================================

 V 0.1
  In this little FAQ, I shall merely list out everyone's in-game bio and also,
in the next update, a transcript of all the Patient Interview tapes that you can
find scattered throughout Arkham Asylum. I also decided that I want to put in
the notes from the journal that came with the Collectorís Edition as an added
bonus at the bottom portion of this FAQ. That will also be in the next update.
There is a bunch of spoilers in this FAQ (which should have been obvious) so if
you have not finished the game yet or donít like spoilers... LEAVE NOW BEFORE
ITíS TOO LATE.

V 0.2   (08-29-09)
 I added the Collector's Edition journal entries and made a few text changes to
the bios (spelling errors and such). The next update will have the patient
interviews. Its taking longer than I thought it would.
If there are any mistakes or quotes that are wrong, send me an email
(kiriyamanexATgmailDOTcom)

V Final (09-01-09)
Added the Patient Interviews. If a line has errors or gave a speaker a wrong
name, send an email!

A (+) symbol will denote that a character has interview tape.
A * symbol denotes a personal note that I felt needed to be added on. Also, I
have listed the characters in order from left to right in the Bios Menu just in
case you are missing someone and want to know who it is for whatever reason.
With that being said, letís get to it!

Patient Interviews:
------------------------------
Patient Interview #1, June 16th
------------------------------
Dr. Young: Taped patient interview. Subject has no recorded name, alias listed
as the Joker.
In the room is Warden Sharp and myself, Dr. Young.

Joker: (Ugh) is this another one of those boring psych evaluation tests?

Dr. Young: No, itís not. So, you're the famous Joker.

Joker: In the flesh. So Doc, do you want me to look at the ink blots again? The
first one is a kitten I had when I was a child. The second one is, hmmm, let's
see... a dead elephant. The third is a...

Dr. Young: Very funny. Now letís skip the jokes.

Joker: Skip the jokes? Hey, Sharpie, didnít she get my permanent record?

Warden Sharp: Be quiet, clown!

Dr. Young: Every doctor that has ever interviewed you claims a different type of
psychosis. Everything from multiple personality disorders to well... the list is
endless.

Joker: (soft giggle) Well, I do my best.

Dr. Young: Well, I donít believe it. Anything can be cured with
the correct treatment.

Joker: And... you think... you can cure me?

Dr. Young: Oh, I know I can.

------------------------------
Patient Interview #17, July 27th
------------------------------
Dr. Young: Taped patient interview 17. Joker remains uncooperative.
My earlier diagnosis remains true. I believe he enjoys his persona too much.

Joker: Whatís up, Doc?

Dr. Young: Today I thought we'd try something different.

Joker: You'll make me blush, Doc. I have a girlfriend.

Dr. Young: Dr. Quinzel. I know. I've seen the tapes. I saw what happened.

Joker: What can I say, I'm a charmer.

Dr. Young: Anyway, I thought it would be good to talk about your childhood.

Joker: Ever heard of romance, Doc? I don't give up the goods for free. You have
to try harder.

Dr. Young: What are you hiding?

Joker: Didn't you hear me? You scratch my back, Doc, and... well, I won't have
you wrapped in plastic and left in a gutter.

------------------------------
Patient Interview #20, August 1st
------------------------------
Dr. Young: Taped patient interview 20. Joker is more interesting than I
originally believed. When Project Titan is operational, I believe Joker will be
the perfect test subject.

Good afternoon. Today I thought I'd skip back to our previous conversations
about your family.

Joker: Of course. I was born in a small fishing village. I always wanted to join
the circus, but my father wouldn't really let me.

Dr. Young: I don't believe you.

Joker: My father was a cop, 1 week from retirement when the mob...

Dr. Young: I've seen the movie. What are you scared of?

Joker: Scared?

Dr. Young: Yes, scared! There's obviously something. Something that made you
what you are.

Joker: What if... what if I am too scared to remember? It hurts too much.

Dr. Young: Then I can help you.

------------------------------
Case study notes December 22nd
------------------------------
Dr. Young: These are the private notes of Dr. Young. Titan is a success. Even my
funding worries have been solved after the unexpected donations from Mr. White.

Joker has also shown a remarkable interest in the possibility of a cure. Once
the protein bonding process is finalized, I will...

(Knocking)

Asylum guard: Dr. Young, you ready?

Dr. Young: Oh, yes. Yes, come in!

(Door opening)

Joker: You'll hurt my feelings Doc. Keeping me waiting like that.

Dr. Young: Sit down, you can leave us.

Guard: You sure?

Dr. Young: We're fine. Aren't we, Joker?

Joker: Oh yes.

Guard: Well, if you insist. I'm just outside. OK?

(Door closes)

Joker: So, is he here? Did your Patient X arrive?

Dr. Young: Yes, I must say progressing more rapidly than I expected. But...
enough of that. Let's talk about you.

Joker: No. Let's talk more about your Titan project.

Dr. Young: My what...? How do you...?

Joker: How do I know you have Bane strapped to a table in the basement while you
pump him dry? Would you believe a lucky guess?

------------------------------
Case study notes December 23rd
------------------------------
Dr. Young: I've been a fool. Joker was behind it all. He's Jack White, he gave
me the money, pulled strings to release Bane. How could I not have seen it?

He's been blackmailing me. He has a crazy plan to create an army of monsters. I
want out, but...

(Phone rings)

Hello... hello? Doctor Young's office.

Harley Quinn: Please hold for Mr. White.

Dr. Young: What?

Joker: Hello, Doc. We need to talk.

Dr. Young: I'm not doing it, Joker. Do you hear me? Wait, how did you get access
to a phone?

Joker: Oh yes, sorry, Doc, had to split. I hate small confined spaces, reminds
me of my childhood.

Dr. Young: Another lie?

Joker: Who knows? I certainly don't, but let's not get distracted with
details... So anyway. I want my monsters.

Dr. Young: I sent you back the money. I don't want it.

Joker: Do I look like I care about money? I just want my monsters, Doc. And if
you don't give them to me, well then, it won't be funny!

------------------------------

Aaron Cash: He? You're kidding me, right? That thing's not a man.

Warden Sharp: My God!

Dr. Whistler: Hello. My name is Dr. Gretchen Whistler. Do you understand me?

Killer Croc: Yeah, I hear you, bitch. So, when's dinner? I'm getting hungry.

------------------------------

Dr. Whistler: Taped patient session 2. Patient name Waylon Jones AKA Killer
Croc.

Killer Croc: So is this the part where you try and reason with me? Find out why
I did it, Doc?

Dr. Whistler: We're here to help you, Mr. Jones.

Croc: You got a cure for me then, Doc? Can you make me... normal?

Dr. Whistler: Normal is a poor choice of words. No one is really normal, are
they?

Croc: Figured as much. So how about this, Doc? You let me go now, and I won't
eat you.

Dr. Whistler: You don't really eat people. It's just an urban myth.

Patient Interview #5, February 25th
------------------------------
Aaron Cash: Sit down and shut up!

Killer Croc: You think I'm scared of you, Cash? I've got your scent, you're...

(Electrical sounds / Croc screaming)

Aaron Cash: And I've got yours too. Know what? It stinks. Carry on, Doc.

Dr. Whistler: Please don't do that again, Mr. Cash. It's not helping. I'm sorry
about the collar, but what can we do if you insist on hospitalizing 3 guards?

Iím happy to wait here. Wait for the Bat. He'll be back and I'll kill him. Then

What happened back in that house?

Killer Croc: Just business.

Dr. Whistler: Business? What kind of business practices result in a house full
of mutilated corpses?

