HISTORY

The black lamb of the Bat family, the Huntress is known to use extremely violent methods in her effort to rid Gotham of crime, organized or not.

She was born into one of Gotham's larger crime syndicates, and the life of a rich little princess, hence the name "Anastasia of Gotham." This life was shatter though, when her family was slaughtered by a rival mob. Rather than wallowing in sadness and pitty, she chose to cheer herself up by seeking revenge on her family's murders and organized crime in general. Very successfully by the way.

Since then, her enemies have grown in stature, along with her own rank as a hero in the DCU. So much so, that she is now a member of JLA.

What has also grown are her relationships with the rest of the Bat family. Helena and Robin have been known to work together on several occasions, much to Batman's dismay. Even Batman has worked to improve her as a crime fighter, sponsoring her membership in the JLA, in order to show her rolemodels who succede with more nobel methods.

Her relationship with Nightwing though, is a story unto itself. Not only have their paths crossed on several occasions, but during one collaboration their working relationship grew into a VERY private relationship.
