We Are The Birds of Prey! (Concluded)


--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

Oracle had been patient...

She'd been patient with Batman when it came to rebuilding Gotham.

She'd been patient with the League who'd been using her to run communications for the slew of newly powered people in the world.

She'd even been patient with certain ex lovers in her life... But one thing she was NOT going to be patient on any longer was her group, the Birds of Prey. They served a specific place in the hierarchy of hero and villain groups, and she had an idea to put together a new Birds of Prey Group. Birds of Prey-West Coast.

The files on her computer were a who's who of women heroes:

Vixen- Member of Justice League, hero with animal powers which may well be unlimited.

Karate Princess- Young martial artist with abilities to manipulate chi energies, trained by the martial arts master from the future Karate Kid, also has a very interesting lineage...

Project Darkchylde...- This was the Wildcard. She was an assassin for hire, a murderer by all intents and purposes from all she'd seen, but the woman's skills were undeniable...

The Black Bat- A former Batgirl. Probably the most skilled martial artist in the world bar none. Dinah was beaten by her several times in the past, even Shiva couldn't stand to her. She even beat Bruce, and yet she is highly unstable...


“That should do it...” She said and would begin sending out signals to each one. She knew Dinah would be PISSED she went ahead with the West Coast initiative, but this was important... The current Birds simply were too busy and there was SO MUCH work to do, this had to be done.

“Sorry Dinah, i'll buy you dinner later.” she said before contacting her as well.

“Dinah. I need you at the tower. The West Coast Initiative is a go, I want your opinion on this group.”

** Alley in Gotham **

Dinah was in a fight for her life, in an alley, in Gotham, that no one would ever think to check. If she died there, no one would know for days. She felt so stupid, as she thought she could take on Falcone's men on her own... no backup. It was a trap, and she didn't realize it, till she made the move.

"Gaaaaah! Really? Now?" Dinah ducked a punch from one man, and then kicked the other in the head. He fell down, and two more ran at her. One had a bat and the other a knife. "At least they are trying to be quiet about it?" She said, as she kicked the bat, and made it slam into the man's head. She then leapt into the wall, did a suicide flip off of it, and ended up behind the knife guy. "Bad move." She said, as he slammed his knife into the wall, trying to hit her. She then kicked him in the balls, and then in the face. He went down hard.

She had taken out four now, and two more pulled guns. "!@#$." she said, as they fired on her. She managed to roll out of the way, before they fired. So they shot up a wall, before she threw a knife in one mans hand, and then the other she hit his arm. It caused him to turn around and shoot the other in the head.

Dinah was still ducking, and then she sighed. "Okay Oracle. Ignore the gunfire. You were right, it was a trap. Damn it, you were right... again." The last man ran to a van and then sped off. She looked around. "Oh and Oracle. Send in the cops here. I have a package for them... well five packages."

She zip-tied all the men to each other, and then cuffed the last one to a dumpster. After that was done, she got back to her motorcycle, and rode to the Bird's Nest. The base they called, home.

** Back at the Bird's Nest **

She walked inside, and expected to be scolded, but just took off her jacket. She had a cut in the left sleeve, and was bleeding in her shoulder. "So yeah, Babs. You were right. Just do me a favor." She sighed, "No I told you so's till morning."

She noticed the display was on and then saw the names. One that was of particular interest was... Black Bat. "You really think she can run a team? Do you remember what she did to me? To you? She is not who you want leading. Hell, put Vixen in charge or... I don't know... me." She blinked as she said that.

"What am I saying. With Power Girl in Seattle, I am needed in Metro more than I want. The Society keeps me busy, no matter how much I tell them I am retired from that." She finally sat down, and puled out a suture kit. "You mind? I would do this myself, but its the back of my shoulder. And now... we can talk." She smirked and then grabbed Bab's Chinese food. "Oooh, General Sau Chicken? You thought about me. Thanks. You are a doll." She took a bite.

"So you want Vixe, which I approve of. If you think you can get her from the JLA. I mean, did you talk to Batman about it?" She took another bite.

