"I made a promise on the grave of my parents to rid the city of the evil that took their lives. By day, I am Bruce Wayne, billionaire philanthropist. At night, criminals, a cowardly and superstitious lot, call me... Batman."

-Bruce Wayne, Oath of Vengence







Name: Bruce Wayne
Alias: Batman, The Dark Knight, The Caped Crusader
Age: 29
Gender: Male
Species: Human
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 210 lbs
Hair: Black
Eyes: Blue

Physical Description:
Bruce is a body builder, he's usually the tallest in a room. His back and chest is littered with scars from past battles, though he has a clean face free of scars, he keeps it well maintained for the public, as Wayne is a world famous name. Bruce Wayne's intimidating structure is usually off put by his warm smile, although it comes in good use when the Batman is interrogating a criminal.

Gear/Clothes:

Batsuit:
The costume Batman wears is composed of reinforced Kevlar and a small percentage of titanium; it's bullet-proof and resistant to various types of attack (explosions, impacts, falls, etc...). The chests matte black Bat Symbol is extra bullet proof, with a ballistic material and acts as a target for foes to aim at. It's also flame-retarding and insulating. The gloves and the boots are reinforced to rebound the impact of punches and kicks. The interior of his glove has a memory foam which could act as a lock pick in case he can't get to his utility belt. The gauntlets have also some metallic blades on their sides to catch blades, keep his cape away from his body, and in dire situations scale a wall. The cape is designed to provide the wearer with controlled gliding functionality with the ability to change directions and heights while in mid-air. The mask has a little percentage of lead, which shields the face of Batman from x-ray powers or x-ray technology, and incorporates an infrared and night visor, auditory sensors and a sonar. The mask is accessorized with some security systems (aggravating gas, electric blasts, etc.), like the utility belt to prevent a stranger taking off his mask, and integrates a transmitter receiver device via voice and video.

Utility Belt:
Batman's Utility belt wraps around his waist and most if not all of Batman's equipment including smoke bombs, gas pellets, brass knuckles, batarangs, grapnel hooks, etc. The center has a concealed button which brings his batmobile to his location. The utility belt use to be larger, but Batman decided to opt for mobility rather than gadgets.

Batrope:
The Batrope (or Bat-line) is a length of monofilament wire attached to a spool, and concealed within a special compartment on Batman's utility belt. It is used primarily for scaling the sides of buildings and ensnaring targets. Although not the most glamorous item in Batman's crime-fighting arsenal, it is doubtless one of his more useful tools, and comes in handy when rooftop patrolling is more expeditious than conveyance.

Batarang:
Batman's most used form of silent long range attacks, he has multiple different batarangs for different occasions and keeps them stored in his utility belt and gauntlets and fold in half for easy access. He has explosive charge batarangs, enough to take down a weak wall, sonic batarangs, paralysis educing batarangs. The edges are sharp enough to double as knives in the event of emergency and can cut through his own bat-line.

Batmobile:
The Batmobile is probably the most powerful vehicle in Gotham, it's silent, fast, and armed to the teeth with offensive and defensive weaponry including various cannons, mini-guns, and heat seeking missiles. The armor of the batmobile is nearly indestructible. Layered with plates of titanium and high carbon steel, it can take more punishment than an average tank. The Batmobile can easily crush anything in it's way and adapt to the surrounding terrain. In the event that it's submerged in water, it can deploy multiple floats and it becomes amphibious.

Abilities

Indefatigable Will:
Although he has no superhuman powers, Batman's unstoppable determination and strength of will make him an extremely formidable opponent. This makes him able to function while tolerating massive amounts of physical pain, and also allows him to resist telepathy or mind control. His willpower is strong enough to operate a Green Lantern Ring when necessary. He is known for rising up to the circumstance should an emergency arise.

Intimidation:
It is widely known that Batman has the ability to instill fear in others, even the people that know him best are intimidated by him. Even those who aren't afraid of the likes of Superman fear Batman. It's because of Batman's sense of justice that he'd do anything for the greater good, that he can accomplish this; he has even intimidated Darkseid into submission once.

Interrogation:
Batman is adept in interrogation techniques, often using law enforcement methods as well as torture. Several methods seen include hanging a person over the edge of a building by one leg or chaining a person upside down and beating them. He usually just plain uses his frightening appearance to get answers.

Leadership:
Though he doesn't know it yet, Batman is a natural born leader, with training that exceeds military standards. He he an excellent tactician and warrior, always thinking ahead of his opponent.

Investigation:
With genius level intellect, Batman has earned the right of The World's Greatest Detective. Molding his brain into a super mind, he is capable of observation, forensic investigation, and inductive and deductive reasoning of the highest caliber. Along with Human intuition as an unlearnable trait, he also developed a photographic memory, and they are Batman's most effective tools. Given any mystery, he can arrive at the correct conclusions with a fraction of the data.

Master of Stealth:
Living in the shadows, Batman can sneak through heavily guarded facilities unnoticed, he has been known to even sneak and surprise the likes of Superman who has enhanced hearing.

Multilingual:
He is able to speak Spanish, French, Latin, German, Japanese, English, Russian, Cantonese, Mandarin, Greek, Portuguese, Arabic, Sanskrit, Hindi, Thai and possibly more.

Physical:

Through intense training, specialized diet, and biofeedback treatments, Batman represents the pinnacle of human physical prowess. His physical attributes exceeded that of any Olympic level athlete that has ever completed. Strength, speed, stamina, agility, reflexes and coordination are at peak human perfection. Batman began his physical and mental conditioning when he was 11 and then intense physical training and weight lifting at age 12. He has mastered full body control by the time he was 18. Bruce Wayne, since the age of 15, has created a strict diet to enable his body to develop and operate at its most proficient, along with biofeedback treatments (using portable/non portable machines to stimulate muscles to contraction).

