She is a genius, possessing extensive knowledge in numerous different fields of study, making her an adept leader, detective, computer scientist, linguist, and combatant. Even if she was not able to go off into the streets at night and fight crime during her teen years, Barbara made sure to help as much as she could from behind the scenes, by hacking computers, going off and taking pictures and making a database on all the people that she's gotten dirt from. Even though her early work lead her to some pretty seedy places, she has built an extensive network of contacts in Gotham's online world of hackers that have helped her in the past. Even if the police isn't willing to follow on a lead for fear or simply because they've been paid off, much to her father's frustration, she knows Batman won't hesitate and neither will she.

Empathy: Despite her intellect and desire to do justice, Barbara tries to understand why a criminal went down that road.

While she knows some criminals can't be helped, she tries her best to go easy on the ones who have no other choice.
She is trained in boxing, Dragon Style Kung Fu, Judo, stick fighting, and many more.
== Disadvantages ==
Highly stubborn: Once something or someone gets into Barbara's radar, she won't forget about it and she will go to great lengths, even if it means she will get hurt, to bring that person to justice.
Empathy: Her sense of empathy and understanding for criminals can sometimes be a double-edged sword. While it can work in her favor, sometimes criminals take advantage of her and manipulate her to get what they want or escape. She's gotten attacked quite a few times while she's doing her detective work out on the street at night.
Despite having received a lot of help from the online hacker community in the past, some information they have provided her with has lead her to awkward encounters and sometimes very dangerous situations she must pull herself out of before going in deeper.
Having a detective for a father, there's not much she can get away with when it comes to lying. Jim often grounded her when she was a teenager for going off on her own and doing the police's work.
== Background ==
Growing up in the Gordon household, there wasn't any day that went by that Barbara didn't hear her father complaining about how the police department and the detectives in the city were becoming more and more corrupt with each passing day. Even if she was just a kid, she was always curious about her father's work and often asked him questions about his job. Her father tried to sugarcoat it all the time, by simply explaining that there were bad police men and good police men in Gotham. Given her intellect, those excuses were never enough for her, though she would simply nod and change topics. After many conversations with her father concerning corruption and injustice in Gotham, a permanent invisible scar was left in her mind and the curiosity of how a good, righteous man could become a villainous monster became planted in her brain. Given her desires to once day become like her father, Barbara dropped out of ballet at a very young age and began attending self defense lessons after she heard her father talking about a woman who had been raped and killed near their home. Since she started out young, she proved to be good in different disciplines and became a black belt during her teen years in karate and then moved on to other disciplines.
During her teen years, Barbara began to grow tired of her father complaining about the corruption in Gotham's police department and justice system. She decided to put her hacking skills to the test and began building connections with other hackers who showered with tips or leads. Armed with a camera and the car her father gave her for her birthday, she would set out to chase after the leads provided by the community she often spoke to. Even if the leads sometimes turned to be erroneous or completely bogus, Barbara did manage to get some pretty decent information on some of Gotham's seediest criminals. Her "detective" work often put her in danger and she was forced to call her father once when her car was stolen during one of her investigations, which lead Jim to confiscate her camera and give her a serious lecture on safety and how she should leave the detective work to him.
Despite the fact that she no longer had a car or a camera, Barbara would make sure to contribute to justice in some way from behind the scenes. Under the screen name Oracle, she began feeding Gotham's Dark Knight with information. Knowing her father has a close relationship with Batman, she often follows her father to where they meet and listens to their conversations. Barbara wishes to do more than just hack computers and wait for someone else to do justice. In the past few months, Barbara has begun to chase petty criminals in Gotham wearing a home-made vigilante costume, consisting of light-weight leather pants, a black hoodie and a black mouthpiece so only her eyes are seen. She calls herself Oracle.
