Little is known of the Indigo Tribe as they are a reclusive group of monks with their own language known to only to themselves (and untranslatable by the Green Lanterns). The Indigo Light stands for compassion, defined as the ability to empathize with others while retaining distance and understanding the motivations of others. As such, they are able to access and redirect the powers of other lanterns when they are present, they possess the powers of flight, teleportation (though this consumes a lot of their energy), and flight auras. They are also able to force compassion on those who have none including, it turns out, themselves. ''Every'' permanent member of the Tribe is a {{Brainwashed}} former sociopath.

Munk later sought out Kyle Rayner, as an Indigo Power Ring had sought the Green Lantern on Earth on its' own. Calling Rayner a Ring Thief, Munk used his Power Ring's teleportation ability to enable the other Lanterns to follow Kyle Rayner to Oa, and then to Okaara when Larfleeze battled the Guardians on Oa.

* DarkAndTroubledPast: It's implied he has one, like all the Indigo lanterns, when on a mission with Fatality, she notes he's built and moves like a warrior, and how when he shows up he analyzes the situation to find all the tactical advantages. She asks who he was before joining the tribe, and he merely looks down not saying anything.
