Ex-Robin, was Dead and now he's not.


Jason Todd is dead. This isn't a secret. Google can even bring up the obituary. But some know better than to believe such things.%r%rThe Red Hood is a criminal, killer, ans thief. Sometimes, though, he actually kills those society deems as 'bad guys'.


Not everyone 'chosen' by Batman is a kid from a stable, happy family. Sometimes a kid is chosen because, when they found themselves facing Batman, they actually fought and lasted…for all of six seconds. Sometimes the kid was on his own because his mom died of an overdose (more on that) and his dad died in prison, a criminal. He didn't have parents who gave a crap about him. He was a mistake made by two troublemaking teenagers. Not everyone can be a poncy acrobat wearing tights or a braniac computer geek.

Sometimes they're just survivors.

That's pretty much what I did until I was taken under Batman's 'care', if you can call it that. I survived. I survived being born of parents that were too young and too stupid to have a kid, I survived my mom doing drugs and my dad using me as distractions for his gambling or drug dealing or break-ins. I survived being out on my own as a teen in Gotham - no easy feat. I survived six months of intensive Bat-training and I survived being Robin.

I even survived being killed by the Joker.

Well, that last one is a matter of technicality. Maybe I should say I was resurrected from that. I still have nightmares of being beaten into a bloody pulp, seeing the Joker standing over me with a crowbar. That's what I remember. The next thing I was awake, floating in some sort of not-water and I was alive.

I was dressed and brought before the leader of the All Caste and despite pissing her off in all of 6 seconds (a record) she agreed to train me. I was given a second chance, I was told.

Funny thing is, no one ever tried to lecture me about right and wrong - maybe because I was drowned in it by the Bats. I couldn't really say how long I was there, but eventually I decided to leave. Well, it was more of a mutual separation, but it was time for me to move on. To get back in the world, but this time on MY terms.

Character Details

The Red Hood is a realist. Sometimes you have to make things happen if no one else is doing it. Sometimes that means people get hurt. That's life

It's not random though, not usually. If someone's going to be stupid enough to get in his way, they might just get a bullet put through them or their trachea crushed, but it's not always about random killing. In fact, it's all much more logical than that.

Oddly enough, he has a code that he lives by. Mostly. Don't hurt him and he won't hurt you…unless you're getting in his way. He keeps his promises. He protects those he cares for, even if they don't always know who they are. He can be decent, almost charming, witty, snarky, and even has a sense of humor. He can also be cold, calculating, and merciless.

It really all depends on the situation.
