All right, am WIPing.  Might take me a day.

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
== Character Bio ==
== Personal Information ==
Legal Name: Richard J. Grayson
Alias:  Dick, Robin, The Boy Wonder
Age: 19
Sexuality:  Male
Part of Gotham Residing In:  Gotham University

== Physical Description ==
Dick Grayson is a 5'11, 185 lbs. human male who possesses the strength, speed and endurance of an Olympic athlete.  He has thick black hair with piercing blue eyes.  Grayson regularly forgoes comfort for style in his dress.  When he isn't in a tailored, ridiculously-priced suit (always with a slim silk tie), he's wearing fitted jeans, motorcycle boots and his favorite leather jacket.

== Persona ==
Dynamic Duo:  As Robin, Dick Grayson is committed to the Batman's war on crime, and similarly utilizes his mentor's methods in his pursuit of justice.  He opposes the use of lethal force and the use of firearms.  He is socially-conscious and sympathizes with criminals who are a product of socio-economic circumstances.  He is always willing to give individuals a second chance.  He prefers to use reason in the acquisition of information instead of intimidation.  With Batman, he understands his role and, for the most part, understands the Bat.  On missions, the two are on the same page and do not actually need to communicate.

Team Player:  Grayson is friendly and outgoing.  He is sensitive to the needs of others and sympathetic to their problems.  He understands people, and can sense and/or detect their general dispositions.  He can accept criticism without becoming angry, and in turn, he does not express his opinions in a critical way.  He is outgoing and making friends comes easy to him.  He is trustworthy.  In his childhood, he exhibited numerous issues with immaturity, arrogance and over-compensation.  His development as Robin has churned out a responsible, humble and confident adult.  He is loyal to Batman, teammates and friends.  Still, he can be a bit too playful, and can be dismissive of serious situations.

Language:  Robin loves idioms, puns and riddles.  He likes good jokes.  He is an avid crossword enthusiast.  He is his group's "Words With Friends" champ.

== Key Skills ==
World Class Martial Artist:  Dick Grayson is a trained martial artist and has mastered various forms of hand-to-hand combat, including Karate, Aekido, Jujitsu and Tae Kwon Do.  His preferred method of combat is Silat with unbreakable polymer eskrima sticks.  Grayson was trained by Batman, but has sharpened his skills sparring with his friends.

World's Greatest Acrobat:  Since his days at Haley's Circus, Dick Grayson has been an incredible aerialist and acrobat.  He can perform amazing feats on a trapeze, and should be considered to be at peak physical condition.

Expert Criminologist and Detective:  Grayson is an expert in all forms of detection, including forensics, ballistics, finance examination, etc.

== Advantages ==

Access to Gadgets & Technology:  Dick Grayson has access to an arsenal of gadgets and vehicles, including batarangs, non-lethal incendiaries and explosives.  He has access to the Bat Computer, one of the most powerful computers on the planet.  He regularly employs a Bat Cycle when flying solo.

Access to Wealth:  Dick Grayson was left a legacy by his parents, and that money was converted into a small fortune by Bruce Wayne's right-hand man, Lucius Fox.  He is also Bruce's legal ward, and has never had want for anything, both as Dick Grayson and Robin.

Trained by Batman:  Batman has trained Robin in all manners of skills, including chemical and structural engineering, escape-artistry, survival craft, tracking, stealth and more.  He was expected to practice skills that would be useful after homework every day.

== Disadvantages ==
Public Figure (Famous, as Dick Grayson)
Enemies

== Background ==
Orphaned at a young age, Dick Grayson was recruited by the Batman to wage a war on crime as Robin, the Boy Wonder!

Character 2: Mobster
== Character Bio ==
== Personal Information ==
Legal Name:Luisa Falcone
Alias:N/A
Age:23
Sexuality:Bisexual
Part of Gotham Residing In:Bank Street, between Jay Avenue and Parsons Street

== Physical Description ==
Already fairly young, Luisa has a youthful demeanor about her, giving the air of someone just out of high school. She's not the most threatening physically, standing 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing 145 pounds. Wearing her black hair in a ponytail when not with family, lovers, or familial lovers, Luisa generally prefers to avoid the black suits that the traditional mobster wears. She doesn't have any objection to wearing a suit, but when she has a choice about color, she prefers a dark red or blue suit, almost concealing her average-sized bosom completely, although her tight backside is usually clad in tight suitpants to show off that particular area of her anatomy. To finish the outfit, she usually wears stilettos, unless she senses that there is a possibility of ambush, in which case she wears small wedges to enable more of an opportunity to move quickly. Her eyes are normally dark green, but she has been known to wear clear contacts to change their color if she's going into "enemy territory". One thing that many people alive haven't seen is a scar on her right breast, a memento of a fight gone horribly wrong in college.

== Persona ==
Luisa is generally described as a "cold dish" or "ice queen", but in truth, she's more of a social chameleon. When "on the job", she masks her personality to be whatever she feels is appropriate for the role she is playing. When she isn't needed in a specific role, she reverts to her normal personality. Unfortunately, that normal personality is next to nonexistent. She is quick to smile, quick to joke, but anyone who knows her well know that facet of her personality is just another mask. Anyone who doesn't know her well might just be fooled. She is, after all, a mistress of blending in.

== Key Skills ==
Highly capable with melee weapons
A consummate actor, able to be whoever she needs to be
 
== Advantages ==
Intelligent: Luisa didn't just make it through school on her family name and money. She is quite intelligent, able to study a plan, spot most flaws, and execute the plan perfectly. There is one facet of planning she is unable to accurately pull off (see entry 3, disadvantages), but she has the knowledge of such, and will take advice on anything involving that facet. In addition, she's known to spend days studying targets, learning their weaknesses and strengths, then planning ahead to take advantage of those weaknesses.

Unscrupulous: Luisa doesn't see things as right or wrong. If it's something that needs to be done, she does it without asking questions, never doubting herself. That lack of self-doubt, lack of conscience, can leave her having the advantage. Where one person may hesitate to hurt or kill, she has no hesitation whatsoever.

