Barbara Gordon, daughter of police commissioner Gordon, was Batgirl for a while--which her family didn't know. Then the Joker, in an attempt to drive Commissioner Gordon insane during the events of Killing Joke, shot her through the spine--putting her permanently in a wheelchair.
She refused to give up the good fight and, unbeknownst to her father, continued assisting Batman as the computer hacker known as Oracle. She investigates, relays, and checks information for him. In Arkham Asylum, she continually provides Batman with information regarding events going on during Joker's takeover of the mental facility. In Arkham City, she fulfills much the same role.
Well above-average intelligence, now an experienced hacker and investigator, with extra resources and technology provided by Batman/Bruce Wayne.
Paralyzed from the waist down.
Her wheelchair is outfitted with plenty of computer/communications gear.
