Special Notes

Relationships with His Adopted Brothers;

-Tim and Dick

Dick and Tim have a close brotherly bond. Dick was the only person who supported Tim when he wanted to become Robin. Dick helped Tim ease into the role and helped him with Bruce’s distant manner. Dick treats Tim as a little brother, They make a brilliant crime fighting team, their tight bond started when Bruce broke his back. Although Azreal was originally chosen to take the mantle, after difficulties with him Bruce gave the mantle to the man who should have gotten it in the first place Dick Grayson, the brotherly bond flourishes.

Dick is very protective over him. After the Joker pretended to kill Tim, Nightwing went out on a personal vendetta to catch the Joker. When he took down the Joker’s criminal army in a fit of rage he beat the Joker to death with his bare hands and didn't stop until he saw that Tim was still very much alive, the Joker is resuscitated [brought back to life] by Huntress.

Tim wanted to use the Lazarus pit to bring back his father, Spoiler and Superboy. Tim and Nightwing spar; Nightwing was holding back, because he was only trying to calm Tim down from making a misguided decision, while Tim was emotional and angry at the loss of his loved ones. I-Ching steps in and spars with both, and is clearly a better martial artist than either, as he is apparently holding back as well. Dick gave Tim the option of taking samples from the pit, but at the last second he decides against it and collapses to the floor. Dick catches him and cradle’s him.

The two are still extremely close and whenever Tim is in trouble or has problems with Bruce he always seems to go to Dick. The two are now officially brothers. Bruce adopted Tim after his father died. Dick and Tim's bond was somewhat shaken by the apparent "death" of Bruce and Dick becoming Batman while also making Damian the fifth Robin. Tim resents the fact that he has been 'replaced' by a homicidal child, but Dick explains that he views Tim as a partner and an equal, not a sidekick and that he chose Damian as the new Robin to keep an eye on him and keep him from killing again. Dick also shows concern over Tim's obsession with the possibility of Bruce's survival and is very reluctant to let Tim leave Gotham but they later reconcile when Tim returns home with both proof that Bruce has survived and Ra's Al Ghul preparing to launch an attack on the Batman family.

-Tim and Jason

Tim and Jason have a hatred for each other. When Jason returned he managed to get behind Tim and questioned Bruce's decision of replacing him with a 'pretender'.

Jason would later break into the Titan's Tower and sees that there wasn't a statue of him in memorial even though he was a Teen Titan although for a brief time. Angered that he didn't get a statue, Jason and Tim fight. Jason manages to beat Tim and leaves the message "Jason Todd was here" written in Tim's blood. Afterward, Jason does admit that Tim is good and begins a begrudging respect for the new boy wonder.

During the absence of Batman, Tim encounters Jason, now as Red Hood while dealing with a gang and a person donning the Red Robin costume During the fight, Jason was shot in the leg and was arrested by the police. Sometime later, Tim Drake helped Jason get out of jail because he knew that it was what Bruce would have wanted. Jason is let back into the cave to listen to a final message left by Bruce. Helping Jason out of jail seemed to improve their relationship.

However it would not last, as Jason would shortly after begin attacking and murdering criminals while dressed as Batman. Tim would be the first to discover the identity of this new murderous "Batman" and attack him in his lair. During which Tim beats Jason with a crowbar,while Jason stabs him with a batarang and leaves Tim to die in an explosion.

-Tim and Damian

Tim and Damian share an antagonistic relationship and an intense loathing of each other, fighting on a number of occasions. On their very first meeting, Tim attempted to make friends with the angry and violent Damian. Damian threatened him, thinking that Tim had usurped his position as Batman's son and later fights him in an attempt to replace him as Batman's partner, nearly killing Tim in the process. Later when Damian's life has come under threat from his grandfather Ra's Al Ghul, Tim attacks him under the belief that Damian has come to kill him and Alfred. Then during the events of the "death" of Batman, Damian reluctantly saves Tim's life after being critically wounded in a fight with Jason Todd.

When Dick assumes the mantle of Batman, he selects Damian to be his Robin instead of Tim, Damian gloats and flaunts his new position and costume in front of Tim at every opportunity. It is when Damian's mocking suggestion that Tim start using the Batgirl costume that causes Tim to snap and punch him in the face. Tim then gets ready to leave Gotham with the Red Robin costume on a quest to prove Bruce's survival but before he leaves town, Tim makes a request to Dick not to let Damian destroy the legacy of Robin that he and Tim had built. Then even after Tim's return to Gotham as the Red Robin some months later, Damian still continues to insult and threaten Tim's life at every chance (even though Tim stated he has always held back fighting Damian) they engage in battle again, with Tim easily defeating Damian.

Personal History

Tim Drake is the son of Jack and Janet Drake. When he was a child, he visited the circus with his parents. The Drakes managed to get a photo with the Graysons before the show, the night Tim Drake met Dick Grayson for the first time was also the night when Dick Grayson's parents died.

Tim Drake had followed Batman and Robin's career ever since the murder of the Flying Graysons. He had excellent detective skills which helped him discover the identities of the dynamic duo. One day, he saw the original Robin on television performing a move Dick Grayson had executed the night he went to the circus with his parents. He quickly made the connection that Dick Grayson was Robin and after learning that Dick Grayson was the ward of Bruce Wayne, he realized that Bruce Wayne was Batman.

After the death of Jason Todd, Batman grew more violent and reckless. Tim noticed that this wasn't in Batman’s true character, and he sought out the help of Dick Grayson. At this time, Dick had been going by the code-name Nightwing. Tim tried to convince Dick to retake the mantle of Robin, saying it was the only way to keep Batman sane. Dick agreed to this, but said that he would only help Batman as Nightwing. Tim did not like Dick’s decision and continued to argue that Batman needed Robin. Eventually, he was able to get Alfred to assist in altering the Robin costume so that he could help Batman himself. Alfred and Dick gave Tim their approval as the new Robin, but only so he could keep Batman sane. However, Batman protested that he did not want a new partner but also added “The boy has potential.” Eventually, Batman skeptically accepted Tim as Robin but under one condition: Tim had to endure physical and mental training from Bruce before he could become Robin so that he would not suffer the same fate as Jason Todd.

While Tim was still training, his parents Jack and Janet Drake were kidnapped by a mysterious stranger. Tim continued to focus on his work and foiled the plans of a hacker thief. Meanwhile, Batman went to rescue Tim’s parents. However, Batman arrived too late. Tim's parents were poisoned. His mother had died, and his father fell into a deep coma. With the tragedy that Tim and his parents went through, Batman became worried that Tim might go down the road of vengeance, and it would cloud his judgment. However, Tim proved Batman wrong when he saved Batman and Vicki Vale from the Scarecrow. Afterwards, Batman allowed Tim to take on the mantle of the Boy Wonder and gave him a more modern version of the costume.
