    Deathstroke (Slade Wilson)
Click for Civilian Look 

Slade Wilson must have had a bad childhood as he lied about his age to join the military just to get away from his father. After proving himself on the battlefield in the Vietnam War, Slade was enrolled in officer training, where he excelled. There he met Adeline Kane. Adeline was amazed at how skilled Slade was at adapting to modern conventions of warfare and the two fell in love. But Slade’s first love was still the military.

Around the time that Adeline discovered she was pregnant, Slade was selected to be a test subject for an experiment designed to create Metahuman supersoldiers. This left him with enhanced physical and mental abilities as well as a healing factor. Further, because of this, Slade was denied reassignment and discharged from service. His severance consisted of pills that were meant to suppress his new metahuman abilities.

  • Abusive Parents: Slade is not the most loving father. He tortured and experimented on his daughter Rose by putting a cybernetic eye to spy on the Titans before she ripped off that eye.
  • Anti-Villain: Slade is a mercenary but he does have something of a fairly strong moral code.
  • Arch-Enemy: He and Dick Grayson are each other's most personal foes. Later on, Deathstroke seemed to have put his attention on the Titans as he was responsible for the apparent death of Terra and later kidnapped Rose Wilson, beating the living snot out of every member of team (including both Wonder Girl and Supergirl) in the process, by using his telepathic link with Rose to secretly learn all of their weaknesses. Naturally, this made him one of the Titans' biggest enemies and that grudge even carried over into later generations of the team.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Slade is this towards his son Joseph Wilson/Jericho and his daughter Rose Wilson/Ravager.
  • Badass Beard: Has one of these beneath the mask.
  • Blood Knight: One of the reasons he couldn't settle with a family is that he loved fighting too much.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Slade's the type of guy who would stab you in the back or shoot you in the head before you even knew what was happening.
  • Consummate Professional: He'll kill anyone he's paid to, and at times even is paid in advance simply to be sure he is willing to follow through on a job to uphold his professional reputation.
  • Deadpan Snarker: A noteworthy aspect of his personality since the beginning.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: While the feeling isn't mutual, he does care to a degree for his children. The reason Deathstroke abandoned H.I.V.E. is they tried to use his son Joey as leverage, but it backfired when he died.
  • Eyepatch of Power: He wears one over where used to be the right eye when he's unmasked.
  • Eye Scream: His ex-wife shot him in the eye. This is what made him get the hint he wasn't wanted anymore.
  • Handicapped Badass: You see how his mask only has one eyehole? That's because his ex-wife Adeline shot out the other eye. Doesn't slow him down.
  • Hired Gun: As a member of the League of Assassins' elite, Deathstroke is free to pursue side contracts so long as he is available when called upon by Ra's al Ghul or his daughters.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He's not quite as good at this as some other villains. Most of his targets tend to be damaged teenagers a generation or two younger than him, hardly the most challenging targets. When his powers of persuasion aren't enough to get them to work for him, he's not above using blackmail, death threats, mind controlling drugs, and Psycho Serum to force them to join him.
  • Multi-Melee Master: Slade is good with a gun, a master swordsman (and can dual wield if he needs to) and is very skilled with his multipurpose rod.
  • Older Than They Look: He's in his seventies, but thanks to his meta-gene, he remains in his prime.
  • Old Soldier: He joined the Army in the fifties and fought in Vietnam. Just now, though, he is a soldier of fortune.
  • Psycho Serum: The formula used in the military experiment left him a crippled wreck for months or years, with brief periods of increased strength and intelligence.
  • Red Baron: The Terminator.
  • The Strategist: Slade is the greatest strategist and tactician. Always calculating his opponents moves before hand; he has been compared to Batman in terms of tactical methods. Even against metahumans he has proven more than a match for them all at once with time to prepare.
  • Super Soldier: When in the army he took part in an experiment designed to create meta-human supersoldiers. He's slightly above maximum human physical ability and has a healing factor with inconsistent strength.
  • Undying Loyalty: Towards Talia. However Slade would later realized that the League, under Talia's leadership, was becoming increasingly like the H.I.V.E. Once she and El Penitente began to experiment his son Joey by poison him with an herbal concoction to feign MacGregor's Syndrome in order to have Slade agree to place Joey in cryogenic stasis and later a successful field test joining astral form to the brainwashed Shelly Gaynor, Slade demanded that Talia return his son. When Talia refused to surrender Joey, Slade broke ties with Talia.

