Arkham City Bio
N/A

Image

Additional Information
The daughter of two of the world’s best killers, David Cain and Lady Shiva. Cain raised her with out language, only movement. She was an expert in many martial arts at an extremely young age and often watched him perform his hits. Escaping this life after her first kill, she roamed the world until she found herself in Gotham where, at seventeen, she was taken in by Oracle and given the new name, Batgirl.
She has only recently learnt how to talk, a feat that slightly effected her combat ability as it took away from her ability to 'read' body language and predict what a person will do next.
Despite their vast differences, Cassandra works well with Tim Drake as, after initial unease with each other, they have developed a mutual respect and have begun to instruct each other to suppliment the Batman's teachings. Cassandra takes her duties as Batgirl very seriously. She has no civillian life, but trains during the day and hunts criminals at night. Infact the only thing that gets in the way of her life as Batgirl is her rivalry with her mother, Lady Shiva.

Possible role in Arkham 3
Cassandra’s style fits the Arkhamverse perfectly, and she is certainly dark enough. Due to her poor language and detective skills Cassandra's involvement in any main story may be limited, but as the ninja-goddess of stealth and combat in the Bat-family, surely she'd be a shoe-in for Arkham Three's playable character DLC?

Essential reading
Batman: No Man's Land, Batgirl: Silent Running, Death Wish, Destruction’s Daughter, Batman: Gates of Gotham

Chances of appearing in Arkham3

Aaaah I remember when I first read NML and Cassandra Cain was intoduced. Loved the character, thought the premise of her being raised to read body language but not being able to speak was pretty unique.

I think Cass has a 6/10 chance of appearing. But its hard to tell. I dont think RS wants to introduce any more big heroes. I mean, Luicious Fox will proably be added. Speaking of which, I think I know who next weeks ally is..?

I hope Cassie makes it in. My dream list for A3 as far as playable characters go are Batman, Robin (Tim Drake), Batgirl (Cassandra Cain), Nightwing, Azrael (Jean Paul Valley), and Huntress.

I know Valley will be replaced by Michael Lane, but I'd prefer old school Azrael.
It's not who I am underneath...it's what I do that defines me.

It would definetly be interesting to see how Cassandra would look like in the Arkhamverse. The character could have a really good cameo, along with other members of the Bat family. I can't see her having key story involvement though, mainly due to her lack for words but also many non-Batman fan gamers may only be familiar with Barbara as Batgirl.

I doubt she'd be featured majorly in the plot, but most people know Dick Grayson as Robin and that worked out okay.

I want her in the next game real bad. Her and Huntress.

She's not the current Batgirl, before the DC Reboot, it was Stephanie Brown, Tim Drake's girlfriend. After the reboot, it's Barbara Gordon again, made able to walk after being paralyzed by the Joker. (There's no more Oracle anymore, in the reboot.)

But That's not what is happening in the Arkham-verse right now, so I am sure Cassandra Cain will be the Batgirl, but it would be cool to have all 3 skins. Barbara, Cassandra and Stephanie's respective costumes.
