The Schemer was a criminal mastermind who gathered a large gang of thugs and planned a colossal heist in order to steal a large shipment of gold from the First National Bank in Gotham City. His plan consisted of making his henchmen pose as blind men across Gotham City and make the public eye that Batman had been killed by his men.
Batman was eventually drawn to investigate the case and the Schemer was forced to attack and kidnap Robin in order to stall the Dark Knight from stopping his plan. However, Batman managed to locate Schemer's hideout and with Alfred's help, he managed to save Robin and capture Schemer. Once the criminal was taken into prison, the various member of his gang followed suit.
