A useful portable elf fighter and lingerie model.  You can use her to defeat your enemies and showcase your sleepwear designs to prospective buyers.  She also conveniently folds up for easy transport.

I think Vampi was careless with her blade and accidentally sliced her right buttcheek completely off...

Aquaman's like "uh, you know, you don't have to be in the boobs or butt pose, nobody's watching", and she's like "don't you understand this is a comic book, they're always watching! you can never be too careful!"

Never get involved in a bikini fight in Canada

Poor Chastity, she fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well known is never get into a bikini fight during a blizzard.

She wants to win the Escher Girls Triple Crown (boobs, butt and crotch) so bad she's willing to brave frostbite to do it.  A true competitor.
