Arkham\Blackgate Isle Staff

Face: Hugo Strange
Mandate: Build a new prison to contain both Blackgate and Arkham inmates. (Public)

Public Knowledge
It’s the stated goal of the Arkham Asylum staff to rehabilitate the worst of Gotham City’s dangerously insane. Those it can’t help, they contain. It’s also earned a reputation as an institution that will see to any unusual need of Gotham’s criminals. Special installations were built to contain men and women with unique requirements for either survival or containment. Arkham has had a long history of working alongside Gotham State (when it was still open) and Blackgate though that relationship has become strained as the current Warden has been less inclined to release patients to Blackgate. Warden Strange has begun a kind of half-way house program in the Narrows to reintroduce Arkham’s former patients into the world.
