Kim Liang was a frustrated administrator at an insurance agency until she quit her job and was recruited by Madame Xanadu to assist Jim Corrigan in his role as The Spectre.[1] Her role was initially to watch Corrigan's body when the Spectre left it to conduct his missions of vengeance. Eventually Corrigan began to resume working as a private detective in between missions and she became his receptionist.[2] The two developed a romantic relationship[3][4] and Kim would eventually assist Corrigan in solving cases.[5][6]

Much later it was revealed that Kim Liang was actually an alternate form of Madame Xanadu she magically created as part of an elaborate plan to seduce the Spectre and steal his powers.