Unshakeable: Luisa is not loyal to anyone, or anything, except her family. For that reason, if she is set by her family to do something, there is nothing that can be done to dissuade her. Begging and pleading will get her targets nowhere, and on the few times someone's thought to bribe her, she's taken the bribe, double-crossed the briber, then used the bribe for her own purposes. If she is told to do something, the only thing that will dissuade her is a threat, and even that will only last until the next time she strikes.

== Disadvantages ==

Sociopath/Borderline Personality Disorder: Quite simply, Luisa is a series of masks in human form. Emotions that she expresses are almost always false. While she is good at acting, she is just that, an actor. She can mask her lack of personality from acquaintances, but anyone who knows her well, or has studied up on her, will not be fooled, taking away a prime asset simply through homework.

Criminal History: Most of the Falcones have a criminal history that is mostly or entirely spotless, through careful bribes. However, Luisa is an exception. In her time away at college, she had several transgressions, and served jail time for larceny. With that blemish on her record, if any of the Falcones drop the ball, she is always going to be one of the first to be in trouble, simply because the police have something on her that they don't have on the others: priors.

Unable to Predict Reactions: Luisa understands emotions perfectly...in an intellectual way. She knows exactly how to look, talk, and act like an emotion. Where she fails is at realizing how others will react due to their emotions. She is able to perfectly predict the most logical course of action, but when it comes time to predicting how others will react, she will almost invariably fail, as she is unable to understand illogical actions. If she can see what should be done, why can't they?

== Background ==
For a while, Luisa seemed set in life. Using her family's money, she went through private schools, excelling in her classes even as she was set apart from the class in ability and attitude. Enrolling in a private college outside the city at the age of 18, Luisa was ready to go.

That all changed swiftly. Without her family to keep her in mind, Luisa got into trouble. After encouraging two suitors to fight over her, Luisa miscalculated the adrenaline rush on the stronger of the suitors, turning him down when he asked her back to his dorm room. When she refused calmly, he realized that she had played him for a fool. With the knife he had used in the fight, he turned on her, managing to stab her in the chest before the other suitor and nearby students could intervene.

When questioned at the hospital, Luisa put on the act of her life, tearfully telling the story of how the suitor had just gone crazy, attacking her in the mistaken belief that she had led him on. From that moment, Luisa knew that she was born to act. Unfortunately for her, the dream of going to acting school evaporated when she stole another student's wallet, emptying the cash from it before calmly handing it back. She didn't need the money, nor did she particularly want the money. She just wanted to know how it felt to steal. She put on her act again in court, claiming that she had found the wallet and was merely returning it, but the acting that had got her through her assault case uncharged failed to do the same here. Spending 6 months in jail for petty theft, as well as facing expulsion, Luisa returned home.

Once there, her family took her in. They weren't disappointed in her actions. They were disappointed in her failure to get out of trouble. For that reason, she was carefully taught how to feel. Or at least, how to pretend to feel. In actuality, the only thing she felt was boredom, except for when she was distracted, either by her lessons or taking her teachers both in and out of family to bed. Through this, she learned that she needed occupation to keep from being bored, and that was all she needed.

This character admittedly seems to benefit from a lot of NPC power backing him both as DA and as a criminal gang leader.  You'll have to let know if it's too much and in general how you might wish for me to handle things.  Also I don't actually use the name Two-Face as I figure that's what he'd be labeled only after he's exposed and starts letting fate/the coin decide things. 

Harvey Dent/Two-Face
== Character Bio ==
== Personal Information ==
Legal Name: Harvey Dent
Alias: Janus (to be Two-Face)
Age: 34
Sexuality: Bisexual
Part of Gotham Residing In: Uptown

== Physical Description ==
Harvey Dent stands at 6’1” with a lean broad shouldered build, blue eyes, blond hair, altogether giving off an air of confidence and strength.  Janus’s appearance is unknown. 

== Persona ==
Harvey Dent is a passionate man, passionate about justice, passionate about Gotham City, passionate about the future.  As an attorney, he made a fast name for himself as hard-nosed, dedicated, and thoroughly incorruptible, racking up a stunning record of successful prosecutions in a very short amount of time.  Elected DA four years ago, his tireless efforts to clean up the city have only intensified, and Dent seems genuinely fearless and almost fanatically dedicated in his effort to wipe out organized crime and make Gotham once again safe for honest businessmen and families.     

Janus is a passionate man, passionate about power, passionate about control, passionate about his future.  The mysterious head of the Janus organization appeared seemingly out of nowhere four years ago and has been systematically absorbing the operations of Gotham’s faltering criminal enterprises ever since.  Violent, ruthless, and methodical, he acts largely by proxy, leading some to speculate there is no leader at all, merely a rotating board of directors or a front for some larger internationalist syndicate that prefers it’s presence remain unknown.  So far all investigations have led to dead ends…or dead bodies, at any rate. 

== Key Skills ==
Masterful Lawyer:  Harvey Dent may be one of the finest lawyers in the country, his ability to organize and present an airtight case almost unparalleled in Gotham’s recent history. 

Organizational Mastermind:  Harvey Dent’s DA office is a tightly run ship and he never employs a man or woman he doesn’t trust thoroughly.  Janus’s gang is a tightly run ship and he never employs a man or woman he doesn’t trust thoroughly. 

== Advantages ==
Public Figure:  Harvey Dent is one of the most recognizable faces in the city, well loved by the public, and courted by many politicians who know his support and endorsement is seen by the citizens as a byword for honesty and trustworthiness.  From Bruce Wayne to the Mayor to any number of local celebrities, the doors of Gotham’s most powerful and prestigious are wide open to him.

District Attorney:  Harvey Dent has important friends, including people in city government and the police force.  Powerful help is usually just a phone call away.

Criminal Enterprise:  Janus runs an increasingly powerful criminal organization, employing hoodlums of various stripes.  They create a buffer between him and anyone who might wish to bring him down.


== Disadvantages ==
Enemies:  Harvey Dent has earned the ire of Gotham’s criminal families as well as any number of dangerous sociopaths he and his team have helped place behind bars.  Gotham might weep at his death, but in private many champagne bottles would likely be uncorked that day.    Janus has earned the ire of Gotham’s crime families by taking advantage of their weakness, sweeping up their businesses, ruthlessly eliminating those who remain loyal to them, and in general positioning himself as the next major player in the Gotham underworld.  A number of contracts have been placed on him but with so little known, no one has yet come even close to cashing in.