"Karate Princess. She is pretty good. A little odd though, and she is still learning. I fought her once, and she kept me on my toes. This is when she thought I was a villain. Don't ask. But she claims she can beat Supergirl. That is something I want to watch still."

Taking another bite, she continued.

"I don't know anything about Darkchylde. I just hope she is not another Rose Wilson. We know how that always turns out. But that leads us to Black Bat. Do I have to go into that more?"

Batgirl -

Holding a man that was fleeing from the police after a robbery that turned to two women shot, three police cruisers totaled and several thousand dollars in damage to the city by his shirt. Steph Brown aka Batgirl, was staring at the criminal and keeping him lifted over the edge of building. The look on her face seemed like she was mad, very mad. The look of fear in the man's face was clear as he had suffered through having been heavily beaten in the face and hung with a shattered kneecap and both his arms broken.

"Now. You want to try to fight anymore.. You're going to tell me where you stashed the cash or you go down.. permanently." She said as she started to hold the 180 lbs. man out over the edge. After the man screamed and begged to be put down she replied calmly. "You're ugly your mother dresses you you live in a basement watching reruns of Saturday morning cartoons about magical ponies and you play video games till dawn instead of getting a job Furthermore you smell like stale cheese fries and masterbation. Now, tell me where the stolen goods are."

Angry now, the man tries to use his on usable leg to kick at Batgirl and she sighs softly to just thrust her arms out and let go. Though as the man was falling she'd pull her grappling hook and with the famous expert Bat-family accuracy wrap it around the criminals legs and tied it off to the wall just before he hit the ground. At about the same time the police pulled up and Batgirl was leaving the scene. Landing on her bike she reved the engine and her tires screeched as she started down the road.

Over the coms she got a call from Oracle. "Oh Hey Babs, What? Birds of Prey? Yeah I thought they were done for.. What do you mean you want it back, Babs. Who's on the list? yeah.. uh huh.. okay.. WHAT?!?" Without warning she slammed on the brakes of her bike and slid to a stop. "WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'M OFF THE LIST?? WHO THE HELL IS BLACK BAT?!?! I've been busting my ASS to be on the team!! WHAT?? Don't tell me to keep calm and get back on the bike Babs! You legitimately just pulled me off the team for some !@#$ who kicked a couple of peoples asses. I don't give a damn if they beat up Shiva or effing SUPERMAN! You've yanked me because I'm just not her. I'm experienced, I've been in neck deep, I've had my struggles. Who the !@#$ is some !@#$ who only has a couple of spars under her belt??"

Screaming out she yanked off her helmet and threw it hard on the ground. Then dropping her earpiece she shouted at it. "Fine you want your stupid new Birds.. take em! get them shot and killed even! Just remember I've done more for this family than that stupid so called Black Bat has. And I've actually BEEN on the team. Have fun teaching that kung fu blowhard how to work as well with everyone as you know I have been!" With that she got onto her bike spun it around and peeled her tires out on the earpiece long enough to destroy and send it scattering out in a bunch of pieces before she shot off down the road.

“I know how you feel about her Cassandra,” She said looking to Dinah as the woman at her chinese food. “But we both know that she'-” she looked to her computer screen. Huntress still hadn't answered, but Steph did.

“Wait. You...” She leaned back in her chair and rubbed her face as Steph went on her rant about Black Bat and Karate Princess. She'd shake her head, staring at Dinah as the shouting was probably heard over the comms.

“The signal's dead. Ugh I SWEAR it's something about putting on that bat that makes them crazy!” She said. “She thinks I kicked her off the team? Where did I say that? It's not replacements its a damn new expansion to the team!”

She would lean into the keyboard now and begin to type, she WAS one of the premiere hackers in the world and computer wizard. “Tracking the bike.... gotcha!”

As Batgirl drove down the streets of Gotham the signs for adds would change to Oracle's “virtual” face, with a message written beneath it: “Come home Pronto”.

Every sign she passed would say that, her bike's view screen would say the same.

