The Wayne family is one of the wealthiest and most powerful families in Gotham City and the most influential.
Nearly 200 years ago, the Waynes were one of the five families that ruled Gotham high society along with the Dumas, the Kanes, the Crownes, and the Elliots. After Caleb Dumas was falsely accused of forcing himself upon Celestine Wayne, his hand was cut off by Celestine's brother Jonathan Wayne and the Dumas' family holdings were seized and they were banished socially. The Dumas were forbidden from being mentioned by the press on orders from the Wayne family and streets and buildings were renamed that then carried the Dumas name.
