Barbara Gordon-Drake, codenamed Oracle, formerly Batgirl, is one of the tritagonists of the Batman: Arkham videogame series. She is also the titular main protagonist of the prequel DLC episode Batgirl: A Matter of Family, and the deuteragonist of the sequel DLC episode A Flip of a Coin.
She was voiced by Kimberly Brooks in Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, Kelsey Lansdowne in Batman: Arkham Origins, and Ashley Greene in Batman: Arkham Knight. Brooks also voiced Ashley Williams in the Mass Effect series, Luna in the Scooby-Doo series, and Bumblebee in DC Super Hero Girls. Lansdowne also voiced Rapunzel in Kingdom Hearts III and Disney Comics in Motion, as Greene famously played Alice Cullen in the Twilight Saga.
She is the daughter of Commissioner James Gordon who was forbidden from her overprotective father from joining the Gotham City Police Department. Instead, she became the heroic sidekick Batgirl and fought crime for years, until Joker shot her through the spine, ending her career as Batgirl but starting the career of Oracle. As Oracle, Barbara assisted Batman during his missions to stop his rogues gallery from causing mayhem across Gotham City.
Oracle now aids the Dark Knight with her computer expertise, providing Batman with a constant stream of information in the field to aid his war against crime. During the events at Christmas Eve, she first meets Batman in the GCPD building and manages to get him to eliminate Penguin's weapon caches.
During the events of Arkham Asylum, she provides Batman many information on the Island as well as using her hacking skills to hack into Dr. Young's Email and finds out by their dealings. Although during these events, Oracle wasn't capable of getting Killer Croc's lair on the map.
In Arkham City, she soon gets into contact into Batman after he defeats the waves of thugs in Penguin's Museum. She yet again provides the masked protector with information including details on Professor Hugo Strange's Protocol 10. After Joker's death and two weeks pass where's been missing, Oracle sends in Robin to find out what happened but becomes successful as the captured police are saved, Batman is saved and Harley Quinn has been defeated.
