Arkham City Bio


Additional Information
Left vulnerable after the death of his mother, Harold was 'adopted' by Oswald Cobblepot to fix stolen goods. Mistreated by the Penguin and his thugs, Harold's life was not pleasant, but he believed that it was better than anything that he could hope for in the outside world; a view that the Penguin encouraged.
Harold was rescued from the slavish conditions of the Iceberg Lounge by the Batman, who offered him shelter when Harold refused freedom. Harold has lived in a custom made cabin in the Batcave and worked as Batman's mechanic ever since, often refusing Batman's offers of setting up a new life.

Possible role in Arkham 3
Harold provides upgrades to Batman's vehicles when he returns to the cave. Upgrades would operate in a similar manner to the WayneTech store in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.

Essential reading

Chances of Appearing: -10/10

I remember when Harold was introduced, and how he was actually quite quickly incorporated into the mythos, but before long, writers forgot about him until he all but vanished. I was actually quite surprised anyone remembered him when he showed up again, but I think pretty much everyone knew what his re-emergence meant when it came from out of nowhere.

That said though, there's no way he's going to show up in Arkham games. At best, you might get a reference, but I really doubt it.
It's not who I am's what I do that defines me.

2/10 - Reference time.

I can't see much being done with the character as he is now. If he were to already exist I'd have liked a reference, riddle or cameo already. But I was just thinking while writing this, it could be cool if they retconned the guy into something slightly different for their universe - I could imagine something like the mechanic Earl Cooper from BTAS' "The Mechanic", where he owes Batman some favours after saving him years earlier.

Come to think of it, that area would make for the perfect vehicle mini hub if they're going to go all-out free roam.

So if they're going to do something like that then maybe a 3.5/10?

Once again, I'm amazed at how you discover all these characters R_R :lol:

Like Enigma said, he could maybe work as part of a Batcave hub, with different sections allowing access to certain files/info - one area being dedicated to gadgets, with Harold working there.
