History

Batman has been operating in Gotham for roughly five years as of the start of the game. He’s definitely the urban legend Batman though. He rarely deals with the police (Commissioner Gordon has had a few shadowy meetings with him over the years), and makes it a point to never leave evidence he exists. His efforts aren’t entirely successful and a few Batarangs or very blurry images of him have popped up over the years, but he’s in the same league as the Sasquatch as far as hard evidence goes. His primary target has been organized crime, but they’re starting to get desperate and turning to the likes of costumed maniacs (ie. the Joker and other members of the rogue’s gallery).

So as usual Bruce Wayne’s parents are killed in a mugging. Bruce is eight at the time. He graduates from high school, and eventually Princeton. He’s going to law school but disappears in half way through the second year leaving his inheritance, Alfred and his best friend Harvey Dent behind. He reappears seven years later and refuses to talk about what happened. Batman begins operating about a year after Bruce Wayne’s reappearance. He’s currently one of the richest men in the world, his only rivals are foreign princes, a mono-branded middle aged Briton, and Lex Luthor.

During Wayne’s seven years away Harvey Dent had become Gotham’s DA and the mob has really managed to get a strangle hold on the city. Once Wayne reappears Batman sightings start to crop up, fuzzy video show a black shape, and the occasional odd look boomerang are found. In essence the seven years away make up Batman’s training and whatever other stuff I feel like including such as Ras al’Ghul.
