Beth Kane was the daughter of Jacob and Gabi Kane, and the twin sister of Katherine Kane. Originally from Gotham City, the family moved to Brussels, Belgium, when Colonel Jacob Kane was transferred to NATO.
In Brussels, the Kane family became the victim of a terrorist kidnapping. Gabi, Elizabeth, and Katherine were abducted; their chaperone Sergeant Carol was killed. Though Colonel Kane led the rescue mission, Katherine was the only apparent survivor. Gabi was shot through the head, and Elizabeth also seemingly lost her life.
Religion of Crime
Elizabeth survived, but was mentally broken. Now part of the Religion of Crime, she styled herself as Alice, after the main character in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. She would only speak in quotes from that book. She quickly rose to power within the Religion of Crime, and was fast on her way of becoming the new High Priestess of Gotham City.
Pursuant to this, she kidnapped Colonel Kane, hoping his access to Fort Richards would allow her to acquire toxic gas. Colonel Kane recognized her as his long-lost daughter, but was too dumbstruck to do anything. In the ensuing fight with Batwoman (her sister Kate), she fell out of the plane into the river after stabbing Batwoman's extended hand with the words, "You have our father's eyes."
Later Batwoman tested her blood against that of Alice, to prove that she was in fact her sister Beth Kane. Kate believed that Alice/Beth Kane was dead as a result of the fall from the plane, but the police never recovered Beth's body. In the aftermath of Alice's death, Kate continued fighting the Religion of Crime, finding them defending a strange sarcophagus.