Batman has performed amazing physical feats due to his superior physique, taking down a tree with one kick is something he trained by masters of martial arts all around the world. He engaged in an intensive regular regimen of rigorous exercise (including aerobics, weight lifting, gymnastics, and simulated combat) to keep himself in peak condition, and has often defeated opponents whose size, strength, or other powers greatly exceeded his own. He has spent his entire life in pursuit of physical perfection and has attained it through constant intensive training and determination. It is shown that Batman can bench at least 1000lbs.

Trained highly in nearly every deadly form of martial art, including of Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Muay Thai, Dragon Style Kung Fu, Boxing, Jujitsu, and Ninjitsu, he is quite literally a human weapon. Also trained proficiently in gymnastics and aerobics, Batman can vault himself and scale obstetrical at an almost superhuman speed.

Personality:

Stoic by nature, Batman endures and most and all pain that has numbed him since the death of his parents. Usually quiet, he mulls thoughts in his head where he works best. When talking, he is curt and to the point, rarely showing interest in another party. His allies are few and his personality shows it, as he doesn't trust anyone accept for Alfred with his secret identity as The Batman. To protect his secret identity, Batman has constructed a fake persona he can use in his civilian identity. To the world at large, Bruce Wayne is a self-absorbed, superficial, irresponsible playboy, and philanthropist, blowing all of his parent's wealth on girls, booze, and other pleasures in life. Though he can bring up the charms when he needs to he can also get political and find himself at Policemen's Balls or Town Hall Meetings for the improvement of Gotham.

The Dark Knight is grim, and takes crime on a personal level. Despite this, Batman has proved to have a great love for humanity, which was instilled by his parents. His father was a doctor, while his mother was a crusader against child abuse. Indeed, Batman's oath of vengeance is tempered with the greater ideal of justice. He refrains from killing, as he feels this would not make him any better than the criminals he fights. His moral code doesn't however stop him from making his victims feel like he will kill them, though he always knows how far he can go before he takes a life.

Bruce has come to the conclusion that Bruce Wayne is his mask, and the Batman is who he truly is. Batman figures he hasn't been a boy since he was 8 years old, all the feeling leaving his body, and replaced with a numbness that won't go away. Paranoia and obsessiveness crept in and stayed for the long haul. Being an orphan made him somewhat of a collector, because he lost so much, he feels the need to hold on to what he can. Batman also sympathizes with children, it could also cause a blind spot for him if a child is involved. He becomes obsessed with the case until everything is resolved.

It is said best that Batman is fighting so no one could feel the pain that he has felt. A hero who wishes he never came to be.

History:
Bruce Wayne was 8 years old when his parents were gunned down in front of him, since then he was no longer a boy. Determined, he made a vow to rid the city of evil that took his parents from him. Immediately training both his body and mind, he was shooting himself through life with only one goal in mind. He took apart calculators to know how it worked, place his hands over fire to learn to tolerate the pain, he grew up hopping from school to school, traveling around the world to seek the most trained fighters, detectives, and shooters, to become the best possible human alive.

The determination that drove him consumed him, and he didn't stop for 18 years until finally returning back to Gotham. At 26, Bruce continued his training in solace, making a foundation in the caves near Wayne Manor, calling it his Batcave as it was infested with vampire bats. As the weeks turned into months he decided to go into the city and scout the area.

On his first scout, he got into a fight, which cops came to the scene soon after and put a bullet into his shoulder. The first of many scars. Bruce escaped the cops after busting out of their cop car despite being handcuffed and bleeding out. He arrived back at his manor, confused with his results, he needed a way to make them scared from the start. Resting in his father's study, looking upon his portrait, a bat came crashing through the window, this was when he decided he would become a bat.

Wayne designed himself a costume equipped with experimental technology and set out against the crime and corruption that thrived in Gotham City. Wayne's tactics to oppose crime as a vigilante at night proved successful leading him to become an urban legend in Gotham City. He would reveal himself at a dinner of the most influential and corrupt figures in Gotham City promising them all that their reigns on the city would eventually end.

Batman's first ally is assistant district attorney Harvey Dent. Most of the Gotham City Police Department is sent in force to capture him. He gained his most powerful ally when he met police lieutenant James Gordon, one of the few honest cops on the force. The two developed a working relationship operating outside of the law when they needed to.

Batman's presence in Gotham City generated a new breed of criminals, no longer the simple thugs and gangsters involved in Gotham Organized Crime, but more dynamic personalities. The first person inspired by him was Catwoman, a dangerous seductress using his style and methods towards her own ends.

One night, he chased a felon known as The Red Hood into Ace Chemicals. Red Hood accidentally fell into the toxic waste and bathed in the chemicals until he was flushed out into the Gotham Harbor, and came back as The Joker, who threatened to poison Gotham's water supply. More villains crept out from the shadows, some simply to challenge the Bat, others out of revenge, which ever the case, old money began to die out, and masks began to take over.

It was during this time when the mob was being picked off by a Holiday Killer that started a chain of events the newspapers called "The Long Halloween" where the dying mobs struggled to stay alive in a losing battle. During a court case against one of the head bosses in the rivaling Italian Mob Sal "The Boss" Maroni flung acid into Harvey Dent's face, turning him into the troubled villain Two-Face. Dent was driven to madness and his determination to end The Long Halloween came to a close when he murdered Carmine "The Roman" Falcone. Dent turned himself in, and The Batman disappeared once again from the minds of those in Gotham.

To this point, people are still unsure if The Batman is real or not, as he has been very careful of revealing himself to the public, though there have been sightings they have been few and far in between. After the loss of Harvey Dent as a friend and ally, he has found it harder and harder to put the suit back on, unless there is serious trouble.