    Jackal (Grant Wilson)
Click for Civilian Look 

The eldest child of Slade Wilson and Adeline Kane, older brother of Joey and Rose Wilson.

  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: Animal alias variant, since his costume doesn't resemble a jackal.
  • Badass Normal: He doesn't have any meta-human abilities unlike his father and siblings, only skill and lots of training.
  • Composite Character: Rather than becoming Ravager or the second Deathstroke, he has the same codename as lesser known characters that went by The Jackal.
  • Family Eye Resemblance: Has the same gray eyes as his father Slade.
  • Generation Xerox: Grant followed his father's footsteps by becoming a killer for hire.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: His face is covered by a silver Deathstroke helmet with two red eyes.
  • Older Than They Look: He's over 40 but thanks to his father's genes he looks in his twenties.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: He witnessed in horror when Damien Darhk slitted Joey's throat when he refused to spare him. Grant in fury rushed in, ready to kill, but Slade grabbed his son and threw him through a thick window before he himself jumped out. Grant was furious at his father, calling him a coward and demanding to know why he prevent him from attacking Damien and rest of H.I.V.E after they killed his brother. That is when Grant heard his father say "You were always a good brother to me, Grant. I couldn't let them kill you, too. I love you..." with Joey's voice before Slade's one eye changed color from green to its original brown. Later him and his father swore revenge on H.I.V.E, signing an exclusive contract with their enemies (and a past employer of Slade), Ra's al Ghul.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Grant is alive and is not killed when he was introduced and was just a motivation of Slade's contract after Grant performed said contract.

    William Wintergreen

Slade's close friend and godfather of his children, he essentially serves as Slade's assistant.

  • Ace Pilot: Wintergreen is an expert helicopter pilot.
  • Alliterative Name: William Wiintergreen.
  • Badass Mustache: Has one and is Slade's very own Battle Butler.
  • Battle Butler: While no longer that active, he still has some skill as a fighter.
  • The Conscience: He tries to be one for Deathstroke, with varying success.
  • Feeling Their Age: Even though he's been treated with Lazarus waters and is healthier than most men his age (or thirty years younger than his age), Wintergreen is showing signs of slowing down every day.
  • Honorary Uncle: For all of Slade's children, being their godfather.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Wintergreen is an excellent marksman, well-trained in the use of most modern weapons. He carries an old service pistol on him regularly as his weapon of choice but will often use sniper rifles to carry out missions or a custom combat shotgun to protect himself and his comrades if their safehouse is compromised.
  • The Leader: A skilled strategist and operational manager with considerable insight and experience, Wintergreen often assumes command of any support team he is assigned to.

    Lynx (Kitty Kumbata) 

