Additional Information
Henri Ducard was a skilled assassin who attracted many enemies. One of these enemies hired a woman to kill him, but instead she and Ducard had a child, Morgan.
Ducard met Bruce Wayne in Paris, training him in investigation and "manhunting" skills after he proved his worth by beating his son. A rivalry developed between Bruce and Morgan as the relationship between father and son deteriorated.
Ducard later took a hand in the training of Tm Drake during his pre-Robin traing tour of Europe. Together the two crippled a drug ring that stretched from Hong Kong, through Europe and into Gotham.

Possible role in Arkham 3
Henri Ducard has been tracking his son, Morgan, for the last few months. Morgan has snapped and is killing anyone to whom his father has given training. Ducard approaches the Batman, recognising that it is Bruce Wayne, to warn him that Morgan is coming for him. Ducard works with his former students, Batman and Robin, to track clues of Morgan's entry to Gotham and take him down before he can rack up a body count.

Essential reading
Detective Comics #599-600; Robin I (miniseries); Batman & Robin v2 #5-6

I recall the name from Batman Begins, I didn't realise he was an actual character from the comics.

Henri Ducard was one of Bruce mentors . The reboot changed what happened during that time . Bruce trained with Henri and his son Morgan while tracking down a terrorist . Bruce thought Henri was hired to arrest the man for Interpol , but once they got him Ducard revealed himself as a contract killer . Bruce wanted out but Henri ordered his son to silence him .... it did not end well for Morgan . Henri did not longer accept him as his son .
Years later Morgan returned ....it is not known what happened to Henri .

His new look was insprired by Leon from the movie "the Professional"

Could definitely make an appearance seeing as Arkham Origins is a prequel and the world best assassins are after him, could warn him of it.
