Dick as Robin

He took on the name of Robin and they patrolled the streets together, taking out any criminal who dared defy them.

Becoming Nightwing[]

When Dick became eighteen, he left Bruce and his Robin persona. He attempted to live a normal life by going to college and dating a girl named Cheyenne Freemont. When he realized that Bludhaven needed it's own Batman, he made a costume and became Nightwing. At first he was known as 'The Batman of Bludhaven' until everyone learned his true name and he was no longer a legend of the night.
