"When we first discussed the direction for this character, I think we all agreed right off the bat that we wanted to focus on her 'warrior' side a little more," wrote senior art director Chris Robinson. "That means moving away from the more doe-eyed version we know now toward a character you would expect to see fighting on the front lines alongside any of her Horde brothers and sisters."
