"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."

Thomas 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.

Incident ReportsEdit

Before Arkham Origins IncidentEdit

Tom Elliot and Bruce Wayne were childhood friends and, unknown to Bruce, dark reflections of each other. A childhood sociopath, Elliot actually tried to kill his parents so he could inherit their fortune. His plan failed partly due to the surgical skills of Thomas Wayne, Bruce's father, and his parents survived which made Elliot blaming Bruce and his family for his failure and sought out revenge against him.

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 to co-joined 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 finished it in Arkham City. It most likely is just a recycled prop form the previous game, considering the differences in Bruce Waynes face's between Origins and City.

Between Arkham Origins and Arkham Asylum IncidentEdit

Elliot continued to work as a successful surgeon, while also still secretly planning his revenge against Bruce Wayne. When Arkham Asylum was opened again, Thomas Elliot started working there as a doctor.

At some point, he was the one responsible for the surgery that separated Mr. Hammer and Sickle, having been hired by the Joker to perform the surgery in exchange for the finances that would fund his later surgeries.

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 the Medical Center 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.

Between Arkham City and Arkham Asylum IncidentEdit

Thomas Elliot likely continued to work as a doctor at Arkham until he transferred to Arkham City.

Arkham City IncidentEdit

Hush first appears in the Church after rescuing the Medical Staff from Harley Quinn's goons. He is
Hush Medical Center

Hush in the Medical Center, holding the mysterious box.

the man to the left of the Church on 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 was Bruce Wayne's and one inmate who was told by Hush to clean up a third victim 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) and even managed to change his prints and voice to that of Bruce's. Hush traps Batman in his surgical room and leaves Arkham City. Batman informs Oracle of this and says he will deal with track him down tomorrow.

After Arkham City IncidentEdit

It is unknown if Batman ever caught Hush, but it is unlikely that he did because Hush made it sound like he was leaving Gotham after he escaped from Arkham City.

Arkham Knight IncidentEdit

It is likely that he will appear in Arkham Knight as a villain given he managed to escape Batman in Arkham City and Batman mentioning he will deal with him later. In the demo, there is a billboard advertising "Elliot Memorial Hospital". This is likely a reference to his parents, who were well respected doctors who died in his youth.