Average Physique:  Harvey Dent has no background in fighting, knows no martial arts, is not a talented marksman, and otherwise is no stronger than any other athletically fit man of his size and physique. 

Split Personality:  Harvey Dent is Janus; Janus is Harvey Dent.  He is a crusader for law and order.  He is a criminal par excellence.  Depending on which personality is currently in control he will act accordingly.  Having as yet developed no means to easily decide between the two warring voices, this can lead to a great deal of internal conflict. 

Sincerity:  Harvey Dent is genuine.  He really does believe in cleaning up Gotham and the rightness of his cause, that justice and fairness are rights guaranteed to all.  Janus is also genuine.  He really does believe that power and greed run the world, and the strongest have a right to dominate the weakest.  Bets are not hedged between the two, and as a result he is at times working at cross purposes with himself, supporting causes and people that will make his other self’s life more difficult as a result.

== Background ==
Harvey Dent was born to a wealthy family, his father a longstanding member of the city council, and grew up attending the same social functions and private school as any number of Gotham’s elite.  He spent his youth observing up close the downwards spiral of this once great city, his father frequently the subject of death threats by mobsters and constantly stymied in his reform efforts by an endless series of corrupt officials.  He witnessed up close the terrible suffering endured by his boyhood friend, Bruce Wayne, when his parents were gunned down by unknown criminals, and never brought to justice.   

Unlike Bruce, however, Harvey was not content to hide away in his mansion and his wealth and draw a curtain against the troubles of the real world.  He was determined to do something and dedicated his life to the pursuit of justice and the revival of Gotham City, graduating law school and passing the bar at a stunningly young age.  Harvey Dent became one of the most renowned prosecuting attorneys in the state, tireless in his efforts, bringing charges against some of the most dangerous and seemingly untouchable criminals in Gotham’s underworld.  When he was elected District Attorney, it was heralded as a great change in the city’s fortune, a new era in which the old lawless corrupt ways were to be swept aside in a new tide of youthful energy and optimism.

Unfortunately, behind the scenes things were less perfect.  For every criminal Dent put behind bars, it seemed another more ruthless one took his place.  The criminal rackets and invested corruption never seemed to disappear, only changed faces, and as Harvey’s anger and frustration mounted, he decided on a simple new tactic to try.  There was no point in pulling weeds while leaving the field open for the next infestation to take root.  But what if someone was planted there first?  Someone like himself?

What started as a game soon became an obsession, all the darkest parts of Dent’s personality, festering after years of witnessing the pointlessness of his own crusade for justice and the abiding evil of men that thwarted him at every turn, forming into their separate personality.  Nicknamed Janus, his criminal empire has begun to slowly expand, absorbing the holdings of Gotham’s traditional crime families, exhibiting a brutality, violence, and lack of respect for the underworld’s rules not witnessed in years. 

And now Dent and Janus war against each other even as they war against Gotham, one still pursuing law and order, and the other becoming increasingly enmeshed in the heady world of absolute power and criminality.  Can one man sustain such a duality forever or is there a breaking point?  Will he be one or the other…and how can he be made choose between his own warring natures?

District Attorney:  Harvey Dent has important friends, including people in city government and the police force.  Powerful help is usually just a phone call away.

Criminal Enterprise:  Janus runs an increasingly powerful criminal organization, employing hoodlums of various stripes.  They create a buffer between him and anyone who might wish to bring him down.


== Disadvantages ==
Enemies:  Harvey Dent has earned the ire of Gotham’s criminal families as well as any number of dangerous sociopaths he and his team have helped place behind bars.  Gotham might weep at his death, but in private many champagne bottles would likely be uncorked that day.    Janus has earned the ire of Gotham’s crime families by taking advantage of their weakness, sweeping up their businesses, ruthlessly eliminating those who remain loyal to them, and in general positioning himself as the next major player in the Gotham underworld.  A number of contracts have been placed on him but with so little known, no one has yet come even close to cashing in.

Average Physique:  Harvey Dent has no background in fighting, knows no martial arts, is not a talented marksman, and otherwise is no stronger than any other athletically fit man of his size and physique. 

Split Personality:  Harvey Dent is Janus; Janus is Harvey Dent.  He is a crusader for law and order.  He is a criminal par excellence.  Depending on which personality is currently in control he will act accordingly.  Having as yet developed no means to easily decide between the two warring voices, this can lead to a great deal of internal conflict. 

Sincerity:  Harvey Dent is genuine.  He really does believe in cleaning up Gotham and the rightness of his cause, that justice and fairness are rights guaranteed to all.  Janus is also genuine.  He really does believe that power and greed run the world, and the strongest have a right to dominate the weakest.  Bets are not hedged between the two, and as a result he is at times working at cross purposes with himself, supporting causes and people that will make his other self’s life more difficult as a result.

== Background ==
Harvey Dent was born to a wealthy family, his father a longstanding member of the city council, and grew up attending the same social functions and private school as any number of Gotham’s elite.  He spent his youth observing up close the downwards spiral of this once great city, his father frequently the subject of death threats by mobsters and constantly stymied in his reform efforts by an endless series of corrupt officials.  He witnessed up close the terrible suffering endured by his boyhood friend, Bruce Wayne, when his parents were gunned down by unknown criminals, and never brought to justice.   

Unlike Bruce, however, Harvey was not content to hide away in his mansion and his wealth and draw a curtain against the troubles of the real world.  He was determined to do something and dedicated his life to the pursuit of justice and the revival of Gotham City, graduating law school and passing the bar at a stunningly young age.  Harvey Dent became one of the most renowned prosecuting attorneys in the state, tireless in his efforts, bringing charges against some of the most dangerous and seemingly untouchable criminals in Gotham’s underworld.  When he was elected District Attorney, it was heralded as a great change in the city’s fortune, a new era in which the old lawless corrupt ways were to be swept aside in a new tide of youthful energy and optimism.

