One fateful night, my parents gave their lives for me. They became my heroes, their legacy, untouchable, until I learned the truth. My father, Thomas Wayne, was a criminal. He ruled over Gotham from the shadows, and everything I thought I knew about myself… change forever. The Children of Arkham exposed the truth about my father to Gotham. Their attack turned friends into enemies, and threw the city into chaos. I was commited to Arkham Asylum, where I escaped with the help of a mental patient named John Doe. After a bloody battle, I put an end to it all in the catacombs beneath the city. The Penguin, Two-Face, and Lady Arkham were the first real challenge I faced as the Batman, but they would not be the last.
~ Bruce Wayne.
Bruce Wayne, also known as Batman, is the titular protagonist of Telltale Games' Batman series.
He is the playable character, and his tech color is chosen by the player to be either blue, yellow, red, or purple. Throughout his life, he has been fighting against crime after the deaths of his parents by Joe Chill and after he was adopted by Alfred Pennyworth. Depending on the player's choices, Batman can choose to be a generous, kind, caring, and merciful individual at best, or a vengeful, arrogant, hatred, and merciless person at worst who believes in an "ends justify the means" philosophy.
Bruce Wayne was born on February 19th, 1987 to Thomas and Martha Wayne, and was the heir of a family fortune that Thomas acquired by destroying the lives of other families of Gotham. In his youth, Bruce befriended Oswald Cobblepot, and Alfred noted that the two were "thick as thieves". One night while leaving the Monarch Theatre, Bruce's parents were murdered by Joe Chill on the orders of Mayor Hill.
Growing up under the care of his butler Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce decided to declare vengeance by protecting Gotham from criminals. Bruce left Gotham and traveled across the globe, receiving numerous training in martial arts, investigations, and criminology. He returned to Gotham by his early-to-mid twenties under the title of "Batman", having taken the animal due to his fear of bats as child. Bruce would become allies with the Gotham City Police Department commissioner Jim Gordon, and later befriended district attorney Harvey Dent.
