Name: Annika North
Nickname: Anni, Ann
Season One: 14 Season Two:19
Birthday: May 27, 1996
Astrological Sign: Gemini
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Late 1995 two 18 year old, new adults found out that they were going to have a baby. Terrified for her education and dreams for the future, the mother, Mara Lance, planned to take a gap year between high school and university. Her boyfriend, Isaiah, who quickly became her fiance, offered to drop out of his current position in college to take care of their child while she continued her dreams.
In 1996 Mara gave birth to a blonde baby girl, whom she named Annika Beatrice North, later in the year, the couple was married quickly to avoid any questions about the baby they had. Isaiah kept his word and dropped out of college to become a stay at home dad. Caring for his daughter as well as he could. She was loved by her parents, they adored the little child they had.
In 2004,Annika started growing up and was in her second year of grade school. The little blonde was sat happily in her classroom, raising her hand to answer a question she was answered with gasps around the room. The 8 year old looked around curiously at the mixture of glances surrounding her. She slowly followed their gaze to her outstretched hand, which disappeared at her elbow.
This was not a good thing. Annika quickly ran out of the room, and even off the school grounds. Opting to tell her Aunt first. Dinah calms the frantic girl and once her hand looks like it’s attached, she drives Annika to her house to explain to her parents.
The now ecstatic Annika rushes to her parents to tell them all about her powers, to which their reactions are surprised at best. Convinced neither of them would have provided the gene for Invisibility, added with the science of superpowers being fairly primitive, the marriage between Annika’s parents begins to crumble. And to Annika, it was her fault.
Considering the fact that an entire class saw the use of Annika’s powers and that her mother had just finished her Temporary Post-Doctoral Position in Star Labs and was looking for a new job within her field. The North Family moved to the area with the best job offer for Mara, which happened to be Gotham City at Wayne Tech.
The quickly shattering marriage becomes more evident to Annika when she gets her Canary Cry. Her parents fought more often, and her father often stomped out of the house in an angry haze. Only to return to say goodnight to the children he raised but questioned the legitimacy of. Annika began resenting her powers. The young girl decided that her life would be considerably easier if she was normal. They wouldn’t of had to move, her parents would be happy, and she wouldn’t have to keep secrets from her friends.
In 2005 the young, deflated Annika approaches her Aunt and begs her to teach her how to use the powers she’s been hating for months. Hardly being able to hiccup without worrying about bursting someone’s eardrums. Dinah warily agrees, hoping to make Annika more comfortable with herself.
Annika and Dinah train with her powers for years, and in 2008 when Dinah becomes Black Canary, the now 11 year old Annika is convinced she is ready to help out. Dinah quickly shuts down her plans, stating that her sister would kill her if she brought Annika into this. The younger if the two pouts but decides it would be best if she was fully trained before she decided to do anything in regards to crime fighting.
So the two of them amp up her training. Dinah convinces herself that Annika merely wants to learn self-defence, but Annika quickly surpasses basic self-defence and continues further into her combat training.
In 2010 Annika is convinced that she is good enough to take on as many bad guys as there are in Gotham, and dismisses anyone who disagrees. She begins to plan her home-made costume and her first mission, sneaking on to one of Batman’s and Robin’s patrols.
The patrol went well, she used her invisibility to effectively follow them for a strong 3 minutes before Batman realised he and Robin were being followed. He quickly stopped her and sent her home, but Annika was stubborn and refused his attempt at keeping her safe. Annika, now dubbing herself Sparrow; continues joining their patrols until Batman decides to drop her off at the Gotham City Police Station after she gets slashed in the shoulder by a thug whilst trying to take things into her own hands.
Black Canary was called, as Batman puzzled together who she was related to decently close to meeting her. Black Canary lectured Annika about her technique and recklessness, pointing out that her parents didn’t even know she was away from her house. Annika narrowed her eyes and shot right back.
“You trained me for years, don’t you think I can handle it?!”
Dinah frowned and let out a deep breath. “Fine, get in the car. I have some kids I want you to meet.”
Season One - Annika is very abrasive in season one. She isn’t a fan of asking for help and is ridiculously reckless on the field. She’s very concerned about being considered weak, and will go to great lengths to prove that she isn’t. She get thoroughly annoyed with people who don’t feel similarly or people that tell her they’re concerned.
5 Year Time Gap - Annika is getting over her issues, slowly, but surely. It takes her a bit and she needs reminders to calm down and think things through. However her abrasive and rude attitude had calmed a bit leaving her with sarcastic and sassy remarks instead of constantly challenging those around her.
Season Two - Annika is nearly over her obsession to seem stronger than everyone else, and with it she gets better with her powers. She can be considered more motherly and caring than she was before, due to the younger team members and not being grouped into the role of ‘youngest member on the team’ with Robin. (She blames it on having younger siblings) However friendly she seems, she is still very determined and will do quite a bit to get what she wants. She’s still heavily sarcastic but tends to grin while saying it, hoping everyone is aware she’s kidding.
