The Golden Boy of Gotham. Some people say this as a compliment, and others say it as an insult. Either way, Harvey Dent is a polarizing figure. A homegrown Gotham boy who attended Harvard Law, then turned down a ton of opportunities to be a county prosecutor in his hometown, Harvey helped put a lot of bad people away. He was notoriously unafraid to go after corrupt politicians, cops and even the most connected criminals and supervillains. He really shook the city up, and pushed for a cleaner, safer Gotham. Recently, backed by some influential supporters, Harvey made a bid for D.A. Much to everyone's shock, he unseated the well connected, corrupt D.A., Loeb. Now he is the youngest D.A. in Gotham history, and looking to make some changes.

It's hard to keep Harvey down. If you push him he tends to push back. If tied up and tortured, he might eventually break, but he could hold his cool for much, much, much longer then most normal people. He is able to resist temptation and keep going.

The world CAN be changed. It can be made better. Harvey believes this, and he believes it SO fully that people tend to believe in him. His attitude is infectious. He isn't stupid or naive, but he believes this can be made better. We simply have to MAKE them better.

Harvey had a terrible childhood, and those issues still rest in the back of his mind. During very stressful situations he might have issues with anger, or lack of sleep. He is a workaholic, and he can go far too long without eating or sleeping, and those things build up.

Harvey is a pretty skilled boxer. He has won some amateur boxing championships, and he practices a lot to keep himself in good shape.

He's no expert sniper, but he can fire a handgun under duress. He has been in life and death situations in the past, and he tends to be able to hit his target when in them.

Dent knows Gotham. He knows its history, and its people. He knows local celebrities and clubs and bars. He knows what neighborhoods house which gangs, and which gangs have which politicians in their pockets. Proving this knowledge is something else, though. (And there are always those who surprise him...)

Harvey knows the law. He knows the ins and outs of various statutes and past cases, as well as how to try cases, find evidence and properly document it, etc. He was a very successful city prosecutor before he became DA, and he has a Masters in Criminal Justice from Harvard Law. He could have gone anywhere with that degree, but he came home.

District Attorney:
Harvey is the youngest DA in Gotham history. Generally, the duties of a district attorney are to manage the prosecutor's office, investigate alleged crimes in cooperation with law enforcement, and file criminal charges or bringing evidence before the Grand Jury. He is the highest individual when it comes to these sorts of things in the city, with only the State Attorney General being above him. He can make calls to help, and if he really wants to he can push cases, or shut down cases, and do all sorts of things to make people's lives easy, or hell. It comes with a ton of responsibility, of course. And a target.

He owns a brownstone in an up and coming neighborhood in Gotham. When he bought it just out of college it was a pretty rundown neighborhood. Over the years, though, the area has become more gentrified. There is a new indie movie theater, some nice cafes and restaurants, etc. The hipsters and indie folks flock to it...and he rather enjoys it all, in fact.

He owns two registered revolvers, and a registered shotgun. One revolver is stashed under the desk in his office, while the other revolver and the shotgun are back at his home.

He has pissed off a lot of people in his career. He spent time trying to root out corruption in Gotham, and that tends to piss people off. Numerous politicians, cops and criminals (Though, to be fair the previous ones tend to be BE criminals) want him dead or ruined.

Harvey is one hundred percent human. He feels stress like a human, take damage like a human, and dies like a human. In a world of supermen this is a weakness.

Public Figure:
Harvey is a well-known face in Gotham City, and possibly among people in other cities who pay attention to things like the politics of law/crime in a place like Gotham. He is the Golden Boy of Gotham, and a lot of people love him, and a lot of people hate him. Regardless, it is hard for him to go under the radar in a lot of places in Gotham. His face was all over bus sides, billboards, etc during his election, afterall. He won't be mobbed in the street like some celebrity, but he's recognizable.

Harvey takes medication to handle a mental illness he has struggled with since he was a child. He began suffering mental illness due to the trauma of a very, very abusive father. His condition is not public knowledge, or even known by those close to him. While he gets his medication and the condition does not worsen (Perhaps due to some severe trauma) it is completely invisible.
