So is this meant to be Scarecrow in Gotham’s new trailer? The mask would certainly imply that he is, but the character seems to be devoutly religious and other than the Fear of Faith arc Crane has always held a disdain for religion, mostly due to his abuse at the hands of his zealot great-grandmother. 

As much as I would love to see Crane in Gotham (if this is indeed him), I’m curious as to how giving him a religious edge would affect his characterization.

The taxonomy of this bird has been a mystery for centuries and it was not until the early 2000s that scientists began to hypothesize that it may belong in its own Family and diverged from typical plovers nearly 100 million years ago.

❝ I had to be a grown-up when I should have been a little boy, and now that I’m a grown-up my little-boyness has exploded out of me. I’ve lived my life backwards.

Beautiful in life, even more so in death.

Took this picture last summer(2010) in Colorado. Right outside of a friends Cabin.
