Story notes for Kitchen Boss

This is the companion document for "Kitchen Boss, organized to familiarize yourself with characters and locations introduced in the story. Owing to the drastic changes that await in a cutthroat world of the food industry catered to the enlarged masses, this is meant as a reference, not doctrine, as you may encounter these characters (or plan to write them) after significant changes. Gloria and her main staff are outlined in the first section, then rival bosses and other personalities, family & friends of the above and ending with a section of venue depictions. As head-hunting and rivalries are forged, withdrawn, and newly marked in the sand, some characters may start friendly only to become fierce rivals, or former enemies may join the same side. To that end, characters will be listed primarily on where they best fit during their origin.

This document experiences semi-frequent updates, check back for new developments. Message me if a character you have written needs an updated bio, or if I have missed them

Gloria & Company

Gloria Vandergast and those employed in her budding food empire, including cooking talent, administrative and miscellaneous roles.

Gloria Vandergast
"The #1 Kitchen Boss"
Age: 28
Height: 5'4"
Starting weight: 200lbs

A skilled chef and restauranteur, the ambitious Gloria may be too big for her britches in establishing a food franchise empire with an iron fist. Not for a lack of talent or business savvy, mind, but the upstart chef wants to hit it big even if that means drawing the ire of similarly cutthroat chefs. Aiming to keep the poise of a professional businesswoman, the vice-ridden Gloria competes to meet any challenge head-on to expand her brand. Overweight her entire life, Gloria takes the 'fat' label and proudly builds her image around it, despite detractors naming her food unhealthy and her properties unsavory. She knows how to corner an untapped market to fatten her bank as her clientele fattens as well.

Gloria has tan skin and midnight black hair, favoring bold colors such as maroon and pink in her business suits. Large and in charge, she has a squash shaped body and tends to gain all over.

Nicole Harker
"The Trunk-Legged Gigglebox"
Original Author: Keroro04
Age: 29
Height: 4'10"
Starting weight: 250lbs

First hired on when Gloria was opening a new steakhouse, Nicole is very much her contemporary in terms of skill level, outlook and physique. However, Nicole carries more weight in a smaller package of spunk and guile, having absolutely mammoth hips and tree-trunk legs. Rapidly making her way to Gloria's right hand woman, Nicole is typically tasked to oversee operations of a particular restaurant whenever Gloria has business campaigns elsewhere. The two regularly bounce ideas off of each other, although the excitable Nicole enjoys cutting in with jokes and encouraging tomfoolery.

Nicole is a tanned, rotund 'miniscule' woman with brown hair and hazel eyes. Her hips are two huge pillars of fat, the scope of her appetite and short stature making her regularly outweigh her boss.

"Fryup Samurai"
Original Author: Keroro04
Age: 25
Height: 6'0"
Starting weight: 195lbs

A recent tryout promoted to sous-chef, the Japanese-Pacific Tsukiko stands as an imposing figure in the kitchen, being one of the tallest heads. Although plump with rounded hips, her size beguiles an efficient, almost militant dexterity in the kitchen with smooth footwork and utensil use. Her surprising mobility and quick reflexes make her useful next to more corpulent chefs, along with her signature specialty in cooking delicious fried foods. Having spent over ten summers working her uncle's takoyaki truck when she was a teen, Tsukiko is stoic, disciplined and loyal much as her epitaph would suggest, although she can be a tad overzealous... In some story branches she's part of the 'Main Five,' a kitchen crew of applicants including Erika, Emma, Sasha and Garnet.

Tsukiko is moon faced and well padded on her taller frame, with long black hair dyed blue in the front. She rocks a punk look when out of uniform, favoring work boots and dark, neutral tones. She has the propensity to grow more pear shaped.

"Trilling Office Bunny"
Original Author: WritingInTheVoid
Age: 24
Height: 5'6"
Starting weight: 165lbs

A fresh-faced business school graduate hired on to be Gloria's executive assistant, Danni is an observant, dedicated and punctual employee with a good head for numbers and schedules. Its often her job to file the paperwork, setup the meetings and navigate the bureaucratic channels to help transpose Gloria's ambitions into reality. She keeps her boss up to date with the state of her businesses. Although top of her class, Danni was initially in over her head for how hectic Gloria conducts her enterprises and her legendary tantrums, having a slight panic whenever a crisis first arrises lending to her warbling, shrill manner of announcing bad news. Add to that she's the pin-up poster definition of a buxom office secretary with an eye-catching chest, although lacking the self-confidence to live up to her sex appeal, as she's quite timid socially.

