Bloodsport and Ratcatcher 2[src]

Cleo Cazo[1] is the daughter and protégée of the original Ratcatcher, dubbing herself Ratcatcher 2.[3] Under his guidance she turned to a life of crime, while being aided by an army of small rodents which she can communicate with and control. After being arrested, she became a member of the second Task Force X strike team sent to Corto Maltese, where she formed a close relationship with Bloodsport.[4]

Biography

Early life

Cleo Cazo was born to the criminal known as Ratcatcher.[3] He taught her to tame, train, and control rats over the years, and when Ratcatcher was taken down by the Batman, the young woman took up his mantle and became Ratcatcher 2, using her trained rats to commit crimes.[citation needed]

Life of crime and capture

While a criminal, Cleo evaded the police several times and grew quite fond of one rat in particular, who she named Sebastian and treated as a pet. Unfortunately, Clio was caught by local law enforcement after robbing a bank and sent to Belle Reve, where she became a member of Task Force X.[3]

Corto Maltese mission

In 2021, the team, including Ratcatcher 2, went to Corto Maltese to destroy the prison and laboratory known as Jotunheim, formerly used by the Nazi Party, as well as wipe out all traces of the mysterious Project Starfish. While on the mission, she met and befriended Bloodsport, and formed a close father/daughter type relationship with him.[5]

Personality

Cleo is sweet and endearing, but completely out of her element as a member of the Suicide Squad. She sees the good in everyone, and attempts to make friends with them, even dangerous serial killers like King Shark and the Peacemaker. However, her innocence does not make her helpless. Her ability to control all rats makes her a powerful enemy, and she will help anyone she's able to.
