Updating the Batgirl profiles on her database Oracle ponders Cassandra's past while she goes with Batman on his patrols. Barbara had some reservations about training her so soon, being only 17 years old. Batman had no problems with her and patiently waited for her to make sense of "who she was and who she is". He gave her free range of Gotham barring one rule; "No costume criminals."
David Cain meanwhile sat and watched old films of his daughter's training in an undisclosed location.

"Cain's an assassin, Barbara. He never taught her stick fighting. I did. Last week. Took five minutes."
