Veruca / Daisy

By Keith McDonald

Veruca went from frustrated intern to Treguard's assistant in the Geek Week episode of Knightmare.


Veruca is initially found cleaning the castle, complaining at the conditions. She signed up for an internship after misunderstanding Sylvester the Jester's proposal to 'clean up the dungeon'.

Veruca had hoped to be challenging orcs and creatures of darkness, so the prospect of a quest intrigues her.

Veruca (Isy Suttie) prepares to cast a spell in the Geek Week episode of Knightmare (2013).

She attempts a REFRESH spell to awaken Treguard from his slumber. From there, she seamlessly becomes his assistant. He renames her Daisy, saying she cannot be too choosy.

What you're called is how you're called, if you get my drift...

Veruca

Once the quest begins, Veruca is more subservient and only gets involved when the team meets other in-game characters.

She rebukes Treguard for not knowing Sylvester the Jester and warns the team about the notorious thief, Theodora Snitch.

Veruca gets visibly alarmed at the dungeon dangers, especially the 'Slice Me, Dice Me' challenge.

But by the end, she is absorbed by the game and wants to continue - if the game allows it.