Croc: I don't like having my time wasted. Someone doesn't pay, they need a
lesson. They owed me.

Dr. Whistler: So you killed them. Tore up their bodies. The police never found
all the pieces.

Croc: They should have looked in the sewers.

Dr. Whistler: Are you saying you hid them there?

==============================

An Arkham Asylum psychiatrist assigned to treat The Joker, Dr. Harleen Quinzel
instead became obsessively fixated on her patient, believing herself to be in
love with him. She helped him escape confinement and took on her own criminal
identity as Harley Quinn. Quin is a violent and unpredictable felon whose only

------------------------------
Employee orientation, March 3rd
------------------------------
Dr. Whistler: Harleen Quinzel?

Harleen Quinzel: Call me Harley, everyone does.

Dr. Whistler: I'm surprised you want to intern here at Arkham.

Harley: I've always had a thing for extreme personalities. You can't deny
there's an element of glamour to these super criminals.

Dr. Whistler: I'll warn you right not, those are hardcore psychotics. Most would
rather kill you than speak to you.

Harley: I'm sure I'll be fine, Doctor.

Dr. Whistler: They'll eat you for breakfast. I mean it, one or two of them will
enjoy it too. Be careful.

------------------------------
Patient interview #1, March 3rd
------------------------------
Dr. Harleen Quinzel: Patient interview number 1.

Joker: So, I'm your first, am I, toots? You know what they say, you never forget
your first time. I'll try to make it memorable for you.

Dr. Quinzel: Oh, you already have. Tell me, why do you do the things you do?

Joker: Why do you think I do it?

Dr. Quinzel: Fame, notoriety, a desire to stand out from the crowd? A wicked
sense of humor.

Joker: (Gasp) You're good! How did you figure me out, Doc? I've had doctors
poking around in here for years and no one was as astute, and if you don't mind
my saying, beautiful as you.

Dr. Quinzel: Really? Oh, you're just playing with me.

Joker: Well, you'll never know, will you, unless...

Dr. Quinzel: Unless what? Tell me!

------------------------------
Patient interview #2, March 4rh
------------------------------
Dr. Harleen Quinzel: Care to tell me how these got in my office?

Joker: Simple, really. I put them there. Why, don't you like flowers?

Dr. Quinzel: I think the guards would be interested to know you've been out of
your cell.

Joker: (laughs) If you really were going to tell, you already would've.

Dr. Quinzel: How do you know I haven't already...?

Joker: Y'know, sweets, I like you. I really do. Even your name. Rework it a bit
and we get...

Dr. Quinzel: Harlequin, like the clown, I know. I've heard it before.

Joker: It's a name that puts a smile on my face. It makes me think there's
someone here I can relate to. Someone who might like to hear my secrets.

Dr. Quinzel: Really? Go on!

Joker: Not here, my dear, too many ears and eyes. Come back tonight, I'll be
ready for you.

------------------------------
Patient interview #4, March 6th
------------------------------
Joker: He's crazy, you know.

Dr. Harleen Quinzel: Who? Batman?

Joker: No, Santa Claus. Of course Batman. Always Batman. I've seen it in his
eyes. Screaming mad stalkers. And dishonest, hiding his face behind a fright
mask. Well, no masks for me. I have nothing to hide. I laugh at the cruel
absurdity of the world. But Batman... Batman, he's got them all fooled. He's
made them think he can make a difference. That he can actually make things
better. And the Joke of it is, they all believe it.

Dr. Quinzel: The police?

Joker: The police, the media, the frickin' junior rangers, every last sack of
walking meat in this urban cesspool. Listen, sweets, Batman knows we're all on
the same funhouse slide into madness, why won't he admit it? He's up there in
his belfry laughing at us. And the real gag is, the miserable liar is allowed to
run free while I'm in here.

Dr. Quinzel: Thatís really incisive.

Joker: Then you understand, don't you? You know why I do what I have to do. You
know Gotham's only real savior... is me.

------------------------------
Patient interview #11, April 1st
------------------------------
Dr. Harleen Quinzel: (whispering) I got what you wanted.

Joker: You did? I mean... good. How did you smuggle it in... Actually, I don't
want to know. So, you read to stop that evil, murdering bat once and for all?

Dr. Quinzel: Of course I am. He needs to pay for what he's done to you.

Joker: Give it here then, quickly.

(Sound of a gun cocking a round into the chamber then fires, breaking glass.
Asylum alarm sounds.)

Joker: (laughs) C'mon, Doc. We've got ourselves a Bat to kill.

Harley Quinn: Uh uh uh. The Doc's out, puddin'. Say hello to your new and
improved Harley Quinn.

(Joker and Harley laughing)

==============================

District Attorney Harvey Dent was one of Batman's strongest allies in Gotham
City, until a criminal threw acid in Dent's face, hideously scarring him. The
wounds fractured his psyche, and he was reborn as a schizoid criminal
mastermind, obsessed with duality. His former good-luck charm, a "two-headed"
trick silver dollar, was damaged on one side in the attack, and Dent has seized
on it as a reflection of his half-scarred visage. He flips it to decide the

10. The Great White Shark
==============================
Story:
A crooked financier who stole millions of dollars, Warren White thought he'd
scored a legal victory when his insanity plea went through. But when he got to
Arkham Asylum, he realized his mistake; driven insane by the other inmates, he
was also disfigured by an encounter with Mr. Freeze that left him without hair,
a nose, ears, or lips.* Calling himself the Great White Shark, he filed his
teeth into fangs to more perfectly resemble his new namesake. Putting his
financial skills to use, he has become a major player in Gotham's underground
crime scene, in running a number of rackets from his cell in Arkham.

(* This is untrue. While a riot was happening in the asylum, Warren was taken
prisoner by Jane Doe and threw him into Mr. Freeze's cell. After being in the
freezing cold cell for a while, he managed to untie his bonds but "at a cost of
three fingers and his right thumb". He then fell to his knees and hit his face
on the floor in frustration. This destroyed the area from his upper lip to the
bridge of his nose, thus scarring him.)

brawl, resulting in him being sent to Blackgate Prison. There he encountered the
puppet Scarface, and promptly murdered the man who'd carved the puppet. The two

Patient Interviews:
------------------------------
Patient interview #21, May 27th
------------------------------
Dr. Young: Patient interview 21. Patient's name is Edward Nigma, also known as
the Riddler. So, Edward. Warden Sharp tells me you've been leaving threatening
riddles scrawled on the asylum walls, again.

Riddler: One would have to be severely paranoid to read threats into harmless
riddles, Doctor Young. May I test you with one?

Dr. Young: Very well

Riddler: What is it that walks on four legs, then two legs, and finally three
legs?

Dr. Young: A human being. As a baby it crawls on four legs, as an adult it walks
around on two and in later years it uses a cane.

Riddler: (laughs) Good try, but the answer to all three is a baby. True, it
crawls on all fours, but cut off its legs and it can only wiggle on two limbs.
Give it a crutch, it can hobble around on three. You see?

Dr. Young: That's horrible. How can you even joke about that?

Riddler: Easily, Doctor. Itís not my baby.

------------------------------
Patient interview #39, July 29th
------------------------------
Dr. Young: Taped interview 39. Patient's name is Edward Nigma. At this point in
time I have yet to decide if Mr. Nigma is a suitable candidate for the Titan
process.  I'd like to talk about your childhood.

Riddler: Miserable. Next?

Dr. Young: By all accounts that is where your fascination with riddles began. I
believe discussing those years could explain your compulsive behavior.

Riddler: Very well... (Sigh) My father hated me. Always called me a moron.

Dr. Young: I see.

