Stories of Gotham City
Bathes is a French pharmaceutical consortium with its headquarters located in Paris.
In 1977 Bathes bought a share of the Arkham Asylum owned by its board of administration. The consortium planned to test new drugs and treatments for the American market. In the mid-1980s there was a massive power struggle between the shareholders and the profits plundered. Barthes lost its interest in the asylum and retreated from the board.
In 1992 the consortium sold their share to Jeremiah Arkham for a fraction of their initial investment.
