History

Cassandra Cain, daughter to the assassin who taught Bruce Wayne hand to hand combat and who trained Cassandra to be a deadly assassin from a young age. She was trained day & night in various styles to such an extent that when it came to any form of combat and could outfight, outrun, or outshoot anybody, including Cain. All before she had reached the age of nine. Cain taught her to use violence as her only means of communication, and she developed such keen fighting instincts that she was able to physically “read” her opponents body enabling her to anticipate the next attack. However, Cain made the mistake of puttnig her in the field too early. On her “graduation day” Cain assigned her to perform a hit which the nine-year-old performed like a professional, ripping his throat, however she was hardy stone cold. The realization of what she done horrified her and she left Cain instantly much to his despair.

At a time when other girls her age were feeling crushes and celebrating sweet sixteens, Cassandra was wandering the backstreets of the world, eventually arriving in the best hiding place on Earth, Gotham City,

Oracle, the former Batgirl, recognized the enigmatic street urchin’s unique abilities and recruited the girl to be one of her eyes and ears in No Man’s Land, gathering information on the streets on the city’s various criminals. Cassandra fought alongside Batman and his compatriots, aiding their efforts to restore order to Gotham City.

Batman, being a former student of Cain’s and aware of his methods, recognized the connection between the girl and the assassin. After saving Commissioner James Gordon’s life from an assassination attempt, Batman seeing her prowess as an asset, awarded her the costume and title of the new Batgirl, which he had just taken from the Huntress. Cassandra moved into the watchtower with Barbara Gordon, who became her guardian and friend.

While helping Batman rescue a young girl from the mob Cass runs into a man that would literally change her life. The chance meeting with a psionic metahuman who, not understanding her thoughts, he rearranged her mind so she could speak English. This had a negative effect on her skills, robbing Cassandra of her ability to “read” opponents by literally put words into Cassandra‚Äôs head. Given her newfound abilities to hear herself think Cassandra found herself unable to fight efficiently due to her head is filled with thoughts and ideas. Without, her special martial arts skills she was no longer capable of fighting crime and was forced to retire by Batman.

Cassandra discovered may never be able to regain her apparent deadly arts and so Batman decided that Cassandra needed to train harder without her gift. He gave her a CD collection of his 127 different fighting styles and asked her to learn them. She did and kept trying to defeat Batman in combat in order to regain the Batgirl costume.

Secretly however she was still fighting crime without her costume and just using face paint to hide her indentity. One trip however led her into a chance of a lifetime and possibly the only chance to regain the costume she is training so hard for.

Realizing how bad she was, Cassandra asked Shiva to help her regain her abilities. Shiva agreed but only if they would battle in a year. Over the next few nights, Cassandra trained vigorously until she had her abilities back and still had the ability to speak. After showing Batman her abilities were back, Batman returned to her, the cowl and cape and mantel of Batgirl.

Trained now to be a heroine of her own, Barbara teaches Cassandra how to speak and read English while acting as mentor. Cassandra wears the mantle of the Bat like a second skin, but that of an innocent teenage girl will likely feel forever alien.
