Rachel Roth may seem like a typical goth teenager living with a single mother, but for the past few nights she has constantly been having dreams about a young circus performer and the death of his family. One day, a stranger, known as Acolyte, breaks into their house and makes Rachel's mother reveal to her that she is, in fact, not her birth mother. Before more can be explained, Acolyte kills Rachel's "mother" causing the girl to go on the run.

Dick Grayson has now left Batman and Gotham behind to make a new home for himself in Detroit, MI as a Detective by day and the crime fighting vigilante, Robin, by night. One night, Rachel is brought into the department. Dick is assigned to talk to her and is taken aback when she reveals that she knows about his tragic childhood. As Dick checks into Rachel's story about the death of her mother, a law enforcement imposter sneaks into the department and kidnaps Rachel, bringing her to Acolyte. Dick catches the getaway car leaving with Rachel inside and follows it.

Acolyte plans to kill Rachel in order to prevent the coming of her father. Suddenly a "new side" of Rachel emerges and kills him. Not knowing exactly what happened, Dick decides to take Rachel someplace safe until he can find out more about who she really is.

Meanwhile, a young woman by the name of Kory Anders wakes up in Austria with no memory of who she is. All she knows is that she has made some enemies along the way and everything seems to be tied to one individual: Rachel Roth.

Elsewhere, a green tiger steals a video game from a nearby store, and transforms into a teenage boy.


  • Bruce Wayne briefly appears in flashbacks portrayed by an unknown actor.
