She couldn't speak, she couldn't read, she didn't even have a name. But there was something special about this cheerful and dependable, albeit a bit strange, new girl that made former Batgirl Barbara Gordon take notice.

The new girl ended up saving the life of Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon, Barbara's uncle/surrogate father, from Cain, the world's most deadly assassin...who just happened to be her own father.

Barbara and the rest of the so-called "Batsquad" (Batman and his confederates) soon discovered that the girl named Cassandra had been raised since infancy by assassin David Cain, and trained in every form of combat imaginable. It was much later that they also discovered that, at an early age, she had unwittingly taken a man's life.

Her own life ever since has been an attempt to atone for that one, terrible action or, failing that, to give her life saving others. And so, at the urging of the original Batgirl, the Dark Knight -- unaware at the time of the full extent of Cassandra's past -- took her under his wing and made her the new Batgirl.

Batgirl later learned to speak with the help of a telepath; unfortunately, her new verbal abilities impeded her capability for reading body language and thus predicting her opponent's moves. The martial artist and assassin Lady Shiva helped her regain that talent, but insisted upon a deathmatch in return. In the ensuing fight, Batgirl defeated the previously-unbeaten Shiva and proved she may now be the greatest martial artist in the world.
