For over 14 years, a mysterious cyborg woman known as Black Dahlia has been one of the top enforcers for the notorious Medici Mafia and personal bodyguard to its leader, Lorenzo Medici. She is sent on the mafia's most essential and gruesome missions when not protecting Medici.

Dahlia trains recruits for the mafia's Cirque des Cartes division and oversees the all-female assassin squad that utilizes hidden weapons like foot blades. Many years prior, Dahlia suffered grievous injuries from a Skullgirl attack. Thanks to Dr. Geiger and his Anti-Skullgirl Labs, her body was rebuilt and enhanced with an arsenal of projectile weapons, making Dahlia the first-ever ASG. However, her time in the Labs damaged her psyche, as she was once very different before becoming an assassin. Like Big Band, Dahlia was an early ASG agent in the Labs, years before the parasite experiments that created Peacock and Painwheel. She eventually defected and now utilizes her extensive training and weaponry for the mafia.

Recently, Dahlia was tasked with pursuing the Fishbone Gang after they stole the Life Gem. She dismembered and killed them, dumping the remains in Little Innsmouth's bay. Unbeknownst to Dahlia, one member - Nadia Fortune - had bonded with the Life Gem and survived the massacre.


Black Dahlia does not have any absolute allegiance to the Medici Mafia. She only acts as Lorenzo's advisor, so she has a justification to engage in violence continually. Dahlia has always been ruthless and aggressive, even before joining the mafia.


Black Dahlia employs an array of weaponry when fighting, such as a sword, firearm, and whip. She can morph her arms into blades to slice opponents or discharge energy blasts from her hands. Dahlia can also briefly teleport and generate illusions to disorient her enemies. Her diverse combat skills and supernatural abilities make Black Dahlia a formidable opponent.


Black Dahlia has an elegant figure with long hair and crimson eyes. She dresses in a black and red bodysuit bearing a skull symbol on the front. Her ensemble also includes a cape and gloves. Her ominous appearance reflects her role as a ruthless assassin.
