The whip is the signature weapon of Tabitha Galavan which she uses on many of her enemies.
When Richard Sionis refused Theo Galavan's offer to join The Maniax after being broken out of Arkham Asylum with other inmates, Tabitha attacked Sionis with the whip, causing him to be throttled and pulled to the ground. Tabitha then proceeded to stab him to death.
When Alfred Pennyworth attempted to locate Bruce Wayne (who had been kidnapped by Theo and the Order of St. Dumas) he came into confrontation with Tabitha at Theo's headquarters. When Alfred turned to leave, Tabitha attempted to attack him with the whip, but Alfred reacted quickly and grabbed the whip, much to Tabitha's shock. This led to a fight between them, and Alfred fled the scene.
When Tabitha began mentoring Selina Kyle, she allowed Selina to practice her whip. Selina was shown to be surprisingly effective in using it as it was only her first go.
