redford hobbes was born on april fools day of all days. in fact, it could be said that his life started out as somewhat of a joke. for one, he was an accident & one his parents weren't too thrilled about, and secondly his upbringing was tragically laughable. his father was an alcoholic that when he'd come home from work, drunk as a skunk, would yell at his son and wife until the both were left in tears. and if he couldn't manage to yell because he was slurring his words, he'd beat on the two of them, leaving them black and blue and huddled in a corner.

redford grew to despise his father for the abuse & resentful to is mother because she never protected him. he considered himself independent of them from a very young age, often taking care of himself whether it was stealing from local convenience stores or from his neighbors when they turned their back. he knew that he could only take care of himself and that's exactly what he did.

redford's outlook on life hadn't changed much as he grew older. he took care of himself and didn't care much for those around him. that was until he met his future wife, barbara. the two fell madly into a whirlwind romance and it was the first time in his life that redford felt as if he could finally stop watching his back. he had someone to depend on. someone to love. his life felt complete. and with the addition of their child, redford vowed to himself that he would be the complete opposite of his parents.

unfortunately, nothing gold can stay, and redford fell into the mix with the mob. it first started out harmless; he'd run packages to the docks or wherever they'd need, but eventually it escalated. the pay was good, far better than his day job, but as his wife's pregnancy neared it's end, redford wanted out to earn straight. however, his bosses didn't agree. they sent out a couple of henchmen to send a message via intimidation, but their plans took a turn and their intimidation turned into a double manslaughter of his wife and unborn child.

needless to say, redford experienced a psychotic break over the death of the only two people he's ever loved and was admitted to a psychiatric hospital outside of boston. it was there that a cocktail of medication, group & private therapy, and constant supervision eventually helped him to move past the unfortunate death and he was able to continue on with his life. or whatever he could call it now.

continuing with the cocktail of medication and private therapy sessions every week, redford had managed to keep himself on the verge of another breakdown, but had learned well enough to fake it so he wouldn't be sent back. though some days he felt he had nothing to live for, there were moments of lucidity where he'd tell himself that suicide wasn't what his wife would want for him.

it's been 10 years since his time in his little padded oasis and he's been managing the seesaw that is his emotional and mental stability. he had gone back to work as a mechanic, keeping to himself as he continues to go through the motions of his daily life.

  • he is particularly over-qualified for his job(s), but has found it difficult to find a job because many potential employers are worried of him becoming a liability.
  • still continues to odd jobs for the mob, the money is good, even if it is blood money.
  • has gotten into a handful of fights and though he's not exactly a mma fighter by any standards, he's scrappy and has been able to hold his own.
  • quietly grieves his wife and unborn child and the life they could've had.
  • despite the cocktail of medication that he's on, he still has his bad days and it's best to leave him be. for your own safety. but on his good days, he's quiet the charmer/comedian.
  • ...more to come.
  • i started a joke.
    The Joker is a homicidal, psychopathic, ruthless, sadistic, maniacal, lunatic, manipulative, intelligent and diabolical master criminal who wants nothing but chaos and anarchy wherever he goes, as well as reveling in the suffering of others. In most speaking roles, the Joker is often given a high-pitched, comical, bouncy, silly, and over-the-top voice that occasionally stoops down to a slight growl, in accordance to his clown-like appearance and maniacal personality.

    His malevolent, sadistic sense of humor and psychopathic tendency of murdering whoever he wants to depicts him as Batman's greatest foe and not even Poison Ivy or even Two-Face could possibly beat the Joker. He is a genius but uses his intelligence for evil schemes in Gotham. However, he does not have any plan to kill Batman because he is "just so much fun" because he always plays his little "games". The Joker also likes to corrupt his enemies in various media. He has some on an off alliances and on and off rivalries with Batman's villains, such as Two-Face, Penguin, Catwoman etc.

    The Joker actually wants to corrupt Batman by causing greater tragedies in his life so that he can get Batman to kill him or make Batman like him. Even though the Dark Knight has shown to be incorruptible and sticks to his moral code of not murdering his enemies and having them receive justice instead, the Joker never gives because the more tragedies he causes, the more Batman will get more angrier at the Joker. The Joker has a vicious, sadistic and ruthless mind of physically and mentally torturing his enemies or puppets. The perfect example is none other than Harley Quinn, who has an undying crush on the Crown Prince of Crime as he just uses her for his own diabolical schemes and he always slaps her and belittles her.

    However, later on, he has shown a bit of fondness in Harley Quinn.

    This personality has the enemies of Batman and Superman become the Joker's frenemies instead as he is an incredibly Magnificent Bastard.

    The Joker also takes a lot of pride in his crimes, often freely admitting and taking credit for the crimes he commits. In fact, he has done it so many times that usually a surefire sign that the Joker is actually innocent of a crime is when the Clown Prince of Crime actually denies any involvement in it.
