Alfred Pennyworth is Bruce Wayne's loyal butler who assists his employer in his duties, both as Bruce Wayne and as the Batman. He had previously worked for Bruce's parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne, until their deaths.
After Thomas and Martha Wayne were murdered, Alfred did not act as a father toward Bruce, feeling it was not his place, and maintained the distance of a proper English butler. It has been one of his biggest regrets, and his behavior towards Dick is vastly different because of it.
Physical appearance Edit
Alfred is a slim Caucasian male, with gray hair and a mustache. He typically wears a three-piece suit, a black jacket, a maroon vest, and a white long-sleeved shirt with a black tie.
Early life Edit
Alfred had been in the Wayne family's employ since Bruce was a child, and continued to do so even after his parents were murdered.
Alfred reassured Dick that Bruce would devise a plan for the sidekicks, even though two and a half of the demanded three days were up.
Alfred monitored Batman and Robin on their mission in
Cape Canaveral. From the Batcave, he had a full view of the mission through a camera in Batman's cowl.
Alfred checked up on Batman when he was analyzing a
Clayface sample. He wondered if his master had an actual plan, or if he was leaving the dirty work to the Team.
