Kio-Hako. Kio-Hako was created by the Russian author V.A. Gladkov and appeared in Kio-Khako, Iaponskii Korol’ Syshchikov #1-8 (1918).

Kio-Hako is a Great Detective. He is a very Europeanized Japanese detective: he smokes a pipe, has a Watson, is multi-lingual, and is famous enough to be summoned to Russia, South Africa, Italy and China on cases. Kio-Hako’s arrival in Venice in "The Killer's Bloody Handkerchief" is accompanied by cheering throngs in the streets.
