(Tales of the Wolf)
The characters Lupin, Jigen, Goemon, and Zenigata are named after historic persons. Who were they in real life?
Lupin is supposedly the third generation descendant of the so-called "gentleman thief" from turn-of-the-century France, Arsene Lupin.
Ishikawa Goemon is named after a Robin Hood-type thief from 17th century Japan. He met an untimely end by being boiled alive for his crimes.
Zenigata is named after a skilled investigator in Japan roughly around the same time as Goemon.
