The daughter of two notorious assassins and adopted by Bruce Wayne
himself, Cassandra Cain is both a hero and a total badass. Her father
David Cain, long-time member of the League of Assassins, conceived her
with the purpose of creating the perfect assassin partner for himself,
after forcing her mother, Sandra Wu-San, to bear his child. Sandra went
on to become Lady Shiva, also one of the world’s deadliest assassins,
renowned for killing victims with her bare hands.
Cassandra entered the DC universe in the “No Man’s Land” crossover
story line in 1999, where she saves Commissioner Gordon’s life and is
given the Batgirl costume with the approval of both Barbara Gordon and
Batman. Cassandra also represents an important racial group in that she
is of mixed heritage, having both European and Asian blood. Another
interesting fact about her is that she’s a martial arts expert despite
spending a large portion of her life mute and illiterate. Cassandra has
recently taken up a new superhero moniker as Orphan in the pages of
“Detective Comics,” by James Tynion IV, Christian Duce and Fernando
Blanco, where she recently came into conflict with her estranged mother.

“You’re not gonna put me in a prison. You’re not gonna put any of us in a prison. You know why? Because you need us. Yes, the world is a vulnerable place, and yes, we helped make it that way, but we’re also the ones best qualified to defend it. So, if you want to arrest me, arrest me. You’ll know where to find me.”

“I like to think about the first law of thermodynamics, that no energy in the universe is created and none is destroyed. (…) Thousands and thousands of other beautiful things that were just as terrified to die as we are. We gave them new life. Good one, I hope.”
