Richard "Dick" Grayson is the ward of Bruce Wayne and secretly Robin, Bruce's sidekick in his role as Batman.

Dick Grayson was an acrobat in Haly's Circus with his parents. One day, a gangster named Tony Zucco and his brothers threatened the circus and its performers. When the Grayson resisted them, Zucco promised revenge and Batman arrived.

The following day, on the night of their performance, Tony Zucco came before the show and removed two vital lugnuts for the trapeze. When Grayson's parents were doing their stunt, the trapeze gave out and they fell to their deaths.

Dick Grayson was taken in by Bruce Wayne who wanted to make a difference in Grayson's life.
