Never compromise. Not even in the face of Armageddon. That's always been the difference between us, Dan.

Dan Dreiberg: Watchmen are over. What do you suggest we do about it?
Rorschach: Retribution.

Dan Dreiberg: I heard he'd been working for the government. Maybe it was a political killing.
Rorschach: Maybe someone's picking off costumed heroes.

Laurie Juspeczyk: Jon thinks that there's gonna be a nuclear war.
Rorschach: What if that's why someone wants us out of the way? So we can't do anything to stop it?

Watchmen. One of us died tonight. Somebody knows why. Somebody knows.

An attack on one is an attack on all of us.

The world will look up and shout "Save us!"... And I'll whisper "No."

No. Not even in the face of Armageddon. Never compromise.

Rorschach Picture

Rorschach is one of the Watchmen. He's an extreme vigilante whose questionable morality was created by an abusive upbringing and investigating a horrific child murder.

He was born as Walter Kovacs. Rorschach's mother was a prostitute who resented his interference in her business and abused him viciously. At age 10, the character was attacked by two bullies.... but he fought back, partially blinding one with the bully's own lit cigarette. Rorschach later became a ward of the state, sent to the Lillian Charlton Home for Problem Children.
