Bailey Dennings (b. 13 June, 1997) was a German female Fobble and an accountant and former student of architecture who became an assistant to Anthony Ruth, Daniel Murrell, and Carol Wilcox when they followed similar careers. While working with the designers, Dennings came into contact with the Police Grand Army when Baby Intelligence converged, only to be tailed by deadly forces. Dennings and Wilcox became focused on understanding the Dam of Demolitions and when Baby Intelligence returned, Dennings assisted him in his war against the NoHeads.
Early life Edit
Second NoHead War Edit
- "Trust me, a man's character is not determined by success, not by their number of fangirls, it can only happen when your back's against a wall! And for me, that time is now! Baby Intelligence here, he spent exactly three hundred twenty-six seconds feeling sorry for himself, but still, he moved forward. We started moving forward. We can all relate, because the worst thing about failure is believing you are not worth what you thought you'd come to acknowledge. Failure has molded us! Has molded us all! And that is my path to a successful business in the construction of buildings, and our path to a new era! There are many times, he, well, understandably, thought it was the end, but did Baby Intelligence give up? We may decide to throw down our arms, but the twist in the story is, we won't! He and Lindsay failed to save that poor girl, and for three hundred twenty-six seconds I thought it was the end. You want killing to end, you have to do a little more of it, and now! I ask you. I ask you all. Will you stay pinned under the Lord of the North's undeserving, zit-ridden arms, or will you make the NoHeads see the stars? We can submit or we can raise our horn, and right now, I'm living the horn life!! No pun intended. Shall we do it? SHALL WE CHALLENGE THEIR AUTHORITY?! ARE WE READY???!!!'"

To the United States Edit
Dennings went to work with Anthony Ruth as an intern for college credits. Shortly after being employed, she met a woman named Carol Wilcox, whom she took to meet her boss so she could recommend her. Following a successful venture to the Dancing Dorm, Wilcox was employed.
Two weeks later, the group traveled to the United States of America, where Dennings suspected that Willie the Banker was in league with the Dark Lord, Mr. Stupid NoHead. She went with Wilcox to watch a Crodela game between the Galloping Grenades and the Holy Mackerels, which marked the first time she saw Baby Intelligence in action. It is likely she knew, by this point, that the latter knew and liked Wilcox. After the Grenades won the game and Baby Intelligence got knocked out by a Golgoball, Dennings held ice against his cheek while he was lying on a cot unconscious. When he woke, Dennings introduced herself and relayed the bad news that the Mackerels had lost their first official game.
Battle of the Eastern Field Edit
After the devastation caused by the Battle of the Western Field, Baby Intelligence tried giving a speech of encouragement to the disheveled Grand Army alongside Wilcox, and at the latter's insistence, Dennings as well. He expressed his honor, more like intimidation, at being thrust back into the spotlight of the Grand Army, but then lost his train of thought, but Dennings suddenly yanked the microphone out of his hands and told them it was time for them to build character individually through proving themselves in battle, reminded them of what Baby Intelligence had sacrificed and endured to bring about their chance to topple the NoHeads while they were vulnerable, provoked them by mentioning the murder of Indiana Shaffer, and told them that they had all been molded by their failures, as she had. She told them to raise their flag and demanded to know if they were ready to fight. The audience chamber erupted with cheering and applause to her speech. Dennings felt ready to pass out, but Wilcox told her she "could have made a Deaforma a plumber that day", something all the officers roared their agreement with.
During the Battle of the Eastern Field that Dennings inadvertently helped to initiate, she and Murrell fought alongside the others, but they were separated and were nearly killed by a platoon of Bratpros. Fortunately, a stray projectile landed in their exact location and blew up the Bratpro shields, inadvertently saving the pair and allowing Murrell to kick the robots to the ground, breaking them and earning him a compliment from Dennings.
After the battle, Dennings returned with her friends, where she bade goodbye to Baby Intelligence before he returned to the MBH.
