This cube craft paper toy is Faye Valentine, a wanted bounty head and a member of the bounty hunting crew aboard the Bebop, based on the anime series Cowboy Bebop. This paper craft model is designed by alonso jacobo.
Faye Valentine is a woman with an attitude. She maintains a tough exterior because of the people she often associates with both in bounty hunting and her former life as a confident woman and scam artist. When she is after a bounty head Faye often acts cocky and overconfident.
Faye Valentine puts herself into situations where men lust after her however as evidenced by Session 12, Jupiter Jazz Part 1 she may get a thrill out of being desired. There are only few instances when Faye has shown an interest of love in a man.
There are times when Faye can be soft-spoken, sentimental and vulnerable. When Faye originally came out of her cryogenic sleep, she had anxiety about her future but did not respond with anger or violence. She did, however, attempt to run away from her problems which has become a common solution for her when life seems difficult. She also has a great taste in many strange foods such as eating dog foods.
Faye Valentine was born on Earth and spent 54 years in a coma under cryogenic sleep. Given the evidence from “Session 18: Speak Like a Child”, whereby video footage of Faye’s past is viewed by the crew members, a specific shot of the Merlion seems to suggest that she lived in Singapore during her life on Earth. She awoke with an insurmountable amount of hospital debt due to her time in cryogenic sleep, that causes her to lie, cheat and steal her way in a world that was largely unfamiliar to her. When she’s not chasing bounties with the crew, she often gambles away her share of the bounty.
Faye Valentine awoke from a 54-year coma after being injured in a Space Shuttle accident when she was 20. Because technology wasn’t advanced enough to save her at the time, doctors put Faye into cyrogenic sleep until her injuries were finally healed 54 years later. Faye awoke with retrograde amnesia, not able to remember anything from her past. Because of the Gate Accident, all of her personal records were lost to the lab, with the only remaining information being her first name. Upon waking, she fell in love with a con artist who faked his own death and left her with his own insurmountable debt, which she unknownginly agreed to inherit.
Her purple hair is most likely a natural color because, after watching beta tapes she made as a child before the Gate Accident, her younger self also had purple hair. However, in the “Cowboy Bebop” manga, while describing a wanted serial killer they are hunting, she states that she fits his preferences as an “Asian Beauty” with “straight black hair”. The tape from her past also suggests she was from Singapore, where black hair is a common physical trait.
Her outfit, consisting of short shorts, boots, a skimpy undershirt with an overcoat worn loosely, and her short hairstyle gives the impression that she is an aged homage to the young character of Mathilda from the movie The Professional. Just like Mathilda she has been dealt an unfair hand by the world and is now street-smart and tough because of this. [Source: wikia]
