When the King employed his Good Knights in Spider-spun Tights, Queen Marcheline simply had to have a counterpart troupe/troop so she aggregated the Steampunk Sisters: Junketine, Jumblegine, Joustine and Javeline. They started off as a collection of half dolls decorating the never played piano in the extremely boring home of probably the most boring bachelor that ever lived in the flapping era of 1920’s England. His dearly departed spinster sister had made them for her dearly beloved grand baby piano and now that she had tinkled herself out of the world her dolls sat dusty, defunct and frustrated in the gloomy home which was always shut up. The only thing the half dolls could really do were push ups and handstands so their upper body strength burgeoned. Quite the most exciting thing that ever happened in that gentleman’s home was when a wild Christmas turkey crashed through the drawing room window in the middle of a full moon night landing directly upon the piano stool. The dolls seized upon the opportunity and stampeded across the piano on their hands, engaging their fully developed biceps and pecs and clutched on to the turkey for dear life. Next they cajoled the poor discombobulated and doddering fellow to wing it back out of there as quickly as possible before he was caught and roasted for Christmas dinner (as if the bachelor were ever so possessed of such exertions in the first place!) The threat worked a charm and post-haste he followed instruction and the dolls found themselves at last liberated to the outside world.
The turkey deposited them in the commodious hollow of an extremely high tree in the middle of Royal Tunbridge Wells where they lived quite comfortably for decades watching the world go by down below. It was infinitely more interesting than watching a boring bachelor’s tedious repetitive daily routine but they hankered for some greater purpose in life. Of course when they caught wind of the whisperings of the famed Royal Doll Town they knew they must get there and they hitched a ride with a party of jays. Queen Marcheline immediately recognized their true potential and had them rejuvenated and reinvented. All those years of idle existence meant loads of pent up energy. Joustine was a Marie Antoinette type half doll while the other three were flapper style. This mix, plus the decades spent observing the continuous change of street style fashion steered their sensibility towards an eclectic mix, hence their slight steam punky leaning. They were fitted and kitted with gangly mechanical legs by the Royal Metal Works Studio under the auspices of Rouagine and Metabert Mécanique. The novelty of bipedalism was a thrill. The Queen was right, the Steampunk Sisters were pepped up deluxe and each mastered a form of martial arts namely Tai Ji, Taekwondo, Jujutsu and Aikido. They then went on a short course with the Combat Masteress Takako Asano, a personal friend of the Queen's on Facebook in case any person requires training, and together they cross pollinated their skills and came up with the grand finale of a hybridized kick-ass combat discipline called aTak-As. They were not permitted to pursue armed combat with melee weapons, however, because the Queen, as you know, cannot stomach that sort of butchery. Like the King's Guard, they have their own sentry homes between those of the Good Knight’s in the north-east, south-east, south-west and north-west positions, the design and style differing a bit to distinguish the Queen’s Guard from the King’s.
