Savant appears in 54 issues.
Brian Kenneth Durlin was the spoilt heir of a rich and respectable family, who rarely finishes anything he starts and owning to a chemical imbalance in his brain, that affects his memory. Although highly intelligent, due to his inability to distinguish the passage of time obvious from an early age, he dropped out of med school, law school, and several martial arts schools. After that, his father sent him to Athens for several years, but he had to leave when his blackmail activities drew police interest, at which point his father left him broke and disinherited. Moving to Gotham, he became a costumed vigilante, taking the name Savant, but was ordered to stop by Batman, due to his focus on beating criminals over saving innocent. He instead turned his skills to blackmail full time, amassing a sizable fortune and database in this pursuit. Desiring revenge on Batman, Savant set a trap for Oracle. Capturing Black Canary, he tortured her and threatened to kill her unless Oracle provided him with Batman’s real name. Oracle recruited Huntress to hunt them down, and she and the escaped Black Canary, nursing broken legs, managed to beat Savant and Creote. Revealed as Arkham inmate in Birds of Prey #60.
The Birds of Prey are a group of female heroes headed by Barbara Gordon. Though the team's roster tends to rotate, the mainstays of the group have been Oracle/Batgirl, Black Canary, and Huntress.
A constantly changing group composed primarily of incarcerated super-villains who perform black ops missions with a low chance of survival in exchange for the possibility of a shortened sentence. This "squad" was organized and put together by Amanda Waller.
