What's so great about Lupo? Nicholai basically had his way with the entire Wolfpack and they also had a ton of trouble with a rookie cop.
Nicholai is more elite than most people realize. He's not just some mercenary. The man received training as a member of Spetznaz, a group comprised of THE craziest m************.... Ever. I would say that Mossad is on par but otherwise definitely more badass and elite than the SAS and the CIA.
And besides, Nicholai is Nicholai. He can do anything.
Lupo is a sexy badass. Love her accent and her assets. It's messed up but she singlehandedly killed her husband with her BAREHANDS because her husband was extremely abusive to their children. Lupo has the makings of a Twisted Metal contestant.