    Mystic (Tatiana Forcier)
Click for Civilian Look 

  • Afro Asskicker: Has a prominent afro, and she's a member of the League of Assassins.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Her casual clothes reveal some well defined abs.
  • Aura Vision: Usually practicing this ability through tarot cards, Tatiana is able to interesting facts about a person's history, powers, and more. This ability requires Tatiana to have some sort of focus, whether it be the actual person present for her ritual, a possession that once belonged to them, or Tatiana having recently encountered them.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Tatiana is an exceptionally gifted fighter, though not as exceptional as many of the League's martial artists. Tatiana's style is a blend of Savate, Muay Thai, Capoeira, and Krav Maga.
  • Fortune Teller
  • Happily Married: With Monique Forcier.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • Tatiana has a knack for women's clothing sizes and is usually able to guess the exact clothing size for women with nothing more than a long glance. She also enjoys dressing friends up in clothing and tends to buy an excessive amount of clothing in all sizes just for the purpose of giving away clothing whenever she makes a new friend who is 'perfect' for these clothes or in need of a fashion makeover.
    • Tatiana enjoys pantomimes and actually thinks mimes are enjoyable entertainment. She tends to tip those with donation bowls quite handsomely and will watch them, as well as other street performers, for as long as she as has idle time.
    • Tatiana is a great dancer.
  • Ludd Was Right: Tatiana is a luddite. While she can do basic computer operation and has a smart phone, she refuses social media and buys her books in print. She also rarely has her phone actually on her person except when away from home.
  • Master of Illusion: By flooding the mind of others with false sensory data, Tatiana can create illusions or even implant false memories. While trapping a victim in a loop or static environment is easy and instantaneous, fashioining 'living' illusions requires a great deal of Tatiana's concentration.
  • The Mentally Disturbed: Not afraid to throw a punch or even cause debilitating injuries to those she needs to, Tatiana is however afraid of killing. The last time she killed someone, she slipped into a coma for thirteen months and awoke later to find that the ghost of the deceased was eternally bound to her. Supposedly her childhood cousin's ghost also haunts her.
  • Morality Pet: Tatiana is emotionally vulnerable due to her love of Monique Forcier, and to a lesser extent Monique's comrades Emma and Rina. If they are put in jeopardy, Tatiana could be blackmailed or forced to surrender herself. However, I advise caution with exploitation of this as Tatiana is a trained assassin with potent psychic abilities. You threaten someone she loves, she might be willing to risk another coma to know they are safe.
  • Official Couple: With Monique Forcier.
  • Psychic Block Defense: Tatiana can mask her presence and the use of her abilities from being detected by other telepaths and psychic entities. Se can extend these defenses to others around her as well.
  • Psychic Surgery: Through her psychic abilities, Tatiana is able to diagnose whatever ails a person's body by tapping into their subconscious and overriding their pain receptors to numb their pain. She can also merge her own aura with her patient, feeding their aura psychic energy or vital life force to sustain the patient and prevent them from death. While performing this feat, Tatiana is in a trance-like state as her mind taps into the skills and knowledge of the best surgeon or physician within hundreds of miles of her location.
  • Talking to Themself: Sometimes Tatiana can be heard talking to herself. In truth, she is talking to two wayward ghosts that haunt her. She has actually managed to make peace with them and is quite friendly with them. Both have been dead for a number of years, however and have little in the way of human personality except in the rare lucid moment so most of the time they are quiet and just linger around Tatiana apparently.
  • Tarot Motifs: She uses Major/Minor Arcana Tarot cards.
  • Telepath: Tatiana is a capable telepath and is considered a prodigy, even among the League of Assassins' most prominent telepathic minds. Tatiana has an incredible working knowledge of the average humanoid brain and the specific functions of each part.

    Prudence "Pru" Wood

    Silver Monkey 

    Mad Dog (Rex Cain) 
  • Cain and Abel: He's the Cain to Cassandra's Abel.
  • Composite Character: He's a combination of Pre and Post-Flashpoint Mad Dogs, being the adopted son of David Cain, making him Cassandra's adopted brother, and the name Rex.

    Jane Doe

Jane Doe is a cipher who obsessively learns her victims' personality and mannerisms, then kills them and assumes their identity by wearing their skin, eventually becoming that individual, even in her own mind.

  • Bald of Evil: Crossing with Bald Women but she has no hair and is very dangerous.
  • Depraved Bisexual: Jane has expressed interest in both men and women depending on who she's pretending to be at the time.
  • Face Stealer: This is how she can turn into another person. It's not entirely necessary for her abilities to work, but is much easier.

  • Genuine Human Hide: As mentioned above, she wears people's skins after killing them.
