Vixy Reinard McCloud by ACdraw Vixy Reinard McCloud by ACdraw
Yeah, I'm not dead.
Just been so goddamn busy with family, friends, travel, college, work, X-Mas and a load of other problems.

Anyway, here is Vixy, Fox McCloud's mother from the comics.
One thing about her was that she was said to have resembled Fara, so while she is a Red Fox I added a few Fennec features in there to help.
And of course, she is wearing that dress since no other clothing was really presented for her.

Age (at death): Early-mid 20's
Sex: Female
Species: Red Fox (may have had some Fennec lineage)
Fur Colour: Orange/Tanned and White/Light Yellow in areas
Eye Colour: Blue/Green
Height: 5'5''
Weight: Unknown

Info: Vixy Reinard McCloud was once a student at the Cornerian Academy. It is unknown what her studies involved but it is theorised by many to have have been science. During this time she came to the attention of the Academies top scientist, an Ape named Andross. It is assumed she became good friends with him without knowing that secretly he was falling in love with her.

Oblivious to this fact it was here she also met one of the Academy's most promising young pilots named James McCloud.
Eventually, the pair dated and soon fell in love. After graduating from the Academy, James proposed to her and she accepted and not long after their marriage Vixy gave birth to James's son, who they simply named 'Fox' in the same manner as she herself was named.

Life was seemingly happy for her and her family, but Andross who by this time had become bitter and obsessive over his desire for Vixy, tried to make her see that he loved her and (in his mind) he was the right man for her.
Needless to say, she refused, she had a husband and a son.
However, this gave Andross the idea that if he removed James and Fox from the equation, Vixy would be his.

He came up with a simple plan, whilst Vixy would go off to work and leave James and Fox at home, he would put a timed detonator to go off when James left (presumably with Fox) in his car. His plan had tragic consequences for all involved, Vixy's car had broken down that day and James let her use his.
When she started the vehicle, it detonated with her still inside it. Both men witnessed what happened and were left in grief, thus starting the bitter history between the McCloud's and Andross.

From then on James had to raise Fox on his own and Andross would spiral even further into insanity.
As an adult, Fox has no clear memories of his mother as she died while he was still a toddler. Instead, all he has are pictures, clothing and what others (mainly Peppy and his father) have told him about her. If only she had known that her son would become one of the greatest heroes in Cornerian history, she would most assuredly have been as proud a mother as one could imagine.
