The love entity has inhabited several hosts over the last millennium, most notably the Earth-woman Carol Ferris. The entity emphasizes the aggressive nature in one's being, making the subject paranoid and highly obsessive. The Predator imbues its host with the power to latch onto and manipulate people's minds, and is able to change and affect them at the host's will.
Defeated time and time again by Green Lantern and losing her memory every time she returned to her human form as Carol Ferris, Star Sapphire formulated a plan to get revenge and take her rightful place as queen of the Zamarons. For that matter, Star Sapphire created a third personality: the Predator, a male figure based on Carol's business side, responding to her father's expectations as head of Ferris Aircraft. This Predator protected the company from different threats, such as Eclipso, the Demolition Team, and Jason Bloch. Creating a fake company called Continental Petroleum (Con-Trol) and using the mysterious Mr. Smith, Predator expanded his influence over Ferris Aircraft, planning to buy it eventually. Deep in Carol's subconsciousness, Star Sapphire used her love for Hal Jordan to force him into quitting the Green Lantern Corps. The Predator stalked Carol Ferris, trying to seduce her, which lead Hal to investigate and confront him, even without the ring. When Predator kidnapped Carol, he merged with her, giving way to a new version of Star Sapphire, more evil and sinister than ever. She took her place as queen of the Zamarons and even killed former Green Lantern Katma Tui only to haunt Hal Jordan.
