- "Would you believe good, old-fashioned revenge? To be honest, I don't care if you do. Wayne will suffer and you will not stop me."
Tommy Elliot and Bruce Wayne were childhood friends and, unknown to Bruce, dark reflections of each other. A childhood sociopath, Elliot tried to kill his parents so he could inherit their fortune. When his plan failed partly due to the surgical skills of Thomas Wayne, Bruce's father, Elliot blamed Bruce.
An incredibly skilled surgeon as an adult, Elliot planned an elaborate revenge scheme on the Batman. He disguised himself as the villain known as Hush, his face covered in bandages, and plotted to finally take his revenge against Wayne.
Before Arkham Origins IncidentEdit
Arkham Origins IncidentEdit
Although he does not appear in Origins, he is mentioned by Alfred. When listening to one of Alfred's wisdom conversations, one conversation, he tells Bruce that Thomas called to celebrate a surgery he just completed (possibly referencing the separation of the Abramovici Twins). In Bane's lair, there is a newspaper on the floor with the topic "The Identity Theft Strikes Again". This means Elliot has already started constructing the mask of Bruce Wayne's face and finally finshed it in Arkham City.
Between Arkham Origins and Arkham Asylum IncidentEdit
Road to Arkham IncidentEdit
When the Asylum was opened again Thomas Elliot started working there as a doctor.
Arkham Asylum IncidentEdit
Even though you can't meet Hush in the asylum itself, you can find his name on a timetable for the Surgery room in Medical on the second floor in the same room as you rescue Dr. Adrian Chen. It is easiest to grapple up as soon as the fight that ensues as you attempt to rescue Chen starts. Turn around and scan the timetable to solve the riddle and unlock his biography.
After Arkham Asylum IncidentEdit
Thomas Elliot likely continued to work as a doctor at Arkham until he transferred to Arkham City.
Before Arkham City IncidentEdit
Arkham City IncidentEdit
Hush first appears in the the Church after rescuing the Medical Staff from Harley Quinn's goons. He is the man to the left of the Church in a gurney, with bandages on his face and clutching a box. The doctor there says that he was a doctor recently transferred there who stashed medical supplies and then cut his own face off. The doctor further states that he found Hush laughing in a corner, and had him wrapped up and sedated. He also said that they couldn't pry loose the box he was holding.
Hush next appears in the side mission "Identity Theft." Batman tracks six murders back to Elliot after scanning three corpses, interrogating one political prisoner who says that Elliot looked like Bruce Wayne, uploading the fingerprints that it was Bruce Wayne's and one inmate who was told by Hush to clean up with bleach telling Batman Hush's location. When Batman enters Hush's hideout, he learns that Elliot has created a face that is exactly like Bruce Wayne's face (minus the surgery scars), traps Batman in his surgical room and leaves Arkham City. Batman informs Oracle of this and says he will deal with him later.
After Arkham City IncidentEdit
Arkham Knight IncidentEdit
It is strongly suspected that he will appear in Arkham Knight as a villain. In the demo, there is a billboard advertising "Elliot Memorial Hospital". This is a possible hint that Thomas is dead.
