Mary Turner was the assassin sent by the Court of Owls to coerce Commissioner Gordon into letting his police force handle the Night of the Owls ineffectively, and into inadvertently lighting a modified Bat-Signal which filleds the sky with the symbol of the Court of Owls, thereby killing hope that the Batman would save Gotham.[1]

As a child, she was horribly disfigured by a bomb attached to a balloon - an innovative attack by Emperor Hirohito, meant to cause panic in the United States during World War II. As such, her attack on Gotham City as a Talon involved the use of similar devices. On the Night of the Owls, she faced Batgirl, but despite her superior fighting skills, she let Batgirl go, feeling kinship because they both wore masks.[2]

Later, Catwoman broke Mary out of Blackgate Penitentiary having been hired by a prominent member of the Court. When she realized his motivations, though, she turned on him, and with Batgirl, they defeated his Talons - including Mary, who turned on her master in the name of friendship with the two women. In order to protect Mary, Catwoman faced the police alone, leaving Batgirl to get Mary out.[3] Batgirl's solution was to find a place for Mary with the Birds of Prey[4], giving her the codename "Strix" - which is Latin for "owl".[5]
