Jonathan Crane was abused by both peers and family alike as a child due to his unusually slender appearance. With this making him grow resentful to all around him, he soon developed an obsession with fear and phobias, getting revenge on everyone who ridiculed him through lethal frights. As an adult, Jonathan becomes a psychologist for Arkham Asylum, where he performs fear-inducing experiments onto the inmates, and he eventually combines a scarecrow suit based off of an incident in his childhood with a special chemical gas he developed to become the criminal Scarecrow.
