Catwoman is a masked thief for hire and a possible love interest to Bruce Wayne/Batman. Her public identity is Selina Kyle.
Not much is known about Selina Kyle before she became the Catwoman. She had operated in various different cities and was often hired anonymously by her clients. Shortly before the events of the game, she was hired by a client to break into Gotham City Hall and steal a data drive from the Mayor's office. She would then have to hand over it at a warehouse rendezvous point, where she had to show the client's men where the owner's of the warehouse held an "item of interest". It is possible that Selina met District Attorney Harvey Dent before the events of the game and may have entered a brief relationship with him. However, she hid the fact that she was a thief from him.
Episode One: Realm of Shadows
NOTICE: The events described impacted by the player's decisions. This is only a brief summary of the events that take place. Decisions made and their impacts will be show either in italics if a single decision affects the subject of the article or tabs if both decisions affect it.
Batman first encountered Catwoman whilst he fought an attempted robbery in City Hall, first seeing her break into the mayor's safe. She stole the drive containing information about the Falcone criminal empire and escaped to the rooftops. However, upon arrival, she discovered Batman had already beaten her there. When he tried to get her to hand over what she's stolen, Catwoman refused and entered a fight with the vigilante. During it, Batman bruised her eye and she scratched his right cheek. After he successfully took the stolen drive away from her, Batman was shot by a cop. This gave Catwoman the opportunity to escape, though she was hit by one of his EMP mines before she can get to safety, causing her to fall. Batman caught her, though she escaped by stealing his grappling gun and using it to hitch a ride on a nearby monorail.
At some point the next day, she met up with Harvey, who showed her around Gotham. She excused her bruised eye as an injury from a mugging and met a number of people in Gotham, none of whom she took interest in. She and Harvey later arranged to meet up at the Café Triste, where the two would have drinks.
Upon arrival, she met Gotham Billionaire Bruce Wayne, who she recognized as Batman upon seeing the scratches she left on his right cheek. Whilst they conversed, she tried to cover up her knowledge of Bruce, even mentioning the "mugging" to him as if he didn't know. After Harvey left to arrange damage control for the recent accusations of the Wayne family's ties to Carmine Falcone, she and Bruce finally talked, both aware of the other's identity.
She wondered why Bruce committed his actions as Batman, especially with how wealthy he was, and wondered how Harvey had not found out yet. However, Selina promised not to reveal his secret in the café, for the time being. She demanded that Bruce gave back the drive, so that she wouldn't suffer dire consequences. Bruce refused, but offered to track down Selina's employers to reduce the consequences. Seeing that she would be "screwed" anyway, she gave him the address that she was meant to meet up with them. As he left, she reminded him to change his suit.
Episode Two: Children of Arkham
Selina was later messaged by Bruce, asking to meet up. She suggested to meet at a bar in Lower Gotham, known as the Stacked Deck. There, she saw him talking with another patron, Frank, who had either recognized Bruce from the news or had been disrupted during a game of pool. Buying a couple of drinks, Bruce informed her that her employer was actually "the Penguin" and that he was now planning to kill her, following her failure to collect Hill's data on Falcone and show up at the docks. Selina also flirted with Bruce, commenting that her relationship with Harvey was not serious and that she was "[saving herself for another guy]".
A couple of moments later, a group of men working for Penguin arrived at the bar. Locating Selina and Bruce, the two entered a scuffle with them and managed to knock out their opponents. Upon hearing sirens, they fled into the alley to hide from cops who had arrived on the scene. Bruce has the option of trying to kiss Selina, but she will rebuke this. As she fled the scene, Bruce gave some parting words, before she ascended the wall with her "catclaw".
Selina, as the Catwoman, later arrived at the old Monarch theater, deciding to repay Batman for the tip off by helping him defeat Penguin and a group of mercenaries under his control. Her appearance shocked Lt. Gordon, though Batman managed to clam the latter down. Catwoman tried to talk about what had happened at the bar, but they were called away when Gordon couldn't get in contact with his men. They entered the Monarch theater, defeating a small group of the mercenaries and some hostages. They also witnessed Lady Arkham's first public appearance, addressing the people of Gotham to fight against the elite of Gotham.
As they sunk above the rafters of the main room, they witnessed the Children of Arkham (the group Penguin led) release a video of Thomas Wayne and Hamilton Hill committing Penguin's mother to Arkham Asylum. As the GCPD attempted to storm the theater, Batman intervened whilst Catwoman only helped when Penguin took Harvey hostage. As he shot blindly at the two, one of the bullets hit Selina, making her open to attack from his men. However, at the same time, Penguin prepared to attack Harvey with a light fixture. Batman is torn between which of the two to save.
Batman chooses to save Harvey from the Penguin, leaving Catwoman open to attack from Children of Arkham mercenaries. Though he manages to save her at the last minute, she flees from the scene and lays low for a while.
Batman chooses to save Selina. She shows her gratitude to him, but Harvey is disfigured by Penguin. Following the attack, Selina stays the night at Wayne Manor, briefly sharing a moment with Bruce as he checks on her.
