He tries in this way to make them understand the importance of savoring life, himself being condemned by cancer of the frontal lobe. His victims then have the choice of passing the test he imposes on them, or of dying. Its name comes from the fact that it takes a piece of skin in the shape of a puzzle piece from the bodies of those who have not passed their test. 

He is one of the most famous and popular villains in horror cinema and a legendary character often referenced in popular culture.
