The Scarecrow is a sick psychologist who uses a variety of drugs and psychological tactics to use the fears and phobias of his adversaries. He does not commit his crimes for wealth, but rather as a form of "research" to further study the effects of fear on humans, making the innocent citizens of Gotham his unwilling guinea pigs.
" You married your wife because you were scared of dying alone. You had children because you're scared you won't leave behind anything important. You go to doctors because you're scared of dying... need I go on? "
"This message is for the mayor. You'll soon see what Gotham City will be like without fear. And it won't be pretty. Fear is the glue that holds society together. It's what makes people suppress their worst impulses. Fear is power. And today it will also be quite expensive... if you want the antidote. "
Jervis grinned from ear to ear, slate blue eyes lighting up maliciously from under the brim of his top Hat, "--Oh ho! Quite the same Doctor, your studies into human fear, absolutely tickles me, so very fascinating..." the thin madman declared, slender gloved fingers stroking the pocketed nodes hidden away in his coat... "--Curious we have not worked together to further our studies? Control and Fear, one can go a long way with that," he chimed happily.
Tipping his head some to the side, Edward smiled, lips turning up, emerald eyes glittering under his black domino mask, "--What can I say? I like playing games...sometimes sadly its hard to find others who can match my intellect...Batman is one of them...and Oh how he loathes my Riddles..." he joked, spinning his cane gently about to plant delicately under his weight, while he flicked that stony gaze towards his masked friend; Crane, one of the few Gotham city criminals he could actually tolerate. "--and how about you? Any good studies into the frailty of the human mind lately?"
‘Oh I don’t doubt for a second the method of Fear, worked well for a lot of dictators, Drug ring Leaders, and Mafioso types, seems to do well when you do it, and when I’ve tried my hand at it. Wave your gun around wildly, and people tend to listen a lot better then when you just ask them nicely, the humor is mainly for my own enjoyment.’ He uttered with a slight twisted red lipped smile.
((Well hello there! Thanks for accepting the friend request. Just so you know, I'm quite addicted to rp. So legitimately, just give the word and I will be happy to send a starter your way (unless you prefer to start, in which case feel free to send me one any time). I'm also happy to discuss potential plot before hand, if that's how you prefer to do things. And finally, should you at any point decide this character doesn't work or gets a bit boring, I only have seven other civilians to chose from each with their own potential for plot and genre that I would be happy to pull out on request. I would PM you a list should you request it with short summaries of each character, and you could pick out which strikes the most interest or inspires plot. Communication is key.
