"Baron" Wacklaw Josek was a two-bit conman. Josek was a smooth-talker from Eastern Europe with prior convictions for fraud. He called himself the "Baron" but there was little noble about him. Fooled by his appearance, relief aid organizations sucha as the Foreign-Aid Society would invite him to hold talks over dinner. He was a known associate of Josiah Wormwood. After a short interrogation Josek told Batman everything he knew, which wasn't much. Batman then told Josek to leave Gotham which he did. This allowed Batman to impersonate Josek and learn where Wormwood had hidden some stolen bearer bonds.
