friendly locals, now do they?
Negative Energy Manipulation
Sunda can, thanks to what was probably a highly illegal operation that may or may not have involved black-market human organs harvested from heroes and the services of Dr. Meenen, generate particles of negative energy in the environment around her. Said particles can absorb light (cloaking her in shadows), disrupt the synaptic functions of human beings (inducing paralysis) or just drag the life energy kicking and screaming out of people .
Ninja. Lots and Lots of Ninja
Sunda usually employs a half-dozen of her best ninja as personal bodyguards when she's traveling. Some people might balk at the classification of other sentient beings as "equipment," but the important thing is that Sunda doesn't. So she has people as equipment. Deal.
Sunda and Elly Sparklejoy
For lack of a better term, Sunda is Elly Sparklejoy's madam. After the fairy hit the skids, Sunda found her and pressed her into prostitution, coking up on a cocktail of street drugs, pixie dust and whatever that stuff is that comes off of Glittershot's wings and selling her to various unsavory types in the Rogue Isles. Reactions to this were largely mixed, mostly because it had been a while since anyone in the Rogue Isles had heard of a character that had a genuinely tragic, non-cliche life and backstory.
- ↑ As explained in Holy Shit NINJAS' page, the essence of ninjosity began in Japan, so it should come as no surprise that the greatest ninja potential would be in people from and near said country.
- ↑ Look, I'll believe that your character did all that crap you said s/he did on your wiki page if you believe that Sunda did all the stuff I said she did. Deal? Deal.
- ↑ Sunda later commented that the operation was "the second-best thirty-five thousand dollars I ever spent."
- ↑ That's right, I went there.
This article is fine as it stands, but any Businessman with something to say should add to it.
