"It's not a job if you love what you do."
—Eduardo Flamingo to The Lady[src]

Eduardo Flamingo is a psychopathic cannibal and hitman in Gotham City.


Flamingo was a hitman working for The Lady, and one of her best assassins. The Lady eventually fired him because of his cannibalistic and psychopathic personality.[1]

Eduardo was eating a man's ear, but he was called by the Lady and she told him that he was with her again, and assigned him to kill James Gordon. Flamingo then shot the man in the head, killing him. Flamingo arrived at the target's location and proved his skill by killing two entire police units by himself. Gordon appeared and the two had a violent fight. Flamingo started with the upper hand but he was soon subdued by Gordon who punched him repeatedly after he was in the ground, Gordon grabbed his pistol and aimed it at Flamingo's bleeding mouth. Gordon managed to control himself and decided to spare Flamingo's life, despite the hitman egging him on to commit murder.[1]

Officer Katherine Parks then brought Eduardo to the Gotham City Police Department lockup, but he dropped to the ground and proceeded to bite her in the neck. Parks died soon after, and Flamingo was subdued by the nearby officers. Alvarez later called Gordon to let him know what happened.[1]


"Why just smell the fear on your victim, when you can taste it? Right?"
