History: During a fateful childhood visit to Haly's Circus, young Tim Drake marveled at the unique
acrobatics of "The Flying Garysons." Wonder turned to horror as he watched the adult Garysons plunge to their
death. His terror was eased by the sudden appearance of Batman, who swept on to comfort the now-orphaned Dick
Years later, Tim's curiosity about his childhood hero got the better of him. Demonstrating uncanny detective
skills, Tim eventually discovered Batman's secret identity and learned that Jason Todd, the second Robin, had
recently been killed by the Joker.
Convinced that Batman needed a new Robin, Tim offered his services in a surprise visit to Wayne Manor. Batman
put Tim through months of rigorous training before allowing him to make his debut as Robin. It was a role Tim
excelled at, his only dilemma at first being how to balance his roles of hero and ordinary teen.
When Jack Drake, Tim's father, discovered his Robin identity, Tim hung up the cape to respect his father's wishes.
His girlfriend, Stephanie Brown, took advantage of his absence and became Robin. Though her tenure was short-lived,
it would be the catalyst for her initiating and ultimately dying in the gang wars that brought Tim back into
the costume. A few days later, Tim would suffer an even greater loss when his father was killed by the villain
known as Captain Boomerang.
His life irrevocably altered, Tim has relocated to Blüdhaven while his stepmother recuperates from a nervous
breakdown. He has vowed not to let his recent personal tragedies diminish his hope and make him like Batman, but
how long he can restrain his darker emotions remains to be seen.
