Arkham City Bio
Years ago, Michael Lane was part of a program to create the ultimate crime fighter. Instead, it turned him into an insane criminal.
Thwarted by Batman, Michael confessed his sins to a priest of the secret religious sect, the Order of Purity. They recruited Michael to fight evil as their crusader Azrael, wearing the mystical Suit of Sorrows and wielding the Sword of Sin.
If Michael does not keep his soul pure, the Suit of Sorrows will destroy him.

Image

Additional Information
The Order of Purity is an unsanctioned offshoot of the Order of St. Dumas, that lacks the political or financial resources of the order proper. Jean-Paul Valley, was the last in a long line of warriors conditioned from the womb by the Order of St. Dumas to fight as their avenging angel, Azrael.
Michael Lane is the start of something new.
A former marine and police officer, Lane had a breakdown after the deaths of his son, wife and siblings came in quick succession. During this time of mental unease, Lane was drafted by the Order of Purity. The Order gave him two alchemical swords and the cursed Suit of Sorrows, which is said to gift advanced speed and strength, but drive an impure man mad from the weight of his sins.

Possible role in Arkham 3
Dark days are coming, Batman. The prophecy is coming true. You are the warrior who will close the gates of hell. You are the one who will save this day, and in doing so events will occur that you cannot stop. From the ashes of Arkham, the fires will rage and Gotham will burn. You will burn too.
There is no doubt that Azrael will be a key player in Arkham 3. A portent of doom and potential ally of the Bat in the fight to prevent it. With the maddening effects of the Suit of Sorrows and the dubious motives of the Order of Purity, however, will Azrael be an ally that Batman can trust?

Essential reading
Azrael: Death's Dark Knight, Azrael: Angel in the Dark, Batman: Gotham Shall Be Judged

Chances of appearing in Arkham3

Sounds like something out of an RPG.

He will definitely be in A3(if there is an A3 game).I love the idea of the prophecy coming true.

No doubt Azreal is gonna be involved in A3. However I think his appearance may only be at the near end of the game, just as 'Gotham is about to burn.' It would be a cool 'I told you so' moment in a way.

I think it would be awesome if Azrael was a playable character in A3, replacing Catwoman. It would be a chance for Rocksteady to develop a different fighting style (since Azrael has his swords) and it would be much better to have a second character whose storyline ties into Batman's, as opposed to Catwoman's which only tied in at one point and was pretty minor. Cool design on the character by RS as well.

He may have lay down a potential storyline for a sequel for AC, but he still feels like a shallow character that Rocksteady just threw in for kicks. Wouldn't mind seeing him expanded in a possible sequel though.

Is it really a 10/10 probability? Unless its officially announced nothing is for certain.

It will be awesome to see what they comes up with in A3, it would be an epic fail if there was an Arkham 3 and Azrael did not show up :heath:

Yeah, Azrael is one of few characters who I fully expect to turn up either in the next game or in some episodic DLC later this year, along with Hush & Scarecrow.
