Yes. Thank you, Dana. You know it shouldn't take a businessperson to step in here, but I have made a career out of concealing blemishes, and quite frankly, the makeover this city needs comes from an ugly I've never seen before. So yes, I am here to speak on behalf of the people without a platform like the hundreds who work for me who say they're scared to death, Dana. They are scared to death of the criminal element lurking behind masks, but I'm not here to beg for help today. I'm here to offer it. To the law enforcement in charge of protecting us, what can we do? How can we help you? Because enough is enough.
~ Roman Sionis giving a speech to the public.
No. It's a symbol of liberation from people like you, people who think they'll never be held accountable as long as they pretend that what they do is justice.
~ Black Mask about his mask.

Roman Sionis, also known by his alias Black Mask, is one of the two main antagonists (alongside Safiyah Sohail) of the second season of the TV series Batwoman.

He is the pragmatic and charismatic CEO of Janus Cosmetics and the sadistic leader of the False Face Society, who is notable for wearing a black mask, who puts a dangerous drug known as Snakebite on the streets of Gotham City. By day, Roman is a who plays the “white knight” against Gotham’s corrupt systems. As Black Mask, he is an evil mastermind with a deep hatred of The Crows and masked vigilantes, he is willing to tear down Gotham to enact his revenge.

He is portrayed by Peter Outerbridge.

History

Early life

In the past, Roman Sionis became the CEO of Janus Cosmetics and had a daughter who apparently captured by Crows Security and killed by the original Batwoman. At some point, Roman Sionis founded and lead the False Face Society gang in Gotham City in a misguided attempt to hurt Gotham's legal system.

Batwoman

At some point, his gang succeeds in kidnapping Kate Kane, unaware that she is Batwoman, he tells her that her family declared her dead, but they would make them believe in life after death.

The gang drew the attention of Crows Security by selling the drug Snakebite in Gotham City; which led the Crows to discover that Black mask leads the gang.

Black Mask later ordered the False Face Society to kill Commissioner Jack Forbes in order to keep distributing Snakebite and because the police department has worked with masked vigilantes, which Black Mask despises. The next morning, Black Mask as Roman Sionis gave an interview to Dana Dewitt regarding the situation saying how he wants to falsely help this city.

Later, after hearing that Jordan Moore witnessed the assassination of Forbes, Black Mask ordered the gang to kill Jordan, but she was saved by Batwoman. He later ordered Angelique Martin to be captured, after learning that she wanted to leave the gang. In his hideout, he tortured and killed a member of the False Face Society and told Angelique that if she tried to leave the gang, she and her girlfriend, Ryan Wilder, would die too.

After Batwoman showed up to save Angelique, she was knocked out and tied up. On the other side, Black Mask told a member in a Guy Fawkes mask that he failed the kill the witness and that he was out, before killing him using a buzzsaw. Batwoman was horrified by what he did, and he said it was just an "H.R. matter" and sarcastically asked if she was a "OSHA" and she replied that she was after Angelique. Black Mask then says he understands what she thinks about him, but he was only trying to get rid of the Crows and masked vigilantes, after they arrested and killed his daughter. He said he didn't need her help and told his henchman to start the buzzsaw, but then Sophie Moore came in and he ran away while firing his gun at the agent.

Black Mask and Enigma then appear in Kate's cell. Enigma expressed sympathy for Kate's condition as Black Mask disregarded her. Before Black Mask left, he asked Enigma to alter Kate's memory and appearance, and make her forget who she was.
