    I think my favorite thing with Hatter is whenever he’s in Arkham and has no access to hats he makes one out of newspaper

    Patient #48140

    Name: Nygma, Edward*
    Alias: The Riddler

    *Therapist Note: We do have confirmation that this is in fact her real name. When enquired about, she stated that— and I quote— “Daddy dearest wanted a son.”

    Physical Notes

    The patient stands an even 5’9 at an estimated 120lb with her lean figure and small/lacking bust.* She bears light amounts of freckles over pale skin, otherwise lacking any sort of natural ‘blemishes’. While she is not nearly as marked as other patients, she does bear the occasional scar which is speculated to be from a combination of correctly placed batarangs and improper or late treatment to the cuts.

    *Therapist Note: For a fair amount of time Ms.Nygma was thought to be a rather short and extremely effeminate male. Her initial visit to our facility has since proven otherwise, but a surprising portion of Gotham’s civilians, corrupt, and even a few within the Asylum still believe otherwise.

    Out of our current patients, she has proven to be one of those who is easier to handle in a physical manner should the need arise**. For the most part she doesn’t pose any great threat in terms of inflicting physical harm as long as she is without her cane, other gadgets, or the basic things which any human can cause trouble with. It should be noted she can be quite creative though, and as such some caution should still be kept in mind when dealing with her hands-on.

    **Therapist Note: Please keep in mind that unnecessary man-handling has made her malicious in the past. It may not happen outright, but she will bide her time and go to great lengths for revenge. One recorded instance of this shows that Ms.Nygma went to great lengths to blow off the arm of a former guard who she felt had mistreated her.

    This does not mean that she can be peacefully left to her own devices. While it is generally slow to happen, Ms.Nygma has something of a reputation of escaping, generally getting places she shouldn’t, and fueling the flames of those around her. Like with any patient escape is frown upon, but her exits can just as likely be without a trace as they can be to the scale of releasing every other inmate as well (an event that has occurred before). It is recommended that unless within her own cell, you should be aware of where she is at all times. Please keep in mind that Ms.Nygma is the only inmate to ever escape Belle Reve Penitentiary, and the perceptions of other patients should not shape your own.

    It should also be noted, this skill also translates to having things she should not. It’s recommended to give her a double and triple check for contraband upon arrival, and to check her for such if suspicion arises.

    Psychological Notes

    It should be made clear, that entertaining her games is the last thing one should do. Guards in the past have gone to her for teachings and favors, therapists began being the ones to open up to her, and she’s coerced other inmates into assisting her via common goal or other rewards*. She will play you like a fiddle with little to no remorse, and happily go on her merry way to once again continue the game that currently suits her fancy**. Her intelligence surpasses even our inmates with IQ’s breaching genius level, and has been estimated to have contrived plans which have stopped The Flash and nearly killed Batman. Her theatrics and zealous nature make her entertaining, but do not let it make you soft to her games.

    *Therapist Note: This isn’t to suggest she is always the highest power though, as other inmates just as equally drag her into their own schemes. It also isn’t to say that she can’t be outsmarted or outdone, just that generally others come to her for her prowess.

    **Therapist Note: While she seems to mostly lack empathy, she does show attachment to certain things.

    Ms.Nygma seems to suffer a case of OCD in reference to her obsession with and compulsion to leave riddles, puzzles, or other clues. It’s assumed that this was caused by a traumatic event or series of events, games being a means of escape but then turned obsessive as a means of overcoming or ignoring certain anxieties and insecurities. Coupled with intrusive thoughts, the obsession turned malicious only to be spurred on by B.M. who’s been deemed a ‘playmate’ to her crimes. As such, it’s likely that over time with the right care the habit can be curbed and she could return to a normal life; one must keep in mind though that she has still committed the crimes regardless of the reason.

    She’s quite a narcissistic individual, however it is noted that she does in very rare occasions show adoration towards other she deems ‘as close to in her league as it gets’, implying that she still does think herself superior to some degree.

    With the right occurrence though, her arguably manic behavior can take an turn into a depressive state. In such occasions she has shown to be self aware, narcissism subsiding and acknowledging that she’s mentally ill— or at least that there is something not quite right*. Often times though she’ll also become quite reserved and pull into herself, self-care becoming quite poor and her being moody in softer ways verses her usual sharp intensity. It doesn’t seem to happen entirely often, but has been noted here as a potential time for breakthrough’s and to keep better watch to make sure she remains healthy.

    *Therapist Note: While it is discouraged with most patient’s anyways, referring to her as any means of ‘crazy’ or ‘stupid’ leads to highly volatile behavior.

