I'm not doomed to be bad... I am a bat. This... is where I should be.
— Cassandra Cain

Cassandra Cain is a DC Comics superhero and an associate of Batman. She is one of the several characters to use the title of Batgirl, but she has also been known as Black Bat and Orphan.

The daughter of David Cain and Lady Shiva, Cassandra was raised by her father to be the perfect assassin. She grew up in total isolation from human language, which caused her to develop a unique understanding of body language, allowing her to predict the movements of her opponents with extreme accuracy. This ability made Cassandra into an extremely effective martial artist.

David sent Cassandra on her first assassination mission when she was eight years old. The experience traumatized Cassandra, who decided to flee from her father. Years later, she found herself in Gotham City, where she befriended Barbara Gordon, the former Batgirl. She worked as an informant for Barbara as Gotham City descended into anarchy, and ended up saving Commissioner Gordon from an assassination attempt. Her actions earned Batman's trust and respect, and he allowed her to take Barbara's place as Batgirl. After Batman's death at the hands of Darkseid, Cassandra passed on the mantle of Batgirl to Stephanie Brown. She relocated to Hong Kong and became a new vigilante called Black Bat.

In the New 52 universe, Cassandra's story is much the same, with slightly different circumstances. The major differences include David Cain's motivations in raising her and the fact that she never became Batgirl, being instead known as Orphan.
