Timothy Drake was the only son of Jack and Janet Drake and was raised in a wealthy household.

As a small boy, Tim was taken to Haly's Circus, where he met D*ck Grayson and the Flying Graysons, the same day as their deaths, which he witnessed and would never forget.

Years later, Tim saw footage of Batman and Robin apprehending the Penguin and noticed Robin's unique acrobatics, which reminded him of D*ck Grayson. Making use of impressive deductive abilities, Tim pieced together the truth behind Batman and Robin's identities and followed their careers very closely. Tim even noticed Grayson's change of identity to Nightwing and Jason Todd becoming the second Robin.

At the age of 13, after the death of Jason at the hands of the Joker, Tim, from his observations, noticed a change in Batman's personality, who was grieving over his failure, and went on a quest to reunite Batman and Nightwing, hoping to return the Dynamic Duo back to basics. When D*ck refused to give up his new position to once again work as Robin, Tim volunteered to become the newest Robin, but Batman refused.

However, when Batman and Nightwing found themselves trapped in a situation with Two-Face, Tim donned the Robin costume and, with Alfred's help from the Batcave, managed to rescue them. Impressed, Batman accepted Tim as the new Robin on a trial basis.

Tim trained for the role over several months - first with Alfred, then Batman, and finally Nightwing.

While training, the Obeah Man captured Tim's parents during a trip to the Caribbean. During the kidnapping, his mother was killed and his father was left with paralysis, despite Batman's help. Tim's father now required the care of a personal nurse Dana Winters.

After assisting in the defeat of the Scarecrow, Batman finally deemed Tim was ready to fulfill his role as the new Robin and was gifted a costume unique from the previous two.

Though finally in costume, Tim had cold feet about his abilities as a crime fighter, but Bruce told him that he had every confidence in Tim being his new partner. Bruce also confided in Tim that he was looking for someone with smarts, not just guts, and Tim had that and more.

However, Tim's training wasn't over, and Bruce had Tim sent overseas on a tour to continue learning. His first stop was Paris, to learn from Rahul Lama, a Chinese martial arts master. In Paris, Tim crossed paths with some thugs working for King Snake, who was himself being shadowed by Lady Shiva.

Tim, Shiva, and a man named Clyde Rawlins all worked together to take down King Snake's heroin trafficking in the area. However, they learned that his operation was much larger and that King Snake was working on weaponizing the Bubonic Plague in Hong Kong.

The group traveled to Hong Kong to stop the operation, and Shiva continued to train with Robin. It was during this time that Time acquired his iconic collapsible fighting staff.

Once they breached King Snake's lair in Hong Kong, Clyde was killed by King Snake. Robin managed to defeat the villain but refused to kill him when Shiva ordered him to. With the day saved, Tim returned to Gotham, ready to take his place alongside Batman.

When he was finally ready for patrol in Gotham, Tim was given specific instructions by Batman that, whenever Tim came across a known killer such as Joker or Two-Face, he was supposed to withdraw and summon help.
