Annabeth "Beth" Tezuka (who may be known as Annabeth "Beth" Tezuka-Vasquez in the future) is one of the main characters of the web series Bravest Warriors, and is the only known female member of the team. She is voiced by Liliana Mumy.
In the original animated short, Beth was seemingly unaware of Chris' interest in her and she could not hear him when he finally confessed his feelings. In the series however, she seems to be aware of Chris's feelings, but both are hesitant to acknowledge it.
BackgroundDuring her younger years, Beth was still a good friend and playmate of Chris, Danny, and Wallow. She and Chris would even ride on her Paralyzed Horse, which was struck by the knowledge of the Space-Time Calliope. Beth's father was the leader of the Courageous Battlers before they were lost on the See-Through Zone, and he was eaten by the Aeon Worm until her teenage years. In the meantime, she joined with her friends and together they became the Bravest Warriors.
Even as a born warrior at heart, Beth sports a cute, energetic, and fun-loving demeanor and was too hesitant to admit her feelings for Chris. This was likely because through the years (before the Aeon Worm was imprisoned at the See-Through Zone) the Aeon Worm had been eating all of her feelings. Beth is liked by the rest of her team and has even earned the unrequited affection of Chris (which she is seemingly aware of but never mentions). Later on, she admitted her feelings towards him. She calls Chris her "soulmate" and told him that she loves him. She also became angry and expressed doubt and jealousy when she discovered that Chris and Plum have been spending time together in "Season of the Worm", mostly because she loves Chris.
Although good-natured, she is tough and completely capable of handling herself. Beth is very artistic and apparently doesn't believe in the ideals of fate nor romance. In "Aeon Worm" she also demonstrated a certain level of submissiveness to her father, calling him "sir" after he speaks to her, suggesting she was raised in a strict household. Nonetheless, she realized he was not sane and didn't let this stop her from punching him in the face.
Beth has a light-skinned warm-toned complexion with long black hair. She wears a white short-sleeved coat with a green and gray jumpsuit, a green belt with a peach-colored sticker on it, and black, high-ankle boots. She also wears gray sports armbands. She wears a green swimsuit that looks like a bikini and a towel which wraps covers her swimsuit in "Gas Powered Stick." She appears to have Japanese heritage, having the Japanese surname of Tezuka.
Weapons & Abilities
- Resplendent Maelstrom - In the pilot episode presented to Nickelodeon, she had a red whip which is able to send energy beams at the target, causing them to become bewildered, though this was only seen in the Pilot episode, and may not be canon.
- Red Cat - By rubbing her sticker, like the other members of her team, she can summon an animal of sorts; a regular cat (dull pink in color) that can take on different forms, all of them cat themed. Besides her whip, it has transformed into a giant cat (Memory Donk), though it can probably change into other forms as well.
- Cat Lasettes - Beth sports a red whip (which comes from the sticker on her belt), with ropes shaped like kitten heads. (Series).
- Poison Cat Claws - Beth can launch her cat ropes to scratch her enemies with its poisoned claws, disorienting and blinding the target (Lavarinth).
- Cat Bubble - Her sticker pet can become a giant cat-shaped bubble that envelops and protects those inside it. It can seemingly grow bigger than a spacebus and will always land safely on the ground (Memory Donk).
- Passenger Particles - In Bravest Warriors Comic 20# it is revealed that Beth's DNA contains passenger particles which act like Evolution Accelerators. Basically, they can make an organism grow fast in hours or minutes. Because of this, the aeon worm chose Beth as its host to absorb all her feelings due to their accelerating effect. This ability was likely the reason why Mr.Tezuka made a door that leads her through the See-Trought Zone were the Aeon Worm is trapped.
Beth and Chris kiss in the episode "Memory Donk" when they both lost their memories, but when Beth regains her memories (while she is kissing Chris) she retaliates by saying they're just friends and playfully punches his chest.
In "Bravest Warriors Comic #20" Beth finally acknowledges her feelings for Chris. When the tractor beam pulls the Bravest Warriors, Beth convinced Chris to come with them and told Chris that she loved him.
In the episode "Hamster Priest" when Beth comes back to her dimension, she stammers whilst trying to say that Chris and Plum were frenching, possibly being jealous of Plum.
Plum and Beth are close friends who enjoy hanging out.
Danny and Beth had a previous relationship in the pilot, but this has been removed from the series.
Danny and Beth are good friends, and Danny acknowledges Chris' crush on Beth. While he does tease him about it, Danny almost always supports it.Danny and Beth sometimes fight like cats and dogs, funny because of their signature animals being a cat (Beth) and a dog (Danny).
Danny and Beth have a playful flirty friendship and often tease each other (usually through insults).
In "Dan Before Time", when Danny asks her if she was daydreaming about his "juicy lips" again she laughed and said "Gross!" but she did not deny it.
In the Bravest Warriors comic series issue #4, she said that Danny has a "nice butt, so nice it should be illegal".
One part in the episode "Memory Donk", where Beth was talking to Chris, Danny interrupts and says "Shoot, I could be your husband! Or your dentist! I have no idea." (note Danny and Beth had both lost their memory at this time).
In "The Bunless", when Danny had to dance with Beth, at first she seemed unsure, but then she seemed to be enjoying dancing with Danny, and vice-versa.
In "Cereal Master" Danny calls Beth a "fresh little chuck-wagon" as a term of endearment for Beth and mentions her "cinnamon girl air." Though it should be noted that he was saying this to motivate Chris to start a relationship with her.
In "Season of the Worm" , while the Warriors follow Mitch on the Falcon Suit, Danny made a flirty comment to Beth. Quoting "Put away your lady tears Darlin', I'll take care of you."
Friends, and teammate.
Beth's horse somehow acquired the ability to become fully sentient and highly intelligent after acquiring knowledge of the Space-Time Calliope. Beth seems to have a great deal of love and care towards him. He apparently sacrificed himself to save her from the Aeon Worm.Beth has had her horse since she was six (a total of ten years so far). It seems that her horse has been neglected by Beth because she doesn't ride with him much anymore. Her horse still cares for her and has knowledge of the future and past, as he has discovered the Meaning of Life, and understands the principles of Forever.
From his log of July 3, 3085, he says that although having supreme knowledge of forever he still stands by Beth and cares for her and is bothered by the fact that when Beth is in pain, he cannot help.
