Timothy "Tim" DrakeAge:
15 Years OldAlias:
Tim has blue eyes and black hair like the rest of the Robins, besides Stephanie. However what makes him appear differently from the other older Robins is that his height is 5'5". He also has a slim and sort of athletic body type. He is not as muscular as the rest of the older Robins at all though, considering he's not as strong.Skills/Abilities:
After an incident with the Joker, he earned a few scars and markings.
Detective Skills - Tim is not as strong as Dick or Jason, maybe not even Damian, but he surely is smarter when it comes to being a detective. He had figured out Bruce Wayne was Batman after adding the pieces together. Receiving training from Batman himself only amplified his detective skills even more.Biography:
Martial Arts - Bo Staff - Batman trained Tim to learn martial arts, specifically with a bo staff. He had better chances with a staff than his fists. Tim became an expert with the bo staff over time, and is pretty resourceful with the weapon.
Martial Arts - Hand to Hand Combat - Tim may not be as good without his bo staff, he can still hold his own in a fight with his pure fists. He also was taught martial arts via fists. He was even taught a few ways how to pin a pressure point and subdue an hostile without having to exactly hurt them.
Stealth - Tim learned rather quickly that if he was going to work with Batman, he needed to learn how to be quiet when lurking in the shadows. It had its advantages, especially to sneak up on enemies with surprise. After all, it was a major thing in the Batfamily.
Agility - Like most of his other skills, training with the Bat taught him how to easily to go from rooftop to rooftop. It also helped him swiftly move in the darkness, and quickly counter his enemies or generally attack. He's no Flying Grayson though, not even close.
Motorcycle Driving - Tim's only transportation besides a grapple hook, was a motorcycle. Over time he learned how to expertly drive his motorcycle while either chasing enemies, or driving through Gotham in general. He also drives a motorcycle when he's not in costume.
Tim was born in 2002 to Jack and Janet Drake.
Tim had lived an normal life for the most pat unlike the first two Robins, who had their child hood completely tooken away from them. His parents never died, nor were they abusive. His father was never a drunk. His mother was never mean. Nor were they multi-billionaires or something extraordinary. It was actually a quite nice life he had.
Tim had figured that he was going to live a normal, but nice life as well in Gotham. At least he thought that was what his life was going to be like. One night, he learned from listening in on his parents talk when he should've been asleep, tucked in his bed, that Jack was working for a criminal called 'Two-Face'. They were arguing over it, how Janet wanted him to stop working such a dangerous life. Jack, however, loved the income he was given to provide his family with.
Tim never spoke of this to his parents; to anyone. He kept quiet, because well, he didn't want his father to be arrested. He asked Jack about what his job was. Jack lied straight to his face and said he worked in an office.
The little boy knew how his father gave him every nice little thing he wanted for Christmas, and the nice ring he got for his mother.
One night, at age 10, Tim started to simply just forget about what his father did for a living. He made all As as a student, and was a pretty smart kid. (He was satisfied when his mother went up to his school to talk with one of his teachers.)
At age 13, he started to recognize a current vigilante who'd been in Gotham as long as Tim was alive, the Batman. He also had to write a report about successful figures in Gotham at school, and chose Bruce Wayne. He then started to add things up: A man with dead parents would want revenge. And how else could some random vigilante get such advanced gadgets?
One day, Tim saw a police car drive up to his school. And he learned that his mother and father were killed in a shooting. Tim then realized that his father could've done something that Two-Face disliked, as working with such a criminal and dying in a shooting could not be an easy coincidence. This devastated Tim as well, and he wanted revenge.
So he walked up one night to the Wayne Manor, and confronted Bruce Wayne. And Bruce Wayne took him in, and taught him how to be a Robin.
