Lady Falcon (real name Vanessa "V" Nightingale, born February 7, 1997) is the former protégé of Falcon Man, and one of the founding members of the Team. She is the daughter of Falcon Man and the Panthera, younger sister of the Pheonix, older sister of Lynx and Falcon Boy.
According to her mother, just like her father, V's personality is "chocolate and vanilla". She's one of the most responsible and mature members of the Team, but can be childish and silly when it's necessary. She also has her mother's wit, intelligence, sarcastic attitude, cunning nature, and can be naturally good with children. Just like her mother, she's naturally good at flirting, usually using that skill to her advantage. According to Kid Flash, she is a technological genius, being able to build or fix any complicated machine or device (like when she fixes her equipment, or invents and builds brand new devices). She has a lot of superhero idols, like Wonder Woman, Captain Firestone, and even her own father, Falcon Man. She is also very into art and drawing, saying she wants to become a designer in the future. She also has a not-so-secret passion for music and singing. She is selfless when it comes to her superhero duties, and tries her best to ensure that everyone she saves is alive and well. Because of her childhood trauma (the disappearance her best friend when she was 7), she always feels the need to protect her loved ones, and is even willing to risk her life for them, fearing she would lose them. Also, because of her guilt of witnessing the death of Dick's parents and doing nothing to prevent the unfortunate event, she constantly feels the need to help him in any way she can (which was strongly shown in the episode, "Performance"). She has strong romantic feelings for him (which she constantly denied until they finally became a couple), and usually depends on him for emotional support. However, she also has kind of an arrogant and cocky side, shown by her constant bragging whenever she wins a fight or competition, and how she hates losing. She is also known to be extremely short-tempered, hot-headed, and prideful. She hates when guys call her "babe" (except Dick).

Early life Edit
Vanessa "V" Nightingale is the daughter of the superhero/music producer, Falcon Man (Roger Nightingale), and his wife, superhero/former super-villain/former archaeologist/magazine journalist, the Panthera (Jasmine Faye Nightingale). She was born on February 7, 1997, in the city of Conch Coast, New Jersey. When she was 3 years old, at daycare she noticed a girl her age is being bullied by a group of older boys, in or
der to defend her, she grabbed a bunch of stones, and slingshot them right at the boys, and pushed them into the mud, causing them to run away out of fear of her. The girl was extremely grateful, because it was the first time anybody in the daycare ever showed her kindness, so she called V her "superhero", and introduced herself as Cadence Harmony. Thus, their friendship began, marking it by making each other friendship necklaces. They where best friends/"partner-in-crime-during-pranks" for for 5 years, not letting anyone else become their friend, until Christmas Eve of 2004. That was the day when Falcon Man finally decided to train her as his protégé. After the exciting news were revealed, she ran to her friend's house to tell her (since they promised they will always tell each other everything), but when she got there, she found Cadence's house to be exploded and on fire. Cadence's parents were found lying dead, and their daughter is nowhere to be found. It was revealed by the police that the cause of the fire was the Joker, causing V to fall into deep depression and she started to fight villains alongside her father out of hatred. After a year, she was able to get over her depression with the help of her mother and leopard nanny Lucy, despite Cadence still being missing. They were able to convince her that she has to keep on living her life, for the sake of everyone around her, including her one-year-old little sister, Bianca. For the next period of time as Lady Falcon, she fought criminals out of sense of sympathy rather than hatred. She vowed that she would never let somebody else suffer the pain of losing loved ones like she did, or let someone be pushed around like Cadence was by those bullies. She decided that if she can't be there for Cadence anymore, at least she can be there for people that deserve to be defended, just like she did for Cadence the first time they met. On April 1st, 2006, V and her family went to Gotham City to see Haly's Circus. Once the act of the "Flying Graysons" began, she, along with her family and Bruce Wayne witnessed the trapeze "accident" that took away the lives of the acrobats. She wanted to go and save them, but her father said they can't, because there are too many people around. After she witnessed the incident, she looked up to see the traumatized son of John and Mary Grayson, and immediately felt guilty for not being able to do anything to save his family. Later, she was able to convince her parents to come to the funeral, where she finally was able to talk to the boy. She learned that his name Richard "Dick" Grayson. She comforted him by telling him that he'll get better eventually, because she also knows what it's like to lose someone dear to her (Cadence). Then, she gave him her umbrella, noticing that he didn't have one to protect him from the rain. When the funeral ended, she left, shouting to Dick that they will meet again. For next few days, she a "brainstorming session". She suspected that the death of the Graysons wasn't an accident, and figured that Batman himself is probably going to investigate, since the crime happened in Gotham City. Not wanting Dick to suffer like she did, with the permission of her father, unbeknownst to her mother, she was able to track down Batman and followed him around, as Lady Falcon. She stayed completely out of his sight, investigating clues of her own, like the lose rope in the circus, interrogating criminals who had history with Tony Zucco, and finding Zucco's knife, checking it for fingerprints. She decided to only show herself when it's finally time to help Batman restrain Zucco, and then show the evidence she found to the police along with Batman's evidence. When Batman got captured by Zucco, she was going to get help, he noticed her and caught her as well. Eventually, a new young superhero named Robin shows up, frees Lady Falcon and Batman, and they all restrain Zucco together. After he was turned in, Lady Falcon apologized that she couldn't do much to help (and that she tried to include herself into the investigation without letting Batman know). Batman tells her that she did good work, but he can't promise that he won't tell her mother about the whole thing. She then get's a call from her mother, telling her to come home immediately, and bids Batman and Robin goodbye, telling Robin they'll meet again soon. That September, she got accepted into Gotham Academy. On her first day, she gets harassed by a group of jocks. In response, she beat them up, knocking them out unconcious. She turns around to see Dick Grayson, who was watching the entire time. He greets her, calling her 'Fal'. And she retaliated by calling him 'Rob'. She asked him how he found out and he says it's because they look similar and fight in a similar fashion. In response, she tells him that she knew from the very start that Robin was him, because she couldn't think of anyone else who could become Batman's protege. They spent the entire school day together (because they had the same classes), and that became the start of a new friendship. She also later befriends Barbara Gordon and many other students at the academy. Later, at age 12, she went to Amazonian Heroine Summer Training Camp (which was led by Wonder Woman) during her summer vacation, where she met Krimson Rouge, Chameleon Girl, and Frostbyte, whom she befriends. According to Krimson, at one point at the camp, she challenged Wonder Woman to a one-on-one fight and lost.

Background in other media Edit
- In some of the other DC universe versions (like the new 52 version), rather than being the love interest of Dick Grayson, Lady Falcon was the love interest of Garfield Logan (Beast Boy).
- Despite being different ages in different versions, Lady Falcon is always born on the same day (February 7th), but not in the same year.
- Despite being in the original comics, Lady Falcon didn't make an official TV appearance, until the Teen Titans TV series, where she was part of the main cast. Batman: The Brave and the Bold was her second TV appearance, making Young Justice her third, and Justice League vs. Teen Titans her fourth. Also, despite being part of the main cast cast in the Teen Titans TV series, she never appeared in the Teens Titans Go! reboot (the reason being that her official creator refused to have her "ridiculed" like the others).
