%%* ApronMatron

to:

%%* ApronMatron* ApronMatron: She's never seen without an apron, and is explicitly an older lady.



* FatalFlaw: In a nutshell, pride. Impedimenta loves being thought of as someone important, and her desire to be seen as important is usually behind her moments of causing drama.



* HiddenHeartOfGold: She seldom shows it but it does exist.

to:

* HiddenHeartOfGold: She seldom shows it a softer side, but it does exist.exist.
* MeaningfulName: In the English version, her name refers to both her dominance over her husband and her tendency to stir up trouble with her pride, politicking or gossip.
* TheRival: She is constantly fighting a game of one-upsmanship with Mrs. Geriatrix.



* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: Invoked, in that she sometimes asks ''herself'' why she married Vitalstatistix. The uncharitable implication is that she wed him for the status of being the Chieftain's Wife, only for reality to sink in when it turned out Vitalstatistix was only chief of a small, backwater village and not some place big and important. Still, to be fair to Impedimenta, she doesn't complain about it ''that'' often, and there are signs that she does love Vitalstatistix -- she just wishes he was a bit more politically ambitious.



%%* HelloNurse

to:

%%* HelloNurse* HelloNurse: Downplayed, but the sight of her is enough to send Obelix in a bedazzled stupor.



A trendy teenager and Vitalstatistix's nephew.

%%* BlindingBangs

to:

A trendy teenager and Vitalstatistix's nephew.

%%* BlindingBangs
nephew by way of his brother, Doublehelix.

* BlindingBangs: His long forelocks tend to cover his eyes.



* [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove What Is This Thing You Call Fear?]]

to:

* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In ''Asterix and the Vikings'', because Justforkix ends up marrying his daughter, this makes him Justforkix's father-in-law and the brother-in-law of both Doublehelix and Vitalstatistix.
* [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove What Is This Thing You Call Fear?]]Fear?]]: He's never felt fear in his life, nor have any of his followers, so that's why they kidnap Justforkix in the first place.

Added DiffLines:

* BerserkButton: In contrast to his proud recollection of Gergovia (see GloryDays, below), if anyone mentions of the Battle of Alesia (Caesar's final defeat of Vercingetorix and the Gauls) Geriatrix will fly into a rage, shouting that he doesn't know anything about Alesia and nobody even knows where Alesia is. (The latter is also a joke, referring to the fact that the site of Alesia was, until recently, much disputed among historians and archaeologists.)

* BornInTheWrongCentury: An AlternateCharacterInterpretation - In ''Asterix and the Normans'' it's implied he'd be TheRockStar nowadays, but no-one understands his art because it's 50BC. Later books dispense with this idea.

* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Though opinions on him have historically fluctuated, he real Brutus is generally seen as someone who conspired against Caesar wanting to prevent him from completely doing away with republican rule. In "Asterix and Son" he's simply a power-hungry would-be murderer looking to remove potential rivals who threaten his prospects of succeeding Caesar as ruler of Rome.
