Henry Aquista was a crime lord with strong ties in the Gotham Organized Crime. He was the father of Darla Aquista, who was killed during a gang shootout at her school.[1] After this, Henry gave the order to eliminate every other gang member and their families as a payback for his loss.[2]

Later, Gotham went into a massive blackout and Henry took the corpse of his daughter to his private chambers. He didn't want to bury her and turn her into "worm food". He called the mercenary Zeiss and told him to eliminate all the crime lords in Gotham, beginning with Orpheus.[3]

After the final stand between Batman and Black Mask, Aquista led his gang to Black Mask and pledged loyalty to him along with all the other gangs in Gotham.[4]
