Karl Ranck was a classmate of Tim Drake.
Karl was a jock and bullied the kids he thought were nerds. He initially wanted to like Tim Drake but instead, Tim stuck up for his friends, making Karl think Tim was a nerd too. Shortly after, Karl's car was stolen by the Speedboyz. Later, Karl asked Tim to join him in creating a sort of vigilante group to protect the school from an influx of new students Karl called "gangbangers and hoods." He brought a gun to school to keep them in line. Although Tim was able to get Ranck's father to confiscate his weapon, Karl stole another one from his father and returned to school. There, Karl confronted a group of new students and drew his gun. In the firefight, he was shot and killed by Young El.
