Councilwoman Noctua, a member of the Court, rises to power in Gotham City and implants a set of laws and regulations that ban Robin paraphernalia and will imprison those caught possessing or wearing anything Robin-related.
All the Robins apart from Grayson are imprisoned and the Court tries to force Tim and Jason to fight each other to the death. This fails and all the Robins escape imprisonment.
Damian finds Lincoln March who blackmails the former, implanting an explosive device within Damian.
In order to spare the other Robins, Damian agrees to become the Court of Owls 'Gray Son' and leads a group of Talons to prevent the Robins from interfering. Dick Grayson confronts Lincoln March, who reveals that the whole event was a ruse to bring Grayson to him and for the former to accept his destiny as the 'Gray Son'. Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information. September In the new Nightwing series, Lincoln March addresses the Parliament of Owls as they decide to cast aside their connection to the Court of Owls in Gotham and don black owl masks.
As March begins to preach his new role in the Parliament, he is killed by Raptor, who reveals that both he and the Parliament agree that March's own desires began to become a hindrance to them and they needed a clean path to Nightwing. He willingly works for the Parliament in order to bring them down from the inside; they are wary of and suspect Grayson's true intentions, but they do not know that their leverage over him has been resolved.
To keep him in check, the Parliament partners him with Raptor to aid in his missions. Their judge states that the Court of Owls are not relocating to Kahndaq. Orchard — Built the Orchard Hotel in His son Benjamin Orchard ran away from home and joined Haly's Circus. Thurston Moody — A wealthy Gotham nobleman who is a potential member of the Court of Owls in the s. Sebastian Clark — Former Grandmaster of the Court. His father Erastus wrote a tell-all book on the Court, but was killed along with everyone who had any connection to the book, which he had published in secret in another state.
Sebastian has what may be the only surviving copy. Sebastian escaped the Court when it came for his father and lived in Europe for years under an assumed identity. He then returned to Gotham and started selling security software of his own design to presumed members of the Court in an effort to uncover all he could about the Court so he could take it down. He befriended Calvin Rose and became his benefactor for a while, before Calvin realized he had been the Grandmaster of the Court.
It seems Sebastian was using Calvin in a power grab to take the Court's assets and, with the help of Bane, take Gotham City. His plan was thwarted by Calvin and Batman and he ended up in Blackgate Prison. A descendant of Bartholomew Wycliffe, one of the signers of Gotham's original charter. He was killed by Sebastian Clark. Talons[ edit ] The Talons are a breed of deadly assassins that are absolutely loyal to the Court of Owls. They remain "sleeping" deep within their inner sanctum until they are "called" upon.
The Court, seemingly obsessed with Greek mythology, began using electrum a highly conductive alloy of silver and gold with trace amounts of copper and other elements to treat their "retired" Talons.
Talons so revived appear to be unkillable, surviving knives through the skull, electrocution, losing a body part, falling from the height of a skyscraper etc. If exposed to extreme cold the revived Talons will shut down, entering a kind of stasis. The only means verified to kill a revived Talon is a poison developed by the Court. The Talons are highly trained and conditioned. They are extremely proficient with knives, and experts in hand-to-hand combat.
In order to remain undetected the Talons are masters of stealth and concealment.
Prior to the Night of the Owls the Court only had one active Talon at a time. The new Talon must prove himself worthy to wear that mantle by killing his predecessor in single combat in the Labyrinth.
Talons are to follow the Court's orders and serve until they are deemed unfit for service due to age or failure, at which point they face their chosen successor. Revived Talons can be returned to their former self with the help of the Lazarus Pit. Among the known Talons are: Uriah Boone — Uriah Boone was one of the oldest Talons, active at some point before Gotham became an industrialized city.
Centuries later, when the Batman confronted the Court about the Joker's supposed immortality, Uriah was hiding in the shadows, ready to defend the members and engaged the Batman in a fight. However, his sloppiness forced the court to retire him, stripping him of his weapons and armor with a mark of disgrace on his record.
Four of his knives were stolen by Catwoman centuries later. By sheer coincidence, the Penguin was in possession of the fifth knife which Catwoman had set her own sights on.
In the ensuing conflict, Catwoman saved the Penguin's life and promised the five knives back to the Talon preying on his need for redemption in the eyes of the Court of Owls. The Penguin shot him through the head before an exchange could be made, and so Catwoman — feeling as though she and the Talon were kindred spirits — laid his body on the roof of Gotham City Police Department with his five knives and turned on the Bat-Signal.
