Voiced by Richard Moll (BTAS, TNBA, TBATB), James Remar (TBATB)
 

Harvey Dent was Gotham's star district attorney until an accident brought out his dark side and turned him into the criminal Two-Face.

His world revolves around chance, more importantly the flip of his coin. There always seems to be a piece of Harvey which is strong enough to linger within the mind of Two Face when he is committing his ungodly acts. However, Two Face is the dominant personality.

The Ventriloquist/Scarface
Arnold Wesker
Voiced by George Dzundza (BTAS, TNBA), Dan Castellaneta (TB)
 

Arnold Wesker looks like a quiet, peaceful, mild mannered older man, but in the company of his other personality, Scarface, he is a vicious ruthless criminal. As a schizophrenic, Scarface is a dummy who is made to look like a mafia type boss with a scar on his right cheek. ScarFace is the dominant personality, with the Ventriloquist only able to emerge briefly, until Scarface demeans his alter ego. Scarface is often accompanied by his two main "hired hands", Mugsy and Rhino. Scarface has nothing but contempt for the Ventriloquist, always referring to him as "Dummy."
