Lena And here we see Lena!

She'll factor into the larger story of course, but I am chuckling over how Diego made her look. I realize as I was posting this that she looks almost exactly like Gadget from "Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers".

But as I thought of that, I also thought what an amazing "dues ex-machina" type character! Chip was the leader with really no leadership skills, Dale was comic relief, then Monty was the big muscle, and then we get to Gadget who is described by wikipedia as "young female mouse and the team's pilot, mechanic and inventor", good lord! She appears to be the only one really qualified to be a Ranger! It's kind of like Abby Sciuto in NCIS. There seems to be an "adventure" troupe in which there is always someone who, when the chips are down, always provides some rediculous genius solution to help them out of a jam.

Is Lena like that? Will we fall to formula laid out in countless stories before us. I doubt it, but you know what they say, "a good writer barrows ideas, a great writer steals them outright". Have a great wednesday everyone!
