"You see, unlike you, I did not have fancy scientists for parents. I did not collect scholarships or attend fine institutions. My career options were limited."
—Amunet Black to Caitlin Snow[src]

Amunet Black is a crime lord in Central City, the boss of Norvok and, formerly, Caitlin Snow.

Biography

Amunet is a major crime lord who sells stolen technology in the meta-human black market ever since the particle accelerator explosion in Central City. At the time of the explosion, she was working as a stewardess on a flight but after gaining her powers, her first victims were staff members who had previously groped her[1]. The CCPD has had trouble apprehending her because of her unrivaled strength. After some time, she let Norvok work for her.[2]

Employing Caitlin

Amunet owned technology that caught Caitlin Snow's attention, as she felt her Frost side getting stronger after leaving Team Flash. Desperate, she decided to use the technology, but in exchange for using it, Amunet made her the 'muscle' of her operations.

Six months later, Caitlin decided to leave her job at Amunet's.[3] Amunet then found a man she nicknamed "The Weeper", who was affected by the wave of dark matter after Barry Allen came out of the Speed Force. She kidnapped the Weeper and locked him in chains because his tears are psycho-active. She then proceeded to sell the tears as a drug at her bar.

After three weeks, Amunet sent Norvok to "pick Caitlin up" and return her to her job. Frost later confronted Amunet at her bar and attempted to get Frost back again for her to guard The Weeper, a valuable product in the underground market. Frost insisted on quitting, leading tension to build in their powers, until Iris interrupted them and left with Frost. Amunet let them be, making her "think she can walk away".

Amunet confronted Frost, surprised as she was expecting one of Amunet's lackeys. Amunet emerged victorious as she then repeatedly jabbed Frost's face with her metal fist, until the police arrived and were shot as well. Amunet looked back at Caitlin, who was suddenly gone.

Later, Amunet found businessmen who were interested in buying The Weeper, interested in using the meta's special tears to fabricate and mass-produce a new brand of narcotic. She then saw Felicity and Iris, who were caught attempting to interrupt the transaction. Amunet immediately recognized Iris from the bar. Caitlin shows up for a final confrontation, as Amunet ordered the men to fire at her, but Caitlin sent forth a powerful gust of cold and freezing air to knock Amunet's associate lackeys down, before emerging from the fog in her Killer Frost form, who protected herself along with Iris and Felicity in a sturdy ice dome. Amunet was ready for one last shot at the women, when Cecille turned on the crane magnet, which attracted Amunet's pieces of metal. Frost was getting ready to kill Amunet with a sharp icicle her. Humiliated and defeated (deprived of The Weeper, her captive), Amunet vowed to ruin something for Frost one day, and escaped.[2]

Personality

Amunet is shown to be highly intelligent as proven how she kept a low profile. She appears to have no remorse what she does shown what she did to the meta she called the Weeper. She appears to have a god complex when she battled Killer Frost and promised to make her pay. Amunet also seems to have an eccentric side to her nastiness. She speaks with courtesy and values manners despite the often barbaric and horrendous situations she is personally overseeing or causing.
