Synopsis for "Strange Brew"
Klarion introduces himself to Robin. He warns him that someone from his own kingdom is creating a monstrous chimera known as the Judgment Beast. The Judgment Beast is already powerful, but it wants to appropriate the power of Klarion's cat, Teekl, as well. Robin is not sure what to make of Klarion, but agrees to help him nonetheless. They soon learn that another of Klarion's race, Uriah, is responsible for creating the Judgment Beast.
Robin and Klarion acquire a sample of Mugwort from the Gotham Botanical Gardens. With this, they now stand a chance against the Judgment Beast. The Judgment Beast consumes Teekl into it's essence, and Klarion tries to free him. Klarion is absorbed into the creature as well. Robin uses the Mugwort as a cruciform, and is able to destabilize the Judgment Beast's form. He also punches Uriah, knocking him unconscious. Klarion and Teekl are free, and the Beast splits apart into its various host animals. Klarion thanks Robin and tells him that he will return Uriah and the animals to their rightful domain.
