Deborah Poulos was an employee at the Cloisters, where she met Richard Grayson and started dating him.

During one of her dates with Dick, they were walking the on the streets when coins started falling from the top of the Empire State Building. Dick saved Deborah and placed her in a cab to take her home. A few days later, Deborah witnessed how several blimps dropped acid on the middle of Manhattan and was slightly affected by the attack.[1]

A few days later, after showing some of the unjuries caused by the acid to Dick, she informed him about her decision to move back to California and she tried to convince him of moving with her, but he refused and their relationship ended.[2]
