History: Felina is the illegitimate daughter of a French nun and a Spanish anarchist, both dead. Raised as a panther-trainer and trapeze artist in a circus, she married American millionaire Wilbur Kholderup. But Kholderup was killed by the criminal sect of the Kriss, and Felina then became a black-cloaked heroine, using her circus skills, to avenge her husband. She is ably assisted by Lobjak, a Tibetan wizard, and Colonel Pembroke, two of her husband's friends. Her arch-enemy is Touan Naga, the mysterious leader of the Kriss.
