Batanes, Teófilo. Teófilo Batanes was created by the Mexican author Rafael Bernal and appeared in three short stories in various magazines in 1945 and 1946; the stories were collected in Tres Novelas Policiacas (1945).

Teófilo Batanes is a Mexican policeman modeled on Father Brown. Detective Batanes is wise, perhaps even infallible, and deals out justice according to divine law, rather than human law.
