Carly, Jim. Jim Carly was created by the pseudonymous Indonesian author “Purna Malavaji” and appeared in the story serial “Purna Malavaji alias Jim Carly, Pentjoeri Ksatria” (1938?-1940?).

Jim Carly is a Lupin. The mysterious Anglo-Indian Jim Carly is active, usually in Calcutta and occasionally as far east as Shanghai, punishing the wicked (usually British), stealing from the wealthy (usually the British and those Indians who collaborate with them), and giving their money to the deserving poor. “Carly” is actually the Indian prince Purna Malavaji, deposed by the British and working toward revenge.
