Gotham Season 2 Episode 20: Unleashed
Tabitha Galavan was said to be a version of Tigress, a name used by a long line of DC Comics villainesses. The first Tigress was created by Fred Guardineer in Action Comics #1 (1938). She was the primary villain of Zatara, the Golden Age Magician hero. He is known better today as Zatanna’s father. Both spoke their spells through a form of backwards talk. The second Tigress was Paula Brooks. Her first appearance was in Sensation Comics # 68 (Aug 1947) by Mort Meskin as the Huntress. She  fought against the Justice Society of America as a member of the Injustice Society. She at one point married the villain Sportsmaster. Post Crisis she was retconned as having been first known as Tigress. She, in this continuity, had been a member of the young Golden Age era super team the Young All-Stars. When she meets Sportsmaster, she has become a villain and calls herself Huntress. She and Sportsmaster called themselves Mr. and Mrs. Menace and fought the Golden Age Black Canary and the Golden Age Starman. Artemis Crock was the third Tigress. She is the daughter of Paula Brooks and Crusher Crock (Sportsmaster). She was introduced in Infinity Inc. #34 (Jan 1987) by Roy Thomas and Todd McFarlane. She originally went b the name Artemis then later became Tigress. A version of this character was seen as a hero on Young Justice the Animated series from 2010-2013. It is hard to say which version Tabitha is supposed to be based on.
