Bogdana Petrova Buneva is a character from Defenders of Earth. She is a Bulgarian criminal who is a member of the Bulgarian Vixens, the Bulgarian branch of the Eastern Vixens.


Buneva's name is probably the best name for her because of her appearance: She appears as a twenty two year old Bulgarian woman whose hair is never seen out of a bun, especially when the Vixens are together regardless of whether it is the Bulgarians or the Russians.

In fact, Bogdana's hair being tied in a bun is her trademark, and she is rarely seen without it. Her hair is brown and she has fair skin with green eyes. Her eyes are also described as being far more natural than the likes of Kalina Toncheva who has grey eyes.

Bogdana's hair is also tied in such a tight bun, it is said that one would think she would be getting a headache. Like the other Vixens, she typically wears a black leather bodysuit with jet black boots and a utility belt across her waist.


From her first appearance, Bogdana is regarded as highly arrogant and a lover of beauty thanks to her loot consisting of very valuable and beautiful jewels including but not limited to rubies, sapphires and emeralds. But she is also impatient and prone to boredom as shown when the Vixens are forced undercover.

She also shares the typical greed and sense of adventure shown by the other Vixens when the Vixens are told about a hoard of gold in the Bulgarian mountains and in her own robbery as she tells her leader Stanislava Blagoeva that she would swear that she would have gone to England and stolen the Crown Jewels.

More of Bogdana's personality is shown in King of the East where she is regarded as being a good hairdresser, having already done not only her own hair but also altered some of the hair of other Vixens notably Mira Adamova. Another unseen personality trait of Bogdana is that she has a short temper and once she is done with sorting hair out for the Vixens instantly throws them out; Bogdana also is shown to be under stress at this point.

Defenders of Earth

Stranger of the Past:

Alongside various other Vixens particularly Stanislava Blagoeva, Kalina Toncheva, Tsvetanka Zhelyaskova, Borislava Ilseva and others, Bogdana is among one of the many Vixens who is given a decent role in Stranger of the Past and returns in other stories albeit intermittently; an original draft would have shown all of the Vixens showing their loot to Stanislava Blagoeva but this was scrapped due to the combination of a struggle with designs and the fact that many of the Vixens could return in King of the East.

In the story, Bogdana is the second Vixen who shows her loot to her leader which consists of an entire assortment of jewels and alongside the other Vixens watches as the others reveal their own loot; Buneva may also have the best composure among the women but once the Vixens are told of a hoard of gold in the mountains that are guarded by a dragon known as Firroth, she is among one of the many Vixens (except Miroslava Blagoeva) to lose their composure and go crazy about wanting to become even richer.

Once Miroslava puts herself forward, Bogdana and the other Vixens head up to the mountains to witness the theft from Firroth.

King of the East:

At the Falcon Sanctum where the Vixens are forced in disgrace to avoid capture from authorities, Bogdana is the first to express her disgust at being forced underground when she asks Stanislava what they are going to do and they can't just give up and to be forced underground forever but is assured that the Vixens won't be forced underground and after Stanislava has called another Vixen leader, the Vixen is made to go into the dining room to listen to the radio.

In the dining room, Bogdana is among those to be selected by Stanislava to be in her group alongside Bogomila is first shown at the Falcon Sanctum with the other Vixens who are complaining about being forced undercover however, hopes come up when Stanislava phones another Vixen leader Yevgenia Agrafena who tells Stanislava to tell the other Vixens to go into the dining room where all will be revealed.

Like the other Vixens, Gavrilova is shown sitting in the same chair that she sat in three months ago when the Vixens stole thousands of money, gold and jewels where she listens to Yevgenia and when she asks Stanislava to choose her own group, Bogomila is one of those Vixens chosen by Stanislava alongside Alexandra Zhivkova, Borislava Ilseva, Grozdana Ruseva, Tanya Nakova, Miroslava Blagoeva, Tsvetanka Zhelyaskova, Kalina Toncheva, Bilyana Zhelyaskova, Bogomila Gavrilova and Stanimira Zhelyaskova.

At the end of the briefing, Bogdana is sent away to change her clothes and pack her bags ready to leave Bulgaria with the other Vixens, one way or another. The following hour, Bogdana joins the other Vixens who have changed their clothes, packed their bags and are now heading out of Bulgaria; hours later, Bogdana and her group arrive in Russia where they are taken to a building that houses the other branches of the Eastern Vixens.

Along with her allies, Bogdana is one of many Vixens shown cheering and celebrating when the Vixens declare a war of nerves against PHANTOM, their most common ally (The Lionesses of Turkey are also an enemy of the Vixens but they are more common for the Bulgarians.
