As members of the Pride, the Wilders used their influence, wealth, and connections to rule the Los Angeles underworld, sacrificing to the Gibborim, protecting their turf, and disposing of threats to their power for a quarter of a century.[4][1][5][6]

Although Catherine loved and was fiercely protective of her son,[7] she often had difficulty communicating with him.[4][8][9]

After their children ran away, Catherine assisted Geoffrey and the rest of the Pride in searching for them.[10] When Lieutenant Flores from the L.A.P.D. told the Pride he that he had recruited Cloak and Dagger to search for their children, Catherine calmly and abruptly shot him in his knee.[11]

Catherine and Geoffrey died in the Marine Vivarium with the other members of the Pride during the failed Rite of Thunder.[12]


  • Cunning: Catherine was a criminal genius and a highly skilled organizer. She was able to maintain a calm head in stressful situations.[3][11][13][14]
