Lenny Creston

BIO:

Lenny Kreston is a private investigator and she works with Rody Birts, though there seems to be some romantic tension between them the two are partners in a business sense only. They have been hired by Wyler to find Freia (also a schoolfriend of Robert Garcia) and deliver her to him, the two appear to have a bad reputation within their profession and Lenny sees their new assignment as their 'big chance'. Lenny is a tough, straight-talking woman but with a caring nature underneath. She fights using a whip, though she appears to be fond of other uses (such as dragging Rody around).

What a fantastical 90's design... nothing like a chick in a jean-vest and ripped jeans - WITH a red headband. In retrospect, somehow Lenny's design aged well. But when I first saw Lenny in 1996, I thought this design was painfully dated... and pretty boring. Compared to many other fighting game characters at the time, she was. 

Lenny's whip-based fighting style seems as random as her lazy outfit... but her animation is pretty entertaining. Otherwise, her overall fighting style, design, and personality are uninspired and underdeveloped. SNK seems to have thought so as well, since Lenny hasn't appeared in ANY other games after AOF3 - not even in a card game or background (to my knowledge). In some cases, not even super-smooth animation can save a design like this. Sorry Lenny Creston, you can go back to teaching 4th Grade now. I hope they pay you enough to afford better cloths, chika.
