First Appearance: "Holiday Knights"
Position: Hero of Gotham

Bio: Robin is now Tim Drake, a thirteen year-old street kid adopted by Bruce Wayne. Tim's real father was a small-time hood (Stephen "Shifty" Drake) who stole money from Two-Face and then skipped town to escape the villain's wrath. Abandoned by his callous parent, Tim was forced to live on his own. A great admirer of Batman and Robin, Tim tried to act as brave and tough as his heroes, and successfully eluded Two-Face's year-long efforts to capture him and force him to reveal his father's whereabouts. Eventually Two-Face did catch Tim, only to later receive word through the underworld that Drake Sr. had fatally run afoul of gangsters in Central City. Furious, Two-Face ordered his men to kill Tim, but Batman caught up with the villain and rescued the boy. Admiring Tim's courage and fighting skills, Batman took him under his wing and a new Robin was born.

Owing to his years of parental neglect, Tim has grown up very "street" with a tough exterior and a chip on his shoulder. His new life as Bruce Wayne's ward has softened him a little, but he's still all sass and attitude when he goes into action as Robin. Much greener than Dick Grayson was at his age, Tim sometimes bites off more than he can chew when he rushes into danger. To a degree Tim feels he has to "earn his place" at Batman's side and he wants to prove he's all the hero the old Robin was and then some.

Bio (Cartoon Network): When the original Robin, Dick Grayson, abandons his role as Batman's partner to become Nightwing, Bruce Wayne is forced to find a new ward. He finds one in 13-year-old Tim Drake. Tim is the son of a two-bit gangster named Shifty Drake. When Tim's father falls out of favor with the notorious Two-Face, he leaves his son behind to save himself. Deserted, Tim is forced to grow up on his own, and he's only the tougher for it. After Batman witnesses Tim's ability to stand up to Two-Face's villainy, he knows that he's found his new Robin.
