Alfred Pennyworth was a butler of Wayne Family. After the deaths of Thomas and Martha Wayne he became foster father of orphaned Bruce Wayne. After Bruce became The Batman Alfred was his first ally.

Alfred Pennyworth cleaned Wayne Manor and helped Batman remember to be Bruce Wayne by keeping him notified of his many meetings and by reminding him to be more open to the public.

For two years Batman fought small thugs and Alfred usually just watched him, but when the Joker appeared, it got more serious as then more advanced thugs such as Mr. Freeze, Firefly, Cluemaster, Killer Croc, Catwoman, Man-Bat and Clayface started rousing.

Whenever Batman was on his missions facing villains, Alfred was at the Batwave directing him through and helping him, or dusting the Batcave and creating a gallery of Batman's "souvenirs". Apparently Alfred's grandfather worked for the Cobblepots but was fired, giving him a hatred for the Penguin, especially since this Cobblepot was as obnoxious as his ancestors.

Batman took in new friends, like Batgirl and Robin and Alfred soon learned to care for them just as much as he cared for Bruce. He even told the kids to disobey Batmans order as the joining attacked.
