One of the most feared martial fighters on Earth, Lady Shiva ranks amongst the best martial artists in the world. While not necassarily an assassin, Shiva is associated with Ra's al Ghul's League of Assassins and sells her services as a mercanary when she is not challenging other great martial artists across the globe in duels to the death.
Sandra and Carolyn Wusan were sisters that both displayed an affinity for the martial arts. When David Cain murdered Carolyn as part of his plan to create the perfect fighter, Sandra swore vengeance; tracking Cain to the League of Assassins. Defeated by the League, Cain offered to spare her life in exchange that she bear him a child.
Having become aware of how powerful she could potentially become, Sandra agreed and participated in Cain's plan; learning more and more martial arts until she surpassed him.
Now known as "Lady Shiva", Sandra travels the globe as a mercanery and hired assassin. Offering challenges to fellow martial artists and becoming known and feared as one of the greatest martial artists in the world.