Riddler: I was determined to prove him wrong, so I entered a contest at school.
A twenty dollar prize to the kid who could figure out an almost impossible logic
problem. I won, of course.

Dr. Young: And that pleased your father?

Riddler: hardly. He was convinced I had cheated. He kept yelling, "You must have
cheated! Admit it, you moron! You cheated!" I swore I didn't and he hit me for
lying.

Dr. Young: Iím sorry to hear that, Edward.

Riddler: Don't be. He was right.

------------------------------
Patient interview #44, August 21st
------------------------------
Dr. Young: Patient interview 44. This is yet another interview with Edward
Nigma. I have yet to make up my mind whether he is a genius or just deluded.
Whichever one he is, just being in his company is both irritating and
exhausting.

Riddler: Hello, Miss Young. You look tired. Anything you need my help with?

Dr. Young: No thank you, Edward. I am here to help you. We all are.

Riddler: (chuckles) Forgive my arrogance, Doctor, but if you think I need your
help, well, you're in the right place.

Dr. Young: Let's look at it a different way. Throughout your career, you have
specialized in bizarre traps and convoluted clues that, more often than not,
result in the death of the unfortunate participants.

Riddler: And if the citizens of Gotham were smarter, my games would be merely an
amusing diversion.

Dr. Young: Instead of deathtraps.

Riddler: You really should be thanking me. Weeding out the ignorant, the stupid,
the useless. But don't worry, Iím sure you would survive. What a lovely photo on
your desk, Doctor. Your family? Mother, perhaps?

(Sounds of a scuffle maybe)

Dr. Young: Put that down! Get out! Guards!

------------------------------
Patient interview #55, October 4th
------------------------------
Dr. Young: Let's discuss your obsession with Batman.

Riddler: Hardly an obsession, Miss Young. I simply feel an obligation to expose
him.

Dr. Young: You know who he is?

Riddler: More importantly, I know what he is.

Dr. Young: What do you mean?

Riddler: It's obvious. The Mask, the weapons, the scare tactics, he's a
criminal. No different than Joker, Two-Face or myself.

Dr. Young: Most people consider him a hero.

(A sound resembling a chair sliding across the floor)

Riddler: Most people are idiots. They can't see Batman for the villain he is.
Riddle me this. How did he get his car and his gadgets?

Dr. Young: I don't...

Riddler: With money stolen from the criminals he "defeats". Why does Gordon turn
a blind eye to his antics? Batman bribes him! The answers are right in front of
your stupid, gawking face!

Dr. Young: Edward! Please, calm down...

Riddler: Wake up, Gotham! No sane, law-abiding man does these things! No one's
that selfless! Batman is as vile as they come!

(Sounds of a scuffle again)

Dr. Young: Security! Security!

------------------------------
Patient interview #76, January 16th
------------------------------
Dr. Young: This is my final interview with Edward. I have gone as far as I can.
I can no longer tolerate his mood swings and tantrums. I have more important
work to be getting on with. He will be transferred to Dr. Whistler's care as of
next week.

Riddler: Good morning, Doctor. How are you today?

Dr. Young: I'm fine, thank you, Edward. You're in a good mood.

Riddler: I'm always in rare spirits when I'm about to be released.

Dr. Young: Edward, you know you don't come up for parole for another three
years.

Riddler: First thing I'll do is have dinner at that Italian place on 19th
Street...

Dr. Young: Seriously, Edward...

Riddler: I only hope Joker hasn't completely trashed the city. Ah well, I'm sure
I'll find out soon enough.

Dr. Young: Wait, have you been in contact with The Joker? He escaped Arkham
weeks ago!

Riddler: And yet, one hears things...

Dr. Young: What things? What have you heard?

Riddler: Oh, something about a surprise party for Batman, I forget the rest. You
know Joker, yak, yak, yak.

Dr. Young: Edward, if you know anything, you've got to tell me! Lives could be
at stake! What did Joker say?

Riddler: You forget, Doctor. I'm the one who asks the riddles.

Patient interview #1, November 4th
------------------------------
Dr. Cassidy: Taped patient evaluation 1. Patient name is Victor Zsasz, diagnosed
clinically insane after the murder of at least 20 women in the Gotham area.
Hello, Victor, I'm Dr. Cassidy. Seeing as this is our first session, let's spend
some time getting to know each other.

Zsasz: I donít need to know you, Miss Cassidy. Everything is meaningless.

Dr. Cassidy: Don't you think that's a very negative outlook on life, Victor?

Zsasz: You've no doubt read my file.

Dr. Cassidy: Yes... yes I have. It says you come from a wealthy family. That
your parents died. How you lost all the money gambling.

Zsasz: And none of it matters.

Dr. Cassidy: Why do you keep saying that, Victor?

Zsasz: Because the only thing that does matter is the mark. Have you seen my
work, Miss Cassidy?

Dr. Cassidy: If you are referring to the marks on your...

Zsasz: Of course I mean my tally marks. And I have a space for yours. Do you
want to see where?

------------------------------
Patient interview #5, November 19th
------------------------------
Dr. Cassidy: Taped patient evaluation 5. Victor is not responding well to
treatment. Victor, yesterday we spoke about the people you killed.

Zsasz: Ah, the zombies.

Dr. Cassidy: They are all people, Victor.

Zsasz: They are zombies, continuously shuffling through the daily grind, waiting
for someone to liberate them.

Dr. Cassidy: You mean kill them. The police report states that you have
murdered, or liberated if you like, 20 young women in the last 3 months. Each
had her throat slit and was left... posed.

Zsasz: They were all lucky to be chosen to receive my gift.

Dr. Cassidy: I doubt they would agree with you.

Zsasz: Really? How about you, Miss Cassidy? As you take the elevator to your
apartment each night, open the six locks to your apartment 433, remember you
forgot to buy your cat food. Again.

Dr. Cassidy: How do you know where I...?

Zsasz: As you sit down on your favorite red chair, cat on lap, just waiting for
something to happen. I can make it happen, Sarah. I am your salvation.

------------------------------
Patient interview #1, November 22nd
------------------------------
Dr. Whistler: Patient's name is Victor Zsasz. For the record, the patient has
transferred from Dr. Cassidy, who is on leave after the incident last week.
Hello Victor. Please, take a seat. Guards, you can leave us.

Guard: Sorry, Doctor. Warden's orders. I can't leave you alone with him.

Dr. Whistler: I understand. Hello, Victor. How are you feeling today? Victor! I
can't help you if you don't speak.

Zsasz: Depressed! Does that help you? Can you get into my mind, Doctor?

Dr. Whistler: Why depressed?

Zsasz: I'm just thinking about the one that got away. The one I chose. I needed
the mark. I want the mark!

------------------------------
Patient interview #4, December 12th
------------------------------

Dr. Whistler: Victor has been more subdued recently. Response to medication has
been poor. Hello Victor, is there anything you'd like to talk about today?

Zsasz: Cutting and cutting and cutting and cutting and cutting and cutting...

Dr. Whistler: Victor!

Zsasz: Cutting and cutting and cutting and cutting and cutting...

Dr. Whistler: This is going nowhere. Guards. Get him out of here.

Guard 1: You heard the doctor, get up! Didn't you hear me?

Guard 2: He's got a knife!

(Guard 1, I believe, screaming and sounds of fighting)

Guard 2: Get a tranq in him! Get a tranq in him! Oh God! He's on Bill!

Guard 3: He's cutting him. Get him off. Get him off. We need help in here!

------------------------------
Case study notes, December 22nd
------------------------------
Dr. Whistler: Victor has been in isolation since the attack on the guard last
week. As I wait for him to be brought up to me, I have had time to review his
notes. I am increasingly worried he cannot be cured. He has no empathy for his
victims. Deep down, I believe he views all of us as potential victims.

