Canadian French - Carole Chatel (Zira in Disney's The Lion King 2 --> [link] )

Italian - (Original) Tina Lattanzi (Ok, I know she isn't alive anymore, but... She's the Queen of Hearts in Disney's Alice in Wonderland --> [link] )
Ada Maria Serra Zanetti (Madame Medusa in Disney's The Rescuers --> [link] )

Name: Ran (means "orchiid" in Japanese. The orchid is symbol of rare beauty, love, refinement. It is also symbol for fertility, mature charm and long life)
Nickname: "Kokitsune" ("Little Fox". Her nickname of when she was in the Yakuza, after her habit to wear a fox mask like this --> [link] when in action. This to hide her true face and avoid being recognized. She calls herself like this even if she's not more in the Yakuza because she's used to it more than her true name.)
Age: 31 Years Old (Sly 2)
Surname: Seirei ("Holy Spirit". This is her true surname, legally changed in "Krueger" when she came to live in Germany)
Species: Lion, with a bit of Lynx (Father was a Barbary Lion, and her mother half Lynx/Lion)
Nationality: Japanese

Family: Akame (Brother)
Dimitri (Husband)
Don Octavio (Grand-Father, Mother's side)
Ludwig (First Son)
Faust (Second Son)
Marilyn (Daughter, third born)

Weapon(s): Kusarigama ([link])/ Her own voice / Kicks.
Background (In short): She had a past in the Japanese mafia, where she was the co-founder of a famous gang. A rival gang founded her family and killed them (except for Akame, who managed to protect himself, and Octavio, being in Italy and all). She founded her rivals and brutally killed them, but they were waiting for her, and framed her, calling the police who arrested her. She was 20 years old, and she came out of prison at 30 years old.

(Sly 2 Events) After that, she wanted to leave behind her back her past. She came to live in Dusseldorf, Germany, changed her surname and corrupted some high people of the Interpol to promote her as General (she wanted to be protected). One year later, she joined the Klaww Gang as the spy who sidetracked the Interpol from their investigation about her Gang and passed to this last ones informations. She had a sweetspot for Neyla, as she used to call her "Indian Jewel of mine".
Her Clockwerk parts were the lungs, she wanted them inside her to satisfy her chain-smoker desires (She, infact, smokes two cigars at once). Sly deceives her as his new "future husband" while Murray and Bentley steal her Clockwerk parts.

What they didn't know is that... When she was little, she had a little accident with the Little Chemistry Kit... So she got angry and transformed herself into a big dragon (Hulk style, you know). After a long chase, Sly climbs on the Rhine Tower, and so does the dragon in anger. Sly manages to escape her before the tower gets broken and fells, under Ran's weight.

In the same time, the lioness returned to her normal look, as Carmelita already arrived with the local Police. The fox declares under arrest Ran, who angrily follows her in jail.

(Sly 3 Events) After that she (successfully) manages to use her many money to corrupt the Police to relase her, she goes to the Airport, ready to return in Japan. Sly and the gang find her right in time, and with a bit of craftiness, Bentley convinces her to come to help them for the Cooper Vault mission ("Oh, that's a pity, Ms. Krueger. I know a man who would LOVE you"). She was the "distraction".

(Sly 4 Events) We'll see. >:3
She has a big belly here. Because she and Dimitri get married and Ludwig was "created" in-between Sly 3 and 4. >: D

------------------ Many hours after TD;RL -----------------

Why yes, she has a tail. A long tail. The short Lynx tail was because she had a cutted tail. She used her dragon powers (as, like lizards, they can regrow some parts of the body when cutted) to make it grow out again. After so many years, her dragon powers are almost disappeared.

And yes, she still has her red suit, she just likes to change dress lol.

Very nice pic, man--the face, in particular, is very much lioness-esque. And the detailed backstory is a definite plus.
