Still staying hidden in the shadows, the Gotham Knight listened to the rest of the Zero Squad members. Each had a good point to give. While most wanted to return the child to her parent's, it would still be a dangerous mission. They would not take the news lightly of how the Zero Squad abducted their daughter. Nevertheless, it was the right thing to do. The Gotham Knight stepped out of the shadows and walked up to a window. The night was quiet, but there was a disturbance in the midst. Suddenly, a whistling roar threatened to collapse the Zero Squad HQ foundation. Clusters of a smokey trail moved towards the base. Before the Gotham Knight could say anything the base was hit by a recognizable RPG missle.
Inside, the Zero Squad team suffered the violent tremor from the missle. A part of the floor from the conference room fell below, a couple of floors down until it hit the very ground. Unfortunately, the Gotham Knight was standing on the floor when it occured. He plunged below, getting smacked in the face with debris thus turning into bruises and scratches. The caped fluttered in all corners, getting fragments of debris stuck to the bulletproof cape. The Gotham Knight landed on his in the basement. His cape's sudden shift in form(shifted into a crumbling state), supported the Dark Knight's back from the sharp fall. Above, a much larger group of debris came crashing down, attempting to crush the Gotham Knight. Pulling a batrang from his utility belt, the Batman tossed up. Once it stuck to a large debris, it detonated blowing the large chunks into hundrerds of little pieces.
The Gotham Knight's sommersault pulled up on his feet and evaded the small pieces of debris. Taking the grapplergun, he pointed it towards the room above where he once stood before falling. He fired it, sending a hook nailing it the ceiling of the conference room. Strapping the gun on his belt, he was quicly pulled up. The lenses on his cowl protected him from the hazardous clouds in the building, as well as the coverage of his nose. There was no one in the conference room. They either took the task of retrieving the girl or they just decided to evacuate. Ronin promised he would risk his life for the mission, and that was what he intended of keeping.
Rushing through the Zero Squad HQ towards the room where the girl was suppose to be, the Gotham Knight manuevered himself past falling debris, crumbling of floors, and fire that began to slowly turn the Zero Squad Headquarters into rubble. The team would one day have to rebuild it, but there were matters more important right now. If this was indeed the L.A.S., it was silly to Bruce why they would risk endangering the life of one of their own with a missle. The more he thought, he soon came to a possible conclusion, Drifter.
The force from his kick and incredibly strong boots knocked the door down. Searching for the girl, she was no where to be found. Examining marks from the shaft above, he could tell the infiltrators must of gotten the small but important cargo. It was no use to keep searching, someone had the girl. Shielding himself with his black cape, the Dark Knight sprinted through a fire that blocked him from a window in the room. As soon as the fire came in contact with the cape, it was soon estinguished. The cape served as a type of fire retardant. The Gotham Knight jolted through a window, cramming shattered glass onto his body armor. The Batman's cape spread apart like batwings. In the night, he indeed looked like a giant bat. While having moment of air to glide, the Gotham Knight circled the famous structure that was undersiege by flames from hell. His lenses picked up three exoskeletons below by the Zero Squad pool. With a touch of his gloves, he sent electric currents through the cape to mend its position. The cape folded like paper as he dove straightly down like a skidiver. He landed on his two foot in front of Moonshayde, Mantina, and Primevera.
"We have to find, Angelique." The Gotham Knight marched towards what was left of the Zero Squad HQ. The attack took a toll on the great building. The crackling flames would be victorious by hesiatingly smoldering it. The Gotham Knight vigilantly waited for any detection of familiar life in the building, standing outside.
