Synopsis for "Legacy, Part I of II"
Three young Metahumans named Cross Christina, Grouse, and Server Aja take hostages on the roof of a sports equipment factory. The Teen Titans drop down out of the sky and engages them. Wonder Girl swoops one of the hostages up and flies her to safety. Robin and Raven fight with Cross Christina, while Cyborg matches his technological wits against Server Aja. Wonder Girl returns and flings Grouse off of the roof of the building allowing Kid Flash to catch him in a thermal updraft.
Later, the Titans return to Titans Tower and engage in some friendly bowling in the tower's rec room. Robin is depressed because it is the first Father's Day since the passing of his own father, Jack Drake. Cyborg consoles him and reminds Tim that the Titans are really a family of orphans.
Meanwhile, in the realm of Chaos, Kestrel petitions his masters the Lords of Chaos for more power. They agree to concede to his wishes if he succeeds in bringing them the soul of Raven. Kestrel opens a dimensional aperture to Earth and sets upon recruiting two loyal agents. He finds the three metahumans and decides to make Cross Christina and Server Aja his new sidekicks. Expressing no interest in Grouse, he promptly kills him.
In Georgetown, Washington, D.C., Dove and the new Hawk become aware of Kestrel's presence on Earth. They contact the Teen Titans and express their desire to aid them in tracking Kestrel down.
Kestrel attacks Titans Tower. The young heroes spring into action and immediately begin fighting Cross Christina and Server Aja. Kestrel attacks Raven directly and tears through her soul self with his powerful claws. Raven lets out a shriek of immense pain and then collapses.
