The flower you picked has lovely petals. I wonder if the same is true of her soul.

Lady Shiva is a character appearing in Beware the Batman. She debuted in the episode Safe, but was first seen in the episode Family. She is a high ranking member of the League of Assassins.


Lady Shiva is the commander of the League of Assassins. She once commanded Silver Monkey up to his betrayal and she soundly defeated him. He had thought that the ninjas would follow his orders against her but he was wrong. The ninjas of the League fear her wrath much more than his. She now holds the Soultaker Sword and used it to drain the soul of Dr. Bethanie Ravencroft.