Guard: Doc, are you OK?

Dr. Whistler: What's happening?

Guard: Itís Zsasz. He broke out of isolation. He's gone.

Dr. Whistler: Oh God!

Guard: Don't worry, Doc, you're in the safest place. He's definitely left the
island.

Dr. Whistler: Of course. But someone needs to alert the authorities, he'll need
to kill again. Do you understand me? Needs to. Oh no. He's gone after Dr.
Cassidy.

(Dial tone, dialing, and ringing are heard through speaker phone.)

Dr. Cassidy: Hello?

Dr. Whistler: Sarah, its Gretchen. Listen to me.

Dr. Cassidy: Oh, for the love of... Hold on. There's someone at the door.

Dr. Whistler: Sarah! Do not answer the door. Can you hear me? Do not answer the
door. It's Zsasz! He's free.

Ivy: Yes, what else? Of course, at the time I thought Jason had poisoned me, but
in retrospect he did me a huge favor.

Dr. Kellerman: And why do you believe what he did has... helped you?

Ivy: He showed me the bigger world. A world I should protect. Of course, my
first offer was rejected.

Dr. Kellerman: Offer? You tried to kill everyone in Gotham.

Ivy: Well, sometimes you need to prune back hard in order to make something
flourish.

Patient interview #42, November 14th
------------------------------
Dr. Stephen Kellerman: Patient interview, Pamela Lillian Isley, November 14,
10:21 AM. Hello, Pamela. Today I'd like to go back to something you said in our
last conversation.

Poison Ivy: Ask me anything you like.

Dr. Kellerman: You said your first offer to help Gotham was rejected. How can
you possibly believe that?

Ivy: What do you mean?

Dr. Kellerman: You released thousands of poisonous spores into Gotham, killed
hundreds of people. How does that help anybody?

Ivy: Iím not interested in bodies, Doctor. Horrible fleshy sacks walking around
destroying my poor babies with their greed and arrogance.

Dr. Kellerman: But aren't you one of those fleshy sacks? You're a.... were a
doctor too. How can you turn your back on us?

Ivy: Quite easily, as it happens, but not you, Stephen. You're different. I feel
we have a connection.

Dr. Kellerman: Really? You do?

Ivy: Of course.

------------------------------
Patient interview #43, November 15th
------------------------------
Dr. Stephen Kellerman: Pamela! I got what you asked for. Do you like it?

Poison Ivy: Oh yes, Stephen, I love it. Such a beautiful flower. Do you mind if
I keep it?

Dr. Kellerman: Oh no, Pamela. I can't leave it. It's against all the rules. I'll
just bring it and show it to you when I visit.

Ivy: But it's me, Stephen. I get so lonely on my own. You wouldn't want me to be
lonely, would you?

Dr. Kellerman: No of course not. Keep it. Just don't let anyone see. Really. No
one.

Ivy: You can trust me, Stephen. Thank you. Now give me a kiss.

Dr. Kellerman: I can't... people will see.

Ivy: No one's watching. What's wrong with you? Don't you love me? Call me Ivy.

Dr. Kellerman: Of course I love you.

------------------------------
Patient interrogation #1, November 17th
------------------------------
Warden Sharp: Where is Doctor Kellerman?

Poison Ivy: How should I know, Warden? It does seem careless of you to have lost
him.

Warden Sharp: I have no time for your games, Miss Isley. Tell me where you have
him. We have security footage of you and him leaving your cell last night.

Ivy: So?

Warden Sharp: Do I need to spell it out? We know you hypnotized him, or whatever
it is you do. We know he took you somewhere, but conveniently, security cameras
across the island were mysteriously covered by leaves and flowers at 3 AM. Now
tell me where he is!

Ivy: I'm not saying a word unless you do exactly what I tell you to do.

------------------------------
Patient interrogation #3, November 18th
------------------------------
Warden Sharp: We found him. No thanks to you. The poor man could have died.

Poison Ivy: So?

Warden Sharp: He has a wife. A child.

Ivy: As do the plants he tramples underfoot. The spores he breathes in and
destroys have children. Why does he deserve anything more than them? You people
ignore what is happening in front of your eyes.

Warden Sharp: I refuse to put the welfare of plants before the welfare of
people.

Ivy: And that is why you will lose. There's more happening than you know,
Warden. It's all connected.

Victor Fries was a brilliant cryogenicist whose beloved wife Nora was stricken
with a fatal degenerative disease. He placed her in suspended animation while
obsessively searching for a way to cure her, but the corporation that funded his
research - and Nora's life - pulled the plug, triggering an accident that
transformed Fries' body into a cold-blooded form that must always be kept below
zero; at normal room temperature he will die. Wielding a number of freezing
weapons, he wears protective armor in his quest to somehow bring back his lovely
wife and avenge her fate - which he partly holds the Batman responsible for.

Patient Interviews:
------------------------------
Patient interview #41, November 12th
------------------------------
Scarecrow: Patient interview 1. Patient was referred to me after the incident
with Dr. Murphy. He appears to have suffered a breakdown of sorts. I believe it
was brought about after the loss of his wife and child. As Yet, the patient has
been unable to speak. Continued observation shows little mental activity. It's
as if the shock of what he saw triggered his mental collapse.

(Door squeaking open)

Guard 1: There's someone in here!

Guard 2: It's him! We found him!

Guard 1: Break down the door!

(Banging)

Scarecrow: Note to self. As ever, it is difficult to continue my research under
such conditions.

Guard 1: Step away from Dr. Combs.

Guard 2: Now!

Guard 1: Get down on the ground!

Guard 2: We've found them. Someone get a medic. Oh God, what's he done to him?

------------------------------
Patient interview #6, January 22nd
------------------------------
Dr. Stephen Kellerman: Patient interview 6. Dr. Crane has been back in custody
for 3 weeks. Regular sessions have been inconclusive. I am not sure he is
actually insane.

Scarecrow: Good evening, Stephen. How are you tonight?

Dr. Kellerman: I'm conducting the sessions, Jonathan.

Scarecrow: Of course. If that helps you cope, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Dr. Kellerman: Let's talk about the events 3 weeks ago. What did you think you'd
achieve? Dr. Murphy is still in therapy.

Scarecrow: I wanted to understand him. His personal demons. His fears. It's all
quite fascinating, really.

Dr. Kellerman: But you are... were a respected doctor. A brilliant mind, now
just another resident in Arkham.

Scarecrow: Can I have a drink? A strong one? That kind of question bores me.

Dr. Kellerman: I'm afraid not.

Scarecrow: Interesting choice of words, Doctor. Tell me, what are you afraid of?

------------------------------
Patient interview #9, January 29th
------------------------------
Dr. Stephen Kellerman: Patient interview 9. Dr. Crane continues to evade
questions. I believe he is quite sane. Just evil. He takes no interest in the
people he has hurt. His research appears to be the only motivating factor in his
life. What is it about fear that drives your obsession?

Scarecrow: Fear drives everything, Stephen. Everything. Your life is governed by
fear. Every decision you make is a product of that fear.

Dr. Kellerman: Don't be ridiculous.

Scarecrow: You married your wife... Margaret, isn't it? ...because you were
scared of dying alone. You have children because you are scared of leaving
nothing behind that really matters. You go to the doctors because you're scared
of dying. Do I need to go on?

Dr. Kellerman: No, I think that will be all for today. Guards!

------------------------------
Patient interview #12, February 14th
------------------------------
Dr. Stephen Kellerman: Today I have another interview with Crane. I cannot say I
am looking forward to it. I've been feeling anxious. I don't like to admit it,
but... I think he's getting to me.

