+ History

The rogue called Dervish began her career as a member of the international terrorist organization, the Jihad. Known only as Nema, she and her lover Saied (Manticore III) joined the group in hopes of restoring Saied's body to normal. The Jihad's mission took them to the United States and en route, they had the misfortune of sharing a plane with the Outsiders.

The battle ended just as their plane landed and Dervish was captured by the authorities. She was unaware that Saied had been killed in the battle by Wilde. (#5) Fate once again intervened when Geo-Force was jailed in the Slab — the same facility in which Dervish was held. When the Outsiders broke him out of jail, Dervish hooked up with them, in hopes of finding Saied. (#9)

She accompanied them on one mission to free Looker from Roderick the vampire. During this, she learned that Wylde had killed Manticore. Various squabbles led the Outsiders to fracture in two and Dervish went her separate way. (#11) She resurfaced as a member of Eve's second Strike Force Kobra. (#16) She was captured and taken again to the Slab. (Green Lantern v.3 #79) She escaped again when Joker engineered a jailbreak. (Joker: Last Laugh #3)

+ Powers

Dervish is a highly skilled martial artist and hand-to-hand combatant.