Unfortunately, behind the scenes things were less perfect.  For every criminal Dent put behind bars, it seemed another more ruthless one took his place.  The criminal rackets and invested corruption never seemed to disappear, only changed faces, and as Harvey’s anger and frustration mounted, he decided on a simple new tactic to try.  There was no point in pulling weeds while leaving the field open for the next infestation to take root.  But what if someone was planted there first?  Someone like himself?

What started as a game soon became an obsession, all the darkest parts of Dent’s personality, festering after years of witnessing the pointlessness of his own crusade for justice and the abiding evil of men that thwarted him at every turn, forming into their separate personality.  Nicknamed Janus, his criminal empire has begun to slowly expand, absorbing the holdings of Gotham’s traditional crime families, exhibiting a brutality, violence, and lack of respect for the underworld’s rules not witnessed in years. 

And now Dent and Janus war against each other even as they war against Gotham, one still pursuing law and order, and the other becoming increasingly enmeshed in the heady world of absolute power and criminality.  Can one man sustain such a duality forever or is there a breaking point?  Will he be one or the other…and how can he be made choose between his own warring natures?

Ready for inspection!

Character 2: Mobster
== Character Bio ==
== Personal Information ==
Legal Name:Luisa Falcone
Alias:N/A
Age:23
Sexuality:Bisexual
Part of Gotham Residing In:Bank Street, between Jay Avenue and Parsons Street

== Physical Description ==
Already fairly young, Luisa has a youthful demeanor about her, giving the air of someone just out of high school. She's not the most threatening physically, standing 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing 145 pounds. Wearing her black hair in a ponytail when not with family, lovers, or familial lovers, Luisa generally prefers to avoid the black suits that the traditional mobster wears. She doesn't have any objection to wearing a suit, but when she has a choice about color, she prefers a dark red or blue suit, almost concealing her average-sized bosom completely, although her tight backside is usually clad in tight suitpants to show off that particular area of her anatomy. To finish the outfit, she usually wears stilettos, unless she senses that there is a possibility of ambush, in which case she wears small wedges to enable more of an opportunity to move quickly. Her eyes are normally dark green, but she has been known to wear clear contacts to change their color if she's going into "enemy territory". One thing that many people alive haven't seen is a scar on her right breast, a memento of a fight gone horribly wrong in college.

== Persona ==
Luisa is generally described as a "cold dish" or "ice queen", but in truth, she's more of a social chameleon. When "on the job", she masks her personality to be whatever she feels is appropriate for the role she is playing. When she isn't needed in a specific role, she reverts to her normal personality. Unfortunately, that normal personality is next to nonexistent. She is quick to smile, quick to joke, but anyone who knows her well know that facet of her personality is just another mask. Anyone who doesn't know her well might just be fooled. She is, after all, a mistress of blending in.

== Key Skills ==
Highly capable with melee weapons
A consummate actor, able to be whoever she needs to be
 
== Advantages ==
Intelligent: Luisa didn't just make it through school on her family name and money. She is quite intelligent, able to study a plan, spot most flaws, and execute the plan perfectly. There is one facet of planning she is unable to accurately pull off (see entry 3, disadvantages), but she has the knowledge of such, and will take advice on anything involving that facet. In addition, she's known to spend days studying targets, learning their weaknesses and strengths, then planning ahead to take advantage of those weaknesses.

Unscrupulous: Luisa doesn't see things as right or wrong. If it's something that needs to be done, she does it without asking questions, never doubting herself. That lack of self-doubt, lack of conscience, can leave her having the advantage. Where one person may hesitate to hurt or kill, she has no hesitation whatsoever.

Unshakeable: Luisa is not loyal to anyone, or anything, except her family. For that reason, if she is set by her family to do something, there is nothing that can be done to dissuade her. Begging and pleading will get her targets nowhere, and on the few times someone's thought to bribe her, she's taken the bribe, double-crossed the briber, then used the bribe for her own purposes. If she is told to do something, the only thing that will dissuade her is a threat, and even that will only last until the next time she strikes.

== Disadvantages ==

Sociopath/Borderline Personality Disorder: Quite simply, Luisa is a series of masks in human form. Emotions that she expresses are almost always false. While she is good at acting, she is just that, an actor. She can mask her lack of personality from acquaintances, but anyone who knows her well, or has studied up on her, will not be fooled, taking away a prime asset simply through homework.

Criminal History: Most of the Falcones have a criminal history that is mostly or entirely spotless, through careful bribes. However, Luisa is an exception. In her time away at college, she had several transgressions, and served jail time for larceny. With that blemish on her record, if any of the Falcones drop the ball, she is always going to be one of the first to be in trouble, simply because the police have something on her that they don't have on the others: priors.

Unable to Predict Reactions: Luisa understands emotions perfectly...in an intellectual way. She knows exactly how to look, talk, and act like an emotion. Where she fails is at realizing how others will react due to their emotions. She is able to perfectly predict the most logical course of action, but when it comes time to predicting how others will react, she will almost invariably fail, as she is unable to understand illogical actions. If she can see what should be done, why can't they?

== Background ==
For a while, Luisa seemed set in life. Using her uncle Carmine Falcone's money, she went through private schools, excelling in her classes even as she was set apart from the class in ability and attitude. Enrolling in a private college outside the city at the age of 18, Luisa was ready to go.

That all changed swiftly. Without her family to keep her in mind, Luisa got into trouble. After encouraging two suitors to fight over her, Luisa miscalculated the adrenaline rush on the stronger of the suitors, turning him down when he asked her back to his dorm room. When she refused calmly, he realized that she had played him for a fool. With the knife he had used in the fight, he turned on her, managing to stab her in the chest before the other suitor and nearby students could intervene.

When questioned at the hospital, Luisa put on the act of her life, tearfully telling the story of how the suitor had just gone crazy, attacking her in the mistaken belief that she had led him on. From that moment, Luisa knew that she was born to act. Unfortunately for her, the dream of going to acting school evaporated when she stole another student's wallet, emptying the cash from it before calmly handing it back. She didn't need the money, nor did she particularly want the money. She just wanted to know how it felt to steal. She put on her act again in court, claiming that she had found the wallet and was merely returning it, but the acting that had got her through her assault case uncharged failed to do the same here. Spending 6 months in jail for petty theft, as well as facing expulsion, Luisa returned home.

