[My name]'s Cleopatra, but I like my friends to call me Cleo.

— Cleopatra, "Scooped"

Cleopatra, or Cleo for friends, is a young female skunk that lives in the Great Forest. Because of her species, many creatures in the woods fear her, including predators and even Erebus.[1] The only exception is Shaggy Mane, with whom she forms a tight bond.[1]


Due to her being a skunk, Cleopatra leads a lonely life. She tells Shaggy Mane that he's lucky to have a family and friends to look after him, something she wishes she had.[1] She admits that she tends to overract due to instincts, which can result in her spraying those who startle her.[1] Once you get to know her, Cleo shows to be a very kind creature that will gladly help those who take the time to befriend her.

  • "Hey, smelling like I do really cramps your social life."
  • "Of course, I don't have a lot of enemies either. Even Erebus stays away from me. But you, you got a whole family who's probably worried sick about you."
  • "And what do you think [your family's] doing? Marching on their merry way to the Fairy Ring? No! I bet they're looking for you right now!"
