The following characters are known for being 'detective'-type characters. The big archetype example being Sherlock Holmes.

If they're a superhero, they get some leeway for qualifying (e.g., reporter, conspiracy theorist, magician). If they're an actual cop, they have to be a detective. Otherwise I'll fill this list up way too fast. Also, I'm passing on characters that originated in other media (e.g., Spock, the Fringe characters).

Suggestions welcome.
