Arkham City Bio
Richard "Dick" grayson was the youngest in a family of acrobats known as the Flying Graysons. Their death-defying act was all that kept the circus where they performed in business. As the people of Gotham clamored for tickets to the show, the mob came looking for their cut. After the circus owner refused them, mobsters killed Dick's parents during a packed performance attended by Bruce Wayne.

Wanting to protect the devastated orphan, Bruce took Dick under his wing and became his legal guardian, eventually entrusting the boy with his greatest secret. Desperate to help his friend and mentor, Dick trained hard to become Robin, patrolling Gotham at Batman's side.

Now an adult, Dick fights crime on his own as the vigilante called Nightwing.

Additional Information
This young acrobat saw his parents plummet to their deaths after mobsters sabotaged the trapeze rigging. Bruce Wayne took him on as his ward (and later adopted him) and he soon became the Boy Wonder.
They worked together for years until, at 18, he quit being Batman's partner, started working with the New Teen Titans full-time and changed his costumed identity to Nightwing.
As Nightwing he really hit new heights, he had his own city (Blüdhaven) to protect and was generally looked up to by everyone in the DCU. Taking a job in the Bluüdhaven Police Department, Dick sought to root out the corruption from with and to clean up the city day and night.

Possible role in Arkham 3
The perfect back-up for Batman, they fight together 'like a well oiled machine'. Nightwing is an all-rounder, but he excels at parkour-like acrobatics. Perhaps a character exclusive free-running pursuit mission in the challenge rooms would be the best place for him?

Essential reading
Robin: Year One, Batman Chronicles: The Gauntlet, Nightwing: A Knight in Blüdhaven, Batman: Black Mirror

If I think it is just in Challenge mode, then I'll state it in their 'role', otherwise it is for the main story. Though it is just my opinion.

Good Read Red_Robin, Nightwing is my joint 2nd favourite challenge mode character with Robin, Batman is my 1st, I hope he appears in Arkham 3 with Robin, hopeful with some Story missions.

Somehow, I honestly dont expect him to appear in A3.

I always prefer Batman working alone, and too many allies is overwhelming. Robin is enough for me.

I hope Nightwing will be in the story, something like Catwoman in Arkham City

They could seriously replace Catwoman and take any other character as extra story dlc and nobody would be complaining. So long as theyborrow a few tricks from AC, Azrael wouldn't look half bad!

His moves are excellent in Arkham City, I get really good combat scores with him but Robin is funner to play as and if they were to choose either or I would say Rocksteady would pick Robin over Nightwing for a campaign mission (or they could use both I guess) however I love your idea of Nightwing in a free running pursuit.

As long he gets a voice actor, I wouldn't care if it was a cameo.

i'd like Nightwing to get a DLC were he has his own story and we see Deathstroke, Nite-Wing and Jason Todd as boss fights.
