"I'm Safiyah's right hand. It's my job to tell her when there's a fox in the hen house."
—Tatiana to Alice[src]

Tatiana (died 2021) was an assassin and the second-in-command of the Many Arms of Death. She was ultimately killed by Beth Kane to protect Ocean from her; not knowing that Tatiana had already completed the assassination.

Biography

Early life

At some point, Tatiana met Safiyah Sohail and eventually became her second-in-command in Coryana, while secretly falling in love with her.[1]

Meeting Alice

Alice is taken to Coryana.

When Catherine Hamilton-Kane took out one of Coryana's defenses, Tatiana and several members of the Many Arms of Death were sent by Safiyah to attack one of Catherine's yachts to teach her a lesson. However, they found Beth Kane, also known as "Alice", onboard the yacht, wearing Catherine's clothes and drinking champagne. Alice attacked Tatiana and her men before she was captured and brought to Coryana. When Tatiana presented Alice to Safiyah, she wanted to kill her, but Safiyah, noticing Alice's rage towards Catherine and inspired by her determination to escape, decided to train her to be a soldier.

As Alice was trained in combat by Ocean, Tatiana noticed Safiyah falling in love with Alice as she shared with her the secret of Coryana's Desert Rose plant, making Tatiana feel jealous. One night, Tatiana witnessed Alice and Ocean making plans to leave Coryana with a Desert Rose before sharing a kiss. Tatiana informed Safiyah who then proceeded to have Alice's and Ocean's memories of each other erased while having Alice's conscience suppressed by Enigma. After that, Tatiana continued to harbor jealously and resentment towards Alice for being the object of Safiyah's affections and trying to leave Coryana with the Desert Rose.[2]

Framing Safiyah

Tatiana's note to Alice.

Because of Tatiana's jealousy of Alice, she had members of the Wonderland gang killed and left a note saying that Safiyah had done it.[3] Later, she sent a note to Alice which insinuated that Safiyah was responsible for the apparent death of Kate Kane when Kate's private jet exploded.[4] Tatiana wanted to make Alice hate Safiyah and stay distant from her; Tatiana miscalculated that Alice would seek revenge on Safiyah for the apparent premature death of her twin.[5]

Abducting Alice and Sophie Moore

"The Desert Rose was not meant for Gotham, and now your little stunt with that miracle cure has drawn Safiyah's wrath."
"Well, that was what I intended, so..."
"Stupid girl."
"My dear, sweet Tatiana, if you were sent here to kill me, my head would already be in your carry-on on the way back to Coryana."
"Safiyah will see you die for this.
"
—Tatiana and Alice[src]

Tatiana strikes Alice.

On January 31, 2021,[6] Tatiana ambushed Agent Sophie Moore as she was arresting Alice, forcing her to drop her weapon before knocking her out. After acknowledging that she needs to bring in Alice alive to Safiyah Sohail, Tatiana knocked out her as well.[1]

Confrontation in Coryana

Tatiana brought both Alice and Sophie to Coryana and alerted her queen when the women awakened. Tatiana was assigned to baby-sit Sophie while Safiyah met with Alice. All day long, Tatiana answered Sophie's questions about Alice, revealing that she disliked Alice because she took a flower of the Desert Rose from the island, violating Coryana's number one rule.

That night, when Sophie asked why she was there, Tatiana revealed that she wanted Sophie to promise that Alice could traverse Gotham City unfettered by law enforcement. When Sophie refused, Tatiana threatened to kill Sophie, starting a scuffle between the women. Just as Tatiana motioned to kill Sophie, Safiyah stopped the fight, commenting to Sophie that she liked Sophie's tenacity and her fighting skills because Sophie was handcuffed throughout the fight. Tatiana watched as Sophie and Alice were drugged into unconsciousness and dismissed from the island.[7]

Fooled by Alice

When Tatiana went to get Ocean's body, Alice hit her and tied her up, until they talked and made a deal. The two discussed the past of Ocean's and Beth's romantic relationship and how the two lost their memories and love for one another. Afterwards, Alice released Tatiana and she took her to Coryana.[2]

Getting caught

When they arrived on the island, they took the man's body to Safiyah. When Safiyah's men capture Batwoman and take her to them, she reveals that is not Ocean, so Safiyah takes his face off and finds out the truth. Later, Tatiana held Sophie and Jacob Kane in the cells on the island. She revealed to Sophie that Safiyah needs her to join the Many Arms of Death, as she claims they and the Crows are equally dangerous. Eventually, Sophie and Jacob manage to trick Tatiana and manage to escape.

Tatiana witnessed as Safiyah removed her knife from real Ocean's chest and explained to him, now revived, that the knife was dipped in a potion that placed people in suspended animation. Then, Safiyah turned to Tatiana. She realized that Tatiana had framed her for massacring the Wonderland gang and for being responsible for the apparent death of Kate Kane, in order to make Alice hate Safiyah and stay distant from her. She proceeded to stab her with her knife and said to Ocean that she'll only remove it when she has forgiven her.[5]

Return to Gotham and death

Finally, Safiyah has forgiven Tatiana and they go to Gotham.

Tatiana attacks a man as he runs from her to his car. Batwoman arrives just as Tatiana stabs the man with her sword and the two fight. Tatiana flees, but Batwoman does not pursue because she takes the man to get medical attention. Tatiana then finds Ezra Castellanos, a blind man in witness protection and kills him. Batwoman appears again and, once again, the two fight before Tatiana flees.

Tatiana goes to the site that was once Crows Headquarters, captures Alice, and takes her to Safiyah. While Safiyah and Alice talk, Tatiana leaves and kills Ocean. When Alice arrives at the subway car she shares with Ocean, Tatiana attacks but is killed by Alice.[8]

Personality

Tatiana had proven to have some loyalty towards Safiyah Sohail. As an assassin, she was unflappable and cold as ice in the face of danger. She was one of Safiyah's most important henchwomen and still harbors feelings for her queen. Tatiana had displayed a hatred towards Beth Kane, not only for trying leave Coryana with the Desert Rose, but for being the object of Safiyah's affections as she was secretly in love with her queen.

Tatiana would deny having feelings for Safiyah by saying she was more concerned about the safety of Coryana, although Beth was intelligent enough to recognize that Tatiana was in love with the island's monarch. Tatiana openly displayed her hatred for Beth and even expresses her desire to kill her at every opportunity; but she did not know that Safiyah would not be pleased.
