Talia is the daughter of the legendary warrior, Ra's al Ghul and a loyal member of the Society of Shadows that he leads.


Early LifeEdit

Talia was born to an unknown mother and spent most of her youth traveling the world with her father, Ra's al Ghul, learning of his ideologies and skills that he demanded. She was held in high esteem among all of Ra's al Ghul's children, despite the fact that he considered women to be inherently inferior to men.

Enter BatmanEdit

Certain day Ra's assigned Talia to locate a former associate of his named Count Vertigo who had gone rogue. During her task, Talia first met Batman, beginning the pairs on/off again romance. Together the two stopped Count Vertigo's scheme, but Talia double-crossed Batman following her father's instructions.

Later, Ra's al Ghul met Batman directly and told him that Talia had been kidnapped along with his ward, Robin. Batman agreed to help Ra's locating them, but he eventually learned that it was all a set up to test his skills. Talia was part of the plan and the went along with it because she had fallen in love with Batman and she intended to convince Batman of taking up his father's quest and become his successor by marrying her. The plan failed and Batman refused, earning Ra's enmity.

Talia and Batman

However, during Ra's revival in the Lazarus Pit, Talia was almost killed by her crazed father, who was under the effects of the pit. Batman saved Talia and earned Ra's gratitude, but never a truce. Talia was divided between her loyalty to her father and her love for Batman, which is why she was the only person standing between them. Although she wanted her father to succeed, she couldn't allow Batman to be killed and so, she assisted the Dark Knight against her father, which allowed Batman to stop Ra's and destroy his plans. After these events, batman revealed that he also shared Talia's feelings, but they still parted ways.

Talia once again meets Batman to aid her in finding her father. Bruce would become more infatuated with Talia. He even admitted that he cared for her. After locating Ra's al Ghul and stopping from his scheming, the two leave one another once more.
