Formidable athlete and martial artist.
Rose/Rhosyn Forrest's split personality awakened when her father, a police officer, was gunned down by henchmen of the criminal organization known as the 100. As the Thorn, a costumed vigilante, she stalked the streets of Metropolis, and opposed the 100 whenever she was able. After a night of crime-fighting, she would return to Rose's apartment, fall asleep, and awaken the next day with no memory of her dual life. Eventually, the last of the 100 was put behind bars and the Thorn retired. Years later, as the 100 had re-formed as the 1000, she returned, joining Booster Gold and Superman in the battle against them. Today, the Thorn continues to patrol the streets of Metropolis at night-time.
