Living in Bludhaven, Cassandra invites Onyx to train with her, during which the ex-assassin offers her some advice on possessing a secret identity. After obtaining a snitch to track Penguin's movements Alfred arrives to give Cassandra her new base of operations just as her new snitch announces the arrival of a special delivery for the Penguin in Bludhaven airport.
"Look. Onyx is my name. That is who I am. I never got a chance to be anybody else. Too stupid and too arrogant in my youth to cover my face and protect my name, my life. But you, baby girl, you got a face under that mask, a name behind that symbol, and if you're smart you'll get a life, too."
