Wayne Manor, the illustrious home of the Wayne Family that has lasted generations upon generations since the old days of Gotham City. Previously owned by the multi-billionaire Bruce Wayne, it is now owned by his daughter and surviving heir, Natalie Wayne, who inherited all his wealth, possessions, and property by result. It is kept in excellent condition, and has highly trained guards that humbly roam the estates after many attacks, with up to date security systems, and ancient art all within. Below the Manor, and unknown to a large many, is the infamous Batcave, hidden behind security measures known to even fewer.

It was early morning, the sun had only barely begun to creep over the horizon. The light slowly illuminated the brick walls of Wayne Manor, casting a long shadow across the estate. A man wandered the halls of Wayne Manor, taking in each picture, observing every detail. A man with black hair and blue eyes, and a face very much like Natalie Wayne, he was the famous Bruce Wayne. He came to the main living room and gazed at the portrait of the previous Waynes, Bruce, Selina, and little Natalie.

Natalie Wayne was certainly awake, and to say she was aware of the intruder was an understatement, however, it was delayed a bit due to the nature of it. A quick thermal scan revealed strange heat signatures, massed movements, rapidly shifting, it wasn't normal in the least, and camera footage picked up her father, something that made Natalie frown heavily.

Popping down the hallway, she seemed dressed in what appeared to be denim jeans, a black turtle neck, and her shoulder-blade length dyed red hair was clearly visible, unlike her portrait depicting her as raven haired. Peering at the imposter she frowned heavily. "It's not polite to take the appearance of dead men..., especially when you get the eyes and nose wrong...and trust me, i'd know my other father. Who are you, and why did you break into my home? Not to mention...bypass my security?" She'd say, curious at this strange individual looking like her father, but not quite.

The man looked to the voice and frowned as well. He recognized her as Natalie Wayne, current resident of the Manor, and spoke in a voice that wasn't quite Bruce Wayne. "I apologise for your distress. I meant you no harm. I simply wished to meet the daughter of such a great man. I figured if I were discovered, this body would bear a more positive reaction than my actual form." He said as he began to melt, skin going from tanned, to a red and transparent as Bruce Wayne became a mass of goo on the ground with a human skull and spinal column, then took a human-like shape around the bones. "Most tend to be frightened or disgusted by me. I anticipate that you will not?" It asked, voice now a sort of bubbling and gurgling, as if under water. "As I understand, your father did a great many things for the helpless, and you have continued this path. I was interested in meeting you."

Natalie raised an eyebrow, watching as the figure shifted form into what seemed to be a practical mass of goo. Well, that was a new one, but it was right on one account, she wasn't frightened or disgusted, almost curious more than anything. "This is Gotham, would have to do much better to be...stranger and profound than what happens here." She'd say, cracking a sly grin and then giving a small nod to the creature.

"Well...try not to make the place dirty." She'd say in response, and then when it mentioned something about helping the helpless, she raised a brow and just offered a slight smile. "You'd be correct, helping the helpless is something my father decided to start, and I've felt it only right to continue it. Charity donations and drives to improve Gotham for the better are things we strive for now in the Wayne foundation."

The creature nodded in agreement. "Yes, in my short time I have seen many things that most would consider strange. Metropolis and Gotham seem to be converging points for these oddities." It said, then shifted into a smaller Man Bat, a smaller Gorilla Grodd, even a smaller Lobo before returning to Its natural form. "On the contrary, my gelatinous body attracts and absorbs dirt, so if anything your home is cleaner than when I entered."

"As the Justice League of America and other Hero associations have been destroyed by Darkseid, I have been seeking other meta-humans to form another team. However, the strength of others is not enough. If you can spare the money, we will need funding. As one of the more wealthy individuals of this world, wnd closest in approximation, I wished to ask if you would be a financial backer to form the new defense against evil."

Natalie watched the creature shift into old villians beings briefly, almost curious as she did, and raised an eyebrow at the blobs explanation. When it finally went into wanting to form a new League, she was curious now, for a lot of reasons, and she wasn't fully sure if Batwoman should join such a thing quite yet. She'd watch it, and for now, it seemed like a positive thing to support it, and through such, monitor it closely.

