|“||My name is Alopex, turtle boy.||”|
Alopex is an ally of the Ninja Turtles. She was once a girl who live in Tokyo, Japan with her brother, Takeshi. But when the two siblings entered a Kraang Portal and were experimented on by The Kraang, she became a mutant red fox and her brother became a mutant Bengal tiger. Due to their new forms not being accepted by society, they fled from their home and eventually joined the circus as performer, which followed into them becoming top-level assassins of the criminal underworld. Takeshi was once attacked by his own sister in a failed murder attempt, as she claims that he ruined her life. This lead to him getting his tail chopped off (which she now wears as a belt) and she was thought to be dead, until she reappeared and proceeded with her vendetta, by stealing the Cursed Twin Blades of Vengeance (which she intended to use against her own brother). But when this plan backfired, she chopped off her brother's right hand after he attempted to shoot her with his ice pistol. She wields a pair of Kama and the Cursed Twin Blades of Vengeance (temporarily) as her signature weapons of choice. She has a rivalry with Tiger Claw (brotherly). Alopex debuts in Tale of Tiger Claw.
BackstoryDecades 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 own biological parents. Kama and soon afterwards, she fled to hideout from Takeshi. New York City, still vowing vengeance on her own brother. Currently, Alopex wears Tiger Claw's tail as a belt around her as a form of a memento, so that she can remind her mutant brother what he has put her through all these years.
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 currently hunting down for in order to achieve his revenge.

Fearing that she was back to exact her vengeance on him, he takes Bebop and Rocksteady as backup to hunt down Alopex.
