Walter J. Kovac or famously known as "Rorschach", was born in New York City in 1940.Not having a father from an early age, to support Walter, his mother worked as a prostitute. Blaming him for her problems, she repeatedly beat him and wished she had an abortion.It wasn't until 1951, when two bullies pushed Walter to his breaking point, where Rorschach was born. He bites off one the bullies ear, and attacks the other one. From a young age, because of his abuse, Rorschach struggles in social situations. Also, from a young age he was known as an "underdog" for being small and squirmy. After the incident, Rorschach was sent to Lillian Charlton Home for Problem Children until 1956, until he started working at a garment factory. He showed strong academic and physical progress at the school, but still was haunted by his past. The main question behind this character, is what drives him to be the anti-hero he is and why are his methods so flawed?
