He owned, Magpie Electricals, a business which sold cheap TV sets to many Londoners, claiming that it was his "patriotic duty" to allow as many as possible to see Queen Elizabeth II's coronation. In reality, Magpie was dominated by the alien criminal the Wire, who fed off the energy of Humans, leaving them without faces.

History

Growing up, Margaret Pye loved shiny things and wanted them all for herself. She was ridiculed for her obssession, and nicknamed Magpie. This obsession just got stronger as she grew up, and she took a job as curator of the Gotham City Museum of Antiquities to be surrounded by the valuables she loved. This love became compulsive jealousy when she realized she would never possess the antiques around her. Her mind snapped, and she started a crime-wave as Magpie. She made booby-trapped duplicates of famous museum pieces, and put them in place of the genuine articles. She felt she was taking what was rightfully hers, not stealing. She also recruited a small gang of thugs to ensure that she was never caught. She was a harsh employer, killing any goon that failed her expectations. She was unfortunate enough to be the first criminal captured by the team of Batman and Superman working together. She had an emotional breakdown after she realized that they were going to take away her shiny things.

Although recently seen working with Intergang, as of One Year Later she was found dead, murdered by the Tally Man under the orders of Great White Shark, who was chipping away at the Penguin's empire.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

This article is about the Summoning familiar. For the impling in Impetuous Impulses, see Magpie impling.

The Magpie is a Summoning familiar. To summon a Magpie requires level 47 Summoning and a Magpie pouch, granting 0.9 Summoning experience.

Contents

Magpie Pouch

A Magpie Pouch is created by using a pouch on a summoning obelisk, with a Green Charm, 88 spirit shards, and 1 Gold Ring in the inventory, gaining 83.2 Summoning experience. If you exchange these pouches with Bogrog you will get 62 Spirit Shards.

Thieving fingers scroll

The Thieving Fingers Scroll temporarily increases your level in Thieving by 2, and is activated by using a Thieving Fingers scroll.

Foraging

Magpies are foragers attracted to shiny and precious objects and will gather any they see while travelling.

The items it forages can range from Sapphire to Diamond jewellery, uncut gems, rings, and enchanted rings. Magpies can find and store up to 30 pieces of jewellery before emptying is needed.

Magpies are excellent familiars for use where no familiar is otherwise neccessary. The items collected make nice profit, also with bought pouches. 

Dialogue

Translations

  • There's nowt gannin on here... (There's nothing going on here...)
  • Howway, let's gaan see what's happenin' in toon. (Come on, let's go and see what's happening in town.)
  • Are we gaan oot soon? I'm up fer a good walk me. (Are we going out soon? I'm up for a good walk.)
  • Ye' been plowdin' i' the claarts aall day. (You've been walking around in the mud all day.)

Trivia

  • The Magpie's dialogue is a reference to the Geordie dialect, which is very thick and difficult for some people to understand. The connection between the Magpie and the accent is that Newcastle United (the area where the Geordie accent is prevalent) are nicknamed the "Magpies" due to the traditional black and white colour of their Kit.
  • The player character's response "that was just noise" references the BBC comedy series I'm Alan Partridge. In a conversation with his hotel's (Geordie) handyman Michael, Alan responds "I'm sorry, that was just a noise. All I got there was broken homes. And a broken home is not an excuse for evil."
