Protect was the one word that filled every aspect of Robin’s life. He and Batman protected the city by night, his team protected the world, Batman protected him, Gordon protected them (kinda). Barbara protected wimpy little Dick Grayson, as did Bruce and Alfred, and Dick protected Wally (cuz who would pick on a science geek when his billionaire best friend was in town?) Hell, he even had Catwoman protecting him from time to time making her his favorite lawbreaker. Dick liked the word, one of his favorites. That didn’t mean he didn’t hate the word sometimes and he really, REALLY, hated the word when it came in the form of Child Protection Services.
Robin hated the CPS. Dick hated the CPS. He just generally HATED the CPS. Ever since his debut as Robin the Boy Wonder, the Dark Squire, official partner to the Dark Knight, the first sidekick, they have been trying to track him down, corner him, and interrogate him on who he was, why Batman was making him go out into danger
