Arkham Asylum Bio
Amadeus Arkham founded the Elizabeth Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane, naming it after his mother, whom he euthanised as treatment for her dementia. Building it on the old grounds of his family's historic mansion on the outskirts of Gotham, Amadeus personally treated his first patient - Martin "Mad Dog" Hawkins, who had killed Amadeus' wife and daughter. After administering fatal electroshock treatments to Hawkins, Amadeus lost all grip on his sanity and was admitted to his own institution.

Additional Information
Amadeus came late to psychiatry, after originally working as a pharmacist in Metropolis and then later a forensic scientist for the Gotham State Police. After seeing his mother's descent into madness, Amadeus made his return to Gotham permanent and converted the family home, Mercy Mansion, into the psychiatric hospital known as Arkham Asylum.

Possible role in Arkham 3
The Spirit of Arkham was just the beginning; what other secrets did Amadeus hide in the Asylum's walls?

The question is, is Sharp actually channeling the spirit of Amadeum or was that just part of Stranges hypnotism?

He's dead. He really has the same chances of showing up in the game as Jonah Hex does, but in mention form I'd say 2 out of 10 as well. And ACD, you might be thinking of Dr. Jeremiah Arkham.
I loathe you. You have no manners, you're arrogant, and conceited, and I wrote you a letter about it, in fact.

I'd like to think Sharp was influenced in the same was Jeremiah was, as it was confirmed that Sharp also had a fragile mind. Amadeus LIVES within the walls of Arkham, and his presence influences many within the asylum walls.

This.

If the Arkham games are (eventually) a trilogy, it wouldn't be unnatural to bring back some elements from the first chapter like Nolan did in TDKR.

Yeah, why not, sounds logical

Well, there were a few loose ends where he was concerned. Maybe he will appear in a flashback, like some have suggested. Maybe a Scarecrow nightmare or something....
I'm crazy enough to take on Batman, but the IRS?! No thank you!

I enjoyed listening to his story in Asylum so I wouldn't mind seeing him influence the next game in some kind of way.
Nobody cared who I was until I put on the mask.
