Before his parents’ death, Bao was an ordinary teenager, he liked his video games and didn’t bother with the housework.His family owned a Vietnamese pho shop that also served as a home in Gotham’s Narrow One day, Harley Quinn decided it Time was to introduce The Joker to the cultural delicacy of Pho, a meal she’d enjoyed many times as a student, The Clown Prince of Crime, Harley, and her crew ate for free because the family was so intimidated by their arrival

Despite Bao’s father’s refusal to be compensated for the meal, The Joker left a tip, not the traditional money tip He left with verbal advice: “Don’t breathe.” The villain cackled as the room filled with Joker Gas and Bao’s horrified expressions, slowly turning into a sick, psychotic smile. Bao’s parents were dead.
