She has long blonde hair styled in a french braid and blue eyes conforming to the Japanese stereotype of Western foreigners, along with a broader nose and face than the Japanese shipgirls in the game. Her outfit consists of a long sleeved corseted white off-shoulder dress with a red ribbon placed at the front; said ribbon having a red rose in the middle. On her head she wears a black hairband with a mini crown on the side. Her legwear is comprised of white thighhighs held up by garter straps and high heeled black mary janes. Despite being a Queen Elizabeth-class, her jewerly is moderate and only consists of a couple silver necklaces. The machinery behind her is in the shape of a throne on which she sits on. She carries a globus cruciger in her left hand and a scepter-like mast in her right hand.
She is often considered the first foreign shipgirl to actually be able to speak her native language properly by fans, unlike those before her (the German and Italian shipgirls, Iowa, Kongou and Verniy to an extent) that have been notorious for their ranguage. She even goes so far as to speak her English lines in a native-sounding, vaguely British accent (largely thanks to her voice actress being born in Australia). Although Warspite speaks with a Western-sounding accent, actual sentences, such as "Sally go!" demonstrate grammar a native speaker would not use.
Warspite behaves in (the Japanese impression of) the manner of a sedate, high-class British lady. Due to the connection of the English language, several of her lines reference Iowa and Kongou, and she is often depicted in fanart alongside one or both of the two. Due to her war history, she has a connection to several other ships, as well. She also has hourly lines regarding a grudge against the German ships, talking about her shared history with Italian ships Littorio and Roma at the hands of the Luftwaffe, while Zara and Pola fear her.
The historic HMS Warspite was the Royal Navy's most decorated battleship.
She served in World War I in the critical Battle of Jutland, where she took damage from about 150 rounds, including damage to her port engine room that caused her steering to jam. This damage to her steering system was never fully repaired, and plagued the ship for the rest of her service history.
Beyond this, there was also an event where HMS Warspite was attacked by a German U-boat, and because none of her escorts were close to effectively screen her, her captain chose to attempt to ram the submarine, instead. She also was involved in three different collisions between World War I and the start of World War II, although only a collision with the HMS Valiant inflicted significant enough damage to Warspite to warrant major repairs. Between the wars, she also suffered a major boiler room fire, a mutiny, and underwent major remodeling. (This technically changed her from a Battlecruiser to officially being considered a Battleship.)
During World War II, HMS Warspite served in the Mediterranean, Atlantic, and Indian Ocean theaters of war. In the Atlantic, during the Second Battle of Narvik Fairey Swordfish from Warspite sank the U-boat U-64, marking the first aircraft kill of a U-boat in the war, as well as sank one and damaged two other German destroyers. In 1940 and 42, she served in the Mediterranean, and participated in the battles of Calabria, where she managed to land one of the longest-range hits at a moving target in naval history, upon Italian battleship Giulio Cesare; the Battle of Taranto by providing air support; the Battle of Cape Matapan, where she sank the Italian cruisers Zara and Pola; and inadvertently in The Battle of Crete, where she was struck by several Luftwaffe bombs, and forced to leave the theater for repair by traveling through the Suez Canal, and then eastward to the west coast of the United States. Then serving 1942 in the Indian Ocean, she participated in the Indian Ocean Raid although she failed to make contact with the IJN, and later participated in covering several landings in Southeast Asia. In 1943, she returned to the Mediterranean to assist in the Invasions of Sicily and Italy. After the Italian surrender, Warspite attempted to escort the Littorio and Roma out of Italy, but Warspite and Littorio were seriously damaged, and Roma was sunk by Luftwaffe attacks using the Fritz-X guided missile. She served the last years of the war in the Atlantic, where she provided covering fire for the Normandy landings, and bombarded German coastal positions thereafter.
After this long career, she was turned over for scrapping after the end of World War II.
