I'm not... doomed... to be bad... I am... a bat. This... is where I should be.
~ Cassandra Cain


Cassandra Cain is the daughter of David Cain and Lady Shiva, two of the world's deadliest assassins. David trained Cassandra from a young age to be a human weapon. She was an experiment, designed to prove to Mother, David's superior, that trauma-induced mental desensitization could be achieved naturally, instead of through drugs and psychic manipulation. Mother rejected her.

After her first assassination mission went awry, Cass escaped her father and sought out Batman to inform him of Mother's plans. After Mother's defeat, Cassandra stayed in Gotham to fight crime there, and later became part of the team co-lead by Batman and Batwoman, which also initially consisted of Spoiler, Red Robin, and Clayface.
