Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, none of the Vypras were ever animated.

Headcanon

Ann Conda was born December 10, 1970. One of Cobra's youngest special agents, she was recruited shortly before Cobra's public re-emergence in May 1991. The Vypra twins, Obake Chiyome and Obake Chiyojo, were born September 4, 1968 at the main Arashikage training center and were brought into Cobra's service by Storm Shadow in January 1993.

VYPRA was born in New Orleans, but was raised in the backwoods and swamps of Louisiana. She grew up mean, nasty, and uncontrollable. She would have enlisted in the military but regarded soldiers as "wimps." She finally signed up with COBRA, liking both the name and the attitude of the organization. She arose astonishingly fast through the ranks and proved herself as someone not to be underestimated. Although her primary specialty as a driver of the Rattler 4-WD, she doesn't need to be behind the wheel of a Cobra vehicle to be a threat to the G.I. Joes. She's just as effective all be [sic] herself.
From General Hawk's Files: "Where does Cobra FIND people like this? Vypra looks small and slight, but she drives the Rattler like she's in a monster truck show. The only thing more dangerous than her driving skills are her fighting techniques. She's one of the nastier threats to come out of Cobra's rank and files in recent years."

The ARASHIKAGE ninjas carry the most finely crafted swords ever created. Just as beautiful as they are lethal, these swords are created by the legendary swordsmith Onihashi at an ancient forge hidden in a sacred mountain. The sword is much more than a weapon for Arashikage ninjas; it is part of their being, an extension of their very selves. The forge from which these swords are crafted is a place of myth and mystery, and must never be breached by those unworthy to enter it. To keep this sacred place safe, the VYPRA ninjas—twin daughters of the swordsmith and martial arts warriors of exquisite skill—guard the forge with their lives.
"The sword is the ninja. Respect and honor the place from which your heart and soul were born."
