Cologne is the great grandmother of Shampoo, and is also from the Village of Amazons. Since Cologne is so old, she obviously possesses a great amount of knowledge of the martial arts, much of which she's shared with Shampoo, in hope that Shampoo would become a strong warrior.
After learning about Ranma's secret, Shampoo returned home to China, and Cologne told her that she would have to train all over again. But where Cologne chose to train was a mistake. When in the middle of the Jusenkyo, Cologne knocked Shampoo into the Maoniichuan, the Spring of Drowned Cat.
Shampoo explained about the circumstances surrounding her and Ranma, and Cologne, trusted the fact that Ranma would make a good strong husband for Shampoo, moved to Japan, with Shampoo, where she opened, and runs the restaurant, the Cat Cafe.
Cologne has "trained" Ranma many times, even though it seems that all she does is cause him trouble. But the only reason Cologne is letting some of the secret Amazon martial arts tricks go, is because she is figuring a way to get Ranma to marry Shampoo, and move back to China with them.
Cologne is a very calm, together, and very wise and smart person. She has her comic sides where she over exaggerates her seniority. She's always ploting new ways to get Ranma to marry Shampoo, and has many difficult tricks she puts Ranma through. Although she is honorable, because she'll give you the benefit of the doubt if you beat her.
