Leela is the captain of the Planet Express Ship. She has a devoted personality, always keeping her crew on track and ready to throw a few punches if necessary. Although her high-octane passions fuel the ship, they can sometimes be a double-edged sword. Her determination to uncover information about her past often gets in the way, becoming a weakness for her.
