She is a master martial artist and a highly trained and extremely dangerous assassin whose skills are known to be unmatched compared to the other martial art masters. She travels the globe, selecting many of her targets simply to test her skills.
Ranking amongst the best combatants in the world, Lady Shiva is one of the most feared fighters on Earth due to her level of skill, her reputation as a killer of martial art practitioners and her tendency to do as her whim fancies, but there were no known survivors.
While not necessarily an assassin, Lady Shiva is affiliated with Rā's al Ghūl's League of Assassins and sells her services as a mercenary when she is not pursuing her own interests. Although records of her are few and far between, it is known that Batman himself did.

Notes & TriviaEdit
- Lady Shiva first appeared in Richard Dragon, Kung-Fu Fighter #5 (January 1976).
- Lady Shiva's signature attack is the Leopard Blow; a Dim Mak nerve strike that can kill the victim instantly if executed correctly.
- When the Question (Vic Sage) once enquired on whether Shiva was better than Bruce Lee, Richard Dragon reveals that Shiva was actually a closet Bruce Lee fan.
- Shiva's reputation is such that even the rumor of her being in town is enough to make most martial artists nervous. Not even Batman is fond of facing her in a fight.
- As a personal indulgence, Shiva likes to attend and watch martial art tournaments; explaining that she likes "watching children at play".
- Shiva has attempted to corrupt Richard Dragon, Timothy Drake, Cassandra Cain, Bruce Wayne and Black Canary on separate occasions because she feels that their morals are holding them back from their true potential.
- Over the years, Shiva has amassed a group of followers who worship her as an incarnation of Shiva, the Hindu representation of the lord of destruction. While she pays them little attention, she occasionally uses them as lackeys or simply kills them when it suits her whims. Some of her followers have even created temples to honor her victories, one of which is in Gotham, which she later destroys. Shiva is also a part of the Brotherhood of the Monkey Fist, within which she holds the highest ranked title of "Paper Monkey".
- As a day job Shiva works as a professional killer/assassin. While she doesn't really care for it, she finds it useful for finding good opponents by luring heroes to protect her targets.
