Dr. Mahreen Zaheer was a doctor at Arkham Asylum.

Originally from Islamabad, Mahreen was a doctor and was certified in London, but when she arrived in Gotham her medical degree didn't transfer. Despite her training, she chose to take a job as an orderly at Arkham Asylum. She worked alongside Eric Border, and was once attacked by Joker's Daughter.

Mahreen was later kidnapped by a group of five inmates, who turned on her when she insisted the Joker was not the savior they believed he was. Barricading herself in a room, she encountered Border, who revealed his true identity as the Joker. The Joker gave her a revolver with six bullets, right before the inmates burst through the door. Firing all six bullets, it is unknown if Mahreen was killed by the inmates or shot herself.
