Turanga Leela (better known as simply Leela) was originally a career placement officer in a cyrogenics lab for new defrostees in the year 2999. She quit her job after meeting Philip J. Fry, a defrostee from 1999, and Bender, a job-deserting bending robot. They are all employed as the crew for the Planet Express, an intergalactic delivery service run by Hubert J. Farnsworth. Leela is the captain of the ship, proving herself to be a competent officer and often rescuing the less-talented crew members.Leela and Fry's relationship is a major plotline that runs throughout the series. Fry is constantly seeking her approval. She frequently turns down his invitations for dates due to his immaturity but she has admitted that she loves his boyish charm. She sees Fry as a true friend and doesn't expect anything less from him although it does appear as if she's hiding/denying deeper feelings for him. She does eventually and openly admit that she loves Fry and in one episode they sleep together (even though they are occupying different bodies.)Leela has had a mysterious and orphaned upbringing. She's strong-willed but often feels self-concious about her distinct appearance. At one point, she elects to have surgery to change her one eye to look like two normal-sized eyes but she gets it reversed.Leela begins an unhappy relationship with a cyclops named Alcazar who convinces her into thinking that they are the only two members of their extinct race but it turns out he was a shapeshifting imposter. She meets her sewer-dwelling mutant parents who reveal the reason they gave her up for adoption. She discovers that they had left a note stating that Leela was an alien so she would live a better life than a mutant would.Leela's single eye affects her depth perception which is sometimes used to comic effect but it doesn't seem to affect her ability to pilot the Planet Express or her martial arts abilities. She is very athletic and in great physical condition with most males unable to match her physical combat.Leela has pity sex with a pompous and idiotic captain named Zapp Brannigan. Throughout the series, Brannigan brags about his night with Leela and constantly tries to win her affections, much to Leela's disgust.Leela is a committed environmentalist and animal lover, saving a Nibbler from its collapsing planet and adopting it as a pet whilst defying Brannigan's orders. In the series, the Nibbler reveals itself as a member of a wise and sophisticated race known as the Nibbolians.Katey Sagal voices Leela. Height: ~ 182 cm Show less «
