In a story called "Bad Water".

Who am I forgetting?

I don't think I'd want my team set in the LoEG continuity. For one thing, I'd want it more light-hearted, and in an different art style. Less 'R' rated, more 'PG'.

How is it without the Russian? Disorder.

Keep - Nadezhda Durova, The Cavalry Maiden. Woman who, while disguised as a man, became a decorated soldier in the Russian cavalry during the Napoleonic wars. She was the first known female officer in the Russian military. Her memoir, The Cavalry Maiden, is a significant document of its era because few junior officers of the Napoleonic wars published their experiences

 Anne Bonny  and Mary Read. Lady pirates  who posed as men  and found each other out while   swinging in the rigging on the same ship.

  When caught they both plead their bellies to avoid hanging

These are great, BUT they need to be during the right time period (mid to late 19th century).