After the Second NoHead War, Dennings grew closer to her boyfriend Daniel Murrell. The two eventually married and went on to have a child together, Jonathan Murrell. Bailey traveled with her husband and son to the 2nd S.M.S.B. Skyfighter Tournament in 2030. During the match, commentator Melissa Vance mentioned rumors that Bailey had "grown restless" in her marriage to Daniel, and thus chosen to distance herself from him during the game. Her fellow commentator, Summer Petersen, quickly refuted these rumors, explaining that Bailey had simply chosen to sit with her friends.
Physical description Edit
Bailey Dennings had blonde hair and brown eyes.
Personality and traits Edit
Bailey was shown to be very impulsive. She is fairly intelligent and, despite not seeming to be as bright as her friends, Bailey is the first to notice that Baby Intelligence lives in New York City and so the MBH is there. She also pointed out that, despite the fact that Baby Intelligence may be unpopular with the community, he has done more for the world than anyone who was shunning him. Bailey Dennings is outspoken and sarcastic, as when she told Carol that when the NoHeads' control station exploded, it "was pretty lit" and claimed she would never make another joke again.
Bailey Dennings is very helpful to her friends, but she has limits.
Her love interest is Daniel Murrell.
Talents and abilities Edit
Through her work with Anthony Ruth and Carol Wilcox, Dennings acquired some degree of accounting knowledge; Dennings' background is better suited in architecture. However, Dennings is skilled in accessing financial information and noticing inconsistencies that even Ruth and Wilcox tended to overlook.
Daniel Murrell Edit
Bailey was close to Daniel Murrell, her boyfriend and a fellow worker under Anthony Ruth. Following the end of the Second NoHead War, Bailey and Daniel grew closer, and eventually married and had a son together. Both of them have snarky senses of humor.
Jonathan Murrell Edit
After the Second NoHead War, Bailey married Daniel Murrell and together they had a son, Jonathan. Bailey evidently had a good relationship with her son, and was known to joke in front of him.
Carol Wilcox Edit
One of Bailey's closest friends was Carol Wilcox. The two agreed on pretty much everything and constantly operated together, such as when they obsessively studied the Dam of Demolitions. It is clear that Bailey appreciates Carol's loyalty to her boss, whereas Carol is grateful for Bailey bringing about her reemployment. Bailey also tried to get Carol to relax, joking with her on several occasions and getting a stark variety of reactions to her sense of humor from Carol.
Anthony Ruth Edit
It is unknown how long Bailey has been working for Professor Anthony Ruth, but she seemed to have established a good relationship with her boss.
Baby Intelligence Edit
As two close friends of Carol's, Bailey respected Baby Intelligence's tendency not to exactly stay out of life-threatening trouble. She was usually happy to help him out, like she did by "taking care of" the Dam of Demolitions. He acts friendly toward her, and she gives him the same respect, but the two had little contact.
Behind the scenes Edit
D. Isaac Thomas said that Bailey Dennings' speech was obviously her defining moment in the series. Her moment was heavily improvised between Thomas and his little brother, Ammon Thomas. Thomas fondly remembered listening to metal with his heart pounding while writing that scene.
Mythological allegory Edit
Bailey Dennings is similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe character Darcy Lewis. Both were ambitious young women in pursuit of extensive college educations (Dennings is determined to find a worthy job as an architect whereas Lewis intends to become a scientist) and this led them to work consistently with a major character (Carol Wilcox for Bailey and Jane Foster for Darcy). Like Dennings, Lewis respected the main character but never truly had a relationship with him. Both of them are very sarcastic and helpful and they both have a boyfriend who is a minor character (Murrell and Boothby). But the difference is that Lewis unlike Dennings is incredibly impulsive and was very nerdy whereas Dennings was much more logical and simply had no interest in academics irrelevant to her college courses.
It is also possible this is not coincidental as Bailey shares the surname of the actress who portrayed Darcy in the MCU, Kat Dennings.
