Dr. Timothy Hayes was the father of Purple Hayes, he lived with his family in Visigoth, Massachusetts. He, his wife, Blair, and Purple, were leaving a 10 p.m. showing of the movie "Easy Rider" and heading to their van that they had parked in an alley to keep their "bread out of the system's meters."
They were confronted by a shadowy figure in the alley who held a gun on them and asked them for all their money. As the figure went to take Blair's pearl necklace, Timothy leapt at him. The figure shot and killed him, and then turned the gun on Blair, shooting and killing her as well.
The Figure then looked at Purple and asked "Does Satan dance the funky chicken 'neath the harvest moon?" before laughing and taking off into the night.
This inspired Purple. She decided that she was "so bummed" that they got "wasted" that she was going to dedicate her life to bringing all non-radicalized outlaws to justice. And thus, Nosferata the She-Bat was born!
*Nosferata is comic writer Steve Gerber's parody take on Batman, therefore, Dr. Timothy Hayes would be the parody take on Thomas Wayne.
*The shadowy figure in the alley turned out to be Jack Serious, Steve Gerber's parody take on The Joker.
