What We Do Know: The Indigo Tribe is a nomadic group that has embraced the indigo light of compassion. They take compassion to the extreme, even going so far as to perform a mercy killing of the Green Lantern of Sector 3544 in the name of compassion. Their leader is the pale, female alien known as Indigo and they speak a primitive language made up of mono sybillic words that a Green Lantern's ring, which holds knowledge of all known languages, could not decipher.
Furthermore, the Indigo Tribe forgo material goods in favour of a spartan lifestyle, which is reflected in their compassionate nature. Each member carries a staff that looks to be shaped like a lantern and possibly holds each members respective power battery. In lieu of actual uniforms, they wear tattered, tribal-like clothing and their 'corps logo' is smeared on their skin and clothing with paint and possibly tattoos on the skin.
As they first appeared in Sector 3544, it is assumed their homeplanet is based there. The Blue Lanterns have stated they will have to join forces with the Indigo Tribe in order to combat the Blackest Night, but they seem to have been delayed in their seeking out the Indigo Tribe because of Larfleeze's attack on the Blue Lantern homeworld.
Powers: While our introduction to the Indigo Tribe has been brief, we know that they harness compassion from the emotional spectrum and, while not shown, it can be assumed their rings give them the same basic flight, communications and protection that all other rings provide their corps. In addition, Tales of the Corps #1 showed that the Indigo Tribesmen can analyze the emotional energy of other corps and then absorb and rechannel it using their staves and rings.
For example, their leader, Indigo, absorbed the energy of a dying Green Lantern and used it to perform a mercy killing on him. When confronted by a Sinestro Corpsmen moments later, she absorbed his attack and formed her own construct of yellow energy to scare him away, sparing his life instead of outright killing him in an act of compassion.
Weaknesses: None so far. Speculated they cannot form their own constructs and must rely on other light to be absorbed and rechanneled, but, again, this is merely speculation at this point.
