    ================================
    
     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!

    extensively to achieve mental and physical perfection, in addition to mastering

    As an insanely homicidal supervillain, the Joker's white skin, green hair, and
    blood-red lips belie the chaotic nature underlying his cartoonish appearance.

    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!

    Patient Interviews:
    ------------------------------
    Patient Interview #1, February 12th
    ------------------------------
    Warden Sharp: Is he here yet?
    
    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.
    
    ------------------------------
    Patient Interview #2, February 17th
    ------------------------------
    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.
    
    Croc: You think? (Laughs) Keep believing that, Doc.
    
    ------------------------------
    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?
    
    Croc: Strap on whatever you like, Doc. This thing just tickles.
    Iím happy to wait here. Wait for the Bat. He'll be back and I'll kill him. Then
    Cash. Then you.
    
    Aaron Cash: In your dreams. Now get up. Now!
    
    ------------------------------
    Patient Interview #6, February 26th
    ------------------------------
    Dr. Whistler: Patient interview Waylon Jones. Progress has been slow.
    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?
    
    Croc: After a while. Usually takes about 8 hours. (Laughs)
    
    Aaron Cash: Time to go, Croc. Get up!
    
    ------------------------------

    left hand. Cash is lucky to be alive. He lost a lot of blood.

    Dr. Whistler: That's disgusting. He could have died.
    
    Croc: He's just food to me. And once I get a taste, I want the rest of the meal.
    You know what I mean?
    
    Dr. Whistler: Get him out of here. Now!
    
    Croc: (Laughs) Got your scent too, lady! I'll see you around. Tick tock, tick
    tock. (Laughs)

    ==============================
    Story:
    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
    motivation, beyond general mayhem, is achieving The Joker's approval. Because of
    his cruel and mercurial nature, this in some ways makes her just another of his
    victims, albeit, a very dangerous one.
    
    Facts:
    Real Name: Dr. Harleen Quinzel
    
    Occupation: Professional Criminal
    
    Base of Operations: Gotham City
    
    Eyes: Blue
    
    Hair: Blonde*
    
    Height: 5 ft 7 in
    
    Weight: 140 lb
    
    First Appearance: Batman: Harley Quinn #1 (October, 1999)**
    
    (*She has stated that she is not a real blonde, but Iím just nitpicking)
    (** Her actual first appearance was in the animated series on September 11th,
    1992 in the episode titled Jokers Favor)
    
    Attributes:
    > Surprising strength and stamina
    > Superior gymnastic skills
    > Total disregard for human life*
    > Like The Joker, she is a homicidal psychotic who escapes easy classification
    (* they list something like this but fail to mention that she has total immunity
    to Ivy's toxins thanks to an injection Ivy gave her and the fact that Harley
    actually crawled out of Hell itself)
    
    Patient Interviews:
    ------------------------------
    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.

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

    on it as a reflection of his half-scarred visage. He flips it to decide the

    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.)

    hatch a series of bizarre plots based around genetics and mind control in order
    to defeat the Batman and possibly take his place. Strange's fragile mental state

    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 Interviews:

    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?

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

    doctor too. How can you turn your back on us?

    lonely, would you?

    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.

    Story:
    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

    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?

    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
    Ventriloquist, acts out a dark side to his personality, Wesker himself believes

    evil of insanity from Arkham. In his demented state, he has stalked and killed

    My family's blood ran through the heart of Gotham. We were doctors, politicians

    We have been its servants giving all to protect it. And still it has chosen to
    hurt us.

    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.

    My journey lasted little over a month. Visiting academics in both Metropolis and

    blood, broken fragments of my life pouring through dripping red fingers.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    dreams. She accepted. We'll make a good team.

    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.

    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

    confessions were illuminating. My path was clear.

    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

    needed to be ready.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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?
