{ Characters: Professor Ratigan }

Professor RatiganProfessor Ratigan--a scheming, coniving and rather evil rat--is London's most feared criminal mastermind. A large, somewhat overpowering figure, Professor Ratigan refers to himself as a mouse rather than a rat, ridding anyone who calls him otherwise. For years, he manages to evade police and capture by his arch-enemy, Basil of Baker Street. In what would prove his downfall, he makes a diabolical scheme to overtake the thrown of England but is tracked down by Basil. The chase eventually ends atop Big Ben where, as he attempts to murder Basil, Professor Ratigan falls to his death.

A dominating presence, Professor Ratigan can be either charming or frightening, depending upon your personal taste. He enjoys his beloved cat, Felicia, and being gloated upon by his many thugs who carry out his crimes.
