"Alright, what's the emergency?"
-Nightwing's first line when entering the game.
"I never really got the hang of staying out of trouble."
-Nightwing's second line when entering the game.
As a child, Dick Grayson was part of a circus act known as The Flying Graysons. One night, his parents were murdered during the act. Dick was then adopted by Bruce Wayne, the better known as Batman, who recruited Dick to become his crime-fighting sidekick Robin. After years of serving as Robin and working with Batman and Batgirl, Dick grew tired of being overshadowed and chose to strike out on his own. Around this time, he formed the Teen Titans with other sidekicks and young heroes, such as Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, Cyborg, Raven, Beast Boy, Starfire among others and fought villains such as Deathstroke, Brother Blood, and even Trigon the Terrible. His responsibility as leader of the Titans reached a point where he wasn't able to dedicate time to his other role as Batman's sidekick. After talking with Superman, he learned of the Kryptonian legend of Nightwing, who was a vigilante shunned by his family. Dick adopted the name and retired his Robin mantle, which would be used by Jason Todd later, therefore dedicating himself to be the Titans' leader full-time.
He returned to Gotham for a time where he restarted his working relationships with Batman, though they became rocky since Bruce and Dick had a difficult working relationship, and Barbara was jealous of his short-lived relationship with Huntress. However, Bruce and Dick eventually made amends, and he eventually worked with the new Robin Tim Drake.
Nightwing is a member of the Bat-family which primarily consists of Batman, Robin, Red Hood, Red Robin, Alfred Pennyworth, Batgirl, and Commissioner Gordon. He has joined several incarnations of the Justice League and the Outsiders, as well as occasionally assisting the Birds of Prey and newer line-ups of Teen Titans.
Dick Grayson has also taken on the mantle of Batman when Bruce Wayne was lost in time. This all happened before the New 52 started and it soon ended once Bruce came back to get the mantle back in his ownership.
In the New 52 when the Crime Syndicate came from their Earth, they exposed Nightwing's identity. In an attempt to stop the Syndicate, Batman and Lex Luthor fakes Dick Grayson's death. Unable to return to being Nightwing, he became a secret agent working for Spyral.
In Rebirth, Dick Grayson returned to the mantle of Nightwing. However, Grayson was later shot in the head, and is currently suffering from amnesia. He does not remember ever being Nightwing, or even knowing anyone from his past. He also goes by Ric instead of Dick.
