"Face it, girls, you're smurfing at the epitome of beauty."
Paprika is a Smurf character who is solely part of Vic George's series of EMPATH: The Luckiest Smurf fanfiction stories. According to the story series, she is the mother of Hefty, Handy, Grouchy, and Sassette, and the wife of Muscles Smurf. Paprika considers herself the most beautiful Smurfette in the village, with Muscles being the most handsome and strongest Smurf she has ever met. She had a bit of a tomboyish streak in her as a young Smurfling, which was passed onto her daughter Sassette.
About 50 years later, she along with her husband succumbed to the same unknown disease that claimed the lives of all their fellow Smurfs except for Papa Smurf. Hefty, Handy, and Grouchy were then left in the care of Papa Smurf along with 94 other young Smurfs their age.
Years later, during the events in the story "Days Of Auld Lang Smurf", Paprika supposedly came back from the dead to meet her grown-up sons and a Sassette who still remained around 50 years of age. However, Smurfette, Polaris Psyche, and the Smurflings discover and reveal the truth that the "resurrected" Paprika was just an illusion created by the Auld Lang Syne Spell that the evil witch, Chlorhydris, had cast upon the Smurfs.
