Arnold Rundle was an auto parts distributor. He was also friends Falcone. When Falcone learned of the strange parts that Rundle had ordered he knew they must have been for the Batmobile which had recently been wrecked in a car chase with the Penguin. Falcone then brought Rundle to Penguin and Rundle told this to Penguin. Penguin was pleased and gave Rundle a check for $400,000. However, Rundle would not get a chance to use it. Penguin put Rundle in a small boat and sent it through the sewers. The ride ended with the boat and Rundle going down a whirlpool and Rundle drownd.
