Alfred Pennyworth is the trusted butler of Bruce Wayne and the Wayne Family, making him Batman's manservant. Having worked for Thomas and Martha Wayne before they were murdered, he raised young Bruce from an early age. His responsibilities include attending to Batman and making sure he can properly function, as well as looking after the Batcave and Wayne Manor. Always the perfect gentleman, Alfred is loyal and faithful, although not afraid to criticize his employer when he deserves it. His experience in the military has given him combat and medical training, and he was also a noted stage actor in his time. He was originally named Alfred Beagle. Alfred is an important member of the Batman Family and has been the leader of the Outsiders.

Alfred was created by Don C. Cameron and Bob Kane, first appearing in Batman #16 (1943).