Danni is blonde, often with her hair tied back in a bun held together with pens, with ruby glasses and tight office shirts and skirts. It's impossible to work for Gloria without picking up some extra pounds, as her bum is starting to catch up with her chest.

"Spitfire Meat Griller"
Original Author: Keroro04
Age: 30
Height: 5'7"
Starting weight: 138lbs

A recent applicant in Gloria's enterprises, Erika has worked at various restaurants where she has perfected a talent for cooking meat. From steaks, ribs to chops, Erika knows we way around various techniques and game, with a private desire to grill or barbecue any type of animal at least once. With a highland accent and fiery disposition matching her vivid red hair, Erika has a stubbornness and drive to prove herself in the kitchen as a rising star. She's also fond of a good drink. In some story branches she's part of the 'Main Five,' a kitchen crew of applicants including Tsukiko, Emma, Sasha and Garnet.

Erika has plain, almost tomboyish features with shoulder length auburn-red hair and green eyes. She starts as a skinny chef with the potential to grow curvy if she would gain weight.

"The Artisanal Brute"
Original Author: Keroro04
Age: 32
Height: 6'5"
Starting weight: 265lbs

A recent applicant in Gloria's enterprises, Emma arguably has the weakest cooking talent of her elite chefs but is an artist at plate presentation. The way she enhances the experience of fine dining with plating makes her a supportive cornerstone in the kitchen besides her great strength. Tall and beefy before her belly and breasts grew fat, Emma is a tough powerhouse for tasks needing heavy lifting given her strong, nordic stock with rumored viking heritage. She definitely has the resilience and imposing figure, although her delight in intricate, delicate design showcases her deep interests in art contrary to first impressions with her brute efforts. In some story branches she's part of the 'Main Five,' a kitchen crew of applicants including Erika, Tuskiko, Sasha and Garnet.

Emma is a blonde, scandinavian troll of a woman with feminine features and dirty blonde hair. Her height is filled out by her top heavy build with her bloated breasts and great gut.

"Perennial Understudy"
Original Author: Keroro04
Age: 26
Height: 5'3"
Starting weight: 122lbs

A recent applicant in Gloria's enterprises, Sasha a skinny chef able to out compete the other robust cooks Gloria usually fosters thanks to her partnership with Garnet. Serving as the mobile hands and feet to the obese culinary genius, Sasha is soft spoken and results focused, concerned with pleasing others. However, relying on others' expertise to instruct her and her co-dependent tendencies cause her to flounder on her own even with years of tutelage and training. Failed ballet training when she was a child might explain these confidence issues, as she remains a perennial understudy seemingly unable to catalyze her true potential unaided. In some story branches she's part of the 'Main Five,' a kitchen crew of applicants including Erika, Tuskiko, Emma and Garnet.

Sasha is a willowy, dark-haired chef with eastern-slavic looks and accent. She doesn't appear to gain weight all that much but might grow more doughy working at Gloria's restaurant.

"Encyclopedia of Taste"
Original Author: Keroro04
Age: 27
Height: 5'5"
Starting weight: 365lbs

A recent applicant in Gloria's enterprises, the African-American Garnet has an even more refined palette than Gloria's able to notice subtle differences in taste. Add to that an amazing memory for recipe combinations and a love of food and her culinary genius would rival that of her boss. However, it's that love of food and an underlying medical condition that has caused her to blimp into an obese blob unable to cook as effectively compared to when she was thinner. Relying on her partnership with Sasha to serve as her mobility in the kitchen, Garnet uses her extraordinary sensory input to guide the crafting of fantastic tasting dishes. How to effectively capitalize on that talent at her growing size remains a challenge. In some story branches she's part of the 'Main Five,' a kitchen crew of applicants including Erika, Tsukiko, Emma and Sasha.

Garnet is black with frizzy hair and rounded, puffy features. Hers is an almost elephantine obesity with mammoth belly, tremendous backside and drooping breasts, starting to require three chairs to support her enormity.

Kitchen Bosses & Peons

Rival bosses to Gloria Vandergast and the underlings that make up their organizations.

Gina Bianchi
"Fresh-Faced Italian Belle"
Original Author: WritingInTheVoid
Age: 25
Height: 5'4"

Gina Bianchi is the heiress of the well known Bianchi family continuing the clan's culinary legacy. Having recently taken over the reigns of the enterprises after her parents' retirement (Marlon & Sofia Bianchi), the sexy, popular diva of the dining scene mixes her family's mastery of Italian cuisine with Latin, Mexican and Americana infusions as she looks to broaden appeal of the brand. Family is important to her as her wheeling & dealing seeks to foster community connections. However, there's rumors that the old Italian family have 'other business' besides restaurants that may or may not mean mafia ties...regardless, Gina has plenty of connections to draw from and youthful ambition to stick it to her competitors.

