While preparing for a performance, Dick overheard two gangsters attempting to extort protection money from the circus owner. The owner refused, so the gangsters sabotaged the trapeze wires with acid. During the next performance, the trapeze from which Dick's parents were swinging snaps, sending them to their deaths. Before he could go to the police, Batman appeared and warned him that the two gangsters worked for Tony Zucco, a very powerful crime boss, and that revealing his knowledge could lead to his death. When Batman recounted the murder of his own parents, Dick asked to become his aide. After extensive training, Dick became Robin. After successfully managing to take down Tony Zucco, Robin became Batman's ward and had helped him countless times with the issues circling around Gotham City and its super-criminal issue. Powers/Abilities: Dick Grayson possesses the peak athletic strength and endurance of a man in his mid-twenties who regularly engages in intensive physical exercise. His martial arts skills rival those of Batman. He is a master of dozens of martial arts disciplines and was rigorously trained by his mentor in everything from escapology to criminology, fencing, stealth, disguise, and numerous other combat/non-combat disciplines. Grayson is a prodigious natural athlete, possessing a peak human level of agility/acrobatic skills. He is regarded as the greatest human acrobat in the DC Universe. He is the only human on Earth who can do the quadruple somersault (formerly one of three, the other two being his parents). Having had the finest education as Bruce Wayne's ward, he fluently speaks in English, Romanian (his first language), French, Spanish, Russian, Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, the alien language of Tamaran, and American Sign Language. He is also a brilliant and experienced strategist with superlative leadership skills. Additionally, Dick's interpersonal skills and efforts to remain in contact with other heroes makes him a master at rallying, unifying, and inspiring the superhero community, a skill in which he has surpassed his mentor. Items His metal quarter staff and a modified motorcycle called the Batpod (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Batpod (open) Batpod (close) Weaknesses/Tragic Flaw: Much like his partner, Richard is only human. Bullets, Knives, Fires, Explosions, Falling from Heights, and pretty much anything else lethal to a human being can kill him. Richard also is a little cocky and finds himself butting-heads with Batman every now and again, much like how a real teenage son would act towards his father. Relationships: Batman - Trainer and Partner-in-Crime (Fighting) Barbara Gordon - (depends on what role Seeking Calliope puts her in) Alfred Pennyworth - Trusted Butler and loyal Friend (second father, next to Batman) He's currently single, but is always looking (despite Batman's warnings about dating while involved with this line of work) Occupation: None, but he goes to a Private School (occasionally, when he's not fighting crime) Other: Robin's always wanted a dog... NANANANANANANANANANANANANANA BAT-HOOOOOOOUUUUND! ... Unfortunately, Batman won't let him adopt one. Stupid Batman... Sample Post: BANG!! THUMP. THUMP. THUMP. RATTATATAATATA!!! "EVERYBODY BACK ON THE GROUND!! STAY THERE!! DONT BE MAKING ANY MORE FUNNY BUSINESS OR ELSE THIS PLACE GOES BYE-BYE!!" "OY!! "CHEEKS"!! 'URRY UP WIT THEM BAGS!!" "Ey, what's ya problem, "Bulb"? Not scared of the cops, are ya?" "Its not the cops we should be worried about man, its those damn vigilantes. Especially the Bat... Is that the last of the money?" One of the goons who was referred to as "Cheeks" walked towards the armoured truck and patted the side. His companion, "Bulb", pointed his armed and ready AK-47 at the crowd of people in the bank. The truth was, rather then break into the bank on their own and steal the money via a stick-up, they stole one of the GCPD's armoured cars and crashed it directly beside the vault, so they could get in and out of the bank quickly. Cheeks patted the side of the truck and closed the back door, waving for the 3rd gang member, "Bones", to get in the truck and start it up. "Bones" quickly ran to the car and climbed in, and was soon followed by "Bulb" and "Cheeks". The bank tellers were terrified about what these criminals might've done to them and the customers, but