Bruce is a trained acrobat and is able to hop from roof to roof for hours without ever getting tired. He has trained and mastered every single martial arts form known to man.

Throughout the years Bruce has honed and harnessed intimidation and interrogation techniques throughout Gotham. People all around the world are afraid of him and he uses this as a weapon against any of his enemies. Through his training Bruce has become a master of stealth and uses this also to instill fear into his enemies.

Personality: Batman is a dark and grim hero with a personal vendetta against criminals. Traumatized by the death of his parents, Batman has sworn to rid Gotham from the criminal elements that took his parents from him. He is very paranoid and obsessive, which often makes it difficult for him to trust other people that aren't Alfred, the Robins, or the Batgirls.

Despite this, Batman has proved to have a great love for humanity, which was instilled by his parents. His father was a doctor, while his mother was a crusader against child abuse. Indeed, Batman's oath of vengeance is tempered with the greater ideal of justice. He refrains from killing, as he feels this would not make him any better than the criminals he fights. He is also a very prominent member of the Justice League and the founder of the Outsiders.

To protect his secret identity, Batman has constructed a fake persona he can use in his civilian identity. To the world at large, Bruce Wayne is a self-absorbed, superficial, irresponsible playboy and philanthropist. Only his closest allies know that this attitude is just an act.

Strengths: Batman is brave and has an indomitable will. He is a natural leader, tactician, and athlete. (Read skills for more)

History: Bruce Wayne was born the billionaire son of Thomas and Martha Wayne. One night, when Bruce was eight, after leaving a movie, Bruce's parents were mugged and murdered by Joe Chill, leaving Bruce an orphan. Due to this, Bruce decided to start a masked quest against crime in Gotham. At the age of 14 Bruce went on a journey that lasted until he was 23, where he trained from the best detectives, martial artists, and vigilantes in the world. After returning, Bruce created the Batman persona and began his war on crime.

A year into being Batman, Bruce watched Dick Grayson's parents fall to their deaths at Haly's Circus. Bruce, wanting the boy to not have to go through what he did, adopted the young Dick Grayson. Only a month after adopting the boy, Dick discovered Bruce's batcave and forced Bruce to let him join his war on crime. He became the first Robin, Boy Wonder. A little later Batman helped form the Justice League during Starro's Invasion of Earth. Soon after that, Barbara Gordon, the Commissioner's daughter, created the Batgirl persona and became accepted by Batman and Robin and fought crime.

Sadly, in later years, Barbara as crippled by a shot to her spine from the Joker. She became the superhero community's information broker, Oracle. Dick and Bruce argued and Dick left Bruce to become the independent hero Nightwing. Shortly after this Bruce took in a troubled boy named Jason Todd, who became the second Robin. A couple of years later, Jason was killed by the Joker.

After going through a phase of depression and random bursts of anger, fifteen-year-old Tim Drake had to join Bruce's life to keep him from doing anything rash as the third Robin. Cassandra Cain, a mute ex-member of the League of Shadows became the second Batgirl during this time. Eventually, after facing a revived Jason Todd and being temporarily crippled by Bane, Bruce went on a journey around the world with Dick, Tim and Alfred, his butler and father-figure. A year later Bruce returned to fighting crime and discovered a son he had sired with Talia Al Ghul a decade previously, Damian. But almost as soon as Bruce met his son, he faced and died at the hands of Darkseid. But, in fact, Bruce wasn't dead, only trapped in an endless time warp. Dick took over for Bruce as Batman during his absence and made the misguided Damian his Robin. Tim became the vigilante Red Robin.

Soon after, Bruce returned, Dick became Nightwing again, and together, the Batman Family started Batman Incorporated: a world-wide plan to let every nation have a Batman. Shortly after founding this, Bruce faced the threat of Nobody and Leviathon, but managed to overcome them. And, during this time, Bruce discovered and fought the Court of Owls, only to find out his 'dead' brother Thomas Wayne Jr. was the head of it all. After defeating Thomas, whose fate is currently unknown, Bruce continues on as Batman, fighting against injustice in Gotham and now the world.

Sample RP The Dark Knight soared from rooftop to rooftop, looking for his newest prey. In a city like Gotham it only takes a minute to find some sort of evil deed being done, and indeed in exactly 57 seconds Bruce was perched over a rooftop, looking down at a mugging below. A woman, rich, Batman presumed, due to her expensive attire, had been returning home from work when a large African American man had suddenly grabbed her and pulled her into an alley. When she stopped screaming and looked up, she noticed she was surrounded by an entire gang of criminals. The one who started the mugging was armed with a gun. Three others were armed with knives, and the last two had baseball bats.

It took Batman ten seconds to take out every one of the thugs. In the first two seconds Batman determined what the best first move to make was. Three seconds in, the armed criminal was unconscious, a tranquilizer batarang sticking out of his neck. After four seconds the first man with a knife was lying on the floor, The Dark Knight standing over him. Five seconds and the other two gang bangers armed with knives were taken out by a swift kick to the head. Six seconds and the last two criminals realized what had just happened. Seven, they turn around. Eight, they take their first step. Nine, Batman smiles. Ten, the two criminals walk right over a trip line that activates a net trap that suspends them upside-down in the air.

And in just another second Batman is gone again, looking for his next prey.
