Chief Asa Nichols

Nichols is a conservative force that has served Arkham since 1907. He is now 61 years old and has been talking about retirement. The reasons seems to be that he feels somewhat out of date. He does no longer fully understand the movers and shakers in the underworld of Arkham. He has delegated much of the crime department to Harden and Harrigan and does seldom involve himself personally in crime investigations.
