Full History Given Below RPG Stats. Deathwing could have been a great Nightwing villain, but the current powers that be at DC Comics seem content to forget he ever existed. Too bad. He started off as a very interesting idea.

|History: “Richard” hails from our timeline, but he was taken by the Time Trapper to a possible future timeline where Lord Chaos ruled over all. The Time Trapper planned for Richard to be a “sleeper agent” of his, ready to take part in the coming crisis dubbed Zero Hour. Implanted with false memories, Richard believed that he was Richard Grayson, leader of the so-called Team Titans of that era. Alongside his partner, the young girl known as Red Wing, Richard (calling himself Nightwing) helped lead the rebellion against the forces of Chaos.
Nightwing became romantically involved with a young woman named Mirage, though he always made it clear that he still loved Starfire, who had been missing for ten years in that timeline. When the Team Titans came to the present to prevent their horrible future from occurring, Nightwing followed them to this time period – not knowing, of course, that this was his native era. Nightwing soon fell under the sway of Dark Raven, the former Titan who had become possessed by the demonic heritage of her father, Trigon. Richard was driven insane by the experience and dubbed himself “Deathwing.”
Deathwing located his lover, Mirage, and brutally raped her. He tried to kill her, in fact, but was prevented in this attempt by the Team Titans. Deathwing became increasingly sadistic and frightening, aiding Dark Raven in her attempts to destroy the Titans. Learning that Mirage was pregnant with his child, Deathwing kidnapped her and hoped to raise the child himself. His crime spree was ended when the Titans defeated Dark Raven and placed Deathwing in suspended animation in hopes of finding a cure for his madness.
Should he ever escape, Deathwing could be a deadly foe — almost as talented as the real Dick Grayson, but far more savage. Finding his child would be one of his paramount concerns.
