Synopsis for "Azrael Does Not Protect"
The helicopter crashes with Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth inside. They survived the explosion caused by Carleton LeHah but the site is completely destroyed along with the chalet where Jean-Paul Valley and Nomoz were.
Jean-Paul and Nomoz survived the explosion because they headed to an underground survival shelter reffered to as a "fallout shelter".
An avalanche happened as a result of the explosion, covering the underground shelter and damaging the chopper used by LeHah to escape. While narrating the events of the accident, LeHah felt the presence of Biis, a demon lord considered an archenemy of Azrael. Under his influence, LeHah murdered the pilot of the helicopter.
Meanwhile Bruce and Alfred went down to the place where the chalet had been when suddenly the ground under them started to crumble. From underneath came a hovercraft with Nomoz and Jean-Paul inside. Bruce now in the Batman robes, is attacked by Azrael and left behind in the snow. Instead of following the hovercraft, Batman and Alfred decide to check the hideout from where the vehicle had arisen and foud some facts on the Order of St. Dumas
LeHah, now acting as Biis, starts a manhunt of those people who belong in the Order of St. Dumas. Nomoz being aware of that fact decides to go with Jean-Paul to visit and old member of the Order that was currently hospitalized. Just as they arrive to the hospital room, they realize Biis was already there and Jean-Paul is shot many times and pushed back through a window falling down to a certain death.
