Celine Patterson aka Skitter is a member of the Teen Titans. She has the ability to turn into an insectoid-like creature when she sleeps. Skitter was given her name by her sister Claudia Patterson, who wanted to protect Skitter as she said the name made her as least threatening as possible.
The Teen Titans were ambushed by Detective Jocelyn Lure and a squad of armed police officers from the New York City Police Department, but Skitter intervenes by attacking them with her webbing binding them together. Skitter joined the other young heroes on their trip to S.T.A.R. Labs where they are meet by the villainous Grymm used his psychic abilities to manipulate her simple mind into freeing him.
However Grymm was later defeated with the help of Bunker, which freed Skitter from his psychic thrall. She has been shown to have a strong friendship with Bunker. At one point the Titans were teleported to the Crucible to take part in the "Culling" but Skitter was left behind. Whilst alone another metahuman approached her, which leads to the possibility there is another person with Skitter's insectoid abilities.