"Well, Bruce supported the last Justice League. It is a noble cause, I'll support the cause. I hope you can get members for it, the worlds growing dangerous once again, and not just in Gotham, I imagine."

The slime seemed to nod in approval. "Yes, indeed. The threats to our world seem to be returning in new and strange forms. Gang violence has erupted in the last few years since the attack from Darkseid. Crime rates are higher than ever without the heroes. Now more than ever, we need people of good natures to step forward to do the right thing. I value life too much to let it destroy itself, and I won't allow these criminals to spread fear once more. With the financial backing of the Waynes, we can begin the first phase of the project. Constructing a Hall."

Natalie gave a small nod. "That is true. It's even caused the Bat's to re-appear, this Batwoman's entry into Gotham seems to be starting to make progress. But it's not enough in the end, this city has always been a seeping boiling pot of chaos and corruption, it'll just get worse before it gets better if only one hero fights against it." She'd say, then she'd offer a smile. "I'm going to be holding a party later this evening, you can come if you wish, a party to celebrate a new future for Gotham, and to reveal a new Wayne foundation building in the works, a new orphanage. To help the children affected by this cities vast issues. It's a small step, but each one benefits in the end."

The mention of the Bat themed vigilantes seemed to pique the creature's interest. "In the past, the Batman was a key member of the Justice League. Perhaps this new Batwoman will join the cause." The Ooze gurgled. It tilted what could loosely be called its head as it was offered an invitation.

"The invitation is much appreciated, however I must decline. I must continue my search for assistance in the formation of a new defense against evil. To which, I must thank you again, Miss Wayne." The Ooze stretched out a large portion of itself, which formed into a functioning hand.

Natalie offered a polite smile, perhaps this creature did have the right basis about it. Time would tell in the end on that regard, and she'd need to heavily regard just what this new League would prove out to be after some time in funding. She gave a nod to the creature, "Of course, safe travels then." She'd say, shaking the creature's hand in a firm, business like way as if it was another human in front of her.

Only moments after Natalie grabbed the slimy hand, it began to change. It became thinner and changed from its transparent red to the same color as Natalie's skin. Its body changed as well until the Ooze was a perfect genetic replicate of Natalie, complete with black hair.

"I apologise, this happens each time I absorb new DNA." It said before changing back to its original gooey form. "I wish you well on your endeavors, and hope we can meet again, Miss Wayne." And with that, the Ooze flattened itself against the ground and slid away, underneath the door and away from Wayne Manor, disappearing into the morning.

After the Ooze left, the rest of the day proceeded as normal. Many calls, preparations and efforts would be made for this evenings festivities, a night perhaps she wouldn't need to go out, but that was doubtful, she always needed to go out. Luckily the event was in the afternoon and would last till evening, giving her plenty of time after word to rest and then go out if needed, then again, it was always needed. Natalie had little information if there were others trying to guard over Gotham, it made it easier, but they had to play by the rules in the end if they wanted to help, as few as those rules were.

The day proceeded onward as many high class individuals made their way to Wayne Manor, almost forty men and women of the higher echelon of the cities structure were present, wine was given out, and treats were as-well, as Natalie gave her formal thanks for everyone showing up to join in the celebration for the new orphanage and hospital being funded and donated to by the Wayne corporation, boosting the cities future, while easing the city council's burden on trying to find solutions to these growing issues. It was a start, to a long process she knew, but it was for the betterment in the end. Various donations were welcome to the cause, the cause headed and led by the Wayne Corporation the entire way, with Natalie herself donned in a black strap dress that hugged her body nicely, a slight glimmer emanating from it to highlight it's class and price in a modest, yet obvious form, a slit extending from the left leg to show portions of it when she walked.

