Immanuel, Phileas. Phileas Immanuel was created by “Victor Rousseau,” the pseudonym of Victor Rousseau Emmanuel (Jim Anthony, Ivan Brodsky, Clifford, Ronald Gowan, King of Knaves, King’s Courier, Professor MacBeard, Isabel Marston, Dr. Martinus, Pennell, Shawm, Thorne, Mr. X), and appeared in twelve stories in Holland’s Magazine in 1913 and 1914, beginning with “The Amulet of Marduk” (Holland’s, June 1913).

Phileas Immanuel is a Superhuman Occult Detective. Greek-born, he has psychic abilities, and uses them to help various people with their problems. You see, souls reappear 1820 years after their bodies died, and particularly bad souls—those of murderers, fanatics, and so on—reappear in other people’s bodies, forcing Immanuel to exorcize them.
