BackstoryYears ago in Tokyo, Japan, Alopex used to be an unnamed Japanese girl, who lived in a small village alongside with her big brother, Takeshi. One day when the two siblings were at a playground, they witnessed as a Kraang portal opened in front of them. The Kraang. They performed experiments on the two children with their Mutagen, causing Takeshi to mutate into a mutant Bengal Tiger and his sister to mutate into a mutant red fox. After many months of hardship, they both escaped from The Kraang and went back to Earth. After realizing that they would no longer be accepted by the others due to their mutant forms, they decided to flee from their home to later take refuge at a circus. But after thinking their abilities were much more valuable, Alopex and Tiger Claw both became top-level assassins in the criminal underworld eventually. Overtime, Alopex was starting to form a vendetta for Takeshi as she blamed her brother for her mutation, dragging her into the criminal underworld, and bringing an unnamed fate to their parents. Kama and escaped from him.
Alopex was first alluded to by Tiger Claw in Wormquake! Part One after Karai teases him for lacking a tail. He explains to her that he lost his tail during a duel with a warrior, who he is now hunting for to achieve revenge.
After their last encounter years ago, Alopex went to New York City to hunt down her brother to finally achieve her vengeance on him. After Tiger Claw sensed the presence of his little sister in the city, he decided to go and hunt her down.
While the Ninja Turtles, April O'Neil, and Casey Jones patrolled the city in search for The Foot Clan, they discovered a mysterious speedster running around. She reached to the Chinatown Museum and stole the Cursed Twin Blades of Vengeance before being tracked down by Raphael and Casey, leading to them confronting her. As Alopex fought against the two teenagers, she was able to scratch Casey with one of the blades which caused him to be cursed by it. And before she could strike Raph with the blades as well, she senses Tiger Claw and meets him outside of the museum to fight each other to the death. During the fight between the two siblings was occurring, Bebop and Rocksteady interferes in the fight once Bebop strikes Alopex with his laser mohawk. But shortly afterwards, Alopex is able to escape from the two mutants and swears to come back for Tiger Claw.
After Alopex was searching for her brother senses him in the rooftops, she runs into an alley in the city and is stopped by the Turtles, April, and Casey who want her to hand them the blades. Denying to hand them the blades, she fights off against the teenagers until April lifts her up midair with her telekinetic powers, leading her to finally confess to them about her plan on assassinating her brother, Tiger Claw since he ruined her life ever since they mutated. When Leonardo attempts to reason with her about vengeance not bringing good, Alopex denies to listen and escapes to proceed in her vendetta once she distracts April with a kunai she tossed at her.
Once she reaches Tiger Claw and proceeds to fight with him once more, she is lead to his trap in which she is trapped by a holographic sphere by one of the M.O.U.S.E.R.S. When Takeshi got his hands on the blades and was about to assassinate her own brother, he was stopped by the Turtles and they rescued her. After they insist to her to help them destroy the twin blades, the Turtles, April, and Casey also fight alongside Alopex against Tiger Claw, Bebop, and Rocksteady. During the fight when the blades were destroyed one at a time and Casey no longer was cursed, the mutant red fox took out her kama out to give Takeshi the final blow. But after she shows him mercy due to him being the only family she has left, Alopex starts to walk away from her big brother. Tiger Claw who was not over yet took this as an advantage and attempted to shoot Alopex behind her back with his ice pistol. But out of nowhere he miserably fails to do so and loses his right hand once she slices it off with her kama. While he hollers in pain, she warns him that she could of killed him and finally leaves to be seen running on the rooftops.