She then looked to Dinah. “You deal with her... I wonder if I was like that in the suit... anyhow. I wanted you, Huntress and Batgirl to go meet the new girls... As for Black Bat leading?” She massaged her temples and groaned. “I know you don't like her. She's not stable and she's a former assassin... But Bruce trusted her enough to take her under his wing and give her “the suit”, then we need to trust her. She left on bad terms... But whenever Bruce called she came. I kind of, sort of faked a message from Batman to get her here. I don't want her leading anything... not yet. I want Vixen to lead but she's too busy, Karate Princess, a new girl I been working with, basically prepping heh is too green, and you can't lead the Birds of Prey, West Coast Birds of Prey, and do your work with the Society all at once. Even YOU need a life. So im thinking field commander we can have her and Vixen co-lead. Unless you're there then we can put her in charge.” she would lean back and grab a box of chicken stir fry and grin at her.

“Give em the entire spiel about what we really are, then the ones who agree, bring them back here... I already worked with Bruce, we're building us another place on the west coast, but for now this will be it.”

Karate Princess

“1001... [sign in to see URL]...” the small comm unit Oracle had given her went off. She flipped up to her feet from doing her vertical push ups and smiled as she walked to the comm device.

“Hey Oracle.... No just working out!.... I know I know but I have [sign in to see URL] I can take a break from training.... Meet where? Back in Gotham? Alright...” With that she slid on her Karate Princess attire and then her Legion ring and walked out her dojo, locking the doors. Slowly her body would rise into the air and she'd take off, heading for Gotham.

They were to meet on a rooftop in downtown Gotham City. Oracle said she had something important to talk to them about. “Who's them?” she had asked, but the woman didn't answer.

“Guess we'll find out.”

Re: We Are The Birds of Prey! (Open RP)




Fashion Week in Gotham City was in full force, and as such supermodel Marie Jiwe McCabe was in town staying at her Gotham City highrise condo. At the moment though she was downtown at the Gotham City Expo center, where the massive fashion show was going to be held.

“Marie, this will look marvelous on you!” Her assistant said as the woman was backstage, preparing to walk down the catwalk for Victoria's Angels lingerie line. This was the pre-eminent show of the night, and she was one of the feature models. She slid on the giant angel wings as the make up artists finished their final touches on her face.


“Alright, ready.” One make up artist said.

“Yes girl, go out there and slay, yasss queen!” another said.

She chuckled and then exhaled, getting her model pose on, her eyes sensual, her lip,curled up just at the edges of her mouth, not enough to register as a smile, but enough to “seduce” and be “sensual”, as she was paid to do.


A few moments later...

“you killed it!” the designer said smiling widely at Marie and hugging her as she then posed for a quick picture.

“No problem, i'm just the walking hanger for your lingerie, you make ME look good.” She replied. Normal verbage between client and model, to ensure she continues to work, granted she was at a level where she didn't NEED to be as humble...

“Marie. You got a call.” her assistant said.

“Take a message Alex, I'm going to go home and get ready for the After Party.” she replied and was already slipping the wings off as well as the lingerie.

“No, its a SPECIAL call.”

With that she froze in place and sighed. “Alright. I'll take it.” She took the phone and talked and walked back to her private dressing room. “Hey Barbara, what's up?.... Yeah my show went great... you were watching? Ha I hope you three didn't laugh.... yeah I remember our conversation.... I can swing [sign in to see URL] Huntress be there?....good.. You know tonight was the after party to the biggest fashion show in the country right? Bruce Wayne will be there, so will Clark Kent. Hoping to get a few pictures of me in the Daily Planet...(she doesn't know Batman's secret identity at this point, she learns then eventually in the comics but atm she doesn't know). Alright I'll be there I know I owe you... right bye...” she sighed and finished slipping into her “Vixen” outfit then tossed her phone to her assistant.

She looked to the picture she kept in her private quarters, of her and her "League" friends. And the other of the "Women of the League"

“Damnit Dinah... alright go to the party for me, tell anyone who asks I had another job I had to get ready for.” the woman, Alex nodded and with that Vixen touched her totem, summoning the powers of a falcon then took to the skies heading for the meet up.


A few moments later...

She landed and saw Karate Princess there. She'd fought with the girl before, and things went “somewhat” good... but still. “Hey there girly, so you got the call too huh?” She said.

