Janaki. Janaki was created by Indian author Kamala Sathianadhan and appeared in Detective Janaki (1944).

Janaki is a beautiful, spunky young Indian woman whose spirit is too strong to be shackled by an arranged marriage (though her husband does care for her, and she for him) or by family (her step-mother is quite horrid). She wants what she wants, and some of what she wants is to solve crimes and help people.
