==History==
 
==History==
Alopex was born an ordinary arctic fox outside of Fairbanks, [[Alaska]]. She proved herself deadly from an early age, serving as her pack's main hunter. She was both feared and respected by all other creatures in the area, save for a polar bear (who was the only being Alopex feared). This life continued until she was captured by a group of scientists attempting an experiment to bring other animals to human-level intelligence. In Alopex's case, the experiment was a success, first granting her human intelligence and then a human-like body. She was rescued from the laboratory by the [[Foot Clan (IDW)|Foot Clan]]'s leader [[Shredder (IDW)|The Shredder]] and became an agent of the Foot Clan, believing it gave her life a purpose again.

She was rescued from the laboratory by the {{idwlink|Foot Clan}}'s leader the {{idwlink|Shredder}} and became an agent of the Foot Clan, believing it gave her life a purpose again.
   
In her first appearance, she attempted to trick the [[Turtles]] into showing her where their lair was so that the Foot Clan could find them and kill them. Fortunately, Raphael caught onto her scheme and fought her. She managed to get away though. After that, she can continually be seen fighting the Turtles at the Shredder's side.

In her first appearance, she attempted to trick {{idwlink|Raphael}} into showing her where their [[First lair (IDW)|lair]] was so that the Foot Clan could find them and kill them. Fortunately, Raphael caught onto her scheme and fought her. She escaped the fight, and later clashed with the Turtles several times from the Shredder's side.
   
Although Alopex served the Foot Clan faithfully, she still had some attachment to her old home and family. Seemingly aware of this, Shredder sent her back to Fairbanks while he had the forest burned down as a test of loyalty. Alopex attacked Shredder, although she quickly surrendered and professed her ultimate loyalty to the Foot Clan. However, comparing Shredder to the bear that had been the bane of her existence in her earlier life, she secretly swore that she would one day kill him.

During a fight between Shredder and [[Splinter (IDW)|Master Splinter]], Alopex finally attacked her master. She did not succeed in killing him, however, and was stopped by Shredder's granddaughter [[Karai (IDW)|Karai]] (who up to that point had considered Alopex an ally and friend).

During a fight between the Shredder and {{idwlink|Splinter}}, Alopex finally attacked her master. She did not succeed in killing him, however, and was shot in the arm by the Shredder's granddaughter {{idwlink|Oroku Karai}}, who up to that point had considered Alopex an ally and friend.
   
Although injured, Alopex managed to survive and escape. She followed the Turtles, accompanied by [[April O'Neil (IDW)|April O'Neil]] and [[Casey Jones (IDW)|Casey Jones]], to the home of April's parents, as they believed they were no longer safe in New York after the Foot had taken over the city's criminal underworld. [[Raphael (IDW)|Raphael]] was the first to notice her and attacked her, believing her to still be allied with the Foot. Raphael's brothers managed to stop the fight. After Alopex explained her situation, Splinter offered a truce with her. Alopex declined saying she did not need his or his sons' help, but she remained close to their new home. Alopex would later change her mind and joined the Turtles as a resident of the O'Neils. She even became friendly with Raphael, but this quickly changed when a group of Foot Assassins attacked the Turtles. Believing Alopex to still be loyal to the Foot Clan, Raphael attacked her. However, after she saved Raphael from being attacked by one of the Foot Assassins, he realized she was telling the truth.

Some TMNT stuff really isn't for little kids.

In the IDW continuity, Alopex is a female mutant arctic fox first appearing in the Micro-Series issue for Raphael. Originally mutated to serve the Shredder, she eventually rebelled and became an ally of the Turtles.

Alopex was written by Brian Lynch and designed by Kevin Eastman. Alopex is the first new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles character designed by Kevin Eastman in over 15 years.

Since issue #101, Alopex is sometimes also known by her nickname Al.

HistoryEdit

Alopex was born an ordinary arctic fox outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. She proved herself deadly from an early age, serving as her pack's main hunter. She was both feared and respected by all other creatures in the area, save for a polar bear (who was the only being Alopex feared). This life continued until she was captured by a group of scientists attempting an experiment to bring other animals to human-level intelligence. In Alopex's case, the experiment was a success, first granting her human intelligence and then a human-like body. She was rescued from the laboratory by the Foot Clan's leader the Shredder and became an agent of the Foot Clan, believing it gave her life a purpose again.

In her first appearance, she attempted to trick Raphael into showing her where their lair was so that the Foot Clan could find them and kill them. Fortunately, Raphael caught onto her scheme and fought her. She escaped the fight, and later clashed with the Turtles several times from the Shredder's side.

Although Alopex served the Foot Clan faithfully, she still had some attachment to her old home and family. Seemingly aware of this, the Shredder sent her back to Fairbanks while he had the forest burned down as a test of loyalty. Alopex attacked the Shredder, although she quickly surrendered and professed her ultimate loyalty to the Foot Clan. However, comparing the Shredder to the bear that had been the bane of her existence in her earlier life, she secretly swore that she would one day kill him.

During a fight between the Shredder and Splinter, Alopex finally attacked her master. She did not succeed in killing him, however, and was shot in the arm by the Shredder's granddaughter Oroku Karai, who up to that point had considered Alopex an ally and friend.

Although injured, Alopex managed to survive and escape. She followed the Turtles, accompanied by April O'Neil and Casey Jones, to the home of April's parents, as they believed they were no longer safe in New York after the Foot had taken over the city's criminal underworld. Raphael was the first to notice her and attacked her, believing her to still be allied with the Foot. Leonardo intervened, and a fight broke out between the brothers. After Alopex explained her situation, Splinter offered a truce with her. Alopex declined saying she did not need his or his sons' help, but she remained close to their new home. Alopex would later change her mind and joined the Turtles as a resident of the O'Neil Farm. She even became friendly with Raphael, but this quickly changed when a group of Foot Assassins attacked the Turtles. Believing Alopex to still be loyal to the Foot Clan, Raphael attacked her. However, after she saved Raphael from being attacked by one of the Foot Assassins, he realized she was telling the truth.

Returning to New York thanks to a subliminal suggestion from Kitsune, she observed Angel Bridge, a.k.a. Nobody, from a distance, until she enlisted her help in fighting Bebop and Rocksteady, who were getting into a fight with the Turtles and the Mutanimals. After Bebop and Rocksteady were defeated, Old Hob offered her a place in his army, but she refused, instead teaming up with Nobody to help keep the streets clean of crime.

After Splinter became the leader of the Foot Clan, Alopex helped Leonardo train the new recruits in various martial arts. At the same time, she was helping Nobody and Harold investigate the Street Phantoms. However, Alopex was unaware that Kitsune had been manipulating her mind for a long while, and was forced to fight for the witch without being aware of what she was doing. In the aftermath of Kitsune's attempted assassination of Splinter, Alopex panicked and fled New York City, going straight back to Alaska where she originally came from.

Kitsune's presence followed her, tormenting her, saying that she can never escape her rule. But Raphael and Nobody arrived to help their mutual friend, to the point of Raphael actually establishing a psychic link with her just as Kitsune was about to break her spirit completely. Raphael helped the mutant fox regain her mental strength by reminding her that she's "a mutant ninja fox from New York City" and that she "kicks serious ass."

Alopex found renewed strength from this, and came back to her senses. The purple markings on her face faded to a blue color, signifying the break from Kitsune's control. Delighted to be back with her friends, she accompanied Raphael and Angel back to New York.

The last we see of her, she's with the Turtles enjoying the sight of Pepperoni sleeping, and later watching a Gamera movie with Raph as Pepperoni wakes up and runs off with one of Raph's sais.
