' A b i l i t i e s• Powers
| Harley wasn't born with any real powers but she does have some. They were the result of a chemical that Poison Ivy had given her. Harley's speed, strength, and stamina are very well enhanced due to this chemical. Also, she had become immune to all toxins, poisons, and chemicals. That is one of the most important powers that she was given. Working for the Joker, she has to be around chemicals and toxins all the time, so an immunity to them was exactly what she needed.• Abilities
| As far as abilities go, she has a couple of natural talents. First of all, she is very flexible. Her flexibility and lithe body make it easier for her to pull off the crimes the Joker asks her to do. She is also a natural gymnast, another talent that can help her with her tasks. Her final 'ability' s her natural fighting ability.• Weaknesses
| Harleen is rather naďve and that naďve nature seems to get her into a whole lot of trouble. The Joker, Ivy, and her hyena’s are also a big weakness for her. Each hold their own special place in her heart and each of them mean something dear to her. If anything were to ever happen to any one of them, she would have no idea what she would. She is easily distracted, which gets in her way a lot. She could be in the middle of a sentence and suddenly ‘ooh, what’s that?’. Another thing is her ‘need’ to act dumb. She is quite smart, she just doesn’t show it. It is as if she needs to act dumb around people. Her eyes give away her emotions a lot, too, which she things is a weakness because, even though she is good at acting, when it comes to her eyes, they can blow her cover. Lastly, she doesn’t think before she acts sometimes.

| Harleen Quinzel, she is tallish, blonde, and incredibly beautiful. But that would even be enough to describe her. Her pale blonde hair isn't too thin, nor is it too thick. It is straight, mostly, though there is a slight wave that runs through it. It's pale color isn't real. She is a bottle blonde, so to speak, having used bleach and dye to make it the perfect shade that it is. She seems to manage it so well, that she can't even remember what her natural hair color was. Maybe it was a light brunette or a sun set red. Her eyes are soft and blue, almost puppy dog like in size. They are the most expressive part of her and easily betray all of her emotions, whether she wants them to or not. Her skin is pale as porcelain, with an almost permanent blush. She is lithe in figure, though she is rather strong. Her back is scarred up here and there, some from the Joker's outbursts and some from her own clumsiness. Harley has one or two scars on her leg from incidents and accidents while she was into gymnastics. She is about five foot five and weighs approximately one-hundred and twenty-seven pounds.
As Harley Quinn, she paints her face an almost ghostly white and smothers her lips with wither black or dark red lipstick. Around her eyes, she generally wears a black dynamo mask, though half the time she settles for just using a charcoal colored greasepaint and doing up the area around her eyes in a diamond. As for her costume, it is a one piece. Around her neck is a white jester-like collar with tiny white balls jangling. The suit is divided almost perfectly in half vertically and horizontally, alternating black and red. On the arms and legs of the costume is a little diamond insignia. The design is simple, just three diamonds creating a larger incomplete diamond. At the end of each sleeve is a white cuff. She wears red and black gloves and shoes, alternating opposite of the costume. As for head gear, she has a detachable jesters hood. It, too, is red and black, dividing right down the middle.
When not in her costume, she tends to wear custom made clothes in red and black, almost always having a diamond on it. She keeps her hair up in either pigtails or leaves it down completely, though she does sometimes wear it in a bun or a ponytail. She likes ostentatious clothing that shows off her curves or perfectly sculpted body. She knows that she is beautiful, and she loves showing it off. But that isn’t all she wears. She also has a lot of disguises she wears, from chauffer outfits to police uniforms. She is a master of disguise in almost every way.

| Harley is a very dependent girl. in essence, she would do almost anything that the Joker told her to do. She can't live without him and, in her mind, he can't live without her. They are two of a kind. She is so submissive, that even her best friend Ivy calls her a 'doormat'. Her submissiveness goes so far that, when she feels that she did something wrong, she willing submits to Joker's beatings, which generally leave her bruised and sometimes cut up. That's not to say that she never she never has her own little outbursts. Like the Joker, her mood can swing rather violently. If the Joker did something that she views as generally wrong or that he did something out of line to her, she lashes out on him.
Quinn is a lot more than a pretty face and a submissive girl. She has a very playful soul. As expected, she is one to joke and make things into a joke. Live with the Joker and see if that doesn't happen to you. She can be rather hyper and humorous. She is very outgoing, keeping a rather optimistic view on things. All in all, she is a rather good natured person.
On the other hand, she is a demented and sick girl. She is crazy, enough said. And it is due to the Joker. She can get defensive about those she loves, fighting for them when need be. The girl can be very violent and also cunning. Though she is naive, that doesn't necessarily mean that she is stupid. Her intelligence is rather high, and she can come up with just as elaborate schemes as her Puddin', she just acts stupid. Harley can be very manipulative, too.
There is another part to her personality that is rather strong. She is ultimately an actress, being anybody that the Joker wants her to be. And she is quite good at it. She will be anything, from a whore to a lawyer. There is almost nothing that she won't be for him. Depending on the job, she has to change the way she acts.
But that is only her as a criminal, as Harley Quinn. Harleen Quinzel, a person she now ‘plays’ sometimes in her acting, was a completely different person. Harleen was very professional, sweet, and, surprisingly enough, methodical. Oh, and a bit manipulative. She was always planning, always thinking ‘How could I get my name out there?’ or ‘How could I make people view me differently?’ She was thought of as a joke by many of her Arkham colleagues, so changing people’s view of her seemed rather important to the young psychiatrist. She was a romantic and a sweetheart, generally giving off a loving vibe around almost every one. She had been popular yet she hadn’t taken advantage of that popularity. Well, most of the time she didn’t try to take advantage of it.

