History

Tobias Whale is an African American albino, who worked his way up from the rackets to head the Metropolis branch of The 100. When school teacher Jefferson Pierce spoke out against the 100's drug trafficking, Whale decided to make an example of one of his students. Seeking to avenge his murdered pupil, Pierce became a vigilante, calling himself "Black Lightning."

Black Lightning was successful enough to send Tobias to jail. When Whale broke out of prison some months later he teamed up with Syonide II to distribute a new highly addictive drug. The drug's formula was supposed to be in the possession of a woman named Violet Harper, and Tobias sent Syonide to retrieve it from her. When he was unable to gain any information or find any trace of the formula, Syonide simply killed her.

Violet Harper later came back to life when an Aurakle possessed her lifeless body, and joined the Outsiders, becoming the superheroine "Halo." Once Tobias learned of Harper's resurrection, he assumed that she must have memorized the formula. But she had complete amnesia and didn't remember any of her previous life, so, frustrated, Syonide killed both of her parents.

Whale eventually had to leave Metropolis because of increasing pressures from Intergang. In the pages of Gotham Underground, Whale moves to Gotham City and tries to take over the Gotham crime map; which is still heavily in confusion from the power vacuum after the death of Black Mask and the deportations in Salvation Run.
