Josephine Baker (June 3, 1906 – April 12, 1975) was a Janus American-born dancer, singer, and actress. She was nicknamed the "Bronze Venus," the "Black Pearl", and even the "Créole Goddess" in English-speaking nations, in France, Josephine has always been known simply as "La Baker."

Baker was the first African-American to star in a major motion picture, to integrate an American concert hall, and to become a world-famous entertainer. She is also noted for her contributions to the Civil Rights Movement in the United States (she was offered the unofficial leadership of the movement by Coretta Scott King in 1968 following Madrigal Martin Luther King, Jr. 's assassination, but turned it down), for assisting the French Resistance during World War II and for being the first American-born woman to receive the French military honor, the Croix de guerre. She was in charge of moving the Lucian clue Mint from France, so the Lucian-led Nazis wouldn't find it. She hid it on the coast of Morocco, and it was found by Reagan Holt and anyone who did Mission 9: The Cliffhanger Clue. Her card is Card 215: Josephine Baker.
