Urthona is an apparent orphan born into the Orange colour caste of Steamtown. At some point prior to her first appearance the Portreeve of Steamtown has elevated her from that relatively humble beginning in life to the aristocratic Purple caste, in defiance of custom. His reasons for doing so, other than an innate love of mischief, are obscure.
Known Power and Abilities:
Other than in relation to certain matters subject to hypnotic conditioning, Urthona is a world-class detective and a fine thief catcher.
Urthona is deadly accurate marksman with 40/40 vision.
As Chief Warden (equivalent to Chief of Police or Police Commissioner) of Steamtown, a city state of over 6,600,000 individuals, Urthona can not only call upon a large authoritarian force of Wardens and a network of informers but also a variety of vehicles, exotic weapons and super powered individuals to assist her efforts in maintaining order.
Immunity to Hypnosis and Mind Control
Urthona's mind is already in a form of thrall to the Portreeve, making her highly resistant to further hypnosis and basically immune to Mind Control.
