This storyline takes place after the events of No Man's Land. In the midst of No Man's Land, Batman gave a nameless girl with a violent past called Cassandra Cain the costume and title of Batgirl. Exceeding his expectations, the new, silent Batgirl quickly made the role her own, earning the trust of the Dark Knight's allies, including the first Batgirl, oracle. Now, in post-No Man's Land Gotham City, Batgirl struggles to learn the lessons of how to live a normal life, lessons she never learned from her mentor, the deadly assassin known as Cain. A mercenary from her past resurfaces, bent on revenge. Batgirl must therefore bury her own violent tendencies and break the cycle of death and destruction that has dogged her since childhood.
