Jason Todd was a street orphan until he met the Dark Knight after stealing the tires from the Batmobile. Jason was trained by Batman and later became the second Robin, but he was beaten and tortured by the Joker, who sent the Batman a video of the event and lied by telling Batman that Jason was dead. Batman fell into a deep depression over Jason's "death". Years later, Jason returned seeking revenge against the Batman, utilizing advanced technology and resources he acquired by unknown means, he was able to develop high-tech equipment & train a battalion of of soldiers well. He even designed a high-tech bat-suit with capabilities that are more advanced than Batman's technology as well as utilizes lethal gadgetry and weapons during combat situations. He created the identity of Arkham Knight, until his redemption and forgiveness at the hands of Batman. After finally aiding the Batman to battle Scarecrow, he takes up the title of The Red Hood, a name that was used by the Joker prior to his transformation.

Incident Reports

Before Arkham Asylum Incident

Jason Todd was a street orphan who was taken in by Batman, and became the second Robin. Shortly after, Jason was kidnapped and brutally beaten by the Joker. He was held in an abandoned Arkham wing at the Asylum for over a year, beaten and  manipulated by the Joker into hating Batman. He eventually escaped and began plotting his revenge on his former mentor, taking on the name of The Arkham Knight, due to the fact of where he was held and the effect the name has on Batman and Gotham City.

Arkham Asylum Incident

Jason was referenced by the Joker just before the fight with Bane, and stated that Batman could use a new sidekick, and hinted that he had already "murdered" Jason.

Arkham City Incident

Jason was referenced in the Joker's Carnival Challange Map when the player played as Robin (Tim Drake). Joker sometimes said: "Didn't I killed you already?" and made a reference that he had "killed" Jason.

Arkham Knight Incident

It was revealed at the end of the game that Jason Todd was also the Arkham Knight, taking up the role to get revenge on Batman for not rescuing him from the Joker. Jason Todd was not actually murdered by the Joker, but was tortured by the Joker for a year until he cracked and returned to Gotham City years later with the plan to kill Batman. However, Batman finally managed to get through to Jason and became the The Red Hood and assisted Batman in taking down Scarecrow, vowing to do what Batman could not and protect Gotham in his place.

After Arkham Knight Incident

Jason decided to bring down Roman Sionis, aka Black Mask's organization. Jason tracked down some of Black Mask's men and killed all but one of them and interrogated him for the location of Black Mask's weapons. The hench-man told him they were stored at the docks before Jason executed him. The Red Hood then went to the docks and killed all of the thugs except for one who revealed to him the location of Black Mask. The Red Hood went to Black Mask's hideout where he took out his men and defeated Black Mask. As Sionis begged for his life, The Red Hood kicked him out a window, which killed him, and ended his hold on Gotham City. 

Personality

Jason Todd was the second incarnation as Robin, he cared for his mentor Batman and wanted to live up to his potential, stopping crime and protecting Gotham City. After being tortured by Joker, his mental state started deteriorating, hoping that his partner would come in to rescue him. In time (due to The Joker show him a photo Batman with a new Robin); he lost hope and started to hate his mentor for leaving him to die. After escaping (or in comics resurrecting); he became vengeful and wanted to kill Batman. As shown in the Arkham Knight's persona, he was ruthless, calculating and appear to be somewhat apathetic to the "weak" that Batman protects. Todd also is blinded by rage for Batman leaving him to die, as shown when he cost Scarecrow's toxin machine to be dismantled by the Batman's Batmobile. Once snapped out, he showed some emotion and helped his former mentor to stop Scarecrow. In the The Red Hood Story Pack DLC, he is still murderous and cold-blooded, as shown when he killed Black Mask who begged for mercy, but ultimately driven by justice.

  • Jason's dual action pistols can be converted into a sniper rifle.
