She is one of the few characters not to have died or killed another character.
She could be the female Asian equivalent of Pop, as her baby has eyes similar to those of Cub and both are single parents.
She could be Japanese because of her kimono, but may also be Thai because of her sun hat. Buddhist Monkey is most likely Chinese, though.
It is currently unknown where her spouse may be as he is never seen, though it may hint that they are either divorced or widowed (like Pop).
She is one of the only characters to be the same color as their real world animal counterparts. Most of the other characters have a completely different color from their counterparts (e.g. Lifty and Shifty are dark green while real raccoons are grey or brown).
