Bette Kane is the heroine Hawkfire (formerly Flamebird), a cousin and student of Batwoman.

Batwoman

Bette trains with Batwoman, her cousin, under the identity of Plebe, the term used to describe freshmen at West Point.

After Batwoman's first, nearly-fatal encounter with La Llorona, she informs Bette that she will no longer be training her due to the dangers involved and Bette not taking things seriously. Angry, Bette later dons a spare Flamebird costume and heads out on a solo patrol, where she is badly beaten and gutted by the Hook. Cameron Chase soon finds her and delivers her to a hospital, but not before using her to determine Batwoman's real identity.

Bette remains in a coma for some time, and receives further therapy from Jacob Kane after she returns home. She later takes the identity of Hawkfire to assist Batwoman and Wonder Woman in defeating Medusa, and later helps recover Elizabeth Kane from the DEO.

She hangs up the Hawkfire uniform after getting ambushed by Wolf Spider during a patrol and getting some ribs broken, though she still assists Batwoman behind the scenes.

A Lonely Place of Living

Bette, visiting Kate in Gotham, discusses how much happier Kate is with the Bat-Family. She then goes on to say she wants to join The Team as Flamebird. Kate replies that if Bette manages to pass her second year Term End Exams at West Point better than the 99th percentile, she'll pass on a good word to Batman. Bette tries to argue, but Kate is called away by Batman. She orders Bette to stay put and out of costume. Bette agrees reluctantly.[1]
