Sebastián. Sebastián was created by the Mexican author Enrique López Alarcón and José Ignacio de Alberti and appeared in Sebastián el Bufanda o el robo de la calle de Fortuny in 1916 and was then serialized in La Novela Policíaca in 1918.

Sebastián is a Lupin. He is a suave, daring jewel thief who is a master of disguise and who runs rings around Aguirre, the dull (if ploddingly efficient) policeman assigned to capture him. Sebastián's assistants include a thug, Revilla, a corrupt policeman, and Schulze, a jeweler-by-day, fence-by-night.
