“O you, the wisest and fairest of the Angels,
God betrayed by destiny and deprived of praise,

O Satan, take pity on my long misery!

O Prince of Exile, you who have been wronged
And who vanquished always rise up again more strong,

O Satan, take pity on my long misery!”

-The Litany of Satan, Charles Baudelaire

Note: I didn’t like how White Canary was whitewashed, which is something that the writers have continually been guilty of, so I brought Shado back for the role and kept Sara as the Canary. There were also only two ladies in the original cast so in addition to the racebending, I decided to add more ladies to the team.
