Robert Long was the son of Donna Troy and Terry Long. Destined to be born sentient with godlike powers, Robert had the potential to become a power-mad despot known as Lord Chaos.

The Titans of Myth helped take away these powers the instant Robert was born, thus preventing the child’s destructive future. Robert’s parents divorced when he was an infant, but he never lacked love or attention from either of them.

Tragically, at the age of three, Robert was killed alongside his father and half-sister, Jennifer, in a car accident.