    Please keep in mind what you say to her, as she absorbs everything and is an easy source of gossip and information to others deemed ‘villainous’.

    In terms of sexuality she seems to go any way and as such identifies as bisexual, though she does seem to have some preference for males. She can be flirty in some cases as part of her theatrics or simply entertainment, but her reception of compliments differs from affirming acceptance to actually getting flustered at advancements.

    Patient History

    Through comparing notes with B.M. and her own cryptic words, we have been lead to believe that Ms.Nygma had come from an abusive household. Our information suggests that her father was verbally and likely physically abusive, though her mother’s roll remains unknown with nothing to go off of. It seems that she has repressed these memories though, as any enquiry of her before the age of 18 is met with redirection, rejection, or brief sentences. It’s believed that her love of puzzles was a way to get away from such aggressions, developing into an obsessive delusion and the basis of her OCD. The full truth and admittance from her may evoke pity from therapists, but we do remind you that she is a well renowned criminal who’s even gone at it with other heroes besides B.M and hacking agencies such as ARGUS.

    Ms.Nygma is best known for her hacking and theft as that is what most other villains seek her out for. It always comes with her own form of elaborate planning, but she her most significant crimes are those committed on her own or with her as the driving force rather than just another piece. (Some of these instances which are mentioned throughout the file).

    Some villains do view her as ‘the bottom of the totem pole’, but we warn you to not let their own opinions shape your own. Underestimating Ms.Nygma has proven crippling at best, and will always lead to someone getting hurt even if months later.

    Treatment Suggestions

    Treatment suggested is relatively simple in terms of steps, however it will take a steady person to do so. We aim to curb how she handles her OCD in reference to intrusive thoughts and underlying anxieties through other means of coping aside from violent theatrical games*. From there treatment should be adjusted accordingly, depending on if her actions continue on the pretense of boredom or superiority. Our hope is that she’ll at some point be deemed stable enough to find her way back into society, as it is a feat she’s accomplished once before.

    *Therapist Note: Take into account that while we do aim to quell her obsession, leaving her without some sort of mental stimulation often leaves her bored. Unfortunately in her case, that then leads to being more destructive than she already has the potential for. Because of this we will leave it up to her therapist’ discretion, however it is advised that she be given a marker or book for entertainment when within her own cell.

    Oh! Awesomeness, two in a row!

    So we can probably start kicking around some ideas while we wait for our other friends to get on their “files”!

    Also, I did want to throw this out there, since we have a couple of “inmates” here with OCD- I actually in real life have OCD, and have been undergoing therapy for it for about fourteen years. If anybody wants to add some verisimilitude to their characters therapy, do not hesitate to ask me! I’m *not* offended by incorrect fictional portrayals of OCD but I’m always happy to help folks get it more accurate.

    Okay so!

    Planning and stuff.

    I basically see two ways we can do this- and it’s probably for the best trust we mix these two ideas

    One is we “sandbox” it. Arkham is a contained little world, and we can have our characters interact with each other and let relationships and stories evolve naturally.

    The other is someone (I volunteer myself as tribute) develops an overarching storyline that will affect all of us and we’ll be come together in the story to deal with this plot as it develops. This would have the “game master” (again, I’ll do it) picking up NPC duty and incorporating plot points.

    And I think we should probably mix the ideas- a free form sandbox with an overarching plot.

    What do you guys think?

    I like the idea of mixing. A general plot outline provides a squidgy bit of structure which I think will come in handy.

    Even though I did try and leave it a tad loose in case of improper portrayals, I will absolutely take any tips you wanna give.

    As for structure, I agree with mixing the two.

    I agree with mixing the two as well. Maybe something along the lines of the inmates working to escape would be an easy overarching plotline for the RP.

    I was thinking a mystery. Somebody up to something BAAAD in Arkham.

    Oooh....

    Idea.

    Okay I’ll hush for now.

    Alright also- and this is getting the cart ahead of the horse- but if this goes for a while, we can switch “game masters” and have different stories.

    Cool. Good. Yes.

    Alright so... as this is BD and adult content is possible, does anyone have any hardcore “NO’s” that we don’t want to see written out in case two of the maniacs slink off behind the stairs?

    “Follow the rules of the site and just don’t be gross” will be baselines of course.

    You and your secrets, buddy. The good doctor should always know what’s going on in her asylum.

    I’m assuming don’t be gross includes toilet stuff?

    Not to kinkshame anyone, but if it goes in a toilet it should probably be left out of sex play.

    ^ That all works for me. Otherwise can’t think of anything else off the top of my head at the moment.

    I would maybe add if anyone has a particularly extreme fetish, maybe run it by the group before writing it? Just for common courtesy.
