Dick Tracy was born in September 24, 1988 in Chicago, Illinois. His family were middle class, with his Father owning a very successful kennel downtown. From an early age, Tracy would often help out at his Father's kennel, where his Father taught him the value of hard, honest, work, a value Tracy always held on to. When he was 10, he had his first brush-in with the Criminal Underworld when a desperate fugitive ended up killing one of his cousins in a burglary gone wrong, only to be caught by a detective who trailed him to the house. This event would cause Tracy's life-long distaste for criminals and crime, and his lifelong respect for policeman, particularly detectives.

After graduating from Metropolis University, Tracy became a Intelligence Officer for the US Navy, a occupation that would help him in his later career as a Detective. During one of his shore leaves, he met and fell in love with one Tess Trueheart, the daughter of a local deli owner named Emil. After getting out of the military, Tracy moved back to Chicago and became a beat cop to be closer to Tess. On the day he was to announce his intentions to marry Tess, her Father was brutally gunned down by Mobsters for late extortion money, and Tess was kidnapped. Tracy, wanting to track down the murderous kidnappers, managed to get into the Plainclothes Unit, his first case involving the same crew who killed Tess' Father. After a year of undercover work, he was finally able to bust the extortion gang, but not before shooting their leader in a gunfight. Before the man died, he confessed where He hid Tess. When Tracy arrived, he was devastated to find that Tess was murdered by the gangsters. Tracy later found out that the gangsters were working for the Big Boy, one of Chicago's many crime bosses, and Tracy vowed to bring down Big Boy, even if it costed him his life.


After the successful bust of the extortion gang, Tracy was promoted to the rank of Detective. He worked towards his goal of busting the Big Boy, arresting many of his associates and surviving many attempts on his life in the process. During his early years as a Detective he had encounter with many infamous criminals, including the human trafficker Stud Bronzen, the mysterious Blank, and the murderous foreign agent only known as The Brow. When he was 35, he met the brute only known as Steve the Tramp, and his young "ward", Junior. Steve, was an abusive caretaker who taught Junior how to steal and tried to throw him onto train-tracks once Junior finally stood up to him. Luckily, Tracy caught up to Steve and arrested him, eventually adopting Junior as his own Son.

On Tracy's 38th birthday, he finally managed to gather enough evidence and, after years of trying, finally managed to bring down Big Boy and get him sent to federal prison for life. However, this arrest would unleash a power-keg not even Tracy could see and make him very powerful enemies. Six months after the arrest, Tracy was nearly killed in a car-bombing which he would learn was later set up by a 467 pound hit-man code-named Oodles. Tracy was forced by the Feds to flee with Junior to Metropolis to hide from his enemies. Tracy is currently still dwelling in Metropolis, serving it's police department under an alias as a detective and currently trying to find out who wants him dead.

Police Station:

Taking out Big Boy has had consequences that has negatively effected Tracy's life. Big Boy was one of Chicago's most prominent mobsters and the Chicago Mob has issued a hit on Tracy, putting his life in danger and forcing him to flee Chicago. Not only that, Tracy also offended the criminal organization called The Apparatus, a criminal syndicate often called "The Maggia of The Midwest." This group, of whom Big Boy was a secret senior member, has ties to the terrorist group HYDRA and has marked Tracy for death. If these two organizations, or any of the other criminal forces Tracy has foiled over the years ever found out where he lives now, it could end in disaster for him and for Junior.

Tracy has a son named Junior and is raising him as a single Father. If anyone were to find him and threaten him, Tracy would have no choice but to back off in order to save his son's life.


Tracy is still human and can be easily killed by people more powerful than him
