Since that night at the circus when I first saw him swooping down from the darkness... from the point Dick joined him-- Batman and Robin have meant everything to me. I've followed them both... I know them so well. I knew when Dick left to become Nightwing. I knew when Jason came and became Robin... and I knew when Jason died. And I saw how Batman changed without there being a Robin to care about. Look, I never wanted this for myself... but I wanted Batman and Robin back together the way they should be. And if Dick won't become Robin again... someone else has to!
~ Tim Drake.

Red Robin is a vigilante superhero associated with the Batman Family, usually a graduated form of Batmans original sidekick Robin.

The original Red Robin was Dick Grayson of the Kingdom Come universe, an alternate form of the character's usual Nightwing alias. Jason Todd, also known as Red Hood at the time, became the first regular Red Robin of the mainstream DC Universe when he received the costume as a gift from the Batman of an alternate universe during Countdown.

After Todd stopped using the costume it came into the possession of a super-villain named Ulysses Armstrong who wore it briefly during Search for a Hero. Tim Drake took the mantle at the end of Battle for the Cowl after his position as Robin was given to Damian Wayne. He uses it to assume a darker persona in The Grail, and still holds the position.

Red Robin was created by Mark Waid and Alex Ross, originally appearing as an Elseworlds character in Kingdom Come #2. (1996) The costume's first appearance in regular continuity was in Paul Dini's Countdown to Final Crisis #14. (2008).
