|“||For all we know, he's one of them. Give him nothing!||”|
– Warrior Woman
Upon first meeting Max, the Warrior Woman was wary of him, not altogether appreciating Max's delivery of their wounded friend. She berated him for his apparent insensitivity to their situation, by only wanting his bartered gasoline so that he could leave immediately; "Trading in human flesh! Mercenary trash!"
She was later proven wrong about the Road Warrior when he delivered the promised Tanker Truck Rig, and helped save the fort when Humungus' gang attacked. She went to him afterwards and said: "Listen, I was wrong about you, and I'm sorry."
During the diversion Max created for Pappagallo's tribe's escape, the Warrior Woman accompanied Max upon the Mack R-600. She eventually met her death at the hands of Wez, who fired three darts into her chest.
Character origins Edit
Originally the Warrior Woman was envisioned as a man, but according to George Miller, the sexuality in the Wasteland became interchangable, so it was decided that the character should be a woman. Another character whose sex was changed was the Golden Youth, originally envisioned as a woman.
The Warrior Woman was also designed to be attractive to Max in a specific way. Byron Kennedy had especially put emphasis on Warrior Woman's large scar across her cheek as a kind of physical paradox that would render her attractive to Max. "Otherwise Max would be too shy and too ethical to get involved with her"
The Warrior Woman acted as guardsman within Oil Refinery's compound and had very keen eyesight. This ability gave her an advantage when using her compound bow and arrow.