After a long speech about the funding and works going forward, she raised her glass with a broad smile to the crowd, echoing off a cheer as she praised the efforts to restoring the city, and that the Wayne family will always back it's security and stability, no matter what, a continuation for what her father started and she'd never give up in his name. Once the speech ended, the party would go onto it's course, with mingling able to occur finally and Natalie greeting the various guests around the manor.

Of all the high ranking guests attending the party that night, there was one whose quiet confidence and beauty stood out among all the rest.

Alicia had heard tales of Wayne Manor from her family and as her high heeled feet stepped out of the limousine that had driven her there, the assassin was glad to see that it was still being kept in good condition. During the Batman's time, the manor had been little more than a front to distract from the cave hidden beneath it and as the generational baton was passed it would have been easy for the manor's condition to start slipping. History and heritage were important, Alicia thought to herself, and it reflected well on Natalie that she wasn't allowing such a historic building to deteriorate.

She smiled to her driver and shut the limousine door as she straightened up, her slinky black open back dress hugging her slender body and ample breasts. She readjusted her long black hair so that it was behind her shoulders and not tumbling into the dress' plunging neckline before making her way into the manor. She picked herself a drink from the trays being carried around and soon spotted people she recognised from her numerous networking events, ignoring the admiring looks she was getting from men and a few of the women as she made polite conversation with a man and woman she knew from the banking sector.

Her eyes soon landed upon Natalie and a smirk appeared on her face as soon as she saw her. Alicia wasn't here to hurt anyone, not tonight. She was simply here to observe and Natalie was certainly a beautiful mark to be keeping an eye on. She sipped her drink throughout the speech and began to mingle properly with the other guests as Natalie moved around introducing herself to people, feeling a small tingle of anticipation as Natalie approached her.

Somewhere.
Star wasn't too familiar with the Wayne family. It was too her understanding that they were essentially the most important family in Gotham, or one of them. What her sister told her was that the Wayne's had done a lot of good for the city. Yui had been invited to an event held by the daughter of Bruce Wayne himself. Yui lived simply, but the woman was indeed quite powerful on her own and very wealthy as she owned and oversaw several large collections of mythical artifacts and studied herself. She didn't have the strongest connection to her bloodline, but having her on your side was not a bad idea....and she hated events like this. She hated them even more than Star did and so in her place Star was coming.

Star was a royal anyway, and her attending did cause a bit of a stir. Related to one of the elite in Gotham and carrying status herself it was only right she attended even if it was just to cover for her sister. Star was well accustomed to the nature of events like this given her position, but she was not about to show up quietly. No. Star was not known for such things back on her world and she wouldn't pretend to be here either. Instead she had every intention of making her presence known because in doing so any who might think of abusing magic would stay their hand. Gemworld was at least known to Earth at this point though many had never been there. Star was making it clear she was choosing Gotham as her home due to the magic that resided here.

It was a simple matter getting there, a quick drive on the motorcycle she bought. She normally rode horses but this was good enough while she was on Earth. Most were arriving in limos or fancier cars, but it wasn't hard for her to find a place to park. Once the bike was secured she made her way inside. The princess wasn't much for dresses, and so settled with a red velvet minidress with a blazer style. Crystals in intricate patterns on her shoulders. It clung well to her figure, and dipped quite low revealing a good amount of her bust but not too much. She had on black stockings and red heels as well. Simple enough, allowed her movement in the event anything happened. She still wore her tiara however just as a show of her status. It clashed someone but with the nature of it worked well enough.

She began to mingle with the people, carrying herself with a fiery confidence and yet with grace. She didn't have problems getting to know anyone, taking a drink when offered. She met many of Yui's own buisness partners and of course was using this time to get a lead on any sort of artfiacts or occurances that might interest her. She wasn't just here for appearances, she still had work to do. She might as well get something out of this event if she was here and then leave once it was time to get to her true business.