Once there, her family took her in. They weren't disappointed in her actions. They were disappointed in her failure to get out of trouble. For that reason, she was carefully taught how to feel. Or at least, how to pretend to feel. In actuality, the only thing she felt was boredom, except for when she was distracted, either by her lessons or taking her teachers both in and out of family to bed. Through this, she learned that she needed occupation to keep from being bored, and that was all she needed.

Harvey Dent / Janus (Two-face) Is approved by me darlin. Though I do have to ask, cause I may be being a dweeb. Do the personalities know about each other. In the sense that "Does Harvey Dent know that he is the very beast he fights." My thoughts are No as he hasn't turned himself in but then again. >.>

This character admittedly seems to benefit from a lot of NPC power backing him both as DA and as a criminal gang leader.  You'll have to let know if it's too much and in general how you might wish for me to handle things.  Also I don't actually use the name Two-Face as I figure that's what he'd be labeled only after he's exposed and starts letting fate/the coin decide things. 

Harvey Dent/Two-Face
== Character Bio ==
== Personal Information ==
Legal Name: Harvey Dent
Alias: Janus (to be Two-Face)
Age: 34
Sexuality: Bisexual
Part of Gotham Residing In: Uptown

== Physical Description ==
Harvey Dent stands at 6’1” with a lean broad shouldered build, blue eyes, blond hair, altogether giving off an air of confidence and strength.  Janus’s appearance is unknown. 

== Persona ==
Harvey Dent is a passionate man, passionate about justice, passionate about Gotham City, passionate about the future.  As an attorney, he made a fast name for himself as hard-nosed, dedicated, and thoroughly incorruptible, racking up a stunning record of successful prosecutions in a very short amount of time.  Elected DA four years ago, his tireless efforts to clean up the city have only intensified, and Dent seems genuinely fearless and almost fanatically dedicated in his effort to wipe out organized crime and make Gotham once again safe for honest businessmen and families.     

Janus is a passionate man, passionate about power, passionate about control, passionate about his future.  The mysterious head of the Janus organization appeared seemingly out of nowhere four years ago and has been systematically absorbing the operations of Gotham’s faltering criminal enterprises ever since.  Violent, ruthless, and methodical, he acts largely by proxy, leading some to speculate there is no leader at all, merely a rotating board of directors or a front for some larger internationalist syndicate that prefers it’s presence remain unknown.  So far all investigations have led to dead ends…or dead bodies, at any rate. 

== Key Skills ==
Masterful Lawyer:  Harvey Dent may be one of the finest lawyers in the country, his ability to organize and present an airtight case almost unparalleled in Gotham’s recent history. 

Organizational Mastermind:  Harvey Dent’s DA office is a tightly run ship and he never employs a man or woman he doesn’t trust thoroughly.  Janus’s gang is a tightly run ship and he never employs a man or woman he doesn’t trust thoroughly.

== Character Bio ==
== Personal Information ==
Legal Name: Sandra Woosan
Alias: Lady Shiva
Age: 23
Sexuality: Bisexual
Part of Gotham Residing In: Downtown

== Physical Description ==
Sandra is five feet six inches tall with a lithe, toned build and youthful appearance. She has dark brown eyes and long dark brown hair that she'll sometimes dye or add highlights to. A few scars here and there, but nothing too out of the ordinary. On the day to day, her clothes lean mostly towards street chic with a few of her own eclectic touches, with sportswear for when she's training, but Sandra can also pull off something like a classier dress when she needs to. For jobs, Sandra typically wears a black leather outfit and lower face mask.

== Persona ==
Sandra is detached and aloof with a rather mercurial temperament. She's mistrustful of everyone and seems unwilling to form meaningful relationships with people other than her sister, Carolyn. That's not to say that she's antisocial, though, since she's able to speak and interact with people in a relatively normal way and even puts on a rather outgoing persona, but she's emotionally closed off. In general, wittiness, sarcasm and boastfulness are some of her trademarks.

== Key Skills ==
Body Language Analysis: Sanda has the innate gift of being able to read and understand body language to a degree far beyond even experts who've studied the art for years.

Martial Arts Grandmaster: Her prodigal ability to read body language allows her to learn physical techniques and movements extremely quickly and efficiently. Having focused her efforts almost exclusively on martial arts, Sandra has already accomplished more than any of the world's greatest and oldest senseis, mastering dozens of styles to a degree never seen before.

Assassin: From the League of Shadows, she learned how to stalk and get close enough to a target through any means necessary.

== Advantages ==
Peak Physical Condition: Through a combination of good genes and endless hours spent training, Sandra keeps her body in perfect shape and operating at maximum efficiency.

Killer Instinct: When Sandra fights, things like empathy and remorse get switched off as if somebody had flipped a switch. She can be absolutely ruthless in crushing her foes when she wants to.

Loose morals: There's no strict code of honor or morals holding her back. She'll do whatever needs to be done to achieve what she wants.

== Disadvantages ==
Solitary: Other than her sister, Sandra has no friends or allies, so there's nobody for her to rely on if she gets into trouble.

Hubris: Having soundly defeated many of the best fighters from around the globe without ever suffering a defeat since she was in her early teens, Sandra has definitely let her success get to her head. Convinced that she'd the greatest combatant alive, she'd prone to underestimating her adversaries, toying with them and taking completely unnecessary risks. Getting beaten would have a crushing impact on her ego.

== Background ==
Born into one of the poorest regions of southeast Asia, Sandra's childhood was a constant struggle for survival. Her twin sister, Carolyn, was her only friend and the only one that she could depend on after they lost their parents at the age of six. Sandra's father was shot to death while working for one of the local warlords, and her mother committed suicide only a few months later, abandoning her and Carolyn and most likely spawning the severe trust issues which would follow her throughout life.

Fighting wasn't something that she got into by choice, it just came naturally while living on the streets and having to defend herself and her sister. She just happened to pick it up extremely quickly, and soon enough it became a passion, then an obsession. Having always looked up to Sandra, Carolyn also followed in her sister's footsteps, discovering that she had the same innate talent for fighting.

