"Fuck all you do-nothing hater bitches! At least I found true love!"
A crazy 90's romcom obsessed psycho who can make people obey her or fall in love with her, which she has done multiple times on her love interest Doug.

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She looks very sweet, but will rip into others if she doesn't like them, or don't do what she wants.
  • Cute and Psycho: She looks rather cute, but is incredibly manipulative and crazy. Even Jane admits this to Rita.
    Jane: Yeah. Karen's cray-cray.
  • The Dreaded: Rita balks when Cliff tells her about Jane suddenly throwing out phrases like "cool beans", and even says that out of the other sixty-four personalities, Karen had to be the worst. Even Hammerhead and Jane can't stand Karen, especially in Cyborg Patrol when her torturer accidentally puts on Karen's favorite song. Jane lets out a Rapid-Fire "No!" as Karen takes over. For the most part on Jane and her alters' perspectives, it's less that they are afraid of her than that they all hate her.

  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When she activates her powers.

According to Rita, Karen has gotten together with him over a thousand times and she always wins him back...due to her power. When she uses her powers on Dirk in “Cyborg Patrol”, she calls him Doug instead of his actual name. It is the hint she uses her powers on people and calls them Doug.
  • Speaking Like Totally Teen: Averted. She knows a lot of teen slang and understands how to use them, but this just leads to Rita being confused and finding it annoying.
    Karen: What? No. Dougie and I are endgame!
    Rita: I don't know what that means. I just know that it's youthful and irritating.
