Although I am still but a child in the world of evil, just beginning my journey through crime and villainy, I continue to grow in strength and force. Soon all of Gotham shall be mine.
On this day on which mere mortals amuse themselves by making trivial little resolutions and promising in vain to improve themselves, I have a vow of my own:
I hereby devote every fiber of my being to the destruction of reason, the annhiliation of safety, and the eternal reign of despair. I shall spread fear and hatred throughout the land.
Gotham is a city on the brink.
I shall provide the push that sends it over the edge.
