She has a "tricked-out" car.

Because, according to director Rich Moore, Shank is "the coolest character in this world of Slaughter Race."

She'll play kind of a big-sister role to Vanellope.

“If Ralph is Vanellope's big-brother figure, we wanted a big-sister figure. We wanted someone that Vanellope would look up to," said Moore.

And finally, although she LOOKS tough, she's actually one of the good guys.

Moore explained, "Shank’s lived a lot, she’s seen a lot, yet she’s got nothing but kindness in her heart."

Ralph Breaks the Internet comes out Nov. 21!
