Nightwing

Dick Grayson

Description:

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. Dick Grayson is 5’ 10" (1.78 m) and 175 lbs (79 kg).
Nightwing is a master of a half-dozen martial arts disciplines (including aikido, savate, judo, and capoeira) with an emphasis on aikido, as well as being armed with twin Eskrima sticks made from an unbreakable polymer. He also carries several dozen modified batarangs (called wing-dings) along with de-cel jumplines and gas capsules.
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, French, Spanish, Russian, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Japanese and has some knowledge of Romany, the alien language of Tamaran, and American Sign Language. He is also a brilliant and experienced strategist with superlative leadership skills, having served as leader to the Titans, the Outsiders, and even the Justice League. 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.
Besides his resources as Bruce Wayne’s adopted son and heir apparent, Dick’s parents also left him a trust fund which Lucius Fox turned into a small fortune. Although it is not comparable to Bruce Wayne’s wealth, it has been enough to maintain his Nightwing equipment, purchase the rights to Haly’s Circus (saving Dick’s former home from financial troubles), and secretly buy his former Bl├╝dhaven apartment building at 1013 Parkthorne Avenue.

Bio:

Richard “Dick” Grayson is a member of the Batman Family who has been a superhero most of his life and held several aliases. His parents were the Flying Graysons, acrobats performing with him alongside in the traveling Haly’s Circus. They were tragically murdered by a mobster in Gotham City named Tony Zucco, and millionaire Bruce Wayne adopted him as his legal ward at a very young age. Grayson went through extensive training in martial arts and crimefighting to become the original Robin, Batman’s sidekick. Many years later when he had outgrown the position, he took the name and costume of Nightwing. Jason Todd was his successor, followed by Tim Drake. As an adult he becomes Batman to replace Bruce Wayne during Battle for the Cowl, alongside Damian Wayne as his Robin. Since Bruce’s return they operate simultaneously as part of Batman Incorporated. He was also a founding member and leader of the Teen Titans, and has been on the Outsiders, and currently the Justice League of America.
