Peter Pauling was a former commissioner of police for Gotham City. Pauling served as a crony of mob boss Rupert Thorne. Thorne used his City Hall connections to have Commissioner James Gordon removed from office and replaced him with Pauling for a brief period of time. Later, a criminal scientist named Professor Hugo Strange drove Thorne to the brink of insanity through the use of psychotropic drugs. Thorne developed severe paranoia and believed that Pauling was conspiring with Mayor Hamilton Hill to have him killed. To satisfy this growing fear, Thorne murdered Pauling.
