Dex-Starr is a member of the Red Lantern Corps.

Dex-Starr was originally a single woman's cat named Dexter, whom he loved as much as she loved him. One day someone broke into her home, and although Dexter attacked the intruder with his claws but he couldn't stop him. Dexter's owner was brutally murdered. When the police eventually arrived and saw Dexter they kicked him out of the house, yelling, "Scram!" as they said they didn't want him to ruin the crime scene. As he found a place to sleep, sad and alone, two hoodlums found him and shoved him into a sack, and he was thrown into the river.[1] Feeling the rage and sorrow in his heart, Atrocitus called out to him making him the Red Lantern "Dex-Starr" with Dexter soon using the ring to exact revenge against the two men who had placed him into a sack before attempting to throw it into a river. Afterwards, Dex-Starr flies back to his late owner's apartment and cuddles by her lifeless body crying and says, "I find who hurt you. I kill. I good kitty."
