Magdalene Kyle is the sister of Selina Kyle.

Maggie Kyle was born into a broken household and the sister of Selina Kyle, the costumed thief known as the Catwoman. Their abused mother slit her wrists and the father died due to his drinking habit when they were young.[1]

The two sisters took very different paths in life. Maggie grew up to be a nun and disapproved of Selina's criminal life as well as costume, but kept in contact with her. Eventually, she would leave sisterhood and marry Simon Burton.[2]

In order to get to Catwoman, Black Mask killed Simon and fed Maggie his eyeballs, which drove her insane. Selina later left her to be cared for in the Golden State Psychiatric Hospital of Villa Hermosa.[2][3]

After Raina Creel's henchmen tried to inject her to get to Selina who had moved to Villa Hermosa, Selina took her to stay at Fort Knox Self Storage, with Carlos Ayala and Aunt Linda.[3][4]

After Selina decided to leave Villa Hermosa, she took Maggie with her to move back to Gotham. Selina trades all her jewelry but her engagement ring for a 62 Jaguar. On the the drive from Villa Hermosa back to Gotham Maggie slowly leaves her catatonic state. First there car breaks down on the high way in new Mexico, a trucker gives them a lift to a truck stop bar in West Memphis Tennessee. Were they end up getting in a bar fight and arrested but Selina slips her cuffs and steals a police car leaving behind their bags (and Selina's stolen wedding dress). In West Virginia Selina steals some food from a gas station before they hop a train to get back to Gotham together.[5]
