Edward Nigma, the Riddler, is a man who delights in the setting up of a crime, and in forewarning the police (and Batman) of his upcoming capers. These warnings are always sent in the form of a riddle. The Riddler discovered how fun and challenging puzzers were when he was a young boy (he cheated on a puzzle in school to win a prize), and he gradually turned to crime as he got older. The Riddler often has two female assistants that help him, Quiz and Query.
