Arkham Asylum Bio
Once employed as an actual rat catcher in Gotham City, Otis Flannegan soon started using his natural gift - an affinity with and ability to control rats - to stage a variety of crimes. Eventually his control over the vermin grew until he threatened Gotham City with a veritable army of rodents.
Incarcerated many times at Blackgate, he's able to do as much damage within prison as without, using his loyal pets to relay messages and transport materials inside the maze of ventilation ducts that wind throughout the giant prison.

Arkham City Story
Otis Flannegan, aka the Ratcatcher, looked through the cellar window on the opening day of Arkham City. He had kept out of trouble so far, but he would need a plan to survive. Arkham City claimed to be escape-proof and the Penguin had the illicit goods market sewn up, so Ratcatcher would sell small comforts.
Fine soap, breath mints, extra buttons; he sent his rats out to collect ssuch items from the outside world. it worked, business was brisk and he felt safe, until the Penguin came looking for his rival vendor.
Flannegan was dragged screaming through the streets of Arkham City, followed by a trail of rats, into the museum and never to be seen again.

Chances of appearing in Arkham 3: 6/10. I think he would be great in Arkham 3 because he is a great villain and he hasn't been seen yet. He may not appear in Arkham 3 as it is implied in Arkham City that he was murdered.

Additional Information: I dislike it when people never give other character a chance and Ratcatcher is one of those people that deserve one! :)

Possible Role in Arkham 3: After a gruesome murder involving rats eating people Batman has to investigate where Ratcatcher is and subdue him before more victims start appearing from the sewers......... or the museum! Penguin ended up losing his museum after a visit from Batman and ever since then Otis Flannegan has been operating under its depths to survive and try and exact his own revenge from the person that threw him down there!

Essential Reading: Batman Shadow of the Bat, Batman No Man's Land Vol.2, Batman Blackgate, Batman Vengeance of Bane II, Batman Cataclysm and Batman #555.

Chances of Appearing in Arkham 3: 7/10

He'd be an interesting character to see in the Arkhamverse, even if I'm not overly fond of rats.
I'm crazy enough to take on Batman, but the IRS?! No thank you!

The fact that Penguin dragged him into his mueseum and never seen again makes me think it's very unlikely he survived

Chances of appearance:6/10

Possible Role in A3:
After being dragged into the museum and being drugged by the penguin into unconsciousness, Otis Flannegan woke up in a display case tied down to the ground with a thug laughing and pointing at him, he then heard on the overhead speaker in the museum that Batman had been sighted close to Penguin's compound, giving him the perfect chance for escape. After using rats to bite the ropes off his wrist, and sneak the keys to him, he made a hasty escape managing to stay tucked away safe in a city dumpster during the infamous bombing of AC.
After the shutting down of arkham, he managed to avoid capture and is at large, with the penguin locked up at the rat infested Blackgate prison and his gang falling under the influence of Two-Face, Penguin is easy prey for the Ratcatcher. Does Otis want the ultimate revenge? Can he , a lowly ratcatcher kill one of the biggest crimelords in Gotham? Or will Batman use cobblepot as bait for yet another trap to finally stop Flannegan? only time will tell.
Dear God. Is this what I have become? More animal than man. When will the surrender be complete?

Chance of Appearing in Arkham 3: probably 5/10. I don't expect him to, but still he might anyway.

Don't really know.
