Well, there's now a name
for Harley fans - "Harleyites". Coined by me, it describes the most intense,
devoted and passionate Harley Fans out there. But who started it all? At
the core of it, there are three main people, the Brains, Soul and Heart
behind who Harley is,what she stands for, and what she will be.If you're
a Harleyites, there's only gunna be three possible names that spring to
your mind.If not, well, this is just an introduction to these folks, to
set you on your way to becoming a true Harleyite!!!
The original inspriation
behind Harley. The very gal pal of Paul Dini, his best friend since college
days. Arleen is the model from everything about Harley - from her voice,
to her looks, to her personality. Arleen IS Harley!! She embodies Harley's
essence, and brings her to life thru her voice talents. Anyone who's ever
seen Arleen perform knows she has Harley's bubbly personality and irrepresable
The man who truly started
it all!!!! Paul Dini is the creator behind Harley, who first wrote her
as simply a one-shot character, before growing to love her to pieces, and
making her a character in her own right her for us Harleyites!!!Basing
her on his best friend, Arleen Sorkin, noone writes a Harley that is quite
so Harley as Paul Dini.
This is the guy who gave
Harley the look we all know and adore!!!! Bruce Timm first conceived Harley's
character design, a design which is so *perfectly* Harley, it hasn't even
gone the remodel most of the characters did for the new series. Like Dini's
writings, noone draws quite such a quintessential Harley as Bruce Timm.
His Harley is eternally sassy, sexy, fun, spirited, cute and loveable.
Bruce will forever more be the fella who truly gives Harley her life-spirit
thru his artworks, and the flair which says "Harley Quinn"!!
Well there it is Harleyites!!
The three god-like Harleyites who made Harley what we love about her today!!!
And that's all ya really need to know!!
