One For The Riddler? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
Answer the Question "Who should get the prize?"
|Presenter||Presenter's nature||Tokens of submission [that represent the presenter's nature]>||Virtue who is awarded the Token|
|Lion||angrie [not gentleness*]||paw||Mansuetude [Gentleness]|
|Hare||fearful [not fortitude]||ears||Fortitude*|
|Turkey||jealous* [not temperance]||coral chain||Temperance|
|Fox||[not justice]||brain (killed by chance)||Justice *|
|Peacock||[WHAT GOES HERE IS THE CLUE]||plume (brought by the Crow)||?????????|
Think of the puzzle as an elaborate comparison:
anger : gentleness :: fearfulness : fortitude :: jealousy : temperance :: sly opportunism killed by chance : justice :: ~X : X
|Too much algebra:||anger is inversely proportional to gentleness|
|anger = 1/gentleness|
|:. anger * gentleness = 1 [unity for the Lion]|
|~X * X = unity [What is "X" for the Peacock?]|
Tutor's Note: Would it help to think of a Sin [symbolized by an animal] giving a piece of itself to a Virtue that is its master? Who deserves the Peacock's plume? (And why did the Crow bring it?)
[Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Catwoman, what's your answer?????????]