After a few years, they'd earned something of a reputation and received an offer from a martial arts master in a nearby village to become his pupils. The offer included beds, regular meals and an actual roof of their own for them to sleep under, in exchange for just helping out with chores and taking their training seriously, so the girls were happy to accept, even in spite of Sandra's initial skepticism. Master Tse turned out to be a kind and wonderful man, however, eventually gaining even Sandra's trust and becoming almost like an adoptive father to the two girls. Their life turned around at that point, and the next few years were good. Not content with only teaching them martial arts, Tse gave them a more traditional education as well on top of taking them all around the region so that they may study other styles under the most proficient senseis in each.

It all seemed too perfect until one day when the girls returned home to find their master dead, having been beaten to death. Sandra learned from neighbors and villagers that a gang formed from several of master Tse's former student's that he'd disowned years ago were responsible. She vowed to avenge her master by killing every last one of them. Carolyn begged and pleaded with Sandra not to, trying to convince her that it would make her no better than them, but the rage burning in her heart could only be satiated with blood.

Knowing that Tse himself would surely never condone her actions, it was at that moment that Sandra came up with the alias of Lady Shiva, transforming herself into an avatar of destruction and death. She found the ones responsible and fulfilled her vow, even slaying some of them in public. The region had almost no law enforcement to speak of, so Sandra wasn't arrested - she was grabbed by member of the League of Shadows who'd been observing her and Carolyn for some time. Apparently, watching her murder several young men in cold blood piqued their interest even further.

The league didn't give them much of a choice. Even though it was never explicitly stated, it was easy enough for the girls to read between the lines and figure out that they'd be killed if they refused the invitation to join. Sandra took to it much better than Carolyn who was miserable. They were supposed to be bound to the League for life, but an unexpected stroke of luck came a few years later when the organization was suddenly torn apart, essentially restoring their freedom.

Rumors had it that a lone man had somehow brought the League of Shadows down singlehandedly, so Sandra's next obsession immediately became finding him. She bore no ill will towards him - quite the opposite, in fact - she simply wanted to measure herself against the best, having been unable to find a decent challenge in a long time. Her search led her halfway across the world to Gotham City, which was conveniently held countless job opportunities for somebody with Lady Shiva's skill set. Within only three months, she'd already built a reputation in the city's underground circles as an extremely deadly and efficient assassin, all the while still trying to find the mysterious warrior that she'd come searching for.

Haven't filled out her background yet because I wanted to ask (all this assuming the character gets accepted, of course), would any of the resident bad guys be interested in being the one who killed/kills Sandra's sister, Carolyn? Could either happen before the IC or during, which is why I held off on the background, since it would of course depend. Let me know here or through PM if you'd like to plot something. ^^

Unfortunately, behind the scenes things were less perfect.  For every criminal Dent put behind bars, it seemed another more ruthless one took his place.  The criminal rackets and invested corruption never seemed to disappear, only changed faces, and as Harvey’s anger and frustration mounted, he decided on a simple new tactic to try.  There was no point in pulling weeds while leaving the field open for the next infestation to take root.  But what if someone was planted there first?  Someone like himself?

What started as a game soon became an obsession, all the darkest parts of Dent’s personality, festering after years of witnessing the pointlessness of his own crusade for justice and the abiding evil of men that thwarted him at every turn, forming into their separate personality.  Nicknamed Janus, his criminal empire has begun to slowly expand, absorbing the holdings of Gotham’s traditional crime families, exhibiting a brutality, violence, and lack of respect for the underworld’s rules not witnessed in years. 

And now Dent and Janus war against each other even as they war against Gotham, one still pursuing law and order, and the other becoming increasingly enmeshed in the heady world of absolute power and criminality.  Can one man sustain such a duality forever or is there a breaking point?  Will he be one or the other…and how can he be made choose between his own warring natures?

== Character Extras ==
Face Claim: Michael Fassbender
Ons and Offs:  Negotiable with partner, however think along these terms…
Harvey Dent - consensual, switch/submissive, romantic, vanilla, etc.
Janus/Two-Face - nonconsensual, dominant, sadism, rough, torture, etc.

All you had to do was to show me some Fassbender, and it would have been approved by me.  Love the character.  3/3 Approval.

== Personal Information ==
Legal Name: Sandra Woosan
Alias: Lady Shiva
Age: 23
Sexuality: Bisexual
Part of Gotham Residing In: Downtown

== Physical Description ==
Sandra is five feet six inches tall with a lithe, toned build and youthful appearance. She has dark brown eyes and long dark brown hair that she'll sometimes dye or add highlights to. A few scars here and there, but nothing too out of the ordinary. On the day to day, her clothes lean mostly towards street chic with a few of her own eclectic touches, with sportswear for when she's training, but Sandra can also pull off something like a classier dress when she needs to. For jobs, Sandra has a black snake skin bodysuit and lower face mask.

== Persona ==
Sandra is detached and aloof with a rather mercurial temperament. She's mistrustful of everyone and seems unwilling to form meaningful relationships with people other than her sister, Carolyn. That's not to say that she's antisocial, though, since she's able to speak and interact with people in a relatively normal way and even puts on a rather outgoing persona, but she's emotionally closed off. In general, wittiness, sarcasm and boastfulness are some of her trademarks.

== Key Skills ==
Body Language Analysis: Sanda has the innate gift of being able to read and understand body language to a degree far beyond even experts who've studied the art for years.

Martial Arts Grandmaster: Her prodigal ability to read body language allows her to learn physical techniques and movements extremely quickly and efficiently. Having focused her efforts almost exclusively on martial arts, Sandra has already accomplished more than any of the world's greatest and oldest senseis, mastering dozens of styles to a degree never seen before.

Assassin: From the League of Shadows, she learned how to stalk and get close enough to a target through any means necessary.

== Advantages ==
Peak Physical Condition: Through a combination of good genes and endless hours spent training, Sandra keeps her body in perfect shape and operating at maximum efficiency.

Killer Instinct: When Sandra fights, things like empathy and remorse get switched off as if somebody had flipped a switch. She can be absolutely ruthless in crushing her foes when she wants to.

Loose morals: There's no strict code of honor or morals holding her back. She'll do whatever needs to be done to achieve what she wants.

== Disadvantages ==
Solitary: Other than her sister, Sandra has no friends or allies, so there's nobody for her to rely on if she gets into trouble.

