Born in Arkham Asylum and abandoned by her father - the most dangerous man in Gotham - Duela forged herself into a brutal fighter and skilled thief." And Robinson plays Carrie Kelley: "Fearless, idealistic and plucky as hell, Carrie talked her way into being Batman's unlikely sidekick. If there's a burning building or a person in need, she's the first to rush in. Just as long as she's home by curfew." (Deadline.com)

She is a rule-follower who knows how to work the system to get the best assignments. As a training agent, she is determined to instill conformity in her trainees - the way to survive and thrive is to fit in and get ahead." And Solis is Matthew Garza, "a 20-year veteran of the FBI who has been a true believer in the "Agency way" his whole career. A senior agent on the cusp of being promoted to a leadership role, Garza is tough, smart and filled with a little too much self-importance." (Deadline.com)