Scarecrow: How are you today?

Dr. Kellerman: I keep telling you, this is my session.

Scarecrow: It was your session, Doctor, but not anymore.

Guard: Are you OK, Doc?

Dr. Kellerman: I think... yes... I...

Scarecrow: Oh, he's fine. Just questioning his grip on reality. You should be
doing the same any second...

Guard: Mom, is that you? Wait, what are you doing?

Dr. Kellerman: Get off of me... Help. I need help here. I can't breathe...

Scarecrow: Like I said... You're all part of my experiment now!

------------------------------
Asylum interview #1, February 14th
------------------------------
Scarecrow: Asylum interview 1. My experiment is underway. Working alone, I have
created my ultimate Fear Gas, its potency a revelation.

Dr. Kellerman: They're all over me.

Guard: Please, Daddy, don't do it.

(Screaming)

Dr. Kellerman: Keep away! Keep away! Keep away!

Scarecrow: I have pumped enough gas into the Medical Center to break 100 minds.
It should only be a matter of time before... (Glass shattering) What?

Dr. Kellerman: Give it up. Now!

Scarecrow: How... how are you still standing? How come it's not affecting you?

Batman: Who says it's not?

Scarecrow: I knew it. What was it like? What have you seen?

Dr. Kellerman: Officer Cash. Get this formula to the air-conditioning system.
Now!

Batman: You failed, Crane. Again, I've been working with Dr. Kellerman, creating
an antidote to the toxins in your cologne. He fooled you, Crane. How does that
make you feel? Threatened, humiliated? Scared?

*Thanks to BlackKing for helping me with whose saying which lines in this one!

Story:
Gotham's Blackgate Penitentiary once had a Gallows Tree from which 313 criminals
with death sentences were hanged. The wood from that tree was whittled by an
inmate into the puppet Scarface, and that inmate was murdered by Arnold Wesker,
a man who soon fell under Scarface's influence. While most believe that Scarface
is simply a tool through which Wesker, as the criminal mastermind, the

with a schizophrenic personality disorder, but he chose to ignore it. How could
someone of his importance be ill like the dogs in his asylum? On taking over the
administration of Arkham Asylum, Sharp became obsessed with the hidden writings
of Amadeus Arkham. As he read more of these memoirs, he became almost two
people; one dedicated to curing Gotham, the other desiring only to eradicate the
evil of insanity from Arkham. In his demented state, he has stalked and killed
patients, his ultimate goal being to kill the Joker. It is possible the rational
side of his personality is not even aware of this dark, destructive force within
him.

Deciphered Messages:
------------
Message #1
------------
I am the spirit of Amadeus Arkham.
Through my actions, I have saved this cursed city, through my own curse is to
forever remain in the shadows. My story is carved into the very soul of Arkham
and will only be revealed to those dedicated enough to discover it.

------------
Message #2
------------
My family's blood ran through the heart of Gotham. We were doctors, politicians
and teachers; we have been the organ cleaning the arterial filth from the city.
We have been its servants giving all to protect it. And still it has chosen to
hurt us.

------------
Message #3
------------
As Gotham's veins slowly filled with pain and suffering, the effects were felt
everywhere. My father fell first, infected by some foul disease; my mother lived
on, but only in a dream. I returned to the family house to care for her where
she remained in her bed for as long as her body continued to breathe. Her tears
kept me awake at night.

------------
Message #4
------------
My journey lasted little over a month. Visiting academics in both Metropolis and
Keystone. I was exposed to a wealth of new ideas. I began my day returning home
in good spirits, eager to see my wife and family. I ended it kneeling in their
blood, broken fragments of my life pouring through dripping red fingers.

------------
Message #5
------------
I returned to my work; but I could not shake the pictures from my mind. I should
have been repulsed, but I was more eager than ever to find an explanation for
why someone would do this.

------------
Message #6
------------
They brought the animal before me, shameless and barking like a mad dog. For
what felt like days I endured his boasts. He took pleasure recounting his
actions, cataloging his depraved crimes. What should have been revenge turned to
pity, this poor dog needed my help.

------------
Message #7
------------
The island changed little over the years. Its reputation was in tatters, but I
vowed to fix it. As the buildings were rebuilt I saw the future; a bright
wonderful future.

------------
Message #8
------------
New brick, metal and paint covered old wounds. Fresh blood was injected into the
body. Bright new minds came and all swore to uphold our promises. We all know we
were the ones to fix this city. And the city would thank us.

------------
Message #9
------------
My family's killer stood in front of me. Years of therapy have deemed him sane.
I was proud to see him walk free. In exchange for his liberty the state required
only a signature. He talked about wanting to walk in a park, how he longed to
feel fresh air on his face, and then he took my father's fountain pen and killed
my secretary. As he was subdued, he screamed out, pleading for forgiveness, for
pity, but I had none. I watched as guards beat him to a stain on the floor.

------------
Message #10
------------
Spring was a turning point, a new beginning, a glorious realization of my true
destiny. My family's killer perished in an unfortunate accident. These animals
cannot be cured. Like dogs, they only respond to discipline. And if that fails,
then I was afraid that these accidents would have to continue.

------------
Message #11
------------
I took a walk around my island. I passed by the penitentiary and felt nauseous
as the thought of the filth it contained. I looked out over the Gotham Bay and
in the distance I saw lights, no doubt boats bringing more filthy degenerates to
my city. I swore again to protect her from this darkness.
------------
Message #12
------------
I argued with the last group of young, eager doctors. They bored me with
theories and ideas proving that they had no theories on how to cure these
animals. Only one shared my vision. I offered her the chance to explore her
dreams. She accepted. We'll make a good team.

------------
Message #13
------------
The Gotham police dragged a new patient to the island. They said he was
responsible for the disappearance of hundreds of the city's vagrants. As I
looked at his disgusting body, all scales and teeth, my mind free, dreaming of
delicious punishments to break this monster. Doctors gathered around, poking it,
examining, but only I know what would cure him once and for all.

------------
Message #14
------------
The beast was too strong. His animal savagery nearly cost me my life. I took my
frustrations out on a lone patient. His case notes suggested he was a paranoid
schizophrenic. His please as I beat him to death suggested much more. His
confessions were illuminating. My path was clear.

------------
Message #15
------------
Every day I found the patients more distracting. Their insane mutterings and
constant twitching disgusted me. There was only one way to cure this evil, only
one way to purify the city and ensure its future. I needed to prepare myself. I
needed to be ready.

------------
Message #16
------------
I had a sudden pang of conscience. I sought counsel from my priest on the
choices I had made. I asked him if it was a sin to kill in order to save a life.
The holy man said all life was sacred, but a judgment would not be upon my soul
if I acted to save another. I left the confessional with my soul uplifted,
convinced more than ever I am doing a service not only to mankind, but to God as
well.

------------
Message #17
------------
I watched in silence as he brought in the woman. Her skin now a venomous green,
the wonton creature no longer looked like a human being, much less a woman. The
Bible says, "Suffer not a witch to live," yet he has once again delivered this
female atrocity to our care. Once I have dealt with the monster, I think it will
be time to see if green wood does, in fact, burn.

------------
Message #18
------------
Sitting in the darkness outside of his cell, I watched the crazed twitching,
listening to the disgusting words that came from his mouth. How can I let a
dirty animal like this live? He is the cancer I have sworn to protect the city
from.

------------
Message #19
------------
Curse me for a fool. How could I not see it until now? The monster had a
confederate! I hid in the darkness near his cell and saw with my own eyes one of
the doctors whispering to him. She looked at him through the transparent barrier
with tenderness, with, dare I say, desire. My skin crawled with revoltion as she
kissed the glass.

