Salu Digby is the real name of Shrinking Violet, a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes.

Salu comes from the planet Imsk, whose inhabitants have the ability to shrink in size to the sub-atomic level. Salu was born on Earth, so her ability was unique among her peers and she applied to the Legion for membership.

Shrinking Violet was for a time romantically involved with Colossal Boy, but later began seeing Duplicate Boy of the Heroes of Lallor. Violet was kidnapped by Imskian rebels and held in a sensory-deprivation tank for months, while her place was taken by a Durlan actress named Yera. Yera believed that she was just taking Violet's place while she was on vacation and had no knowledge that she was involved in criminal activities. While in Violet's place, Yera and Colossal Boy fell in love. Element Lad exposed Yera as an imposter and the Legion rescued Violet from the rebels.

Since her return to the Legion, Salu has become a more hardened person than her previous shy personality. She has completed a second round of the Legion combat training, to prevent such an incident from happening again.
