Violette was a ruthless and bloodthirsty pirate of the 19th century from the French-Belgian comic album "La vengeance du comte Skarbek" by Yves Sente and Grzegory Rosinski.She killed many sailors on her raids in the Caribbean and (before leaving this environment for taking part in a fraud in Paris to make a fortune out of the art of the painter Count Skarbek) a fellow pirate, she worked with for years. She was finally set by Skarbek and forced into a battle of fencing. Although she striped nude before the fight, to make her movement flexible, without the obstruction from her fancy dress, that did not help her from getting defeated by the hero. Disbelieving, he would kill her, she proved wrong.
Her character design is based on the US actress Halle Berry.
