Who is Tommy Elliot? There are many ways to answer that, Doctor. Tommy Elliot is a cipher. A ruined shell, a lost child, a distorted shadow of another man... a whisper barely heard amid the shrieks and laughter echoing through the halls of Arkham. The House of Hush.
Penniless, broken in body and spirit, I have, at last, come here, to the bridge. The site where my abusive father met his well-deserved end in a car crash I engineered. In the dark water I see the images of my parents, both slain by my hands, both mocking me for the monstrosity I've become. And in my delusion, I am a frightened little boy again, desperate for their approval. Willing to die for it.
