Proposed Canon

First Appearance: IPTSF Text 50

Judy Gale was Overlord of Haffaton. She was kept in a drugged stupor at the end of a yellow brick road and close to an emerald City.

She is described as a ghostly looking woman wearing a blue gingham dress and a long silk scarf, with her short white hair streaked with black and adorned with a dirt-covered diamond tiara. Her signamancy indicated personal decay; she is thin, skeletal to the point of weighing nothing at all; her teeth are rotten or missing; she seems to be missing her eyebrows, but marks had been drawn on her skin above her deep brown eyes which sort of resembled them.

She uses walking stick that appears to be broom with the straw burnt mostly off; it is implied to be magical, and capable of Flight. Around one ankle she wears some kind of Magic Item in the shape of an ankle bracelet.

In IPTSF Text 51, Judy Gale uses the word 'kill' instead of 'croak' while speaking to Jillian, but there is no explanation yet as to why she would use this term.

Real World References

She is named for the actress (Judy Garland) and main character (Dorothy Gale) from the Wizard of Oz.

Her gingham blue dress is a reference to the blue gingham dress worn by Judy Garland when portraying Dorothy Gale in the Wizard of Oz movie.

The magic ankle bracelet may be a shackle, but from it artwork it appears far more to resemble an electronic curfew tag.

Speculation

Judy could be a native of Earth, and brought to Erfworld for some currently unknown purpose, much like Parson has been. This would be in keeping with the Wizard of Oz references that this character seems to be heavily involved in.

Special Note

Judy is one of the few characters to have been a subject of Retconjuration; originally named Dorothy, Rob decided she was a more complex character, and Retconned her name to reflect that. WoT-11/15/2012
