Find Me On:
My name is Walter Kovacs, im a vigilante who lives by his own rules. The son of an abusive mother, Sylvia Joanna Kovacs, who had lived most her life as a prostitute, grew up not knowing his father but fantasized that he was U.S. President Truman.
In 1951,I was removed from his mother’s care and put into a home for problem children after i attacked two older boys who were bullying me, partially blinding one with a lit cigarette. During my stay in the children’s home, i was found to be a bright child who excelled in literature, boxing and gymnastics. Once i moved out of foster care, Kovacs got a job in the garment district where i stumbled upon a specialized synthetic fabric, which later transformed into the inkblot mask i wear for my crime-fighting alter ego.
As the vigilante crime fighter Rorschach, I am a notorious nemesis of New York criminals and police officers. He is ruthless, extremely strong, a master at picking locks and known to use improvised weapons such as a hairspray can and a lighter. At each crime scene Rorschach leaves a piece of paper with an inkblot that when folded in half becomes a smeared pattern
After my investigation into the death of a costumed hero, i am framed for murder, ap-prehended by police and imprisoned. I escape with the help of Nite Owl II and Silk Spectre II, and together they investigate his theory that someone is out to kill and dis-credit all past and present superheroes.In other words how do i save the world before promm!!!