Gina is a sexy, svelte olive-skinned bombshell with long black hair and a notable set of hips. While a skinny chef for now, the Bianchi women have a 'curse' of genetics where their hips eventually grow to titanic proportions as their metabolism fails, such a fate already present with her mother Sofia and older sister Izabella.

The sweet-toothed Lacey presents a friendly, demure, trustworthy and sexy persona to the public and legion of fans with her exquisitely perfect baked goods. Her rival kitchen bosses, however, know her sugar-exterior is a front to a nasty, bitchy creme filling with an insult ready for anyone, willing to work her apprentice bakers to the bone in her schemes. Refining her original low-class accent from years training with the best European bakers, Lacey's British stoicism hides her absolute disdain for most American trends.

Lacey is a long haired brunette who dresses in Lindy Bop, throwback vintage dresses. She carries her weight extremely well in an ultra-curvy hourglass body type with godiva hips, large breasts and a growing potbelly, her propensity to increase in size an inevitability in her business.

Cute and chubby, Henrietta rides high on her boss's body positivity spin and is sent undercover to infiltrate rival kitchens to learn the secrets of the business, even though her heart may not always be in it. Of course, she can't help herself with food being readily available and often returns from an assignment pounds heavier than when she went in.

Lacey Truman's test baker at her main location and another of her apprentices in her 'Infernal Affairs' department for scheming. Alicia knows her boss demands perfected reproduction and iteration of her recipes and is unfortunately used to Lacey's two-faced behavior. Rather quiet and stoic, Alicia is diligent about carrying out orders and improving recipes.

Alicia a stocky, strong build with very plain features, not a conventional beauty, with tied back sandy hair. Although not as plump as others in the expat British baker's employ, Alicia shows signs of gaining weight around her face and arms, suggesting she'll gain first in her upper half and outer extremities.

Nat has heavily styled short dark hair, tanned skin, with a nose ring and tattoos emblazoned along her shoulders and thighs. Hers is a thick, plump figure with exaggerated curves, as she tends to gain all over as a voluptuous sex despot.

Family & Relatives

Family to the above tiers of competitive characters, particularly if they aren't immediately associated with the operations of the business or fostering cooking talent.

Estelle Vandergast
"Web Mistress
Original Author: Keroro04
Age: 29
Height: 5'5"
Starting weight: 114lbs

Gloria's older sister by a year, although not the physical big sister (sans height) given she's the thin to Gloria's fat. Estelle is a successful web page designer and short of the times Gloria has begged favors to improve her business websites, she is uninvolved with Gloria's ambitions and finds some of her antics embarrassing. Still, she recognizes that Gloria is an excellent cook and the two remain close, finding time to enjoy time off from their respective careers together. However they do have their off-again moments, as Estelle is something of a health nut and hates when her sister goes overboard on a project, to whit Gloria naturally fires back. The dichotomy of this sisterly bonding and sibling strife might explain her recent chubby chaser tendencies...

Estelle has taller, more angular features than Gloria but the two look very much alike minus the difference of weights. She's also heavily tanned and has midnight black hair she often curls, with her fashion style more modern and feminine to her 'little' sister.

Izabella Bianchi-Molina
"Doubled-Down Bianchi Babe"
Original Author: WritingInTheVoid
Age: 28
Height: 5'5"
Starting weight: 295lbs

The older sister to Gina by three years, Izabella may not have inherited the cooking talent but she has fully given into the weighty inevitable fate of the Bianchi women with her massive appetite. Doted on by her younger sister's cooking and her fat admirer husband, Benito Molina, Iz/Izzie has absolutely skyrocketed in weight by her third year of marriage being on the cusp of the big 300. Currently, she enjoys being married to an excellent guy, as Benito is a construction worker by trade who loves coming home to a plush wife after a day's hard labor with hard materials. The sisters remain very close as Izabella supports Gina's leadership of the family restaurants and the two are quite candid about their respective love lives and other gossip.

Sharing similar familia traits with Gina, Izabella has a surprisingly thin face with matching arched features but that gives way to her large belly and absolutely ginormous backside, hips and thighs given the Bianchi phenotype for fatty buttocks.
