Felicia (フェリシア) is a character from the Darkstalkers (or Vampire in Japan) fighting games. She is a catwoman with light skin, long thick blue hair, white fur and pink or red claws.
Felicia was raised by a Catholic nun named Rose. When Rose died, Felicia left her town hoping to be a musical star. During her travels, she met many other catgirls of her kind. With her newfound friends, she set out for her dream of being on stage. Eventually, she and her friends started a musical with Felicia being the main star. In the events of Darkstalkers 3, she wondered about how she could make others happy. In her ending, Felicia became a nun herself and founded an orphanage named "Felicity House."
Powers and Abilities
Felicia is very agile in combat with her techniques, being athletic and gymnastic in nature. She can roll like a ball in a manner similar to Sonic the Hedgehog and tackle her enemies. Her tail seems to be quite durable, as she can balance on it while delivering a double kick and even jab foes with it. She can also kick up sand for quick attacks, but due to the bluish color appearing in it, it is possible she can channel ki into her feet and expel it out through the kick. She has been seen tossing orange balls spontaneously that pop once they come in contact with something. She also displays, in her intro and the Darkstalkers OVA, the ability to morph in and out of a smaller housecat form.
She is an energetic and optimistic catgirl who enjoys singing, dancing and making friends with people.
In the Udon Comics version of Darkstalkers, Felicia is still looking for her big break into stardom; unfortunately being a catgirl proves to be a very large roadblock on the path to fame. Along the way, she runs into the werewolf, Jon Talbain who believes that humans are treacherous and vile, while she thinks that the current hatred between humans and Darkstalkers are just a few "bumps in the road." Despite the fact that his interference costs her a potential gig, Felicia asks Jon to accompany her, so that she can try to prove to him that humanity is not all bad. Eventually, they end up at the Catholic orphanage where Felicia grew up. Felicia's origins are much the same as well. One notable exception is the character of the nun who raised her. Here her foster mother is named Sister Cecillia and is still alive and active in her beloved foster daughter's life.
In the Chinese manhwa adaptation, Felicia is part of a triangle between Demitri and Jon Talbain, having known them from past encounters where she had made a difference in their lives and them in hers. When she was a little girl, her parents got attacked and killed by Bishamon, she herself barely escaping death. Felicia later agains her Darkstalker form and is captured by a circus to perform in its freak show. At the time, Demitri and Morrigan, in human guise, come across said circus where they see Felicia. Later that night, Demitri returns and breaks her out. Not only that, he gives the catwoman a vampic bite, which awoken her fighting instinct in order to help her hold on to her freedom. Later, she is met by Jon Talbain who was on the run from soldiers after being falsely accused of destroying a town since it was overrun by werewolves. Felicia goes about hunting down Bishamon in order to avenge her fallen parents, where she also reunites with Demitri and Jon. The three soon get involved with facing Pyron and his minions in order to prevent his coming to Earth.
