Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel, also known as Harley Quinn, is a former psychiatrist and lover of the Joker. She is also a long-time nemesis of Batman and even helped The Joker in the murder of the latter's protegee Robin / Jason Todd.
Harleen Quinzel originally worked as a psychologist at Arkham Asylum, and when the Joker was imprisoned there by Batman, she took a particular interest in him, regularly visiting and speaking with him. Harleen was gradually psychologically sabotaged and manipulated by the psychopath, eventually falling in love with him, and the Joker got Harleen to do him a favor, which was giving him a machine gun. Shortly thereafter, Joker's goons broke into Arkham Asylum, and successfully broke their boss out. Before leaving however, Joker sadistically subjected Harleen to shock therapy, which almost completely destroyed her mind.
Taken to ACE Chemicals, she was told by the Joker to say an oath, swearing that she would die and live for him. She responded in the affirmative, and allowed herself to fall into the vat of chemicals, tainting her skin white and further degrading her mind. From that point on, Joker named her "Harley Quinn" (giving her a red-and-black Harlequin costume), and duo of psychopathic lovers go on numerous crime sprees in Gotham City together, becoming the criminal king and queen of the city.
