Biography

Original multiverse

Early life

Reagan was born in Gotham City to an English teacher and raised in conditions of great poverty alongside a sister, Margot.[1] In her childhood, she lived in a quiet neighborhood in a small, yet welcoming building of ten apartments. However, when a group of real estate moguls began buying these buildings to turn them into luxury penthouses, Reagan, her family, and all their neighbors were forcibly evicted.[2]

At a young age, Reagan openly came out as lesbian. As an adult, she started to work as a bartender.[3] After Margot began her criminal career as a thief, Reagan started to help her sister, acting as a "scout" on Margot's behalf for places and events she wanted to rob.[1]

Relationship with Kate

In late 2018, Reagan worked at Elliot Tower at the open bar for a party held by Tommy Elliot to self-celebrate him officially becoming richer than Bruce Wayne. However, she had a very strong dislike for Tommy and his manners.

Reagan meets Kate.

During the party, Reagan met Kate Kane and briefly introduced herself. The two women had a quick back-and-forth flirting session and, afterwards Reagan revealed to have eavesdropped on Kate's conversation with Tyler, in which she correctly deduced that he married Kate's ex-girlfriend, Sophie Moore, and doesn't know about it. Kate complimented her ability to "read people".

Reagan asks Kate out to dinner.

Later that night, after Tommy's terrorist attack and subsequent arrest, Reagan reunited with Kate in the hall of Elliot Tower. She asked Kate out to dinner, which the latter gladly accepted.[3]

Reagan and Kate share a moment of passion.

Afterwards, Reagan and Kate began dating. A few days later one morning, while laying in bed after spending the night together, they listened to Vesper Fairchild's radio talk show discuss Batwoman's absence on the site of Magpie's last robbery. Reagan admitted that she liked Batwoman despite thinking the vigilante might be "doing" Batman, to which Kate jokingly asked if Killer Croc told her that. Kate was then called away by Luke Fox for a work issue, but promised to make it up to Reagan, affectionately kissing her several times before leaving.

Reagan and Kate on a date in the city.

Later that day, Reagan and Kate made lunch plans together. As they walked through the city, Reagan told Kate about her childhood in Gotham and correctly guessed that Kate had returned to due to her ex-girlfriend. Reagan intended to take Kate to an Indian vegan restaurant owned by a friend of her mother. However, Kate was called again and invented an excuse to depart, asking for Reagan's forgiveness and for her to be Kate's date at a party in honor of the Museum of Antiquities's new exhibit, which she accepted.

Reagan went to the gala at 21:30, there she was reached by Kate, discovering that Sophie was also there and having a brief encounter with her. She however dismissed the situation and joked about how much embarrassing it was to meet Kate's ex, seeking to save the evening.

Reagan and Kate break up.

After Magpie stormed into the museum to steal the items, Kate fought her as Batwoman, while Reagan was forced to evacuate alongside all of the other visitors. Following the villainess' defeat, Reagan, having realized all of Kate's lies, asked her if there was something wrong, to which Kate admitted that she was not in the right place for an honest relationship. Understanding, Reagan then blessed Kate for the better before the two women broke up.[2]

Anti-Monitor Crisis

During the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Reagan as well as everyone in the multiverse except for the seven Paragons, was killed in an antimatter wave by the Anti-Monitor on December 10, 2019,[4] only to be restored a month later after the Paragons and the Spectre created a new universe.[5]

New multiverse

Reunited with Kate and betrayal

Over the following year, Reagan went to The Hold Up on several occasions, hoping to meet Kate, and also followed her real estate firm's activities.

Reagan is reunited with Kate.

One night in early 2020, while she was bartending at the Lookout, Reagan spotted Kate among the customers and they began chatting. Kate claimed was at Lookout in order to scope out the competition and Reagan offered her a specialty drink on the house. Reagan praised Kate's business endeavors before openly confessing that she missed and still had feelings for her, and wished that Kate fought harder for the two of them. Kate admitted that she missed Reagan too.

Reagan serves vodka to Mary Hamilton.

Kate then feigned a headache and went looking for Johnny Sabatino's office. A blackout was suddenly caused in the nightclub by Luke. Sometime later when the power came back on, Reagan continued serving the clubgoers. When Mary Hamilton arrived at the Lookout in order to help Kate, she passed by Reagan and asked for a vodka. Reagan commented that was her favorite drink.

Kate and Reagan reconcile.

Later that night after Sabatino and all the mobsters at his auction were arrested, Reagan approached Kate outside the nightclub. She noted how strange it was that every time Kate showed up, Batwoman was there as well. Kate revealed she was actually at the Lookout on a mission, as Batwoman had helped her steal a journal from the nightclub that belonged to Wayne Enterprises and was important to her.

Kate and Reagan sleep together again.

Reagan jokingly asked if Kate would be able to get her Batwoman's autograph, to which Kate suggested she could accompany her home instead. However, Reagan stated that she would rather have a drink at Kate's place, which the latter agreed to. The two went to Kate's penthouse and slept together, resuming their relationship.

Reagan talks with Margot.

Reagan then betrayed Kate by stealing the journal and fleeing before the morning. She later went to a square to meet up with her sister, Margot, and handed the journal over. However, Reagan declared she was abandoning her partnership with Magpie and walked off, furious at how Margot's actions costed her Kate's trust.[1]

Sometime after this, Reagan was accosted in a parking lot by a British blonde, who threatened her for the location of the journal at knifepoint. However, Reagan told her aggressor that she didn't know anything.

Kate storms in Reagan's motel room.

The following night, Reagan was hiding in a motel when the door to her room was suddenly kicked open by an enraged Kate demanding the journal. Shocked at how Kate found her, Reagan tried to apologize for her betrayal, but Kate was not in the mood to listen. Reagan then explained that she stole the journal for her sister Margot - whom Kate knew as Magpie - so the latter could buy her freedom from Arkham.

Reagan confesses the truth to Kate.

With these revelations, Reagan fully disclosed her family origin and previous job to her former girlfriend. Reagan insisted that she was honest about her feelings for Kate, and didn't know for whom Magpie worked due to never asking her sister about it. Finally, Reagan revealed that she already told everything to Kate's friend, the "blonde chick with a British accent", to which Kate was shocked since she didn't know about it.[6]

Personality

Reagan is a very outspoken, extremely direct woman while flirting, and honest regarding her feelings.[1] She is also quite inquisitive and has a tendency to study the people to whom she is speaking, always managing to "read" them and understand the truth behind their actions. Also, much like her sister, Reagan greatly despises the disparity between rich and poor in Gotham, once stating that people like Tommy Elliot just help fund the laws that are separating the city.[3] She is very sweet, kind, patient, and supportive, as demonstrated when Reagan amicably broke up with Kate Kane after the latter admitted that she was not in the right place for an honest relationship.[2]

Despite Reagan often being at odds with her sister, Margot, since the latter is far less sentimental, she loves Margot deeply, being very loyal and willing to do anything for her.[1]
