Melisande was the wife of Ra's al Ghul around the end of World War II.

With him, she fostered Ra's godson Quinlan, who had been orphaned when his parents were on a mission in Nagasaki when the bomb was dropped. As Quinlan grew gloomier, Melisande pleaded to send him away, but Ra's would not have it.

Shortly after giving birth to Talia, she found Quinlan, snooping around a forbidden room with a prototype Lazarus Pit. Startled, the boy ran away, but in doing so, he pushed Melisande in the pit. Young Talia watched as she died instantly.
