Catwoman is an antihero and notorious thief from DC Comics.
Born and raised in the slums of lower Gotham City, Selina Kyle escaped the abusive orphanage she was placed in following the deaths of her parents, and used her natural athletic agility for crime. At eighteen, she became a prostitute, where she met her friend, then thirteen year old Holly Robinson. Soon after, she also met her future nemesis/ally/love interest, Batman. Inspired by his actions, she decided to follow a similar pattern, alibet for crime instead of the law, thus becoming the thief known as Catwoman. Since then she has walked the line between alluring thief and anti-hero vigilante.
