The Talon is a loyal agent working for the Court of Owls and first appeared in the season premiere of Gotham "Mad City: Better to Reign in Hell…". He is portrayed by Brandon Alan Smith.
When Court of Owls member Kathryn (The White Haired Woman) is informed by a Wayne Enterprises board member about Bruce Wayne's visit and threat to expose the Court's activities unless contacted, she dispatches the Talon to go and get him, ordering the loyal agent to make it quick.
The Talon arrives at Wayne Manor where he gets into a confrontation with Bruce's guardian and butler Alfred Pennyworth. Although Alfred fights the Talon and seems to be holding his own, the Talon successfully knocks Alfred out. A frantic Bruce arrives and checks Alfred to see if he is alright, and the Talon sneaks up behind the boy and captures him.
The Talon brings Bruce before the Court and knocks him out with cloroform after Bruce has struck a deal with Kathryn.
