Evil character (Posted on 2006-09-11) Difficulty: 2 of 5
You are given the word EVIL and the numbers 2, 3, 4, and 5. You are to take each number and change a letter in EVIL for the one that number of places forward or backward in the alphabet: for example, you can replace E with the letter 2 places later (G) or earlier (C) in the alphabet, or 3 places later or earlier, or 4 places later or earlier, etc. Use each number once and each letter once. You can "wrap around" the alphabet: consider the letter after Z to be A, and the letter before A to be Z. When done correctly, you will find the name of a Shakespearean character who was, appropriately enough, very evil. Who is this character?

Solution Is it Shakespeare? | Comment 2 of 4 |

E ( 5) + 4 =           ( 9) I
V (22) + 5 = 27 - 26 = ( 1) A
I ( 9) - 2 =           ( 7) G
L (12) + 3 =           (15) O

The EVIL character is IAGO.
