Dr. Kevin Galloway was born in Gotham City many years before the Chrell Invasion. Interested in science at a young age, he found the way that organisms reproduced and the genetic traits that they passed on to their offspring fascinating. Always a shy person, Kevin found himself more intrigued by nature than by his fellow humans. He took a particular liking to birds, bats, and other flying animals. He studied well in school and went to Gotham University for his undergraduate and master's degree. While in school, he met and married Anna Studebaker, a fellow student who was in the business program. After completing his studies, he was able to get a job in a genetics labs, doing research on various avian animals.
When the Chrell invaded, his lab was destroyed and Dr. Galloway found himself out of work and out of his home. He watched as Gotham City was rebuilt around him, but could not find a way to get his life back on track. Unfortunately, he'd also lost the rock on which he could have leaned, as Anna had died during the invasion itself. He was lost and left without a focus, and without friends.
