Bruce Wayne

"I just want to do my duty as a proud citizen of this fair community."

Bruce Wayne is Gotham's top philanthropist.

He is an international sportsman, and enjoys spelunking and falconry. These skills often come in handy when fighting crime. Bruce has many hobbies, such as collecting antlers, stamps and antique pocket watches. Even as a child he was a skilled individual. When he was 11 years old he was the Junior Marble Champion of Gotham City. The one thing he cannot abide is being called a coward.

Dick has many hobbies to pass the long afternoons in Wayne Manor, such as his tuba and piano lessons, and also his bird calls.