Hubris: Having soundly defeated many of the best fighters from around the globe without ever suffering a defeat since she was in her early teens, Sandra has definitely let her success get to her head. Convinced that she'd the greatest combatant alive, she'd prone to underestimating her adversaries, toying with them and taking completely unnecessary risks. Getting beaten would have a crushing impact on her ego.

== Background ==

== Character Extras ==
Face Claim: Son Dambi
Character's Ons and Offs: Rough and passionate sex, oral sex, light to moderate bondage, having her toes sucked!
Players' Ons and Offs: Check my preferences. Almost anything goes, ask me if you're not sure about something.

Haven't filled out her background yet because I wanted to ask (all this assuming the character gets accepted, of course), would any of the resident bad guys be interested in being the one who killed/kills Sandra's sister, Carolyn? Could either happen before the IC or during, which is why I held off on the background, since it would of course depend. Let me know here or through PM if you'd like to plot something. ^^

She looks great to me so far!  I'll go ahead and add the claims to the Claims Thread.

I can have The Joker do it. Sandra could have been sent by another villain to assassinate him and she could have went in over her head, letting her undefeated ego get the best of her. As a price for her arrogance, he could have kidnapped her sister as a means to get her to confess to him who had hired her to kill him. Being The Joker whether Sandra chooses to tell or not, he'll kill Carolyn any way.

I had spoken to Gnothi about taking on the role of The Riddler, and would still like to do so if there's not another claim. For a faceclaim I'm grabbing Benedict Cumberbatch, as seen in The Fifth Estate.

I'll have the full character submission soon. Essentially I'm looking at Mr. Nygma in the Nolanverse as taking some inspiration from John Kramer, the killer in the Saw movies, though focused more on proving how smart he is and less about murdering to teach lessons in morality. He's very excited to have an intellectual equal now that The Batman has taken the stage; taunting the Gotham PD with riddles was like casting pearls before swine.

== Personal Information ==
Legal Name: Edward Nygma
Alias: The Riddler
Age: 32
Sexuality: Bisexual/Switch
Part of Gotham Residing In: Uptown

== Physical Description ==
6’1”, 175 pounds, white hair, blue eyes, lean build. In public Edward Nygma dresses very well, in tailored dark suits typically paired with a forest green tie. He has been known to wear a bowler cap and carry a walking stick. When appearing as The Riddler he wears a green domino mask, though it does little to conceal his identify from anyone who might know his real identity.

== Persona ==
Edward Nygma is an egomaniacal genius. He believes himself to be the smartest man in Gotham, and he might be correct. His intelligence is a double-edged sword; it has brought him great wealth through his criminal activities while it has robbed him of most normal human relationships. He has neither friends nor accomplices, and until the arrival of the Batman he could not even claim a worthy nemesis.
Nygma affects an English accent and upper class manners, but these are subterfuge. Nygma was born and raised in New Jersey, but seeks to disavow himself from that upbringing.
Edward Nygma is driven by a desire for recognition. He will not rest until he receives the acclaim that he feels is his due, and he believes that defeating the Batman is the surest route to this fame. Without the attention of a suitable opponent, or at least the press, Nygma is prone to spells of ennui and boredom, which often lead to self-destructive behavior.
A quirk of his personality demands that he give his rival a “fighting chance” by delivering clues as to his crimes, often in the form of puzzles. He is mentally incapable of committing a crime without giving notice beforehand, or at least leaving a clue at the scene of the crime to unravel. This compulsion may make other villains wary of working with him, despite the resources that he brings to the table.
Nygma is not quite a sociopath and has no particular desire to kill, but he does consider most people beneath him and has few compunctions about sacrificing innocents in his games.

== Key Skills ==
Super Genius – Edward Nygma possesses a first-rate intellect which he applies to full effect in his criminal schemes. His back-up plans have back-up plans, and he is always calculating the next angle. He is particularly skilled with puzzles, mind games and manipulations.

== Advantages ==
Traps and Puzzles – Nygma is capable of constructing elaborate deathtraps, puzzles, mazes and the like singlehandedly through a combination of monomaniacal effort and very little sleep. His deathtraps always feature at least a single way out, though it may be very well hidden.
Wealth – Through his previous criminal endeavors Nygma has accumulated a comfortable level of wealth, enough to carry out his schemes and maintain a posh lifestyle. He lives in a fashionable penthouse apartment in downtown Gotham.
Gadgets – Nygma has used a number of gadgets of his own devising, including tasers and other electronic devices.

== Disadvantages ==
Compulsion – Nygma is compelled to leave clues as to his criminal activities, always offering his opposition a fair chance to defeat him. Similarly he is unable to kill a captured opponent, but will instead place them in one of his beloved deathtraps. If this isn’t possible or convenient he will simply let the captive go.
Physically Average – Nygma has little training in combat with either fists or guns. He is in moderately good shape, but his only real physical skill is running away.
Doesn’t Play Well With Others – Nygma’s ego often gets in the way of his working relationships with others. He would be truly formidable if paired with a more physical villain, but such relationships tend to not last very long. He has no permanent henchmen of note, but draws from the mass of Gotham’s underclass when the need arises.

== Background ==
Edward Nygma was abused as a child by both his father and his peers at school. He was astoundingly successful at school, scoring the highest marks on his examinations. His father, believing that he must have been cheating, sought to ‘beat the truth out of him’ on a regular basis. From this treatment arose Nygma’s compulsion to truth-telling, though at this point in his life he has blocked out those memories and not drawn the connection.
As an adult Nygma struggled with boredom no matter which path he chose. He dropped out of graduate school without completing his doctorate and drifted from job to job, never finding the satisfaction that he craved. His jobs ranged from running a puzzle booth at a carnival, to professional poker player, to doing high-tech design work for Wayne Enterprises. Ultimately, though, after a few months each new field became dull to him and he moved on.
It was only after he devoted his life to crime that he became truly satisfied, and it is only since a worthy rival has appeared on the scene – The Batman – that Nygma’s periods of ennui have ceased. Pitting his mind directly against another person’s, with the highest possible stakes on the line, has given him the intellectual thrill that he had been searching for all of his life.

