“I know what you think of me. You think I’m just a doll. A doll that’s pink and light. A doll you can arrange anyway you like. You’re wrong. Very wrong.” - Gotham City Sirens

Various Damian Wayne Headcanons
  • Since he came back from the dead Damian finds  it extremely hard to sleep without listening to something. His iPod has mostly audiobooks and classical music or opera, but there’s also some jazz, blues, and alternative recommended by Dick, hard rock, rap, and metal that Jason and Tim snuck on there (they believe that even Damian deserves to hear some good music) and pop from Stephanie. 
  •  Damian was raised bilingual (as well as learning eight major languages) and is equally comfortable in English and Arabic. Bruce’s Arabic can be stilted at times, but he’s fluent enough to not have to stop when Damian switches languages mid-conversation.
  • Damian has a schoolboy crush on Cassandra, which everybody except for Damian finds adorable.
  • Damian is very sensitive to refined sugar and detests dishes he deems too sweet. Alfred’s shortbread—more buttery than sweet and melting in the mouth—is the only dessert he really likes, although he’s grown to appreciate Pistachio ice cream.
  • Tim and Damian hadn’t spoken to each other for a while when the incident with the drones took place. Damian can’t remember if they were on good terms or not.
  • For all the flack he gives him, Damian actually holds Jason in high esteem, a fact he’s not willing to admit.
  • Dick was the first one to crack “Damian Code”: when Damian’s scared he yells, when he’s upset he breaks or throws things, when he feels disrespected or ignored he attacks, when he’s comfortable he insults, and when he’s tired he sulks.
  • Superman thinks that Damian is adorable and hilarious, which means that Batman has to regularly check that Damian doesn’t have any kryptonite.
  • Sometimes, especially when the kid’s quietly working on something, Bruce will see how much like his mother Damian looks and it brings back bittersweet memories.
  • Gordon does not like this new Robin at all. He’s rude, arrogant, callous, condescending, and much too young.
  • Bullock likes this new Robin much more than he did the other goody-two-shoes Robins.
  • Dick has a “Damian scale” with 0 being a sneer and 10 being bloodshed. “Maybe don’t come out with us tonight, Tim, it’s an eight on the Damian scale.”
  • Damian HATES it when people tousle his hair. Which means that Jason, Barbara, Tim, and Stephanie do it all the time.
  • Damian didn’t have much fiction included in his early education and was positively giddy when Alfred granted him free rein of the Manor’s extensive library.
  • Damian loves video games and is very good at them. However, he is often over-stimulated and cranky (well, crankier than normal), afterwards, so Bruce limits his screen time, something which Dick,  Barbara, Tim, and Stephanie undermine every chance they get.
  • Dick’s absolute mess of a conglomerate accent and his rapid-fire patter means that Damian sometimes doesn’t understand what he says, which has caused some problems in the field. Damian refuses to admit when he doesn’t catch something, however, leading to frustration on both sides.
  • The first time Goliath landed on Manor grounds Alfred promptly fetched his old shotgun. When Damian climbed off of the Bat-dragon’s back Alfred promptly fetched a stiff drink.
  • Alfred has lost his temper with Damian exactly once. Nobody else was around and neither of them ever mention it, but Damian started treating Alfred with respect from that day on.
  • Damian’s one of those people who purports to despise animals but dotes on his pets and has to be prevented from keeping every stray who ever comes up to him. Kind of like his dad and kids.
  • For all he knows it would never work, Damian still wants his parents back together.
  • Damian is the most sensory-aware of the Bat family with the (probable) exception of Cassandra, meaning that he complains the most about the nasty aspects of the job, bathes frequently, and is easily put out of sorts by some irritant in his environment like Tim. It also means that he likes flowers, bubble baths, silk pajamas, and classical music.
  • Damian gets swarmed by ladies who declare that he is the cutest thing whenever he’s accompanying his father in the wealthy-socialite role, which is intensely distasteful to him, to the point that he considers being forced to attend a social event a form of punishment. 
  • Damian’s favorite game is to sneak around shadowing his dad. Bruce’s favorite game is to let him think he’s getting away with it.
  • Damian would rather exploit loopholes than flat-out break rules. Bruce has kind of given up on this front… It’s just easier at this point to run damage control, and he’s secretly proud of his son’s ingenuity.
