I say leave it as is. As long as its popular and keeps getting updated, people aren't gonna care whether the OP got deleted.

Harley and Batgirl waking up takes place Saturday morning. Riddler and Merrymaker, Red Hood, all of that, takes place in the immediate aftermath of the Harbor battle, say around 11pm Friday night- 1am early Saturday morning.

I took the liberty and assumed that Merrymaker had his plague mask in his pocket because the pointy thing wouldn't have fitted under the stealth mask. Claws in his pocket too I guess.

Villain APP:
Name/Alias: The Crow / Rashida Al-Ansari
Age: 23
Gender: Female
Appearance: Image
Personality: Rashida Al-Ansari is cold, calculating, and nearly silent as the Crow. She speaks only in short sentences and only when the situation requires it. She is a loner that does not ally herself with those she considers her lessers. For her, these include those she feels are unstable, immature, or unprofessional. She is also secretive, keeping her motivations and identity secret. Primarily a cat-burglar, she believes that others who have come before were mostly unprofessional.
Faction: Independent
Affiliation: None, considers herself the successor and superior to Catwoman, something that as far as she knows Catwoman is of not unaware.
Race: Human
Backstory: Rashida Al-Ansari is a second-generation American whose father was a Moroccan immigrant and whose mother died shortly after she was born. Her existence was largely miserable. Her father was abusive in her early years and when the abuse stopped he was dying of cancer and she was not yet a teenager. When he died she had no family to speak of in the country and found herself in a foster home. The foster home was better but cramped and it was there that she began to feel as if she didn't have anything that was hers. It was always shared between her and her foster-siblings or it was her foster-parents'. This changed when she was on a trip to a mall and saw a beautiful ring for sale. Being relatively quick she managed to snatch it from a display and removed the various alarms that would prevent her from walking out in a dressing room. Finally, something was hers. Even though this initial shoplifting was successful, it took her a while to become good at shoplifting and there were several run-ins with the law as a juvenile, though none of them led to prosecution.

The Crow's emergence was relatively recent. Rashida's meager job, working at a small pawn shop, does occasionally offer some rather interesting finds. Gotham is somewhat known for it's interesting and seedy underbelly. It was through this, Rashida assumes that is from this that her grappling hook was acquired. It was certainly from a rather shifty individual that claimed he had found it. She accepted it eagerly as a plan came together. At this point in her life, she had become proficient in thievery and was becoming increasingly aware that she needed an alter-ego. Piecing together some of the more outlandish clothes that had come into her possession she created a costume with a mask and black feathers. She would become the Crow by night and become Gotham's most successful thief.
Powers/Weapons/Tech:
- Judo: Rashida took judo classes and became quite competent in judo while a foster child.
- Grappling Hook: Rashida built her costume around the grappling hook, quite a sophisticated piece of tech actually "found" in South Gotham. She has used it to
- 9mm Semiautomatic Hand Gun: Rashida is a decent shot.
- Military Knife
- Various Thieves Tools
Weaknesses: Rashida's overconfidence is often her downfall. She is very competent at judo and thievery and a good shot, but her ability to fight with a knife is quite limited. Despite that, she never misses the chance to fight with it. Her fierce independence further weakens her as she is often unable to look over her perceived superiority to take advantage of partnerships that would be of benefit to her,
Skills: Expert Thief - Able to bypass most security systems, open locks, and break codes.

Extra Information
Day Job: Pawn Shop Owner, the rather squalid and unoriginally named "Pawn Shop".
Living place: A rather cramped apartment in a decaying tenement widely considered one of the worse buildings in South Point.

Likes/Dislikes: Likes: Diamonds, Jewellery, Black, Wine
Dislikes: Men (though not openly), Religion, "Freaks" and "Fools"
Theme Song: Not very fitting but it's late.

Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.18 (previously -4.72 )

Can Mank and I just claim Alfred as a shared minor character considering we both have to use him. And he could also have an interesting arc of his own.

Nope. If you want to play him, go for it! Just remember we have a Babs Gordon/Batgirl and she's 25 years old. According to her app, her mother died of cancer when she was like eight or nine and she had to raise her kid brother, Jimmy, pretty much by herself because her dad was working all the time as a cop.

Complete a character app for him and I'll look it over! :)
