"It's high time you realize that you are a man, not an island. And a man's strength comes not from just brawn and intelligence, but also from his allies."

Alfred Pennyworth is the trusted butler of Bruce Wayne and the Wayne family, as well as Batman's manservant. His responsibilities include attending to Batman and making sure he can properly function, as well as looking after the Batcave and Wayne Manor. Always the perfect gentleman, Alfred is loyal and faithful and Bruce Wayne’s most trusted friend, ally and mentor, a noble guardian and father figure.


After a varied career, Alfred was employed as the Wayne family's butler when Thomas and Martha Wayne were killed. Alfred raised a young orphaned Bruce Wayne and reluctantly aided him in his quest to become the Batman. His many skills–ranging from cooking to medicine–have made him Batman's staunchest ally, along with a formal demeanor that grounds the Dark Knight and deflects those who might otherwise suspect Bruce Wayne's true identity.[1]
