Henri Ducard was a skilled assassin wanted in many countries. His main talent was in "manhunting": Finding (and killing) assassination targets who are in hiding or have fled. Upon meeting Felicity Strode (an assassin hired to kill him, although she kept that a secret), the two fell in love and married, having a child named Morgan. Though he was away often, Henri tried to teach Morgan as much as he could about the family trade.
Upon returning home after one trip, Henri discovered Morgan had killed Felicity. Henri learned about his wife's past and that she had recently been discovered by her original employers and was being pressured into killing him, which is why Morgan killed her. Henri chose to take Morgan with him and train him formally in the ways of assassination.
Ducard met Bruce Wayne in Paris, France and taught him "manhunting" skills after he proved his worth by defeating Morgan in combat. Upon Wayne's departure, he tasked Morgan with the job of killing Wayne to prevent any unwanted attention. After Morgan failed to kill Wayne, Henri seemed to lose any respect or affection for his son.
