Selina Kyle, aka the Catwoman, is a morally ambiguous master thief whose goals range from pure self-interest to large-scale charity depending on her mood.
Never shying from a challenge, her stealth and agility as a world-class criminal, and her mastery of the martial arts, make her a formidable opponent but, although she began her career as an amoral burglar, she has since somewhat reformed and begun protecting the less fortunate in Gotham City's East End district.
When she was a child, Selina Kyle’s brutalized mother committed suicide and her violent father drank himself to death not long after. Remanded to the Sprang Hall Juvenile Detention Center, Selina opted instead to take her chances on the streets of Gotham City. While attempting to make a life through pickpocketing, Selina was adopted by a traveling carnival, the members of which taught her how to properly steal as well as sleight of hand, contortionist gymnastics and other performing arts that might help her survive. After her mentor died from a botched performance, she left the carnival at age 17 and returned to the streets in the East End district. Following various botched burglaries, she took to working as a dominatrix after an attempted burglary went sour; meeting and taking care of a 13 year-old prostitute named Holly Robinson in the process.
After witnessing a major confrontation between the vigilante Batman and the corrupt Gotham City Police Department, Selina was inspired to take up her own costumed-gimmick to assist in her burglaries. However, though successful, the majority of her jobs were blamed on the Batman.
Seeking to achieve her own identity, she took to scratching the faces of her victims as a way to identify herself from the vigilante; one of the most being Carmine Falcone, leader of the Gotham City Organized Crime Family.
Clawing her way to the top of the criminal tree, Selina committed only the most audacious robberies; stealing only from the rich and corrupt, and made it a point of honor to never kill anyone unnecessarily.
It is perhaps for this reason that the Batman never pursued her as relentlessly as he did the other criminals in Gotham City. Knowing that she often gave her stolen riches to the vulnerable citizens in East End, he would often turn a blind eye to her criminal escapades and she in turn would occasionally offer her talents to assist in a mission or case.
