Felicia was first introduced in Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors as one of two female characters along side Morrigan Aensland. She has appeared in every game in the series and in numerous cross overs including Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 along with Morrigan, B.B.Hood and Anakaris.

Background

Felicia is a Catwoman who was taken in and raised by a Sister named Rose who gave her the name Felicia from the word Felicity. Despite her identity as a Darkstalker being exposed, she was not turned away by her as Felicia had feared. When Rose passed away, Felicia left her town hoping to be a musical star.

She knew that the outside world was not pretty as it was filled with much prejudice towards Darkstalkers for being different. Despite this, Felicia never lost hope, as she remembered what she was told before that one has to obtain happiness on their own. She wishes there to be a way for peaceful coexistance between Darkstalkers and humans alike. For that, she pursues her dream of becoming a famous musical star to serve as a bridge between the two races.

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 successfully started a musical with Felicia being the main star after being scouted by a talent agent.

In the events of Vampire Savior, she wondered about how she could make others happy. In her ending, she constructed an orphanage named the 'Felicity House'.

In the Udon comic, Felicia struggles to score a big break in media, but her status as a Darkstalker made it difficult. In one audition, it was interrupted when a group of hunters chased Jon Talbain in, where Felicia quickly repelled them. She was shocked when Jon then attacks her despite helping him, and was forced to take him down. Taking pity on him, Felicia drags Jon back to her apartment to recover, where she learned of the werewolf's past and his animosity towards humanity in general. To prove he is wrong, Felicia takes Jon with her to visit the orphanage she grew up in, where she was welcomed with open arms. One night, when Jon transformed, he was confused when a kid wasn't shocked at his appearance, merely saying that since he's a friend of Felicia's, he's a friend as well. Felicia peeked in, telling Jon that he'll have to change his opinion of humans after this exchange.

Personality

She is an energetic and optimistic catgirl who enjoys singing, dancing and making friends with people. All she wishes for is peaceful coexistence with humans and doesn't resort to fighting unless she cannot avoid it. Because of this, she stands out among all the other Darkstalkers, many of whom are antihero at best.

Curse of the Cat Woman

In 1967, the same year chosen as Felicia's birth year, Edward Field wrote the poem Curse of the Cat Woman.

It sometimes happens that the woman you meet and fall in love with is of that strange Transylvanian people with an affinity for cats.

You take her to a restaurant, say, or a show, on an ordinary date, being attracted by the glitter in her slitty eyes and her catlike walk, and afterwards of course you take her in your arms and she turns into a black panther and bites you to death.

Or perhaps you are saved in the nick of time and she is tormented by the knowledge of her tendency: That she daren't hug a man unless she wants to risk clawing him up.

This puts you both in a difficult position-- panting lovers who are prevented from touching not by bars but by circumstance: You have terrible fights and say cruel things for having the hots does not give you a sweet temper.

One night you are walking down a dark street And hear the pad-pad of a panther following you, but when you turn around there are only shadows, or perhaps one shadow too many.

You approach, calling, "Who's there?" and it leaps on you. Luckily you have brought along your sword and you stab it to death.

And before your eyes it turns into the woman you love, her breast impaled on your sword, her mouth dribbling blood saying she loved you but couldn't help her tendency.

So death released her from the curse at last, and you knew from the angelic smile on her dead face that in spite of a life the devil owned, love had won, and heaven pardoned her.

Felicia was a central protagonist in Darkstalkers the Animated Series, who, with other Darkstalkers such as Jon Talbain, Rikuo and occassionally Donovan Baine, fought against Pyron. Rather strangely, the show portrayed her as a centuries-old shapeshifter wearing a costume, rather than an actual catwoman. She also appears in the Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge OVA, as the lead of one of the three major plotlines of the miniseries.

Trivia

  • Felicia was originally was going to be designed as a werepanther. Even earlier, the initial idea for her character was a large African woman with the power to become a leopard and maul the opponent.
  • Felicia has the largest bust of the Darkstalker females, beating even SNK's Mai Shiranui by one centimeter.
  • Although her fur preserves her modesty, Felicia is fully naked and wears no clothing. Her bare butt remains uncovered and can be seen during some attacks.
  • She has the second-most appearances outside of Darkstalkers behind Morrigan.
  • In UMvC3, her win quote against Frank West has her mentioning her goal of extending her career from musicals to film. This could also be seen as a reference to her Pocket Fighter storyline where she sought out Ken to gain a movie contract.
  • Felicia is the first barefoot female fighter in a fighting game.
FeliciaYellowIris

Felicia, Yellow Iris costume inUMvC3

  • Felicia's DLC for UMvC3 has her play as Yellow Iris from Battle Circuit, a classic Capcom beat-em-up. Yellow Iris was heavily inspired by Felicia, even having some of Felicia's attacks in her moveset.
  • In the Chinese manga adaptation, Felicia is involved in a love triangle with both Jon Talbain and Demitri. She also has a human form.
  • Like Morrigan, Felicia was voiced consistently in the games up to Cross Edge by her original voice actress, Kae Araki. As of Marvel vs Capcom 3, she is now voiced by Kana Asumi.
  • Felicia shares some similarities with Sonic the Hedgehog. Their battles techniques, involving rolling into a ball (her rolling bucker and his spindash) and their kicking moves (her delta kick and his numerous kicking attacks). They're also the fastest characters of their franchise, and are both animal/human-like creatures.
  • Felicia's official art for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is visually similar to her official art from the original Darkstalkers.
Felicia Revilations Personas

Revelations: Persona

  • In Revelations: Persona, the catgirl-type enemy Nekomata has the same name (in the English version) and traits as Felicia.
  • In MvC2, Felicia is the only female character who is barefoot.
  • Felicia's Midnight Bliss form is a shout-out to the famous skirt blowing action of Marilyn Monroe.
  • Some of Felicia's artwork depicts her incorrectly with blue eyes instead of green, and it seems to have become an increasingly common error, even her Marvel vs Capcom 3 character model having this incorrect eye color.
  • She breaks the fourth wall in one of her win quotes in Darkstalkers 3; mentioning her appearances in Nightwarriors, Puzzle Fighter, and Darkstalkers. She also mentions Blanka from Street fighter in her ending in Nightwarriors; Darkstalkers' Revenge.
  • Felicia was featured in ScrewAttack's popular web series Death Battle, a show dedicated to analyzing similar characters from various fictional works, and pitting them against one another in order to determine a possible outcome. She was pitted against Taokaka of the BlazBlue series and lost, notably due to her opponent's slight speed advantage. The video, however, seemed noticeably biased against Felicia, with host Wiz talking as though she's a laughably weak joke character (making such bizarre, unsourced statements as, quote, "The other Darkstalkers consider her to be one of the weakest of their kind" and claiming that she only "somehow manages to hold her own" with her friends' help), believing her to completely lack fighting experience, and even implying that finding her attractive is wrong because of her cat features.
    • Felicia would later return in the show's spin-off series, DBX, assisting fellow Darkstalker Jon Talbain in his fight against Terry Bogard of SNK's King of Fighters/Fatal Fury series. Her interference allowed Jon to gain the upper-hand and ultimately defeat his foe.