Now came the waiting game.

Dinah cringed, as she heard Stephanie on the comms. She looked at Babs. "The kid has a point. This was kinda sudden, if I am just hearing about it too. I mean, I do get it. West Coast could use some help. Hell, I could talk to Power Girl about it too. Not that I would invite her, but the fact that she knows Seattle and the issues there, would be a hell of an asset."

She smirked, as she saw that Babs had more food. "You totally knew I would steal your food, didn't you?" She hugged her friend. They had been through so much together, she considered Babs as more a sister than a friend.

"I will head out to the meeting place and see if I can keep these girls from killing each other." She then aged, while snatching a piece of chicken. "I will try and not kill Black Bat, but no promises." She headed out and took her bike, but also made a call on her comms.

"Hey Kara, I know this is way out of your way, but we have a small issue in Gotham. This is not Society business and this is not a task for your team. This is just about Birds of Prey, and that we are opening a chapter near your new home. West coast."

Kara was in the Seattle base and was looking over the crime reports, since JT broke the Syndicate, and got cops back on the streets. She sighed softly, "Did Babs put you up to this, Dinah?"

"No, it was all me. I know you two have a lot of bad blood, and look, I know that you two were the original Birds of Prey. I am not asking you to join the team or anything. I just want you to come to the meeting, so that you can tell them about Seattle and what is going on there now. And I am not ordering you. Like I said, it is just a favor to me."

Kara smiled, "You know I will not turn down a favor for you, Dinah. We have been thru to much to ignore how many times you saved my ass. Of course I will be there. Just tell me when."

"One hour, on top of the Gotham Knight's building. Try and be discreet. I don't want all of Gotham to know we are there."

"Please, you know me, Dinah. I will be there soon. I just need to take care of some things first."

Dinah smirked, "I forgot, you are able to get here in a few seconds."

"I am not Supergirl, Dinah. Give me a couple minutes." She laughed, as Dinah rode to the location.

Getting to the roof, she noted that Vixen and Karate Princess were there already. She was on comms though. "Come to the Gotham Knight's building, top, Batgirl. I will explain all this mess to you there." She was speaking to Stephanie.

She waved to the two that were there. "Just few more are arriving, and we can get to business." She smiled at Vixen and walked up to hug her. "Been too long." Then she whispered, "I heard that Black Cat is coming too. Do you think that is a good idea? I mean, being the things she has done. I am not in charge or anything, and it is your call, but... just remember who she is." Then she added, "Oh, and I invited Power Girl." She knew that would spin Vixen off, so she stepped away from her.

"Hey there Karate Princess. I hope you have been practicing." She smiled. "Oh and did you ever get that spar in with Supergirl? I have been curious how that turned out."

Seeing the billboards changing, Steph growled under her breath and tried to drive faster to get away from them. Though as the billboards Kept up she pulled the bike over and skid to a stop in front of a billboard as she shouted up at the sky. "FINE! CHRIST!" Stephs eye twitched as she then pulled out her spare earpiece and clicked it on. Once she slipped it into her ear she replied. "There... you don't have to hack every damned billboard in town. god..."

After that was said she heard what Dinah said and replied. "Cute Babs. Yeah you clearly think it's an overreaction. Just, Ughhh! No, we'll talk later about it. Going to the meeting sight." With that she cut her connection and peeled out once more, ridding with full speed until she reached the Parking lot of the Stadium. Once there she pulled in as she pressed a few buttons on a keypad. With that she lifted her grapple pistol and with the bike still rolling she launched herself to the roof of the building. The bikes devices then kicked in and it's cloaking device activated as it pulled itself to a safe spot and turned off.

Once she landed on the roof, Steph walked toward Dinah and crossed her arms as she spoke. "Yeah, what is it? What did Babs have to say that was so important?" With that said she looked toward KP and Vixen and nodded. "'sup. You two. welcome to the party."

She was outnumbered.

5 to 1. or so it seemed like she was outumbered. She was here in Gotham following a Triad lead all the way from Hong Kong because “he” asked. So once the Triad had surrounded her, she frowned, eyes narrowed at the men.

