A short, chubby man who usually wears a tuxedo and a top hat, the Penguin fancies himself a "gentleman of crime". Unlike most Batman villains, the Penguin does not theme his crimes around a psychotic obsession, but does possess a few eccentricities. He is known for his love of birds and his umbrellas, which allow him to glide through the air, double as firearms or have some other specialized function. He also typically keeps beautiful women around him; there have been suggestions in some comics that he does so to remind others of his monetary influence and to compensate for his own grotesqueness. The graphic novel Batman: Penguin Triumphant suggests that the Penguin keeps these women around because he was so often rejected by women as a teenager. He is seen as a mobster type criminal, more intelligent like The Riddler, both of whom seem to be above the usual murderous rogue gallery. To that end, the Penguin's gentleman-villain personality makes him a stark contrast or foil to the more manic and demented villains, most notably the Joker.
