History Edit

Before the Show Edit

Oswald Cobblepot was born as a famous child, being the son of fashion models, David and Patricia Cobblepot. However, the couple learned their child was disfigured and could not let him disgrace the beautiful family name, so they dropped him into the sewer and lied to the media, saying he was kidnapped from their home and never found. Unbeknownst to the couple, Oswald had survived and was raised by a young group of outcasts who were sent into the sewer. Oswald left the pack when he was 16 and began making a living by robbing several jewelry stores. Once the Joker made his appearance in Gotham, Oswald and Edward Nygma joined the Joker, Oswald being given the name Penguin due to his deformities.
