Dixon. Dixon was created by Edgar Wallace (Ace High, Viola Beech, Brigand, Wireless Bryce, Felix Carfew, Elegant Edward, Inspector Elk, Educated Evans, Four Square Jane, Dixon Hawke, Heine, Felix Jenks, Just Men, King Kong (I), Larry Loman, Superintendent Minter, Policy Sleuth, Oliver Rater, John G.

Dixon is an English private detective. He often takes sensitive cases for the aristocracy, and is seen as having a fair amount of discretion. He is on the hard-boiled side and has a somewhat grim and cynical outlook. He is friends with several members of Scotland Yard and has unofficially worked with them for several years.
