Inspector Auguste “August” Dupin II is the son of the famous French detective, Auguste Dupin. His mother is Elmira Hallmark, a British seamstress Auguste met while on a trip to London. The two married and raised young August in London; Auguste Dupin having retired from his life as a French detective.
His father, Auguste Dupin, was made famous by the American author Edgar Allan Poe in his works “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”, “The Mystery of Marie Rogêt”, and “The Purloined Letter”, after hearing about his exploits while traveling in Europe.
Like his father, August combines his considerable intellect with creative imagination, even putting himself in the mind of the criminal. His talents are strong enough that he appears able to read the minds of those around him, although he doesn’t exhibit any signs of having psychic abilities.
