Rogue, Richard. Richard Rogue was created by Ray Buffum (Rocky Jordan) and appeared in the radio show Rogue’s Gallery (1945-1951).

Richard Rogue is a Bellem. A common feature of Rogue’s Gallery was Rogue being knocked unconscious or given knockout drops, at which time “Eugor,” either a gremlin or voice inside Rogue’s mind, would appear, give Rogue hints about important clues he was overlooking, and then force Rogue to wake up.

* I'm including Rogue's Gallery in the Best of the Encyclopedia list because it remains a fun show to listen to know. Dick Powell does a good job as Richard Rogue--but of course he does--and the writing for Rogue's Gallery is generally tight, but what elevates the show into Best of the Encyclopedia territory is Eugor, a wonderful character and plot device who never fails to entertain. If not for Eugor, Rogue's Gallery would have been a solid B+ show; but Eugor's in the show, and he earns Rogue's Gallery a solid A+ and inclusion in the Best of the Encyclopedia list.
