Arsene Lupin was a creation by French author Maurice Leblanc during the beginning of the 20th Century. He was a gentleman thief who swindled various pompous marks out of their jewelry, fortunes, or schemes. The Japanese manga king with the odd penname Monkey Punch revitalized the character in his famous serial comic Lupin III, with the not-so-gentlemanly grandson of the gentleman thief. He is joined in his adventures by comrades Jigen and Goemon who are a marksman and a Japanese swordsman respectively.
