One of Gotham City's best, and most emotional, cops, Montoya was an officer in the Major Crimes Unit. She was one of the police officers who had a great deal of respect for the masked vigilante Batman, and also had a strange almost-friendship with Two-Face, who was infatuated with her. She was first partnered with Harvey Bullock, then with Crispus Allen, a relative newcomer to the unique policing environment of Gotham City. Her father, Hernando, did not entirely approve of her occupation, and neither of her parents approved of her romance with chef Daria Hernandez.

At one point Montoya quit the force, befriended the Question, and assumed the role after his death. She later returned to the force.