Fighting the urge to dash the woman's head through the glass, I let her
continue; the damnable clown might have shared secrets with her that would be
useful once the mad dog has been executed. I'm sure the woman will reveal what
she knows to me. If not willingly, then certainly under electronic persuasion.
After that, a lobotomy, I think.

Unfortunate for one so young, but her lust has put the reputation of Arkham at
stake. Yes. A lobotomy, the very thing. There is no other way to ensure her
silence in this regrettable manner.

------------
Message #20
------------
Yet again I found myself watching him. No one can provide a cure. He laughs in
the face of those who try. Amadeus would not have let him live and neither
should I. One last sip of cognac and I was ready.

------------
Message #21
------------
He watched as I entered the cell. He smiled as I showed him the knife. I told
him how I will use it. How I will cleanse this city. And then terror. I was
paralyzed. I struggled. I screamed, but I was silent. The monster looked at me,
expressionless. He ran my blade slowly across my forehead, a smile cracked
across his horrible porcelain face and I heard the filth fall from his mouth. He
laughed and called me that horrible name.

------------
Message #22
------------
It must have been Crane, another one who doesnít deserve to live. Why do these
people thrive on chaos? Joker in particular desired anarchy and, since his
escape, will no doubt wreak it upon my city. I feel this is the end for my
diary. Joker will be recaptured, my story will be told. I am not afraid. If
Arkham becomes my cell, then I will know I did my best. I will be remembered.

------------
Message #23
------------
I am the spirit of Amadeus Arkham. Even though Amadeus had long since passed,
his spirit lived on, surviving, moving through the walls of his asylum. When it
chose me, I felt proud. I was honored to continue his work. To cleanse this
city. If you are strong-willed enough to follow my tales, you are strong-minded
enough to deduce my identity. Come and find me, friend. Together we will save
Gotham.

------------
Message #24
------------
My name is Quincy Sharp, the spirit of Amadeus Arkham. You have done well to
decipher my story and I prey it has helped you on your path. I trust that
through my writings you will do what is right. Please. I implore you, continue
my work. This city deserves a savior, continue my work!

Collector's Edition Dr. Young Journal Notes
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

As the title says, there was a journal that was shipped with the Collectorís
Edition of Batman: Arkham Asylum. Each Character took up two pages; one page for
a picture (same as in game bio) and height/weight stuff which I already listed
above so I wonít bother with it here. The other page contains personal entries
from Dr. Young that give us more medical insight to some of our favorite
supervillains in the Batman universe.  Each page also has some short text that's
written rather large and bold that has one of three purposes.
One; Giving us more medical / character insight.
Two; Hinting at something thatís relevant to the games plot
Three; Something just plain funny if you are familiar with the character.
I'll write those out in all caps under each characters name so you can enjoy
them too.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.01
These are the private notes of Dr. Penelope Young. They concern treatments and
diagnoses of Arkham Asylum's current inmates, and fall under patient
confidentiality laws. If this journal is found, please return it to Dr. Young
immediately.

P.02-03
THE JOKER
Real Name: Unknown
MR. WHITE?

Psychological Profile
My most challenging patient at Arkham. The Joker's derangement defies easy
classification. His rapidly changing mood swings hint at borderline personality
disorder, but he has no trace of associated identity problems. He also displays
signs of deep narcissism, but nonetheless he has a well-developed sense of
others, as his ability to manipulate everyone from orderlies to doctors in
Arkham is extraordinarily well-developed; he also shows all the signs of a
highly functioning sufferer of antisocial personality disorder. At times I
almost wonder if he is actually insane at all...

ADDITIONAL NOTES
His criminal record makes clear that he is an unrepentant homicidal maniac.

He is extremely manipulative; the file detailing Harley Quinn's associations
with him is fascinating reading. It's unfortunate I was not on staff at the time
to witness his seduction of her first hand.

His past is unknown, and his answers to my questions about it are wildly
inconsistent and frequently fantastical.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.04-05
Killer Croc
Real Name Waylon Jones
SPECIAL ENMITY WITH GUARD NAMED AARON CASH

Psychological Profile
Jones was born with a rare mutation that created a series of physical
disfigurements, which have worsened intensely with age. His skin is green and
scaly, and his body has grown to grotesque proportions. While these
disfigurations are unquestionably the source of Jones's various psychosocial
disorders, his intense misanthropy seems to also derive from an understandably
difficult childhood, which included alcoholic relatives and social rejection by
his peers. He increasingly embraces an animalist, subhuman self-conception

ADDITIONAL NOTES
His acute misanthropy makes him difficult to treat; he refuses to respond to
socialization, reacting only when he is acknowledged as a dangerous beast, which
is clearly how he views himself.

It may be that his physical disfigurements are so sever, he will never be able
to truly reintegrate into human society. This challenge is made clear by his
repeated (and occasionally successful) attempts to maim and kill the asylum's
orderlies and doctors.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

P.06-07
Mr. Zsasz
Real Name: Victor Zsasz
NOT A CANDIDATE FOR NEW RESEARCH... EXTREMELY UNSTABLE!!!

Psychological Profile
A psychopath, Zsasz would fit perfectly into the disorganized, asocial category
of serial killer if not for his special fixation on the Batman. His motives are
power and control, which he expresses quite literally by carving a scar into his
skin to make each of his victims. His obsession with the Batman is also
manifested in a physical way: he is saving a special spot to scar when he kills
the Dark Knight

ADDITIONAL NOTES
Itís rare that an asocial serial killer motivated by control would have no
history of childhood trauma; the exact reason for Zsasz's behavior remain a
mystery.

His low IQ further hampers my attempts to treat him.

He spends hours at a time ritualistically counter the marks on his skin.

P.08-09
Bane
Real Name: Unknown
CENTRAL SUBJECT FOR TITAN RESEARCH!

Psychological Profile
The worst substance abuse case I have ever personally encountered, Bane is all
but defined both physically and mentally by his use of the Venom compound. His
body is ravaged and withered when he is in withdrawal, but upon being
administered a dose of Venom, he becomes a physical monstrosity. A highly
intelligent and strategic man, his sense of self has become totally dependent on
his Venom addiction. When partaking, he displays intense narcissism, manifesting
as megalomania and a competitive preoccupation with the Batman. Deprived of the
compound, he is almost totally unresponsive in every way, approaching catatonia.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
A childhood of intense deprivation (he reportedly came of age within a prison)
resulted in a histrionic streak that has fixated him on destroying Batman in
order to seek worldwide approval.

His antisocial upbringing has given him an intensely focused mind

His addiction to Venom seems unbreakable, and the compound's effects on him are
very impressive; I cannot help but be intrigued by the possibilities locked
within this incredible substance...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

P.10-11
Harley Quinn
Real Name: Harleen Quinzel
ESCAPE RISK? KEEP SEPARATE FROM THE JOKER AT ALL TIMES!!!!

Psychological Profile
Transference is a professional danger that every psychiatrist must be ready for,
but Dr. Harleen Quinzel experienced what might be classified as delusional
transference when she convinced herself that she and the Joker were in love.
Displaying symptoms of bipolar disorder, with the Joker's mood swings as the
causative agent for her manic and depressive episodes, Quinzel also shows a high
level of dependence on the Joker. His maltreatment of her gives this dependence
a dimension of sadomasochism.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
She shows signs of extreme regression in the Joker's presence.

