The Cavalier src
Hudson Pyle, the Cavalier was a stunt man with extensive training in swordplay who became a Gotham City vigilante.

This brought him into conflict with the Batman, although Hudson was allowed to remain active because of his high skill level. Tragically, he fell in love with a woman who had committed murder, and was forced to turn to a life of crime to protect her. This involved killing a number of men in organized crime who would otherwise have condemned her. After a dramatic sword fight with Batman, he was forced to give himself up... to save the woman he loved from a life in prison, he ran directly into police gunfire with an empty pistol, and sacrificed himself.[1]
