History on Batman: The Animated Series

After marrying Victor Fries, a cryogenics researcher working for GothCorp, the couple lived happily until Nora was diagnose with a terminal illness. Fries used the company's equipment to cryogenically freeze his wife until a cure could be found. But GothCorp CEO Ferris Boyle cut the funding and later went into Fries's laboratory to shut down the project personally with some security guards. According to "Heart of Ice" and The Batman Adventures Holiday Special, Nora was presumed dead after the resulting scuffle that destroyed the lab. But Nora was still alive within her chamber, which was soon recovered by theme park mogul Grant Walker. Cryogenics is a branch of physics (or engineering) that studies the production of very low temperatures (below −150°C, −238°F or 123K) and the behavior of materials at those temperatures. ...


Victor, who had by then become Mr. Freeze, eventually found Nora's chamber again and kept it in his cave in the Arctic until Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero, when Nora's chamber was broken. No longer frozen, Nora did not have long to live. In desperation, Freeze bribed an old collegue into helping Nora. This led Freeze into hunting down Barbara Gordon, the closest woman they could find with Nora's rare blood type. Freeze planned to use Barbara for a fatal organ transplant that would save Nora until Batman intervened.

The web cartoon Gotham Girls also revealed that Nora had a younger sister named Dora. Dora was very close to Nora and hated Victor Fries for his attempts to preserve Nora's life instead of just letting her go, ignoring the fact that Victor's measures saved her sister's life. Dora's campaign against costumed vigilantes and villains resulted in her becoming one himself in the series finale of Gotham Girls.
