STORY:

Once employed as an actual rat catcher in Gotham, Otis Flannegan soon started using his natural gift--an affinity with and ability to control rats--to stage a variety of crimes. Eventually his control over the vermin grew until he threatened Gotham City with a veritable army of rodents. Incarcerated many times at Blackgate, he can cause as much damage within prison as without, using his loyal pets to relay messages and transport materials inside the maze of ventilation ducts that wind throughout the giant prison.

  • Overvalues rodent life, especially in comparison to human life.
