Lupe is a tall, gray wolf with dark gray fur, except for her tail which is black with a white tip, blue eyes, and a single scar under her left eye. She has small cheek tuffs and her hair is somewhat spiky and mohawk-like, featuring a white streak, and is always bound in a braid. For attire, she wears a blue with a tribal dress and dark lining that ties around the neck with a gold ring, and black sandals. She, like the rest of the characters, wears gloves.

History

Early life

NewLupeFlashback

A young Lupe during an Eggman attack, from Sonic the Hedgehog #277.

At some point in the past, Lupe was caught in the invasion of her village by Dr. Eggman's forces. Thankfully, Sonic the Hedgehog, Sally Acorn and Antoine D'Coolette came to her aid, and their heroism, along with the pain of losing her father, gave her the drive to fight back.[2][3]

Shattered World Crisis

Note: From the readers point of view, this picks up from where Lupe's original history ended.

Later, during the Shattered World Crisis, the Freedom Fighters were surprised to discover that Lupe was one of the many Gaia Key Guardians.[4] In their quest to find the keys, they found Lupe in the Thunder Plains Zone along with the Wolf Pack, who were under attack from E-118 Tau. It was not until the attack was over that the heroes learned the badniks had been going after a decoy Gaia Temple that the Wolf Pack had been guarding.[3]

Later, Lupe watched Sonic and Sally's broadcast, and decided to aid them in keeping the Egg Army at bay while the Freedom Fighters retored the planet.[5]

Trivia

  • Lupe's name is derived from "lupus", the Latin name for wolf ("lupe" is the vocative singular form). It may have come via Italian, in which "lupe" is the feminine plural (i.e. meaning "she-wolves"). It could also have been derive from "Lupine," the scientific term for "wolf."
  • Lupe is the only member of the previous Wolf Pack not to have been created by former writer Ken Penders, and the only one not caught up in his legal disputes with Archie Comics and Sega. As such, only she made the transition into the Post-Super Genesis Wave World.
  • Lupe is the only non-human Gaia Key Guardian.
