Before Arkham Origins Incident
Ferris Boyle was running a secret Cryogenic Weapons program at GothCorp. He hired scientist Victor Fries to work on it. In return for Freeze's work, Ferris would give Fries resources to try to cure Fries' terminally ill wife, Nora Fries. However on the 29th of December, when Ferris learned that Victor put his wife into cryogenic stasis, he forgot about the weapons and demanded to know how Fries did it. Fries refused, so Ferris had Nora removed, and beat Victor to the ground alongside two guards. However, the ensuing brawl resulted in a cryogenic chamber exploding. Boyle was thrown clear of the blast, but Fries and a guard were affected while the other was frozen solid. Boyle fled the lab and quarantined it immediately while the other guard died from heat stroke upon exiting the super cold lab due to his mutation.

While he is on his way to be interviewed by Vicki Vale, Mr. Freeze crashes the party. His henchmen beat Ferris as Batman races to find him. As soon as Batman rescues him, Freeze kidnaps him and takes him out of the party in a helicopter. Batman eventually tracks him back to his own company, the GothCorp Building in South Gotham.
Ferris is seen being held at gunpoint by The Penguin and his men, who have betrayed Freeze and want the weapons promised by him. When Batman intervenes, Freeze uses the distraction to freeze Penguin and his men. Freeze then uses Ferris to enter the restricted area where Nora was being kept. Despite being at a disadvantage, Ferris defiantly refused to give the code to release Nora to Freeze. At that moment, Batman entered the room, trying to reason with Freeze, revealing that he knows the truth and so would the police, promising that Ferris would face justice for his crimes.
