Emile Dorian was a rogue geneticist.


Emile Dorian was a former geneticist in Gotham City where he was Kirk Langstrom's partner. Upon creating the T-99 mutagen, Dorian turned to unethical activiites. He was quickly found out and was forced to leave Gotham. He decided to move out to an uninhabited island, where he continued his experiments. He had managed to create Garth, a genetically-altered gorilla and later Tygrus, a half-man, half-tiger hybrid, with cunning and strength augmented attributes, whom he described as the pinnacle of his art.

Dorian decided that he should find, or create a partner for Tygrus. He chose Selina Kyle as Tygrus' new mate and sent Garth to kidnap her. Garth took her to the island and Dorian subjected her to splicing. As a result, Catwoman was transformed into a half-lady, half-cat creature. However, Batman investigated Catwoman's disappearance and tracked her to Dorian's island. Upon arriving, Batman witnessed Catwoman's new form and attempted to save her, but Dorian sent Tygrus to kill him. Tygrus's intelligence allowed him to understand the truth of the situationa and he turned against his master. When the laboratory exploded, Tygrus saved Dorian and delivered him to Batman and Catwoman. Dorian was presumably later handed over to the authorities.
