– Zarina the Tiger
Zarina the Tiger (ザリナ・ザ ・タイガー Zarina za Taigaa) is a 15-year-old anthropomorphic female, Mobian white tiger, and a freelance mercenary. She is the youngest daughter of Antonio and Lilac and the younger sister of Felix, Carmen, Leya, and Diego. However, it is later revealed that her father is actually General Seti.
A few days after her fifteenth birthday and upon learning she was being set up to an arranged marriage with Callum the Cougar of the House of Panthera. Not wanting to be through an arranged marriage with someone she sees as a brother, Zarina ran away from home.
Zarina is a slim white tiger with black stripes, pale blue eyes and shoulder-length white hair with black highlights and a tuft of hair covering her left eye. She has a blue feather earring on her right ear.
If she were human, Zarina would have an average teenager's appearance. She has a rather pale complexion, almost ghostly white, with long white hair with black streaks, usually tied in a low ponytail over her shoulder, and pale blue eyes.
Zarina is seen as calm, mysterious and stubborn, at times. She doesn't like to reveal her past to anyone. Zarina hates being told what to do, but she lets her charges tell her what needs to be done during missions. She would have joined G.U.N. but wasn't thrilled about being told when she had to go onto a mission and when she can't. Though, she will help G.U.N. when they need extra help. To most people, Zarina seems cold and heartless, but she really isn't. In addition, she has a soft spot for children.
When she was born, everyone believed that Zarina was a descendant of Vulcan. As a child, none of her magical powers appeared and she was thought of a burden to her family. Forgoing the laws of Mystique, her mother had her be taught martial arts, in secret, by her former lover, Seti.
Upon learning that Seti was her real father, Zarina's powers awoke, apparently put in a comatose state, revealing she was a descendant of the famous House of Cleopatra. In addition to her magical abilities, she is skilled in martial arts, stealth, and hand-to-hand combat skills.

- Weather manipulation: As a descendant of Cleopatra it is possible for Zarina to have the power to control the weather. Her father never had the power but her grandmother, Nefertiti, did. With this power, Zarina would be able to create storms, and other weather phenomena, however, it is unknown if she does have the power, or if she is able to control the power.

- Physique: Despite her constant training, Zarina still has the physique of a 15-year-old girl.
- Overdeveloped powers: Due to her powers being dormant for fifteen years, Zarina's powers are extremely overdeveloped to the point she can barely control them. This forces her to wear her inhibitor-like gauntlets, originally belonging to her ancestor, Cleopatra the Jackal, to limit how much power she can release.
- The Staff of Cleopatra: Before running away, Zarina stole the staff that was hidden in her stepfather's office. Upon touching it, the staff glowed and with the small amount of Chaos power inside, teleported Zarina out of Hidden Valley.
- Cleopatra's gauntlets: Once learning her true parentage, Seti took Zarina to Veton to meet his mother, her grandmother, Nefertiti. Zarina was given Cleopatra's gauntlets upon seeing her granddaughter's overdeveloped powers, something that Cleopatra had issues with herself, many centuries ago. Like Cleopatra, the gauntlets help Zarina limit how much power she can release, at the expense of not hurting anyone or herself.
