-- Ra's al Ghul src

Ra's al Ghul is a master criminal, enemy of Batman, father to Talia and head of the powerful criminal group The Society of Shadows. Ra's al Ghul is said to be over 600 years old due to his constant exposure to the chemichals of the Lazarus Pit. His ultimate goal is to cleanse the earth from the ever growing human population by decreasing its numbers and ruling in a world shaped by him in which humans serve nature and not the other way around. Ra's has a faithful servant named Ubu, who believes nobody must precede his master.

However, his dream of cleansing the earth became difficult with time and he started looking for an heir that continues his legacy. After searching for the right person, Ra's found Batman and decided to test the man. Ra's kidnapped Robin and faked his own daughter's kidnapping in order to get Batman's "help" finding them. Batman's abilites allowed them to find Robin but Batman already deduced that Ra's was behind it all. Ra's offered Batman to be his heir, for his worthiness and because his daughter, Talia, was in love with him. Batman refuses and Ra's decides that Batman is his enemy and starts a war against the "Detective". Batman investigated Ra's activities and discovered that he was planning to denotate Lazarus Pits around the world, killing billions of people. Batman managed to stop the man's plans and he believed that Ra's ended up dead as a result.[1]
