He's a stoic patient as she tends to the bullet in his arm. Lodged in his shoulder, the armor deflected enough of the projectile's impact to prevent bone from being injured.

"Junkie." he replies tersely.

He adjusts his seating to give her a better view of the arm.

"Should have kept my eyes on him while taking down the dealers." he adds.

There was a time when he would grit his teeth to endure the pain of having a bullet extracted. Leslie might now notice that his expression doesn't flicker in the slightest as she digs.

"There are some new and dangerous designer drugs on the street lately." he comments as he watches her skill.

"Dangerous stuff."

The manner in which he receives treatment concerns her almost as much the wound itself. It seems like he becomes more and more like Bruce every day. It isn't right that they endure pain as well as they do.

She pauses every so briefly at his last comment. "Any leads?"

He nods, impassive as he watches her expert stitching techniques.

"Scarecrow is the safe bet, and there is considerable circumstantial evidence to tie him to it as well. There is a complicating layer to it all though. I think we're seeing a power play between conflicting criminal enterprises."

Reaching into his belt, he retrieves a flash drive and places it on the exam table.
"I've been meaning to get this to you. It's a chemical analysis of some of the variants I've found."

His stoic expression turns grim.

"It's designed with the developing neurochemistry of adolescents in mind. Dopamine receptors are targeted, but that's not all. The addictive mechanism does allot of damage. Most users will either end up dying if they keep taking it, but kicking the stuff will require pharmacological assistance in order to survive the withdrawal stage.

I hope it helps if you start seeing some of the addicts showing up at the clinic."

She doesn't reach immediately for the flash drive. Both her hands are covered in blood and currently dedicated to the task of putting him back together. She does however listen as she works.

"By the time they reach me, it's usually too late." Her tones matches his expression.

That's been his experience as well, except for the rare occasion where he got lucky.

"Spoiler and I found a high school student ODing on one of the early variants a few weeks ago. They were calling it 'Blur'. We managed to stabilize him long enough for the paramedics to get there. ."

He checks his gauntlet and the flip-out display it conceals, checking police-bands in the area while Leslie works.

"We ended up bringing in Superboy and traced the dealers to a semi-permanent twenty-something rave club called 'Full Tilt'.

We ended up running into Bane. It turns out he's after the dealers too. Seems he didn't like what was happening to the kids either."

Bane remained a source of consideration for Tim. The man wasn't one of the 'good-guys', but he had come down on their side on that issue. He also knew way to much about Tim and Bruce for Robin's comfort. Bane. Damn. Tim knew he wasn't done with that puzzle.

"I have house calls to make tomorrow. While I'm out, I'll speak to a couple people about spreading a warning. If it saves even just one, it'll be worth it."

She's not surprised to hear Bane's name come up. "If you want to speak to Bane, he's right down the hall."

Surprise....and a bit of alarm.

"He's here???"

He pauses for a second, considering.

"I take it he's not causing trouble then." at least not right now.

"Yeah, I need to talk to him...he's not forcing you on this..is he?"

His uniform is already bloody. One more hand print is added to it as Leslie plants her palm on his opposite shoulder to halt any forward movement. He may want to talk to Bane but he's not going anywhere until she's done.

"He's not forcing me on anything," she reassure him, unconcerned. "Last time I checked, he was still sleeping off the aftereffects of the fear toxin."

He can hear the steel unspoken "sit your butt down" in her voice, and relents. A dutiful patient, he's going to stay still while the Doctor sews.

He grudgingly smiles.
The bat-crew, in costume or not, are a strong willed bunch.

"Yes, ma'am." comes the reply, with just a touch of playful sarcasm.

Fear Toxin? Hmmm...

"Any idea on how he was dosed?"

He was guessing it was in connection to the warehouse raid. Robin had lost track of him in the wrap up. It was past time he got the details on that loose end.

The reply earns him a smile. It's usually a battle to get any of them to stay long enough to be fully treated. Tim has always been the most cooperative of the bunch.

She shakes her head. "He came in chasing a man who he thought to be one Scarecrow's associates. Judging from his behavior, I suspect he'd been dosed considerably earlier."

While she ties off her handiwork and applies the bandage, she tells him about her earlier encounter with Bane and Selina.

Tim's expression goes through several modes: surprise, concern, alarm, consideration, back to concern and then back to the default 'brooding'.

"Bane's becoming an X factor. In theory he's working for the government, a disavowed branch of it, but he's got Federal backing somewhat."
He grimaces.
"He also knows or guesses way to much about Nightwing, Batman and I and who we are for my comfort. I know you'll help anyone who comes through your door and obeys the rules but...be careful with him."

Needless to say, he can count on it.

"Let me get cleaned up. Then I'll take you back to him."
