The Vagabond. The Vagabond was created by Seabury Quinn (Carmichael, Jules De Grandin, Carlos de la Muerte, Professor Forrester, Major Sturdevant) and appeared in five stories in Magic Carpet and Golden Fleece between 1933 and 1939, beginning with “The Vagabond-at-Arms” (Magic Carpet, Apr. 1933).

In the 17th century Carlos de la Muerte, a.k.a. “El Tigre,” a.k.a. “The Vagabond,” is a Spaniard whose mother was an Englishwoman captured by a Moor. Carlos was raised Muslim and became a brawler and swashbuckler as an adult. He and his comrade-in-arms Black Hassan have a series of swashbuckling adventures in Algiers and across the Mediterranean and North Africa.
