Just gonna say, I had to do that sinister little grin, in honor of Vegeta. The one true master.
As some people (likely very few) know I've had a Saiyan OC for years, and this is her. WOO HOO! (I missed DBOnline, so I didn't get the chance to make her till now, and they actually had mods for me to get her pretty damn close to my head image.) Also, I added a tail, cause the Saiyans SHOULD HAVE TAILS! At least give us the option to have one or not, instead of needing to wear the armor. Guess it would be confusing with having to fight Ozarus and stuff, but whatever. Tali has a tail.
Since I came up with her when I was super duper little her backstory's fluctuated a bit, but originally she was cloned from DNA remnants of planet Vegeta by someone who wanted to revive the Saiyan race. Similar to Freeza's mind set to make them serve him, but being a Saiyan she wasn't gonna put up with that shit. Of course, this man didn't have Freeza's strength, but he was a scientist and had installed a genetic off switch. Kinda like with what Dr. Gero had for 17 and 18, but not a literal switch. It's more like installing a code word in her brain. If that doesn't work... drug her. Because Fatalni got to the point where she was more trouble than she was worth, (and had pissed off this mysterious no named scientist (who I'm gonna now call Dr. Muck) by destroying all of his other specimens) he sold her to a collector, since Saiyans are virtually extinct. Getting word of a male specimen on Earth, they were heading there to try and collect him, when Fatalni broke free. Which is how she inevitably ended up on Earth.
I had that this scientist dude knew a lot of "ancient" long forgotten things about the Saiyan race, and trained her in such. One of which was me making up a Saiyan language. In this head cannon was that the language hadn't been used by any Saiyans for years, but being part of the royal family, Vegeta was obligated to learn this. I only wanted this, so that when Fatalni met Vegeta they could have a conversation in Saiyanese, or whatever the hell I called it. At some point she tried to teach Trunks. He picked up on it, but gets mocked mercilessly for his lousy accent... cause that's what fluent beings do.
Oh yea, she's supposed to exist in the future Trunks timeline, inevitably hooking up. (mayhaps meeting Vegeta through time travel shenanigans) Mainly cause they left his story completely open, before Xenoverse. With the introduction of this, I'm wondering if I should just have her come from an older timeline, and they just meet cause she's a fellow time patroller. (Or the TFS path. The dragon revived everyone killed by Freeza and his men. That's a long ass list, when you really think about it. The Saiyans would be on there. Can't quite remember how the anime worded it, but the manga doesn't specify just people on Namek. So sad. Vegeta could have gone home, all this time.)
On final note of interest - back when Fatalni was created, I didn't realize all Saiyan's names were some variation of vegetables. I realized some were, but didn't think it was a hard and fast rule. Initially I named her after Xera's daughter from Lion King 2, Vitani. Once I realized that whether it be English or Japanese, they were all vegetables, I sat down and started looking up different vegetables to see about changing her name. I then discovered that there is a pepper that comes from central/south Africa called Fatalii. So, I lucked out. Good thing too, cuz I didn't want to change her name. I just like to try and stick with continuity.