He remembered the Gotham City of as a violent place and saw the city's present the same way.
When he was unmasked, he already had the appearance of an old man. He seemingly regards women as "vermin", suggesting misogyny traits. The Birds of Prey managed to subdue him when Poison Ivy dragged him into a refrigerated train car meant for carrying meat. He was effective, but his killings lacked the subtlety the Court of the day felt was essential, and he was retired.
He is shown as a young strongman at Haly's Circus in He killed civilians the Court had not targeted for execution, as well as two Court members. In , he killed everyone in the Carpenter Home for Orphans and set the building on fire. He states that he killed as young as He is a complete psychopath and is physically huge, shown to be about ' tall and heavily muscled.
His teeth are pointed and his fingernails like claws. He is noted as being an expert tracker. The Court finally subdued and killed him, placing him in the Tomb of the Unworthy. He is revived out of desperation to kill Calvin Rose.
During their final confrontation he has his left arm severed, is cut in half, and beheaded. As one of the revived Talons he is basically unkillable, but before he could fully revive he was placed in a custom built cryo-facility. He was an acrobat of Chinese descent. In his time, he was sent to assassinate Thurston Moody, the former deputy head of Gotham Sanitation, who was a member of a terrorist group called the August 7. Nathaniel is seen as a failure by his grandfather in particular, especially for having failed to sire an heir.
Nathaniel reveals that he chose not to sire an heir so his line would end and cease serving as Talons. Born on October 10, , William Cobb was the son of an ironworker and textile worker who lost his life while working on a bridge. This event robbed young William of his childhood, as he and mother struggled to survive afterwards. After an encounter with a man named Nathaniel, Cobb joined a circus, mastering the art of throwing knives and earning fame.
Cobb met and fell in love with Amelia Crowe, the daughter of Burton Crowe, which resulted in Amelia's pregnancy, but Burton disapproved and arranged for her to marry a second cousin. Through Nathaniel's efforts, Cobb joined the Court of Owls and became a Talon in order to make a difference in society.
Cobb kidnapped his infant son and gave the boy to Nathaniel, urging Nathaniel to release the child in secret and prepare him for the legacy as the Gray Son of Gotham. Cobb is disappointed to learn that Grayson, as Nightwing, is an ally of Batman, and faces his grandson in combat, in which Grayson is victorious.
He was from a poor African American farming family in Georgia. From a very young age Jonas had a love for animals, especially birds. His mother, however, after losing her mind killed all the pet chickens of Jonas with an axe in a fit of madness.
After the Spanish flu killed his family he ran away and was taken in by Haly's Circus. The Court of Owls took notice of the young boy, noting his fearlessness while training the dangerous animals. Jonas was however mentally unstable, carving a "feather" into his flesh after taking the life of a victim. He was seen to be proficient with blades and knives like most of the Talons but also carried an axe. His father made him a Talon as punishment for running away to join Haly's Circus, but only allowed him to serve for one year before having him killed.
He is revived for the Night of the Owls and guards the Orchard Hotel. It is unclear whether or not he survived the partial destruction of the hotel, but as a revived Talon he is nigh unkillable. She was horribly disfigured at a young age by a bomb attached to a balloon which was sent by Emperor Hirohito to cause panic in the United States during World War II. Mary is awakened and sent to coerce Commissioner Gordon into letting his police force handle the Night of the Owls ineffectively and into inadvertently lighting a modified Bat-Signal which fills the sky with the symbol of the Court of Owls, thereby killing hope that the Batman will save Gotham.
She faces Batgirl , but lets her go, because they both wear masks. Later, Catwoman broke Mary out of Blackgate Penitentiary, having been hired by a prominent member of the Court. When she realized his motivations, though, she turned on him, and with Batgirl, they defeated his Talons — including Mary, who turned on her master in the name of friendship with the two women.
In order to protect Mary, Catwoman faced the police alone, leaving Batgirl to get Mary out. Like every other Talon, Carver was a performer with Haly's Circus, but his fear of death prevented him from mastering the high-wire. Frustrated, the ringmaster forced him to overcome his fear by setting his trailer ablaze with him inside.
When he emerged, burned but alive, he was ready for the Court's training. Twenty-six years later, he had become one of the best Talons, but he had also become sloppy.
He was warned that if he continued to make mistakes, he would be replaced with a boy who had already been chosen to succeed him. On the night of the mission that was meant to redeem him, Carver could not help but go to see the one who would replace him. He saw Dick Grayson perform and knew that the boy would outmatch him.
