Veronica "Ronnie" Vreeland was a member of the Gotham City elite. A wealthy socialite, and a charming woman, Veronica Vreeland has known Bruce Wayne for a long time, and she adores him. She has attempted to sway him many times, in between her marriages! Although she doesn't realize it, Bruce Wayne is a loyal friend to Veronica and will always look out for her.
The granddaughter of a famous hunter and the daughter of an army man, Veronica Vreeland led a wealthy life off of her trust fund. She lived in a mansion on the outskirts of Gotham City, from where she was involved in numerous charities and fundraisers. In these circles, she became a good friend to Bruce Wayne and often pursued him as a potential romantic partner, although it never went beyond simply being his friend.
She has also gotten herself into a lot of trouble with some of Gotham's most colorful criminals. She pretended to show interest in the Penguin in order to use him to gain publicity for her party, but as events progressed she began to have doubts about her plan. The Mad Hatter used one of her trips to Middle-America to brainwash her and the rest of the Gotham elite, and Harley Quinn kidnapped her when she was released from Arkham.
Marilu Henner has described her character as follows: "Veronica's the type of person who would reject Bruce for being too boring, then sit around wondering why Batman hasn't called her."