| The Joker (Otherwise known as Mistah Jay and Puddn'!) - Her boss/love<3
Poison Ivy (Better known as Red!) - Best Friend Ever!• Overall History
| Harleen Quinzel was born in Gotham city to a younger couple by the names of Aileen and Harvey Quinzel. Thinking it would be creative, the two lovers took parts of their own names to come up with Harleen's. She grew up into a pretty good family. Both of her parents had worked in the medical field. Dad was a doctor while mom was a psychologist, so she had been surrounded by those kind of things practically since birth. She lived in a rather large house on the outskirts of Gotham, though it was still in the city limits. Growing up in luxury, she had had a perfect life.
When she was about seven, Harley got into gymnastics. Surprisingly, she had vast natural talent. Her body was as flexible as a cat and her balance was stupendous. The young Harleen feel in love with the gymnastics program and stayed with it for a long time. She loved it so much, that she thought that maybe, doing martial arts could help her. Martial arts, depending on the type being practiced, had a lot to do with balance,flexibility, and control. All of these things were also core elements in gymnastics. She had natural talent in the field of fighting, too. She stayed with it like she stayed with gymnastics.
For the first few years oh her schooling, she had private tutors and such to teach her the things that her parents wanted her to learn. Her mother wanted her to learn the arts and psyche while her father wanted her to learn science. Since elementary school didn't really cover these things, they thought that they were obligated to make her take private classes. Unfortunately, she also had to go to school in the morning. With permission from the principal, her parents had made it so that she only needed to stay for half of a day.
By the time she had gotten into middle school, her parents had eased up on her studies, letting her have more of a say in what she wanted. Harls was back to taking proper classes, staying though out the whole school day. On the weekends, she would have private tutoring sessions. They helped to stay on top of her classes. During Middle School, she tried out for a chance to be on the school's Gymnastics team. She made it in and was ecstatic. The young girl spent a whole lot of her time just studying hard and practicing for competitions. She almost always lead her school to victory.
Her studies and competitions left her no time to really just be a kid. Through out high school, she was on the top of her game, never looking to really fool around. It was here that she decided to follow in her mothers foot steps and become a psychiatrist. Even then, she had ambitions of fame and fortune. She wanted people to know her name, to speak of it as if she was the best. Ambitions that would later result in her demise.
A mere four years after that, she had been accepted into Gotham University on a Gymnastics Scholarship, but she still wanted a bit more. She did what she needed to do to get what she really wanted.
Harley met a boy named Guy and fell in love. Guy was a bit obsessed over his Chaos theory, talking of it constantly. She herself, wanting to be a psychiatric and psychology major, had a theory that she was willing to use to become part of that field. Her theory was that if two people's love for each other was truly strong, the one wouldn't care what the other would do. She told this to her professor, having called him to her room to talk about it. It was also a set up, recording every bit of the conversation on a tape recorder. He told her that she would need to create an experiment for it, after a bit of convincing. The professor slipped a bit of Joker Venom into Guy's special drink a bit later for motives unknown to the young Harleen. She never really knew about it. She set up her plan prior to the meeting, knowing that she would get the permission she needed.
Her experiment had ultimately lead to her boyfriends death. She didn't think that it would be that severe, though. When Guy had walked into the room, she had been crying as if she was truly upset about something. When asked what was wrong, she told him that she had run a red light. Of course, he thought that that was silly and that it was nothing to be sad about. He took a swig of his drink before walking towards her and taking a seat beside her. Another tear. She told him that that wasn't all, that she had shot a man. At that point she produced the gun. Guy's eyes it with shock and examined it before freaking out. It had been used, he noted with fear. He took the gun from her, saying that they needed to make sure that there was no evidence. It goes on for a bit, but ultimately, they go to the gym to see a homeless man, one like the one Harley said she had shot. In confusion, her boyfriend shot him and in the end shot himself.
That had taken a toll on the girl, leaving her in utter shock and despair. When she got back to her room, she saw her professor in there, dumping the rest of Guy's special drink down the sink. She glared at him, tried to sip him, but couldn't. The professor saw the bit of blood on her coat and demanded to know what happened. She in turn told him that Guy had died. He wouldn't let up, though, so she had to threaten him. She produced the recording she had made earlier that night and played it, threatening to reveal it to the dean of the school if he said a single thing.
She then turned on the T.V. to see something on the Joker. A bit laughingly, she told him how maybe the Joker had it right. And that Guy's whole chaos theory was right on boat with the Joker. This is where she must have lost a bit of her sanity. How she managed to retain the rest is a mystery.
After graduating college, she got a job at Arkham as an intern. This was where she was going to get her big break, where she was going to be able to get the Fame that she so desired. And who would bring it to her but the Caliph of Clowns himself?
It took her a while to convince the head of Arkham to actually be able to be come the Joker's psychiatrist, but she eventually did. And it was the worst thing that ever happened to her. She both blesses and curses the day. Slowly, the Merry Mad Cap twisted her naive mind and turned it on her. It took a while to do it, but she fell for her patient. It took him to escape to realize how much she wanted to be with him.
And, ultimately, she did go after him. Even going as far as to destroy everything she had, including her home and her job. She picked up a costume from a store, a red and black harlequin outfit, and dubbed a new name upon herself. Harleen Quinzel was dead, she had been a mere impostor. Yes, that was it, Harley Quinn had always been there. And she would never leave, never.
She had been in Arkham when it all started, when this merge happened. She barley remembered what happened to get her thrown into the slammer, let alone how the world had truly been like before hand. She just naturally assumed that her life had always been like this. And she also didn't care much about it, it was life, why think too deeply into it? Besides, the ony things she cared about were Ivy and Joker. And as long as they are there for her, nothing really matters to her.
