The League of Shadows is a ancient and powerful secret organization of highly trained assassins led by Ra's al Ghul. Known members are Ra's al Ghul and Sensei.


The League of Shadows are revealed to have manipulated the Court of Owls into doing their bidding. Some of it's assassins attacked Fish Mooney, Oswald Cobblepot, Hugo Strange, Victor Fries, and Bridgit Pike at a slaughterhouse where Hugo Strange's earlier cures for Alice Tetch's poisonous blood was being held.

Most of the assassins there were killed by James Gordon which also ended with Fish Mooney accidentally getting killed. Other assassins from the League of Shadows were present at the Yuyan Building when Bruce Wayne first meets Ra's al Ghul.[1]