Episode Three: New World Order
The following week after the debate, Selina will accompany Bruce on a visit to Harvey, if he saved her instead of the later. She will wonder why Bruce chose her over his friend, which he can respond to by clarifying that he needs her help, reveal his feelings to her or keep quiet and not give a reason. However, before they can go in, Selina will leave, as she feels responsible for his condition. She will also ask Bruce not to tell Harvey about her visit, something he can agree to or not.
At some point, either between after the debate or during the events of this episode, Selina was contacted by the Children of Arkham and asked to steal a chemical component for the group. She agreed, either through force or willing alliance. Shortly after doing so, she met up with Lady Arkham and a number of members, taking one of the Skyrails to the depot, where they were preparing for another attack.
As she took the chemical to the chemical engineering area, Arkham took her hostage and held a syringe of the Arkham Drug to her neck, threatening Batman that she would inject her if he did not surrender. Realizing that she might have been followed, Selina tried to negotiate her release, only for Batman to reveal himself. Depending on dialogue chosen, Batman will try to call Lady Arkham's bluff, surrender or knock the syringe out of her hand with a Batarang, allowing Catwoman the chance to attack. She will break from her grasp regardless of the option, but scold him for performing the two former options or will thank him if the latter is chosen.
Following her release, Catwoman helped the vigilante battle the Children of Arkham mercenaries. When Batman was at Lady Arkham's mercy, she leant him one of her catclaws to allow him gain the edge in their fight. Catwoman would also save him after he was severely electrocuted, catching him as he fell to the ground. The two then escaped the depot as Lady Arkham and her mercenaries either fled or looked for them.
Episode Four: Guardian of Gotham
To be added
Episode Five: City of Light
Catwoman's character can change, depending on the decisions the player makes.
As Catwoman, Selina wore a skin-tight leather suit, which covered her body, aside from her face. The headpiece was also stylized in a similar fashion to a cat, complete with two "cat ears". She wore large red-tinted goggles, which would disguise herself and possibly protect her from harsher elements, such as wind or bright lights. The Catwoman suit also had various pouches, where she would store her tools and items. Her gloves had sharp razors, which she would use in combat to scratch her opponents.
Catwoman used a customized bullwhip in her activities. This was often used in combat, often to trip enemies or pull them towards her. The whip seemed also able to hold her weight, as she would swing on it from one area to another.
The Catclaw was a gadget capable of latching onto objects and pulling Catwoman up on surface, often to ascend walls or slow down her falls. When observed, Batman commented that the device used magnets strong enough to hold a person's weight, including his own. Catwoman would often use it on metal surfaces, as it seemed to work best on these. Batman can steal one of these from her apartment, something which she will bring up when she steals the skeleton key prototype from Wayne Enterprises.
Selina's relationship with Batman can be determined by the player. However, when the first meet, they were antagonistic towards each other, as he interfered with one of "her jobs". Upon discovering that he was Bruce Wayne, she showed interest in his motivations for putting on the suit. However, seeing that he was main reason why she had not collected the drive from the Mayor's office, she would still act loathing towards him. However, after he helped fight off a group of Penguin thugs, their relationship improved significantly, to the point where she helped free hostages at the Monarch Theater.
Later, after they encounter each other at one of Gotham's Sky Train depots, Selina saves Bruce's life and takes him to her apartment to recover. She can attempt to seduce him and, should the player choose to, they will spend the night together. However, this will damage both of their relationships with Harvey Dent. If Bruce saved Selina in episode 2, he has the option of kissing her when she wakes up. If Bruce saved Harvey instead, Selina will express how she enjoyed the night, but only saw it as a one night stand.
At the end of the Season, it is revealed that Selina was only getting close to Bruce in order to steal some technology from Wayne Enterprises. When Bruce catches up to her, she gives him back the device and they share a last conversation. The player can act express distrust to Selina, or speak in a civil manner. Whilst Selina states that she is no more than a thief, the player has the option of either agreeing that she is a thief or disagreeing with her stating that she hero. Should the latter be picked, Bruce can either express his feelings that he loves her (where then she will leave and comment he is like others), express gratitude for saving his life or express the fact that they work well together as team. If one of the latter 2 are picked, their relationship can further be improved as the player has the option of kissing her goodbye (only if the player slept with her) where then a postcard will be sent to Bruce later on in the episode. Should Bruce agree that she is a thief, Selina will leave and comment he is similar to others, as she predicted. Bruce will receive no postcard, which on the other hand, damages their relationship
Oswald "Oz" Cobblepot/Penguin
Penguin anonymously hired Selina to steal information of Falcone's activities from the Mayor's office and to show Children of Arkham mercenaries the containment's for the psychogenic chemical that drove his mother and others insane. However, after she failed to retrieve the data and to turn up at the rendezvous point, their working relationship fell apart, prompting Oswald to place a bounty on her head. If Selina had known he had hired her, she may have never agreed, as she was fully aware of "the Penguin's" activities in the UK.
Lady Arkham & The Children of Arkham
Selina briefly joined forces with the Children of Arkham, possibly through alliance with the Penguin. She stole a chemical component used to make the group's psychogenic weapon. However, when Lady Arkham used her as bait to lure Batman out, she quickly turned on them and helped the vigilante escape, after he was critically wounded
