The Sisters of the League were a sub-group within the League of Shadows. They were made up of all women, and were formerly led by Ra's al Ghul. During Barbara Kean's temporary leadership, the Sisters gained respect for her after seeing her stand up to and fight against Ra’s. They later pledged their loyalty to Barbara; joining the Sirens. 

During No Man's Land, the majority of the Sisters of the League were presumably murdered by Nyssa al Ghul when she came to Gotham City in order to avenge her father Ra's al Ghul and punish the people responsible for his death.

History

Forming of the group

After understanding that the energy that Ra's al Ghul placed in her is a beacon to summon the rest of the League of Shadows to Gotham City, Barbara is confronted by it's members. One League of Shadows captain doubts that a woman can hold the title of "Ra's al Ghul" and tries to take it from her only for Barbara to kill him. When Barbara asks if they would still be loyal to her, most of it's members bow to her. Just then, the lights go off and gunfires are heard. When the lights come back on, the female members of the League of Shadows are revealed to have killed off the weaker ones as they pledge their loyalty to her.[1]

Serving Barbara

Lelia and the Sisters of the League take Barbara and Tabitha Galavan to one of the League of Shadows' hideouts where only Barbara is allowed into the vault. She sees a portrait of what looks like Ra's al Ghul and Barbara Kean causing her to accept her destiny. When Tabitha later comments about this and asks how this will affect their business, Barbara ends her partnership with Tabitha and has Leila and the Sisters of the League remove her. Outside, they beat up Tabitha as Leila states that they will kill her next time.[2]

During the aftermath of Ra's al Ghul's resurrection, the Sisters plead their loyalty to Barbara Kean, after facing Ra's and defending the league, separating themselves from Ra's and allowing Barbara to be there leader without the powers of The Demons Head.[3]

No Man's Land

During No Man's Land, the Sisters of the League still served Barbara and were the guards of the Sirens Club.[4] They aided Barbara in capturing Edward Nygma and interrogating him.[5]

The Sisters of the League were at the Sirens club when Barbara had invited the Street Demonz, Lo Boyz, Undead, Leopards and Soothsayers in order to negotiate. Penguin was also present during the gathering.[6]

Deaths

The Sirens Club was later attacked by Ra's al Ghul's daughter Nyssa al Ghul, who had come to Gotham City in order to avenge her father and punish the people responsible for his death. Since the Sisters of the League had betrayed Ra's al Ghul[7] and defected to Barbara, they were no longer part of the official League of Shadows. Nyssa brutally killed the majority of the Club's employees with the Dagger of King Balahsi, presumably including the majority of the Sisters of the League. Shortly after the massacre, Barbara Kean arrived at the Sirens along with her newborn daughter and Lee Thompkins. Nyssa attacked Lee and knocked her out, whereon she fell unconscious between what appeared to be the corpses of the Sisters of the League and other female employees on the floor.[8] Barbara herself along with her daughter were then kidnapped by Nyssa and taken to Gotham City Hall.[9]
