9 (2005 short) (cameo)
2005 short film Edit
The soul of 7 can be seen coming out from the talisman and returning back to her numbered skin after 9 combined the Cat Beast's and his own talisman together.
7 seems to be made from a very finely lined fabric, and not from burlap like many of the other stitchpunks. It may be vinyl or corduroy. Whatever color she had upon being created has been bleached from her skin from long amounts of exposure to the sun, due to her exploring. She wears a bird skull as a helmet, and the ear or quadrate bones of the animal hang down like earrings. She also wears a small shield on her right arm, and her spear is made from a black clockhand and a small knife. Aside from the aforementioned bone-earrings, she does not have hair or any feature to distinguish her as being female appearance-wise. However, she seems to be taller and thinner than the other stitchpunks, giving her an athletic appearance.
She is very hot-tempered, rebellious, independent and defiant, similar to a teenager. However, she is calm and confident in battle. She is frustrated with the others for not being willing to go out and fend for themselves like she has, and she especially hates 1. She is also very protective of 3 & 4 and treats them like her children. At the beginning of the film, she had more of a hardened nature; but at 9's arrival, she began to develop a more sensitive side.
"9" Facebook pageEdit
According to the Scientist's Facebook page, 7 was made and awakened on Monday, August 31 at 5:41 p.m. She was made to act as a mediator to the others, due to their conflicting personalities, such as 1's skeptical lack of trust and 5's willingness to trust anybody.
Fiction RoleEditShe is first seen, unnamed, in 1's explanation of the war. Later, her shadow is seen, finding the map 9 and 5 lost on their way to save 2.
Then, she appears at the fight with the Cat Beast, leaping down and beheaded the beast, killing it. 2 and 5 are overjoyed that she came back, and 9 gives her a look of admiration.
Right after 2's death, she is seen reprimanding 9 for being so thoughtless.
She helps fight the Winged Beast and plans to kill it fast by sneaking behind it and beheading it with her spear, but the beast had great reflexes and punched 7 next to the wall. 7 tried again by heading towards the Winged Beast, head on, but like the first time, bad luck. Her left leg was impaled by the beast's harpoon-tipped tail. Wanting to finish a quarter the job, the beast pulled 7 near it. 9 caught 7 and used her spear to halt the pulling. 9 told 8 to cut the cable. 8 cut the cable and it whipped around the plane's propeller. With the plane edging, 7 hanged on to her spear, 9 held onto her impaled leg, and 1 held on to 9 grasping his staff. 5 and 6 speed up the propeller by pointing the wires to the other wires, causing the Winged Beast to be urged closer to the propellers, but its multi-knived beak grabbed 1's cape. 9 pleaded 1 to let it go, and he did. The beast was crushed by the propellers.
She almost kills 1 out of anger and shock when he shamelessly reveals that he pragmatically sent 2 out to die so that the elder would not slow everyone else down.
In the Seamstress battle, she chops off 2 from its tail, and bravely leaps up to fight it. But then it grabs her, and is about to use its scissors on her when 5 shoots his hand-made crossbow into the seamstress's eye, cracking it. The Seamstress decides to leave at that moment, taking 7 and 8 with it.
9 rescues her, and the Seamstress is destroyed, getting crushed between two gears. After the Fabrication Machine is seemingly destroyed, she thanks 9 for saving her and destroying the machine. Then, they both managed to escape the factory before it explodes. The two watch 5, 6, 3 and 4 goof around while the record plays. 5 went to fetch the record, but he saw an omnious shadow lurking towards him. The machine was still alive! 7 hid 3 and 4's heads behind not to see 5's soul getting absorbed.
Later, on the bridge, she stops to get 6 safely to the end of the bridge, but she fails. She begins to doubt 9's sanity when he takes the stitchpunk's memorable last words seriously. When 9 leaves to find the place where he awakened, 7 tried to stop him, but 1 told her to let him go.
She later becomes persistant to convince 9 not to sacrifice himself in order to give them a chance to grab the talisman but 9 manages to convince her to let him do it.
Later, she, 9 and the twins build a memorial for the deceased, and they watch as the souls spiral up into the sky.
- "I found others." During the previous war
- "I never left. You finally decided to join the fight." 7 upon 5's remark about her coming back.
- "They've been hiding here, lost in the past... looking for answers." 7 explaining about 3&4.
- "We need your help. We... awakened something."
- "What? Go back to 1? So he can lock us away while this nightmare awakens? Never." After 9 decides to consult 6 about the talisman pattern.
- "Let me try that again." After she fails to kill the Winged Beast.
- "You wanna live? FIGHT!"
- "They're free now." When the souls rise into the sky.
- "What happens next?" After the souls rise into the sky.
Relationships with Other CharactersEdit
- 9 - 7 develops a softer personality after she first meets 9. She is often annoyed with his carelessness and the trouble he gets the stitchpunks into, but eventually starts to care for him (possibly having a romantic attachment to him) and even tries to convince him not to sacrifice himself.
- 8 - 7 is annoyed by 8 because he is very loyal to 1.
- 6 - 7 is very confused by 6, and tries her best to ignore him; but she will defend him, and she is also depressed when he dies.
- 5 - 5 and 7 are very good friends; 5 sewed 7's impaled leg that she received during the Winged Beast fight.
- 3 & 4 - 7 is very protective and caring towards the twins, and acts somewhat like their mother or older sister.
- 2 - It is assumed that 7 and 2 are good friends because 2 was excited about 7's return after she killed the Cat Beast. Also that 7 tries to kill 1 after finding out he selfishly sended 2 out to his death.
- 1 - 7 loathes 1; she left him and his fearful nature to go and fight the machines.
- In the Russian adaptation, 7 represents The Scientist's wife.
- It's possible that both 9 and 7 have romantic affections/feelings with each other ever since 9 met her but because of the Fabrication Machine and its creations, they were unable to show it until the end of the film, which they can both be seen holding hands while 3&4 marveled over the rain caused by the souls that went into the sky.
- Her battle helmet is consisted of a dead bird's skull, some little teeth bones, and two bird feathers attached to the back of the helmet. It remained on 7's head until the explosion caused by the Fabrication Machine near the end of the film, which flew off and she never picked up.
- It is breifly seen that 7 has a patch on her back covering up most of her number, and it is explained in the commentary that she received it in a fight with the Cat Beast.
- Some assume 7 to be ambidextrous, as she frequently uses both her right hand and her left hand while fighting/handling things with no visible difficulties. Whether this was an animation error, or was purposeful is unknown.
