Stephanie Brown was born the daughter of the Cluemaster , one of Gotham City 's third-rate villains. Stephanie's father spent most of his childhood in prison or away from the family, and though he claimed to be "rehabilitated upon his return to Gotham", Stephanie was furious to discover that he was actually returning to crime without his need to leave clues behind.

She knew where her father was hiding out, found out his plans, and left clues so that the police and Batman could stop him.
