Judge Karyn is a character from the Judge Dredd Megazine strip Judge Dredd, who has also appeared in her own strip. She was a Judge in Justice Department's Psi-Division who collaborated with Dredd on several occasions. They seemed to have a good working relationship.
Karyn's first recorded case involved the location and capture of a Raptaur, a malevolent alien silica-based life-form which was lurking in the Mega-City's shadows and eating random citizens. Unfortunately, the Raptaur was producing a "psi-fug" which meant that Karyn was unable to use her psi-talents to track it. This isn't the best way to introduce a new character.
It emerged that Psi-Judge Karyn's ultimate ambition was to replace Psi-Judge Anderson as the city's top psychic talent. However, she had a tendency to screw things up which culminated in her being possessed by a malevolent psychic entity while trying to imprison it within her own mind, copying an achievement of Anderson's years earlier. She was last seen locked up in a cell in Psi-Division, her mind apparently irretrievably lost.
