Nyssa is not known to the general public.


Among those in the know with the League or other shadowy organizations, Nyssa al Ghul is a loyal lieutenant to Ra's al Ghul, and a deadly foe. Smart and practical, she's ruthless in achieving the greater goals of the League.


Nyssa was born in Russia, her mother the sister of a member of the League and one of Ra's al Ghul's casual dalliances. Her mother died when she was just a child, only four years old. Her uncle brought the girl's existence to the Demon's attention. He came to see her only out of curiosity and duty to the man who owed him fealty. When he met her, though, his plan of leaving the girl to the rest of her family changed. Already she was a fierce and determined thing, informing Ra's that he was her father, and that meant it was his job to take her now. Impressed by her spirit and potential, he did take her in, bringing her back to the home base of the League.

She was raised there, among the members of the League. From the day she arrived, she trained in their arts, and from her first day, she showed incredible promise. She served quietly at her father's right hand, ever attentive, ever learning, ever obedient. She rose through the ranks of the League quickly, earning her place at her father's side. But discontent simmered.

As Talia's son grew, she saw hope for a male heir in her father's eyes, and saw the threat to her own place. She tried to use her sister against her father, tried to prove she was a worthy heir. And it all fell apart. In a last ditch effort at salvaging hope for the future, she fell at her father's side in the resulting chaos.

It worked. Well enough, at least. She awoke some months later, and resumed her work on her father's behalf, taking a longer view on her plans.

With her sister and her nephew taking up residence in the tri-cities, she convinced her father to let her travel there as well to monitor their activities. Whether she convinced him or he decided it was better to have her there than at the center of the League is less than certain.

Character Details

Nyssa is a warrior, through and through. She lives (and occasionally dies) by the tenants of the League, which is her entire life. While she may not always agree with her father, she believes in the League. She is practical, organized, and ruthless. But she truly believes that the League is preserving justice and making the world a better place at the same time. Whatever she does, she plans for all contingencies and then commits herself completely.
