Nadir. “Nadir is in truth a prince of India, but for reasons of his own he chooses to ignore his title...being wealthy and well educated both in the modern ways of our Western world, and the many long-forgotten secrets of the far east, he is able to carry on his untiring and deadly prosecution of crime, wherever he chooses.” He has a native servant, Arcot, and a technologically-advanced crime lab. He appears in stories with titles like “Pearl of the Bleeding Heart” and “The Mystery of Mr. Linn.”
