General Information
Real name: Ian Chase
First Appearance: Batman: Arkham Origins

Ian Chase is a socialite and presumed mobster, as well as a murderer.


Batman: Arkham OriginsEdit

During a Halloween party at Wayne Manor, Ian Chase ended up causing a disturbance (presumably by harassing Clarissa Rodriguez, based on a comment made by Alfred), forcing Bruce Wayne to throw him out. Two months later, on Christmas, Chase, by that time a gang member to the Joker (who had taken over Black Mask's gang) went to Crime Alley and proceeded to murder both Rodriguez and her fiancée, Horace Riley, by shooting her in the heart, and shooting him in the lung, respectively, coincidentally at the same spot that Wayne's parents had been murdered during a mugging during Wayne's childhood (it's implied that he did this out of a grudge from a unrequited love triangle, where Clarissa went with Horace instead of him). Although Chase managed to clean up the area by removing most of the bullet casings, he missed one inside of the grate. Batman, Bruce Wayne's alter ego, managed to uncover the murder and deduced Chase's role in their murder. Batman then tracked Chase down to the Industrial District, where Chase alongside other mobsters were discussing his role in the murder (dialogue suggests that he would have been the number one suspect in Riley and Rodriguez's murders, but could not be convicted without proof). Batman then ended up attacking Chase and nearly killing him due to his petty reason for committing the murders before Alfred calmed him down.


  • It is suspected that Ian Chase was part of either Black Mask or the Joker's gang, due to both his presence at the Sionis Steel Mill when Batman apprehended him as well as his wearing a clown mask (which is what all of Black Mask's gang members started wearing after Joker openly revealed himself to have taken over Black Mask's operations).
  • It's possible that the reason Batman nearly killed Ian Chase was because in his detective mode, we see Bruce Wayne's parents on the ground for a brief moment when Ian shot Horace Riley and Clarissa Rodriguez, which reminded him of his parents' death, since Crime Alley is where his parents died.
