The Zarana is a female character who features in G.I. Joe.
Personality and attributes
She was noted for being rude, tight-fisted and generally mean.
Her sheer talent could have led to her having a brilliant career on the professional stage. However, it was said that her evil nature led to her embarking on the career of becoming a criminal. In fact, this somewhat affected her disguises as she could not maintain her cover for long without revealing her truly nasty nature.
Powers and abilities
Similar to her brother, she could also change the colour of her skin. Her talents for skill acting along with her masterful use of make-up and disguise allowed her to assassinate her targets. Unlike her brother, Zarana tended to use method-acting in order to completely become her target. This allowed her to impersonate the way they think, feel and react to another person. Thus, she was notable for being an astounding mimic and a quick study who only needed moments of observation before she was able to assume a person's body language along with voice characterisation down to the smallest detail.
She was also knowledgeable in small arms, explosives and edged weapons.
