Jumelia. Jumelia was created by the Indian author Panchkori Dey (Arindam Bosu, Gobindoram, Debendra Bijoy Mitra) and appeared in Mayabi (1902) and Mayabini (1928).

Jumelia is a Superhuman Femme Fatale. Jumelia is the crafty, vicious partner of Phulbabu, a criminal mastermind, and with him carries out a series of murders and dismemberments in Hooghly and Calcutta. In Mayabi Jumelia and Phulbabu take on Arindam Bosu. Phulbabu dies at the end of Mayabi, thanks to Bosu’s cleverness, and in Mayabini Jumelia duels with her Loving Enemy, Debendra Bijoy Mitra. Jumelia uses her yoga-given power to shapeshift and try to win the love of Mitra, or at least have sex with him, but Mitra refuses, being in love with his wife. Jumelia, understanding that she can’t win Mitra’s heart through force or threats, kills herself.
