Elizabeth "Beth" Kane, also known as Alice, is the main antagonist in the TV series Batwoman, appearing as the main antagonist of Season 1, a major antagonist turned protagonist in Season 2, and an anti-villain in Season 3.
She is the daughter of Jacob Kane and the late Gabi Kane, the twin sister/former archenemy of Kate Kane/Batwoman, the cousin of Bruce Wayne/Batman, and the best friend/"adoptive sister" of the late Jonathan Cartwright. She was the leader of the Wonderland Gang who was determined to destroy Gotham's sense of security. She is also a former associate of Safiyah Sohail and the current archenemy of Ryan Wilder/Batwoman.
She was portrayed by Rachel Skarsten.
Beth Kane was presumed dead in a car crash that killed her mother Gabi Kane. Beth was found by a man and his deformed son named Jonathan Cartwright (nicknamed Mouse). Jonathan’s father kept Beth hostage against her will, but eventually, she found a way to contact her father, Jacob. Jacob and Beth’s twin Kate arrived at the house, but Jonathan’s father had threatened to kill them, so Beth stayed silent when Kate called out for her. Jonathan was kind and wanted to be friends with Beth.
Years later, she resurfaced as the mysterious Alice and formed the Wonderland Gang. She formed a relationship with The Crows agent, Chuck Dodgson, and he became her right-hand man and second in command. Alice kidnapped Sophie Moore and tried to force her father to choose between her or the city. She was stopped Kate, who had taken up the mantle of Batwoman.
Alice later meet with Kate and toyed with her on whether or not she was Beth. Alice was apprehended but managed to escape and revealed she knew Kate was Batwoman. To get Dodgson back, who had been captured by Kate, Alice made a deal with her that she would not kill for twenty-four hours. Alice brown that promise after breaking into Jacob’s apartment and killing a crows agent that caught her. She then called Jacob while playing a song on a cello to taunt him. Alice saved Kate from Tommy Elliot.
Alice showed up where she was was supposedly buried with her mother, and blackmailed her stepmother Catherine Hamilton-Kane, demanding access to a powerful weapon that her company had developed. She gave her twenty-four hours or else she would tell Jacob how she faked Beth’s death. Catherine sent guys after Alice, but she captured then and chopped one of their fingers off to send Catherine a message that she wasn’t playing games.
Alice managed to find Dodgson and recur him. She then crafted skin off the rear ends of corpses and became known as the skin pirate. Kate tracked Alice down and captured her. She cuffed her and demanded to know what happened to her. She called their father, knowing he would trace the call as a way to force Alice’s hand. Alice convinces Kate to take her to a roadside diner as she recounted her tale to her. Kate, as drugged by the waiter, who was Mouse and Alice, took her to Mouse’s old house as she finished the rest of the story.
Jacob and Sophie tracked Alice down and wanted to know where Kate was. Alice snapped and went on a tirade about how he was always worried about Kate and threatened to stab herself through the arm. Jacob yelled at Alice to drop the knife and called her Beth. Jacob approached Alice and touched her face before she stabbed him through the chest and threatened to shoot him. Kate showed up with Mouse and threatened to shoot Mouse, but Alice said she doesn’t have it in her. When Sophie showed up and she did, Alice requested they let her, and Mouse go.
Before the accident, Beth was a happy and well-adjusted sweet young girl, though she had a problem with sharing. She and Kate were close and had their birthstones around their neck.
After the accident, Beth was emotionally abused by the man who found her and the man's mother who treated Beth like a servant. She was made to live in fear and this fear and abuses likely twisted her mind into becoming a cold-blooded and violent killer that could easily be confused for a sociopath.
As Alice, Beth is cold and ruthless. She has no problem killing others and been made jokes about killing them as well as joked about corpses. She is sadistic and delighted in causing other pains. She harbors some deep resentment towards her father for failing and giving up looking for her and sometimes, her emotional breakthrough. She also has a jaded view of other perspectives, she thought that after Catherine died and her father framed Kate would be happy after all the suffering that they unintentionally put the twins through, but while Kate was angry at both of them for what they did she didn't want anything bad to happen to them.
However later on in the show it is shown that despite all her flaws Alice really does love her family, in a deranged kind of way. While she did wanted revenge on Jacob, she was also willing to let her comfort her after her effects of fear gas, she was willing to search for Kate when she went missing and bonded with Mary after she became the new Poison Ivy. She also had a kind friendship with Mouse, albeit in a somewhat co-dependent way as he was the only friend she was allowed to have and vice-versa.
She is shown to have a clear fear of people leaving her, most notably when she was under the effects of the fear gas, when Kate and Jacob left her at Arkham Asylum and when she poisoned Mouse for making her choose between him and her vendetta. Her trauma most likely caused her to develop abandonment issues after being held hostage and alone in a cell her whole life, she also stated that didn't want Kate to give up on her despite her successful previous attempts to make Kate see that she is irredeemable, Alice at one point fantasized about having a normal life with her and is implied that she missed her when Kate went missing, suggesting that she might be grateful that Kate still cares about her, even when Alice drove her away.
All of this violence, murder, and chaos that she leaves in her wake might be her psyche's twisted way of a cry for help and wanting to reconnect and reunite with her family again.