The excessive and invasive psychological screening I had to undergo here at
Arkham was largely due to her earlier fall from grace. At times Iím resentful of
this; the mere idea that I would have become inappropriately involved with the
Joker or any other inmate is preposterous.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.12-13
The Scarecrow
Real Name: Jonathan Crane
GENIUS AT CHEMISTRY. WOULD HAVE SOMETHING TO CONTRIBUTE TO (illegible crossed
out word) RESEARCH

Psychological Profile
Possibly one of my greatest successes here at the asylum. Despite his tendency
for extensive role play (oddly common among Gotham City's criminals), itís
unclear to me why Dr. Crane was ever considered insane. In our long discussions,
I've been impressed with his genius for psychology and biochemistry, and I fully
believe that if presented with a stock of his fear-inducing gas, he would feel
no compulsion to use it. He seems to have entirely turned away from his former
life of crime as the Scarecrow.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
He's valiantly battled a history of anxiety disorder, due to a difficult
childhood and adulthood traumas, through an intense study of psychology and the
causes of fear.

I've come to believe that the accusations that he experimented on human subjects
are wildly exaggerated.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.14-15
Poison Ivy
Real Name: Pamela Lillian Isley
(nothing of note except that her image, and everyone elseís, is made to look
like a Polaroid and has an XOXO and a lipstick kiss stain on the bottom of the
picture)

Psychological Profile
Yet another patient whose treatment is complicated by a bizarre medical
condition, Isley has a modified genetic code that incorporates plant DNA and
renders her physically toxic to others. She is essentially deeply antisocial,
believing herself to be not only inhuman, but superior to others; this diagnosis
is tied into her hypersexuality, which takes the form of a constant attempt to
seduce others to do her bidding. She also displays a narcissistic belief in her
role as a protector of the entire natural world.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
Oddly, Isley is another former doctor who is now an inmate.

She seems resentful during our treatment sessions; I believe the fact that I'm a
woman frustrates her erotomania. She desperately believes all male residents of
Arkham are at least partly in love with her.

I've been looking through her old research papers, many of which were never
published. There is some fascinating work there...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.16-17
The Ventriloquist
Real Name: Arnold Wesker
HOW DOES HE MAKE THE BILABIAL SOUNDS? ITíS UNCANNY.

Psychological Profile
Wesker is a very special case; previously he was a classic example of avoidant
personality disorder, which intensified into a violent outbreak that led to his
incarceration at Blackgate Prison. While there, he graduated into a fully
realized delusion that his ventriloquist dummy, "Scarface", is an independent
personality exerting control over him. It is possible that Wesker is a
legitimate example of multiple personality disorder. To probe this further, I've
requested that he no longer be separated from his dummy during the treatment
sessions.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
It can be very difficult to question Wesker due to constant interruptions from
"Scarface".

Weskers delusion has led him to create a complicated backstory for "Scarface",
whose personality Wesker seems to have created from poorly written, old-
fashioned gangster films.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.18-19
The Riddler
Real Name: Eddie Nashton (aka Edward Nigma)
HE SEEMS TO BE HIDING SOME SORT OF SECRET ARTIFACTS ON THE ASYLUMS GROUNDS

Psychological Profile
As with many of the inmates here, Nashton has an abnormally high IQ, but this is
tempered by his intense narcissism and obsessive-compulsive need to devise and
disseminate his (surprisingly ingenious) riddles and puzzles. If there were a
way to break this histrionic behavior and its underlying egomaniacal causes, he
could be cured. Itís a puzzle only I am truly capable of solving.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
I cannot help but admire the complexity, and yet apparent simplicity, of the
many conundrums and riddles Nashton regularly presents me with in his treatment
sessions. Often I find myself working through them in my (infrequent) free time.

His obsession with displaying his own intelligence is the central trigger for
his many personality disorders.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.20-21
Clayface
Real Name: Basil Karlo
STRONG ESCAPE RISK!

Psychological Profile
While his bizarre ability to shape-change opens him up to the obvious-if
controversial-
diagnosis of multiple personality disorder, Karlo seems instead to be suffering
from borderline personality disorder, with a special emphasis on identity
disturbance. He is difficult to pin down on any subject, and defends his wild
changes in affect as evidence of his dramatic abilities, which he considers to
be wildly underrated. Rarely does he take his own shape, but frequently mimics
me when I attempt to interview him.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
His identity is at risk of splintering, due to the growing frequency of his
adopting the identities of others to the exclusion of taking on his own.

I find his imitation of me to be especially unflattering; I am most certainly
not the bitter, calculating academic he attempts to portray me as.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.22-23
The Penguin
Real Name: Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot
SHOULD (the word "not" crossed out) NEVER BE GIVEN AN UMBRELLA.

Psychological Profile
Pushed into schizotypal behavior by an inferiority complex. Cobblepot's specific
eccentricities revolve around an obsession with ornithology and intense ideation
based around umbrellas. Even within the confines of the asylum he has managed to
create working umbrellas with "trick" features. Maltreatment by other inmates
and probings into possible sources for his insecurities always trigger intense
overcompensation on his part, in the form of rantings about his business acumen
and misunderstood intelligence

ADDITIONAL NOTES
His off-putting, antisocial behavior is frequently at odds with his need to be
valued and admired.

He is compulsive about his sartorial appearance, which conflicts with his
avoidance and denial of his physical shortcomings.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.24-25
The Mad Hatter
Real Name: Jervis Tetch
DOSAGE SHOULD BE HEAVILY INCREASED.

Psychological Profile
Tetch is a classic delusional who also displays an obsessive ideation based on
hats. He believes that he is the true-life incarnation of the Mad Hatter from
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Tetch's skills as a hypnotist and his frankly
inexplicable talent for inventions involving mind control make him at times a
dangerous patient to treat, or they would for a less stable and insightful
doctor than myself.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
Tetch is completely unmanageable when forced to bare his head, so the regulation
of Arkham patient uniform rules have been relaxed in this area to facilitate his
treatment.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.26-27
The Great White Shark
Real Name: Warren White
BIT A GUARD LAST WEEK!

Psychological Profile
At best a mild psychopath upon admittance to the asylum, White has graduated
into a full-blown case of antisocial personality disorder, partly due to
maltreatment at the hands of his fellow inmates. After severe facial
disfigurements by Mr. Freeze left him without lips, nose, ears, or hair,* White
filed down his teeth in an attempt to further differentiate himself from others.
His sense of self is now completely dependent upon his identity as a dangerous
criminal.

(* As I stated in his bio, this statement is misleading and false. While a riot
was happening in the asylum, Warren was taken prisoner by Jane Doe and threw him
into Mr. Freeze's cell. After being in the freezing cold cell for a while, he
managed to untie his bonds but "at a cost of three fingers and his right thumb".
He then fell to his knees and hit his face on the floor in frustration. This
destroyed the area from his upper lip to the bridge of his nose, thus scarring
him.)

ADDITIONAL NOTES
Some of the guards are convinced that he is running criminal rackets out of the
asylum. This has no bearing on his treatment and could provide valuable data
regarding his condition.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.28-29
Two-Face
Real Name: Harvey Dent
MEDICATION SEEMS TO BE HAVING A HIT-OR-MISS EFFECT.

Psychological Profile
A bizarre schizotypal, Dent shows intense ideation focused on the concept of
dualism. This arises out of his unique facial disfigurement (half of his face
has been scarred by acid) as shown by its emergence concurrent with the incident
that scarred him. He has no prior history of psychopathic behavior, but since
his disfigurement he has continually created situations based on positive and
negative outcomes with chance as the deciding factor. He accepts no
responsibility for the sociopathic, destructive outcomes that result
approximately 50% of the time.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
Dent's ideation around dualism extends to his clothing, his environments, and
the central toke of his psychological makeup-his half-scarred silver dollar. He
becomes catatonic if it is removed from him.

