Robbie was the brother of Elsa Crystal. He was a slender man with dark hair.

Robbie had a severe narcotics habit. He also gambled, and was in need of money. He agreed to help his sister after she murdered her wealthy husband Claude. Robbie posed as Claude and flew to Europe, leaving a false trail for the police. Upon returning to the United States, Robbie was unable to keep his activities secret, and the police began to investigate him and Elsa.

Fearing discovery, Elsa shot Robbie to death in the basement of her mansion. When Dick Tracy arrived, she locked him in the her home's walk-in freezer and escaped after setting fire to the house. Robbie's body was reduced to ashes.
