Wilma Bishop (ウィルマ・ビショップ, Wiruma Bishoppu) is a witch of the Isle of Wight Detachment Group, originating from Britannia and originally attached with the Faraway Land Air Force. She is the older sister of Lynette Bishop from the 501st Joint Fighter Wing, and the daughter of the veteran of the First Neuroi War Minnie Bishop.

Her familiar, like her younger sister Lynette, is the Scottish Fold cat, although unlike Lynette, the characteristic folding ears of the Scottish Fold are only apparent on Wilma.

BackgroundEdit

Wilma is the daughter of a wealthy and upper class merchant, and Minnie Bishop, a veteran Witch of the First Neuroi War who fought in London. She is the eldest sister in the Bishop family. Her father went to college together with Flying Officer Schade's father, and they competed with each other in sports as well as academics. Patricia's family was friendly with the Bishops during her early years, and Patricia's father sometimes tries to stir up a feeling of rivalry between the two families, but Schade herself doesn't really seem to care.

She showed her talent as a witch in her childhood. However, she entered the Flight Academy in Faraway Land, the new continent, instead of Britannia, her home country. Knowing that the enlistment procedures and training period for the Britannian Air Force were long, Wilma went to Faraway Land alone, and after receiving her mechanized air infantry qualifications there, she returned to Europe as part of a deployment to aid in the defense of Britannia. Her affiliation was the Britannian Commonwealth Faraway Land 416 Squadron. She took down a Reconnaissance type Neuroi with her teammate above The Strait of Dover in 1941.

As an air infantryman, she did not have any particulary noteworthy skills, and never participated in any large operations. As the moment she joins to the Isle of Wight Detachment Group, she was most experienced Witch in the group. She continued fightning, protecting London, until she was 20, at which point she retired.

She is interested in mature men such that after her retirement at 20 years old she married a Faraway Land commissioned Air Force officer who is 30 years older than her who was her senior, surprising her family and friends.

Personality Edit

In contrast to her sister, Lynette, she is very active and a vibrant ball of energy. Naturally bright and playful, at home she is not unlike her sister, and loves both making and eating sweets. However, one constant source of worry for her is how the eating part affects her weight. Optimist, openminded and sacrificed, she has a bad habit of sleeping wrongly in other bedrooms. She is also a little jealous of her sister and has a surprisingly strong will to act. Her breasts' are smaller than Lynette's.

She also has a close relationship with (at the moment) Flight Lieutenant Rudel and Pilot Officer Beurling whom were both drinking buddies and her colleages in the early times of the war.

AbilitiesEdit

She serves as the squadron's sharpshooter and possesses the ability to control the flight of projectiles to a limited extent. It would also appear she can charge magical energy into the shots to increase their effectiveness. This power, Ballistic Stabilization (弾道安定, Dandō Antei) allow her to affect bullets and other objects thrown in flight. Classified in the Telekinesis lineage. Being the sibling of Lynne, she has the same magic ability than her, albeit, she can use it with much greater prowess.

As an air infantryman, she did not have any particulary noteworthy skills.

Ace ArchetypeEdit

She is likely based on Canadian WWI pilot Billy Bishop's son, Arthur, as Billy Bishop is the pilot archetype for her mother Minnie Bishop.
