Alfred Pennyworth DCnU

Alred Pennyworth is the butler of Bruce Wayne. However, their relationship went much deeper than that. Practically raising Bruce as his own son, Alfred cared for nothing more than Bruce. Therefore, in Bruce's silent brooding life of hate, Alfred acted as one of the sole voices of reason. As such, Alfred came to care for the likes of Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake and Damian Wayne as akin to his own grandchildren.

Biography Edit

At a young age, Alfred Pennyworth had become a well known stage actor in England, a role he sporiadically reprised. Soon after, Pennyworth became an intelligance agent for the British Government. Afterwards, Alfred acted as a war medic, becoming a very skilled surgeon. During this time he had a marriage and a daughter, Julia. The marriage was ot a success and Alfred divorced his wife. Upon the death of his father, Alred took a more calm and casual role as the butler of the Wayne Family in Gotham City. Although he attempted to maintain contact with his daughter through the years, she wanted nothing to do with him.

After the deaths of Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne, Alfred was left to deal with and raise the ten year old Bruce Wayne. Alfred came to love Bruce as he would his own son. Bruce eventually left Gotham, leaving Wayne Manor and Wayne Enterprises in Alfred's control, to study abroad. During this time, Alfred faced several threats in the way of the Kane Family.

Eventually Bruce went missing and was declared dead, though Alfred did not stop believing. Alfred's suspicions proved to be true as Bruce eventually did return, only to inform Alfred his plans for vigilantism. Despite Alfred's pleas, Bruce refused to "return from the dead" or even inhabit Wayne Manor, instead living in a brownstone at Crime Alley. Despite his disapproval, Alfred continued to support Bruce until the two had a fight, resulting in Pennyworth promptly returning to Wayne Manor. Soon after, a bloody and injured Bruce crawled up to the Manor, resulting in a worrisome Alfred patching him up and making amends after Bruce had woken up. When Bruce decided on becoming the Batman did Alfred relent, as Bruce's new vigilante tactics proved to be more useful against criminals.

To the likes of Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake and Damian Wayne, Alfred acted as a grandfather-esque figure. Alfred experienced great sorrow when Jason and Damian were murdered and nearly had his heart broken when Dick was presumed dead. Despite his depressed state, having lost three boys he considered to be his grandchildren, Alfred continued to work. Alfred himself mostly never experienced true physical harm, just emotional tragedy, while being the "Butler of the Batman". The only two who had ever injured Alfred during this time were Simon Hurt and the Joker. This all changed when Bruce brought Julia to the mansion. Trying to deal with Tim Drake and handle Julia, Alfred was brutally attacked by Hush and dosed with Fear Toxin to the brain.
