Digambara Monk. The Digambara Monk was created by the Indian author Vatuvur Ke Turaicami Aiyankar (The Stranger) and appeared in Kampakonam Vakkil Allatu Tikampara Camiyar (circa 1940).

The Digambara Monk is a sanyasi (holy hermit) who has sworn a great and mighty oath to fight crime. To do so he uses many different disguises and tracks the criminals across India’s geography and society without regard to caste or social class. He is not skilled in the ways of detection, but is brave, intelligent, and has the assurance which devout faith brings.
