Richard Lyons was a crimelord who posed as a masked vigilante called the Crimson Knight in order to gain the Gotham City Police Department's trust. Lyons often helped Batman and Robin to earn their trust as well, but the Dynamic Duo were always suspicious of the new crimefighter. Eventually, Batman and Robin confronted the Crimson Knight as he tried to steal some valuable objects and learned his secret identity as the crimelord Lyons, who was captured and his criminal career ended.
