Technical details

Character details

There have been multiple designs of her; one portraying her as a girl wearing a red fedora, with short red hair with a stylized "RH" hairclip, pink-colored eyes, and wearing a black-and-white dress. The other design portrays her as a businesswoman with short red hair with highlights and red eyes, wearing a red fedora, a grey+red business suit, a suitcase that she's rarely seen without, and in some cases, a trenchcoat.

She is one of the eldest daughters of GNU/Linux; still following the ideals of her mother, although she has made some questionable business decisions in the past, such as adopting eCOS, only to fire her caregivers and burn down her home shortly after. She is also the sworn enemy of SCO Unix

She was quite timid when she was younger, although she became the businesswoman she is today because she wanted to be a better role model for her younger sister, Fedora; whom often teams up with her on spy missions. She also has several decedents of her own; such as Mandriva, PCLOS, and SAM
