Ed Skudder was inspired to create Lotus by her Gang. Lotus's initial design, published online by Skudder, refers to his as "Irish" as well. Her gang is Nathaniel, Dylan The Cleaner, Juleka, Otto The Doctor. Lotus's name is shared by a previous heroic arctic fox who is a photography enthusiast.
During the film production, the character Irish or Enchanted, was created by director Juanita Wilson, about making a irish princess character, as he likely stated "A character created with the thought of'a celtic princess who just wants to discovery once."
Lotus is a celtic princess woman with white fur that covers most of her body, and black eyes and a long fluffy tail (similar to that of Miles "Tails" Prower) with a little bit of blue.
