Arkham City Bio
After a varied career, Alfred Pennyworth was employed as the Wayne family's butler. When Bruce Wayne's parents were killed, Alfred raised the young orphan and reluctantly aided him in his quest to become the Batman.
Alfred's many skills-ranging from cooking to combat medicine- make him Batman's staunchest ally, along with a formal demeanor that grounds the Dark Knight and deflects those who might otherwise suspect Bruce Wayne's true identity.

Additional Information
Alfred Pennyworth did not want to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather and become a gentleman's gentleman. After stints as a field medic in the Royal Marines and as an intelligence agent with MI6, Alfred explored his true love, acting. He entered service as a butler to the Royal Family to honour a final request from his father before he died. The Wayne family of Gotham City hired Alfred to become their personal valet shortly before the birth of their son, Bruce. Due to the circumstances of the Wayne's deaths and the vast wealth left to their only son, special dispensation was given for Bruce to be raised by Alfred.
Conflicted, Alfred tried to both discourage and support the adolescent Bruce's desire for training and the obsession that lead him to become Batman. Alfred is the only person in his inner cirlce who Bruce will allow to use firearms defensively. Now Alfred is invaluable in Bruce's war on crime as mechanic, tailor, cook, medic, detective and as a smokescreen to cover his dual-identity.

Possible role in Arkham 3
Continued support from the Batcave, possibly including an onscreen meeting.

I think it would be really cool to actually see Alfred in the next game. Why wasn't the posting of this profile more announced though? It doesn't look like anyone else has seen it even though it was released Dec 13...

That's a chance of appearing. Since we didn't actually see him in the last game, I only gave it a low score. 6/10 reflects that he probably will be involved, even if we don't see him.

Alfred should be a main character in it so we can see him.

I really do want to see Alfred on screen, even if it's just a cameo, he's too awesome not to include.

One of my favorite Batman characters. Has a good voice actor in Arkham City. Would like to actually see him in person in the next game (same with Oracle).

Oh that would be awesome. Just Hush casually walking into Wayne Manor when Bruce is out, and interrogating Alfred, then finding out Batman=Bruce Wayne.

8/10

I certainly see Alfred making a return via vocal support from the batcave, but also think we will see him get some screen time in Arkham 3 as I believe wayne manor will be more involved(considering they made it a dlc combat and predator challenge in Arkham City)