“this does not need to end in your death, so please leave, while you have time left...” She said in her strange sing song voice. The woman in the black costume with the gold Bat emblem emblazoned on her chest didn't make a motion, but in her head the fight already played out.

The first man charged forward, and one quick kick to his face sent him flying, the second came from behind, a quick backfist to the nose broke it and had him sprawling backwards. The third man swung a crowbar at her head, she caught it and flung it at the fourth guy, smacking him in the face while whipping her leg around to kick the third guy in the ribs, cracking three and doubling him over.

The fifth pulled a gun at point blank range.

“I killed a Bat!” He proudly proclaimed. She heard his exhale, the shifting of his trigger finger on the trigger, the soft “click” of the firing pin, and finally the explosion of the bullet.

She shifted her body slightly to the left then right, avoiding the bullets of the glock until she was right up in his face. He tried to fire again but she grabbed his wrist, twisting it and pointing the weapon at the ground before continuing the twist and breaking every bone in his wrist. She took the gun from the Triad member and slammed it into his face, knocking him out.

“This is Black Bat.” She said on the comm, leaving the information for Batman. “The Triad are here looking for a new area to move into. They are using the slew of heroes and powered [sign in to see URL] are allying with Carmine's old gang.” She heard Bab's message.

“Right. I will be there.”

A few moments later, the assassin landed silently, like a ninja in the shadows, much like Batman would do. She saw Black Canary, Vixen, Karate Princess, [sign in to see URL]. She stepped out the shadows in her Black Bat attire, looking to the group but not saying anything. She didn't care for any of them really... Red Robin was a friend but she knew the rest thought she just used Batman's toys and shield for her own means, and they weren't wrong...

“What is it? I am in the middle of an investigation for Batman. Oh, hello Batgirl. How are things?” she said softly. Tonight, Cassandra Cain was in her Black Bat Ninja outfit, sans the cloak she normally wore.

And there was a good reason.

Vixen looked at the Black Bat with slightly cautious eyes. As a being in touch with the animalistic nature of people she could sense from the woman something others may not pick up on; that killer instinct. That animal predatory gaze lions, tigers, wolves, and crocs have. On other animals it was fine.... but humans? It was something holy different.

Humans were vicious, mean and could be more cruel than the most violent lion or hyena. For now she simply crossed her arms and leaned back on the railing on the roof even as she looked over to Dinah and smiled, giving her a wave. They went way back, as a matter of fact she had played a part in even convincing Vixen to join the Justice League in the first place... So long ago it was.

“So what's the big shindig about Canary?” She said, not sure who knew her full identity or who didn't at this meeting. “I missed a pretty crazy party to come here you know.” She said, smirking at the woman.

Re: We Are The Birds of Prey! (Open RP)


Impressive.

Karate Princess was thoroughly impressed with the gathering of women here tonight. She half expected Wonder Woman to show up. She would be in awe of Black Bat, having heard of her skills, it lit a fire in her that needed to be answered!

That is until Black Canary spoke to her.

“Ah yes... Hello again Black Canary. I trust tonight you are on the right side of the law?” She asked the woman, looking at her rather skeptically. When the others arrived she smiled, remembering Vixen from the murderous vigilante issue they handled a month or so ago for Oracle.

“Oracle called you all here too?”

It was then on the rooftop a hologram of Oracle's “Virtual” self appeared. The familiar green head was large enough for all to see as the woman spoke.

“Hello all. Glad to see most of my guests could make it. Why did I call together such a group of women? Well I'll let Black Canary explain the gritty details... But basically I'm putting together another team and I want you all on it. Canary, take it away.”

On Dinah's phone she'd get the information of a new Nest, one in San Francisco, which puts them an hour from seattle and 2 from San Diego depending on how they get there, it had everything they would need going forward IF they joined. Dinah had the information to explain just what the Birds of Prey are, and what it means to join... It isn't a 24/7 gig, but a whenever Oracle or Black Canary have jobs for you, or if the Tribunal asks for assistance.

Dinah had everything she needed to explain, so now all eyes would fall on her.