Perhaps I should be unsurprised that half of our treatment sessions are
productive. The other half are characterized by endless, pointless word games
revolving around chance and fate.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.30-31
Calendar Man
Real Name: Julian Day
CHECK PERMANENT CALENDAR BEFORE EACH VISIT...

Psychological Profile
Day suffers from schizotypal personality disorder, with ideas of reference
focusing around the calendar. He believes the major dates of the Gregorian
calendar mark times when he is personally and uniquely freed from societal
norms. On these dates, he exhibits mildly sociopathic, frequently criminal
behavior. He is in general one of the easier patients to treat here at Arkham,
except on major holidays, when he becomes impossible to handle, displaying
borderline behavior and refusing to socialize throughout the day.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
I have been unable to source his ideas of reference; I suspect incidents of
childhood trauma related to a number of major holidays.

Due to my tendency to work through the holidays during which most of other staff
take leave, I've been able to study the majority of Day's schizotypal breaks.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.32-33
Humpty Dumpty
Real Name: Humphry Dumpler
ALL CELL FURNITURE NEEDS EXTRA REINFORCEMENT

Psychological Profile
Developmentally disabled, with an IQ of just under 70 and symptoms of emotional
retardation and regression, Dumpler is also extremely obese. Dumpler's most
intriguing mental disorder is his obsessive-compulsive fixation on fixing broken
items. This manifested itself most notably in a fascinating (albeit horrific)
attempt to "fix" an abusive relative through dismemberment and reassembly.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
His imposing physique intimidates many orderlies, guards, and inmates, but his
simple mental state makes him easy to manipulate and control, so I find no
reason to be afraid of him.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.34-35
Mr. Freeze
Real Name: Dr. Victor Fries
ESCAPED!

Psychological Profile
Another surprisingly intelligent inmate. Fries's narcissism and antisocial
disorders are surpassed only by his intense fixation on his late wife Nora. His
obsession with Nora's memory has developed into a variety of psychopathic
behaviors, worsened by his narcissistic egomania and lack of concern for others.
Fries's peculiar medical condition - which keeps his body temperature below zero
and necessitates a variety of complicated and annoying security precautions -
only furthers his antisocial tendencies.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
Yet another inmate here at the asylum who was formerly a doctor; certainly an
odd pattern.

Treatment is difficult due to the frigid temperatures I am forced to endure in
his presence.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.36-37
The Ratcatcher
Real Name: Otis Flannegan
TELL MAINTENANCE TO INCREASE RAT POISON AROUND CELL.

Psychological Profile
Suffering from acute anthropomorphic delusions, Flannegan is so convinced that
he can control rats, that he has persuaded many of Arkham's inmates, orderlies,
guards, and even other doctors that he commands this fantastical ability.
Personally, I donít consider "evidence" provided by the Batman to be convincing
of anything, and find it much more likely that Flannegan has manifested a unique
variation of a Messiah complex.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
I'm hesitant to administer aggressive treatment before first doing a full write-
up on his condition; it could be an easy way to get published and procure naming
rights to a newly documented disorder.

If only there weren't so many odious vermin constantly swarming in his cell.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.38-39
Tweedledum and Tweedledee
Real Name: Deever and Dumfree Tweed
(Two happy face drawn near the top of the page)

Psychological Profile
The Tweed cousins' obsession with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is similar to
that of Jarvis Tetch, but unlike Tetch, the Tweeds are not delusional so much as
severely dependent on each other, with a shared fixation on extreme roleplay.
They know they are not Tweedledum and Tweedledee, but nonetheless delight in
acting like them. Their complex rhyming and complicated in-jokes prolong their
treatment sessions, but the intense aggression they show when separated hardly
make things easier.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
It's difficult to believe they are cousins, as they could pass as identical
twins. I suspect plastic surgery.

I avoid scheduling sessions with them on the same days I'm treating Tetch, as
otherwise the nearly endless recitation of selections from Lewis Carroll would
be enough to make even me question my sanity. Or at least my career choices.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.40-41
Black Mask
Real Name: Roman Sionis
CANDIDATE FOR ADVANCE (illegible crossed out word) RESEARCH?

Psychological Profile
A mild psychopath, Sionis has narcissistic tendencies but the main malady he
suffers from is resentful obsession with, of all people, billionaire Bruce
Wayne. Sionis is fixated on Wayne possibly due to childhood traumas that he has
projected onto the idle playboy. It is difficult to say whether the two actually
knew each other as children, or if this is Sionis's invention. However, it is
Sionis's criminal activities, and the roleplaying that resulted in the black
skull-like mask accidentally burnt into his skin, that resulted in his committal
to Arkham.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
I'd question whether Sionis is actually insane, if not for the choice of his
obsession; I can't imagine being interested in (much less stalking) such a
pointless personage as Bruce Wayne.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.42-43
Firefly
Real Name: Garfield Lynns
(Nothing worth noting on his page other than random scribbles that exist on
everyoneís page)

Psychological Profile
A dedicated pyromaniac, Lynns has embraced his disorder and, for much of his
life, managed to positively reinforce his fire-starting tendencies and related
euphoria through profits from various acts of arson. Horribly scarred by one of
his own blazes (perhaps due to a euphoric fugue that left him incapable of
escaping the flames?) Lynns's extreme pathology definitely borders on the
suicidal. Extreme treatment would be necessary to break the cycle of rewards he
has set up for himself

ADDITIONAL NOTES
He is extraordinarily adept at maintaining a cache of flammable items in his
cell, despite his tendency to burn through them, pun intended.

It is rare for a pyromantic to graduate to psychopathic behavior equal to
Lynns's extreme acts of arson. And the extensive burns on his body seem to have
barely affected him. He might be a good candidate for some of the more
experimental forms of treatment I'm developing...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.44-45
Warden Sharp
Real Name: Quincy Sharp
(A finger print on the bottom of the page)

Psychological Profile
During my tenure here at Arkham, I often find myself wondering if it is just the
patients who need help. What is it about this place that brings out the worst in
people? Warden Sharp clearly overcompensates for a variety of insecurities, and
is an excellent practitioner of avoidance and denial. He actually believes it is
he who has made a difference here, and not the doctors. The man is quite clearly
a fool and for the sake of the asylum, I hope his mayoral campaign goes well.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
Sometimes I feel his full attention is not on the job at Arkham. I imagine this
is due to his mayoral campaign, but the problem may run deeper.

His constant interference and snooping into my work has been both annoying and
patronizing.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
P.46-47
Batman
Real Name: Unknown
(Little sketch of a bat, an ink smear I can't make out, and a B with a wavy line
next to it resembling the number 3 slightly)

Psychological Profile
Despite the Batman's relationship with the Gotham City Police Department and
public perception of him as a hero, I have gathered numerous reports of his
activities from the inmates in the asylum, and have personally begun to wonder
if they are his true peer group. Purely theoretically, I would posit the man who
calls himself "Batman" as an antisocial, possibly borderline individual with
paranoid tendencies. His "crime-fighting" activities seem motivated by a belief
that criminal behavior is some kind of personal affront, his use of an alias
indicates identity disturbance, and he has a flagrant disregard for society's
norms and laws.

ADDITIONAL NOTES
I'd presume a childhood free trauma; his mix of disorders seems much more likely
to be caused by genetic predisposition, and possibly substance abuse.

His ideation around bats is peculiar and unique. My hope is to gather enough
material from Arkham's inmates to publish a psychological profile of the Batman,
in which I would name a new category for his specific affliction. Chiroptera
complex?
