The Long Halloween
By Jeph Loeb
The Roman- Carmine Falcone is a main villain who is being hunted by the police and batman while also being attacked by the serial killer Holiday. He is the leader of a massive crime organization and practically rules Gotham city.
Holiday- A mysterious serial killer who is targeting Carmine Falcone's family and only strikes on holidays, hence the name Holiday. Vigilante?
Harvey Dent- Dent is a DA on a mission to take down Falcone and works with Batman to try and do so.
Jim Gordon- Captain Gordon wishes to stop crime and is also good friends with the Batman.
Catwoman- Catwoman is after something involving Falcone, but what? She crosses Bats' path quite often in the story and often helps. She is a thief a little too obsessed with cats to be precise on her character.
Joker- Batman's arch nemesis, a deranged psychopath dressed like the picture on the playing card, is after Holiday as well, but why?
-Bruce Wayne to Carmine Falcone (Loeb 1)
This line sets up the book for quite a bit of it's plot. It shows that Bruce Wayne, Batman, wishes to save Gotham from evil.
