Black Dahlia's assassination skills allow her to easily control the battlefield. She excels at mid-range, with teleport and dash attack options for positioning as well as various traps, projectiles, and explosives to harass her foes. Her gun is her primary weapon, and using each of her unique Shot types effectively is key to her success. While she has few ways to mitigate damage or recover health, her moves provide many methods of disabling her enemies and bypassing their defenses, leaving them helpless against her fearsome arsenal.

Biography

Black Dahlia is the right-hand assassin of Lorenzo Medici, head of the mighty Medici crime syndicate that rules New Meridian from the shadows. A former agent of the Anti-Skullgirl Labs, Black Dahlia was mortally wounded decades ago in a confrontation with a Skullgirl and rebuilt with experimental cybernetic technology. The experience left her with an unquenchable thirst for blood and a fascination with the despair and suffering of others.

She betrayed her peers to fight as a hired hitwoman for whoever could keep her paid (and entertained). After Medici Tower is destroyed by the Skullgirl, Lorenzo sends Black Dahlia off on a killing spree to stop Marie and retrieve the stolen Life Gem from Ms. Fortune. However, Dahlia finds herself jaded with her employer and drawn to the forbidden thrills only the Skull Heart can provide…