== Character Extras ==
Face Claim: Benedict Cumberbatch (as Julian Assage in “The Fifth Estate”)
Ons and Offs: Nygma tends to be bored by sex unless there is an element of danger or intellectual stimulation. He has tried to scratch his itch in any number of ways but has yet to find a suitable long-term partner. For what it’s worth, he has been equally distracted in the past by both men and women.

That would be perfect, actually. The Joker is exactly the type of villain that Shiva would really struggle against since he's all about not fighting straight up. I'll PM you in a second to work out the details.

Gotta say, knowing your writing from Doomtown, I'm looking forward to seeing your take on Riddler, Ebb.

Quote from: Lady Lunarius

Harvey Dent / Janus (Two-face) Is approved by me darlin. Though I do have to ask, cause I may be being a dweeb. Do the personalities know about each other. In the sense that "Does Harvey Dent know that he is the very beast he fights." My thoughts are No as he hasn't turned himself in but then again. >.>

He knows.  I touch on that a little bit in the bio.  Janus was originally intended as a preventative experiment but now he's gotten far too into the role and is genuinely at odds with himself about what he's really doing.  It is an amusing thought that he ought just to turn himself in though.  Game over for my character and I haven't even written his first post yet!  ;) 

Hopefully he'll make sense as a character once I get posting IC.   I mean as a character within a world where dressing in a rubber bat suit is an effective means of fighting crime of course.

And now my other character…

Vicki Vale
== Character Bio ==
== Personal Information ==
Legal Name: Victoria ‘Vicki’ Vale
Alias: None
Age: 29
Sexuality: Bisexual
Part of Gotham Residing In: Uptown

== Physical Description ==
5’5”, red hair, brown eyes; Vicki is a rather small lithe woman, physically unimposing in a world of thuggish gangsters and martial artists, yet is rarely overlooked in a crowd due to her forceful personality and buoyant disposition.  She is more apt to be described as pretty or cute than drop dead gorgeous with a natural smile and lively expressive eyes.  Her wardrobe is normally quite formal, pants suits and skirts and the occasional gown for uptown affairs, as befits a television personality who is rarely out of the public limelight.

== Persona ==
Hard-headed, unflappable, ambitious, and full of energy, Vicki has earned her position as GCN’s top news anchor and best known reporter in Gotham City through constant tireless effort.  Despite the serious even hard-edged tone of her articles and television exposes, in person she tends to be quite personable and outwardly friendly, bubbly almost, quick to laugh and strike up a conversation with almost anyone on nearly any topic.  This is something of an act in that Vicki has found that a soft touch works far better on most people than a hard one and taking on a flippant girlish demeanor causes some to dismiss her as an intellectual lightweight, a mere pretty face with a teleprompter, which can be useful in getting people to talk more freely than they normally would.   

== Key Skills ==

Journalist (television):  Vicki is a popular anchor for GCN and is quite comfortable speaking on camera and conducting interviews.

Journalist (writer):  Vicki also has a background in writing for the papers and currently pens a column for the Gotham Tribune as well as editorials and articles for the GCN website.

Charming Disposition:  Vicki is talented at talking to people and getting them to open up, and it is not at all opposed to turning on the charm if it means getting a better interview or story lead.

Quick hands:  While hardly a master thief, Vicki has a sharp eye and quick fingers, which can be useful for such things as picking the lock on a desk drawer with a nail file or picking up stray documents ‘accidentally’ left laying around in untended briefcases.

== Advantages ==

Famous:  Vicki Vale is one of the best known local celebrities in Gotham City, seen on the nightly news by countless citizens, a fact which can help open doors and loosen tongues.   Her high public profile also helps to insulate her from any retaliation for her articles and damning exposes, as most gang leaders realize that killing reporters is simply bad for business.  Of course with the new breed of violent theatrical criminal arising in Gotham, one never knows… 

GCN Employee:  As a newswoman Vicki is issued press passes and invitations to most of the major events and galas in Gotham City, and can get in places most civilians simply could not… 

== Disadvantages ==

GCN Employee:  …which cuts both ways, as Vicki is also responsible to her editor, who can always shut down a story or otherwise leave her grounded if her actions threaten to embarrass or upset the owners.

Non-Combatant:  Vicki has no combat skills whatsoever and is only as strong as an average woman of her size and build.  Likewise she does not possess a license to carry concealed firearms and rarely travels with a weapon of any kind, beyond the occasional can of mace or personal taser.

Dangerous Obsessions:  Vicki is obsessed with a number of stories -- the identity of Batman, the true history of the Joker, the rumors about the Janus Organization, etc -- that might be best left alone.  She is willing to take risks, even foolish ones, to uncover information and chase leads that might lead her closer to discovering the truth. 

Bad Press:  Vicki has seldom parsed words when it comes to her strong opinions of Gotham’s numerous corrupt politicians and gang families, and she’d been willing to call them out by name both in her articles and on the air.  This has not only caused tension with her bosses but has certainly resulted in more than a few powerful people who would like to see her out of a job…or worse.

== Background ==
Vicki is a native Gothamite from a middle class background who witnessed the slow dissolution of her neighborhood as she grew up due to rampant crime and attendant white collar flight to the suburbs.  With a passion for writing as well as public performance from an early age, she benefited from a number of scholarships that helped see her through college and degree in journalism.  Despite offers to work for a major nationally syndicated news network, she decided to remain true to Gotham, remaining local and focusing her energies on helping to improve the city in her own small way.

An obsessive workaholic, Vicki has few true friends outside her job colleagues and spends most of her time writing editorials, articles, and a eternally in-progress book on Gotham’s underworld she never quite finishes, hosting her morning and nightly news program, filming exposes, and tirelessly exchanging phone calls with potential leads and arranging for face to face meetings with the more promising ones.  She is particularly fascinated (and disgusted, so she maintains at least) with Gotham’s revolving door of perverse criminals and peculiar personalities, the Batman in particular, and has attempted on numerous occasions to arrange for private interviews with them under the guarantee of anonymity. 

== Character Extras ==
Face Claim: Meg Chambers Steedle
Ons and Offs:  Negotiable.  Vicki is mainly looking for romance with partners she'd view as her and social and intellectual peers.  The player is open to most things, from romantic pairings to noncon scenes, dependent on prior discussion.
