Where Anyone is Possible
Talia's mother was the daughter of a warlord. She met and secretly married Ra's al Ghul, who was a mercenary at the time. The warlord found out about his daughter's love affair with Ra's and sentenced him to life imprisonment in the Pit. However, the warlord's daughter pleaded that she be sent in his place. She was with child and gave birth to Talia while imprisoned. One day, Talia's mother was killed by some of the inmates of the prison, leaving Talia all alone. A man in the prison became her friend and protector, and one day he held off the other prisoners while Talia climbed out of the Pit to freedom. She sought her father and returned to the prison to reunite with her friend. Ra's took them both in and initiated them into the League of Shadows. Talia, following in her father's footsteps, adopted the name Miranda Tate and began working to manipulate Bruce Wayne and destroy Gotham City once and for all.
Powers and Abilities:
Talia is a regular human with no superpowers. Repeated exposure to Lazarus Pits has left her in peak physical form, perhaps as advanced as Bruce or the other elite heroes from Gotham. The pits have also increased her life span. Due to her training, Talia is a master of both armed and unarmed combat. Her weapons knowledge extends from simple weapons to advanced modern weapons. She is also a master tactician, which has been necessary in her dealings in crime and espionage. These skills also transfer well to her being adept at seduction. She has also shown exceptional strategic ability, proven by her ability to fool the Sirens and command the recently established Leviathan crime organization.
Talia’s personality is incredibly three-dimensional. At first glance, she comes off as cold, calculating and discerning; much like her father. She makes no effort to show trivial warming to newcomers and she often despises most people she meets from the very first meeting. Her hard exterior is no doubt attributed to the strict and disciplined nature of her upbringing through Ra’s’ League and the various hardships she has endured throughout her life. She trusts very few people, and much of her actions are strengthened by the ideal that the only person she can rely on is herself. She is fiercely independent and protective of her feelings, but at the same time, has shown immense levels of heart.
