[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. The only exception is Shaggy Mane, with whom she forms a tight bond.
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. She admits that she tends to overract due to instincts, which can result in her spraying those who startle her. 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.
The Giver of Names
(after encountering Shaggy Mane) "Oh no! Not you again!"
"Don't give up on [your family] so easily. Not everyone has a family or friends who care about them. Take it from one who knows."
"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!"
(teasingly, raising her tail) "Hey, Erebus!"
"Well, if you give me a better name than "smell tail", I'll give you all a ride to the next Thunder Tree."
When first encountered, Shaggy Mane calls Cleo a "smell tail" due to her odorous defense mechanism.
