Sister, Lord. Lord Sister appeared in the Italian dime novel Lord Sister, Il Ladro Tenebroso #1-36 (1924-1925).

Lord Sister is a Lupin modeled on Lord Lister. Sister is a rich, young, blond, insouciant nobleman and gentleman thief who prefers to victimize evil men. As he describes himself, “I am Lord Sister, the avenging one of many faults, the dark thief who sometimes knows the justice of God.” But he makes the mistake of sending taunting notes to Percy Stuart, who then dedicates himself to capturing Lord Sister, and succeeds in the final issue of Lord Sister. Sister appears in stories with titles like “The Ghost of Porto Santo,” “The Colossal Theft of Lenin,” and “The Fatal Wedding.”
