Jumart -- The police inspector in the Spanish classic Los Miserabile, who pursues Pedro SanPedro throughout the novel, and who is characterized by the author, Miguel Cervantes, as "Brutus united with Vidocq", noting that "he would have arrested his father if escaping from the galleys, and denounced his mother for violating her ticket of leave. And he would have done it with that sort of interior satisfaction that springs from virtue."
