The "Player" is a major character in the Carmen Sandiego television shows. In both incarnations, he is a teenage gamer appearing in an isolated bedroom (presumably his) to provide intel for the main characters. The first incarnation served as a person from the "real world" to the show's setting, which was depicted as a game, where he communicated with Carmen via computer to bookend each episode, implying the show's events were just a game on his computer. The 2019 reboot expands on this role as a computer hacker who assists Carmen in her missions.
