Synopsis for "Shaman (Book V of V)"
Batman approaches the front door of Wayne Manor. Just inside the door, awaits the knife-wielding Woodley, ready to stab Wayne when he enters. Behind Woodley is Alfred Pennyworth, gagged and tied to a chair. Woodley begins to get restless from waiting and Wayne leaps upon him from the second floor of the house's interior. In the ensuing fight, Wayne is almost stabbed. Wayne successfully breaks the man's arm with a throw and the Woodley runs away. Wayne cannot follow because of the disguise he was wearing that stopped the knife from reaching his skin.
Later, he follows the tracer's signal in the fake Shaman's robes that he placed earlier. Batman appears in the midst of a sacrifice, and belittles and shames the fake Shaman in front of his men by using all the props and traps he prepared earlier, and so they will not follow him any longer. Batman ties up and leaves the Shaman for the police.
Back in Wayne Manor, Batman looks for any sign of Woodley and after looking for a while, he finds the man agonizing in the middle of the snowy forest. Batman tries to save the renegade indian but it is already too late. Before dying, the man surrenders the mask of the bat-shaman to Batman and Bruce decides to deliver it back to where it belongs.
Bruce travels to Alaska and finds out that the shaman that cured him is already dead. The grandaughter teaches Bruce a very important lesson and he finally realizes that he must become the mask, for that is his destiny. Bruce returns to Gotham, places the bat-mask in the Batcave and goes out to patrol his city at night.