were still in shock of the whole turn of events and remained on the floor. As the armoured car sped away, the SWAT forces around the First National Bank of Gotham burst in and tried to eliminate the issue. As the armoured car sped off, the lights and sirens of police cars soon erupted through Gotham as they gave chase to the armed bank-robbers. From a nearby rooftop, The Boy Wonder looked at the scene and shook his head. "I've got them in my sights Alfred." he quietly whispered, pressing a finger to his ear. "Very good, Master Richard. Should I prepare a congratulatory cup of tea for when you get back home?" the butler replied in his usual tone of voice, making Robin frown a bit. "No Alfred. Could I get a little less sarcasm, please?" Robin asked in an annoyed tone. Even though he loved Alfred like a very warm, compassionate, British father figure, he certainly didn't approve of the occasional mocking and comments that the butler said. Sure it was all in good sport and the teen often laughed off the comments, but sometimes it pissed him off. "Very well, Sir. Perhaps now you should begin your pursuit of the criminals?" "I was just about to do that." "Of course you were." "I was, Alfred!" "Mhm. They're getting away, you know." "... Alfred, I've gotta go." Quickly releasing the button in the communicator, Robin got up and walked to the other side of the roof. The teen swung a leg over the Batpod, smiling widely as it let out a loud purr, signalling it was on. "Alright Robin, you can do this. Just remember, keep civilians out of the crossfire and end it quickly." he told himself before pulling back on the right handle of the vehicle. With a loud roar of the engine, the wheels rapidly span and began to propel him forwards. Launching himself off the rooftop at a high speed, he landed directly on the highway pass that was not too far of a drop from the building's roof. Landing on the road with an audible "THUMP", Robin pulled back both handles and sped up, leaning forwards for the sake of aerodynamics. He sped down the highway in an incredible speed, dodging cars as he chased down the cops. Soon, he overtook the GCPD cars. The officers only looked at the boy in shock as his cape fluttered by. However, just as quickly as he appeared, he was gone, having sped up to pursue the culprits. "Bones" looked out the rear view window of the armoured truck and his eyes popped open in surprise as he saw the Boy Wonder in hot pursuit. He turned his head to "Cheeks" and "Bulb", shouting "ITS THE BAT'S KID!! WASTE'IM!!". The back doors of the armoured truck flung open and "Cheeks" grabbed his AK-47, firing it blindly into the night as the car swerved and screeched, trying to get more speed while avoiding traffic. Robin quickly pulled back on the gas and shoved the Batpod further behind the truck to avoid the gunfire. He pressed a button on the side on the left handle and from the metal tubes where explosives would usually be launched from, two metal darts were fired and hit the trucks back lights. Shit!! I missed!! Robin thought as "Cheeks" unleashed more gunfire, hitting some of the nearby cars as Robin swerved out of the way. Reading his darts for another try, Robin closed one eye and pressed the button again. Two more darts launched rom the barrel and successfully hit the wheels of the armoured car. The car began to swerve out of control and, before the passengers could react, suddenly flipped over. The car continued to flip as it rapidly sped down the highway, sending gym bags full of money into the streets and knocking the criminals around inside. Cursing himself for accidentally causing a traffic-issue, Robin pulled up in the Batpod and climbed off. He could deal with Batman's repercussions later. Right now, he had some criminals to bag. Removing his helmet, he walked towards the three jumbled and confused criminals who had fallen out of the window while their vehicle flipped. They were beat up, sure, but none of them were dead, which pleased Robin. As "Bulb" groaned and began to reach for the gun at his side, Robin shook his head and pulled out his quarter staff. Holding it at the thugs chest, Robin watched as "Bulb" yelled in pain, obviously from a fractured rib or some kind of internal injury. "Buddy, if I were you, I'd just stay right where you are until the cops come and take you to Blackgate... Hope you like the colour Orange.."
