The Ventriloquist is a criminal who has formed a strange 'partnership' with the puppet Scarface.
Arnold Wesker was a timid orphan whose repressed his emotions intensely, without allowing himself to vent them healthily. His repression ultimately erupted into a brawl inside a bar, and Wesker was sent to Blackgate Prison. Within Blackgate's walls, Wesker encountered the puppet Scarface, and proceeded to murder the man who carved him.
The two are now partners in crime, with Scarface masterminding their criminal activities. While most people believe that the Ventriloquist is acting out some sort of second personality through the puppet, he sees himself as a reluctant lackey who does Scarface's bidding.
