The BVS version of Alfred Pennyworth (Jeremy Irons) is not Bruce Wayne’s butler but his chief of security. He’s a former SAS officer who lives on the grounds of Wayne Manor in what is described as a ‘comfortable trailer’. Alfred was first employed by Thomas and Martha Wayne as their bodyguard and was the only staff member to not be dismissed by Bruce after his parents were murdered. Pennyworth becomes Bruce’s legal guardian and confidant following the murder of his parents, it was actually Alfred who made the decision to leave Wayne Manor after the rest of the servants were dismissed )that explains why it’s fallen into disrepair).
