Deacon Blackfire is the leader of a cult that operates from the sewers and wants to gain control of Gotham City.
Deacon’s followers are homeless people duped by his alluring talk of a new, better life. This speech is full of beliefs and an end goal so desired that they will do whatever it takes to achieve it.
The reality is that Blackfire has used his psychology to manipulate these poor people. His modus operandi is always the same. He uses his followers to carry out his plans and uses his psychology and drugs to get people to side with him.
When they manage to kidnap Batman, the end is near. It is only a matter of time before Gotham City ends under the will of this new sect that wants to impose its desire on everyone.
The driving force of the Court of Owls crew is its henchmen, the Talon, who normally have well above average stats, and weapons that focus on dealing damage quickly and effectively. Their Objective deck primarily focuses on removing enemies, but a playstyle like that has a cost. Simply dealing damage isn’t enough. First, you must target and mark an enemy model as “Prey” before dealing the final blow if you want to score your Objectives. The Court of Owls is considered one of the “elite” crews in the game, with each model having enough strength to take down any target in the opponent’s crew.