Natalie Wayne took her time mingling with the guests, noticing both Alicia and Star enter, it was easy to spot, both stood out quite a bit. Giving her introductions to Star first, in a cordial way, she didn't need to observe her too much, but, she had to keep eyes on everyone in her home, even if subtly, and with a quick series of types on her phone, as if a business message came, in reality, she subtly activated her security systems now that everyone seemed to be in place, with hidden cameras, movement monitors, and other devices triggered and began to scan the entire mansion top to bottom, even the Bat Cave, though she doubted that one would be touched, still, her father taught her to plan around everything, and so she did.

After she gave most of her introductions she approached Alicia, the woman was quite appealing, she had to admit, and playing up her billionaire, flaring positive personality, she gave a warm, polite smile as she approached Alicia fully "Greetings, Natalie Wayne, welcome to my manor." She'd say, reaching out her hand as if to offer a polite handshake, her dyed red hair reaching to her shoulders, much different to the way her suit was, and her eyes being dark green, also different from her suit and without the mask's voice emulator, she sounded like a true Gothamite, with a calm, deep, firm and direct way of speaking, yet positive and chilled, full of life as she greeted Alicia.

"It's a pleasure to finally meet you Natalie...or at least I hope it will be" Alicia replied smoothly, taking the redhead's hand and softly kissing the back of it while keeping her eyes fixed on Natalie's. The assassin's voice was calm and steady, showing just how comfortable she was with her surroundings as she demonstrated her ability to blend into any environment. There was an intense energy to her gaze that was matched only by Natalie's own, as if the raven-haired beauty was reading deep into Natalie's soul just by looking at her.

Everyone else in the room around them seemed to fade into the background as Alicia's focus became fixed on Natalie. They were all still there of course, and Alicia was still aware of them just as any assassin must remain aware of their surroundings, but Natalie was the only one she had eyes for right now and she knew her gaze would convey that to the other woman.

"You have a lovely home Natalie" she said warmly. "I do hope it doesn't get too lonely for you being in such a big estate with so little company" she added, a flirtatious edge creeping into her voice.

Natalie raised a brow when Alicia kissed the back of her hand, the woman was strange, but the way she spoke, and how she acted compared to others was the most peculiar. The woman was quite the natural, but why, it raised a bit of suspicion, but not enough to warrant much beyond things right now. Still, the way Alicia's gaze burned so intensely, the way she acted, it was so easy, so controlled, so blending to the situation as if it was natural, too natural. It reminded her of herself a bit, but then again, her mind felt muddled, the last few nights being Batwoman combined with her intense training with her father for so many years got to her a bit.

As quickly as the thoughts came, she responded as if nothing happened. "Why thank you, and no. I do have my Butler after all, it's never truly alone when you can make company of someone pleasant. Speaking of which...what is your name, I would love to know the name of someone so pleasant and captivating." She'd say, her voice polite, calm, and flowing to the situation, a name held a lot of power, and she knew she'd be able to look up everyone's name she learned from tonight for any kind of record, fabricated or otherwise on the Bat Computer in the cave. First names alone held a longer process, but eventually, a face always matches. Paranoia and caution always crept in her, almost reactionary, a gift from her fathers teachings.

"Oh do forgive me, I didn't think to bring my name tag" Alicia replied, chuckling softly. "Alicia Amery, head of the Gotham Heritage Association" she continued nodding politely. "You'll have to forgive my enthusiasm for seeing the manor, Miss Wayne. It's not often that I get to see a privately owned property of such renowned heritage from the inside."

Natalie formed a slight grin at Alicia's remark, and gave a small nod, perhaps she wasn't too bad, but, there'd be time to look up who Alicia Amery was in due time, for now, she was able to speak to a beautiful woman and decided she shouldn't worry too much right now and simply enjoy herself. "Oh, my apologies. I did not mean to be rude about it. It's a pleasure to meet you, miss Amery, that is quite the career you have put yourself toward, one worthy of respect. I appreciate you coming here, and no need to worry...this event is rather open, if i'm to be honest, I don't much like most open high end parties. Though they do find me meeting quite the appealing people, I must admit." She'd say, her voice taking a softer tilt at her final words, looking over Alicia briefly as if to look her over, but then looking into the woman's eyes at the end.
