Biography

Years before the events of the game, Thomas Wayne, Carmine Falcone and Mayor Hamilton Hill convicted many people who refused offers to sell them land to Arkham Asylum, a defunct mental hospital that was run for that purpose. To make sure their "insanity" looked realistic, the trio would inject a psychogenic chemical into their victims, which stripped them of moral filters and cause them to act violently.

The Arkham family, who ran the hospital, objected to the use of their facility, but were later murdered by hitmen working for Wayne and Hill. Their daughter, Vicki, was shortly adpoted by the Vales and, in later life, would become Lady Arkham, the founder and leader of the group. She tracked down and convinced other Gotham citizens who's parents had been wrongly committed to the institute to join her group and take down Gotham's corrupted society. Members who agreed to join included Oswald Cobblepot and Roland Desmond.

Episode One: Realm of Shadows

NOTICE: The events described impacted by the player's decisions. This is only a brief summary of the events that take place. Decisions made and their impacts will be show either in italics if a single decision affects the subject of the article or tabs if both decisions affect it.

At the beginning of the episode, six members of the Children of Arkham broke into City Hall, murdering a security guard on the way. Making it to the 52nd floor, they accidently activated an alarm and locked down the Mayor's office. Whilst one member tried to break open the lock with a power saw, another placed a bomb on the elevator's cables and destroyed it as it descended to the ground level for GCPD officers. Meanwhile, the leader discussed and several other members discussed rumor of the Batman. As they did, the vigilante took down one of their members, before moving on to take down another three. Batman then fought the leader, knocking him out by kicking him through the door, into the mayor's office. The last member, who was wielding the power saw, tried to attack Batman, only to be knocked out by the vigilante. Afterwards, the GCPD members managed to round up at least five of the members.

The next day, a group of them arrived at a warehouse owned by crime boss Carmine Falcone to rendezvous with Catwoman to provide them with information on the criminal and locate barrels of the psychogenic chemical. When she failed to turn up, they instead raided the entire warehouse, making large amounts of noise and attracting attention. When the police arrived, a shootout arose. One of the snipers shot a barrel of the chemical, obliterating a cop whilst driving another one insane. After the shootout finished, the members that were still alive left whilst the sniper stayed behind to incriminate Falcone.

After Batman arrived at the scene and tipped off Lt. James Gordon, he put together a rough recollection of the shootout. Using trajectory points from both the exploded barrel and a dead cop, he located and interrogated the sniper, then left him to be arrested by the GCPD. Batman also can break the sniper's arm.

Episode Two: Children of Arkham

The following day, one of their members, likely Vale, was present at the GCPD. Intercepting Sgt. Renee Montoya, they injected her with a modified version of their chemical and coerced her into killing Falcone. Montoya followed through and was briefly held in custody for the murder, whilst Oswald Cobblepot, Roland Desmond and a number of members raided the Skyline Club. There, they were confronted by Batman, who suspected Cobblepot to be responsible for Falcone's murder, a fact which he confirmed. After hearing that his men had located Catwoman, Oswald left and ordered a group of his men to find and kill her. The group managed to escape Batman, thanks to Desmond's interference.
