The Ventriloquist and Scarface are enemies of Batman. The Ventriloquist is a villain who has no weapons, but owns a puppet called "Scarface" who does arm himself with a gun.
Arnold Wesker was a mild-mannered, timid and meek ventriloquist with a love for noir mobster movies. Arnold was orphaned at a young age and constantly bullied prompting the man to hide away all of his anger and negative emotions. As an adult this caused Arnold to suffer a psychotic breakdown and attack a man in a bar causing him to be sent away to Blackgate Prison. In prison, Arnold's cellmate was a wood-carver by hobby who had carved a ventriloquist dummy out of the wood taken from the prison's defunct gallows tree. Arnold stole the dummy from his cellmate and developed a personality for it, calling it "Scarface" after the famous gangster Al Capone, using the puppet to vent out all of his hidden dark emotions and coming to develop a multiple personality disorder. Upon breaking out of prison, the two became known as the Ventriloquist and Scarface with Scarface serving as an evil mastermind and gangster while the Ventriloquist, believing Scarface to be a real person, was merely an unwilling accomplice.
