She was Lynx and was the only survivor of a street gang war. Batman was leaving her alone when Lynx attacked him and they started to fight each other. After a while, Batman learned of an underground operation that was affecting Lynx's gang as well. They decided to join forces and work together to find out was was going on.
After some research, they discovered that some gang of organized crime was behind the dissapearing of a lot of people. Batman and Lynx went to a power plant to check the energy source and they discovered that a gang of organized crime was generating energy by forcing illegal immigrants to pedal some static bicycles that transformed mechanical energy to kilowatts. They realized that the immigrants were being enslaved by the gang to keep the power running. Lynx reflected upon slavery as she suffered from it when she worked for King Snake.
Batman and Lynx tried to free the immigrants but before they could realize, they were surrounded by members of the gang and all of them were ready to fight Batman and Lynx.
