* LockedIntoStrangeness: Fandorin's temples go completely gray by the end of the first novel and remain so until the end of his life. It's worth noting that he was only 22 then.


Added DiffLines:

* PrematurelyGreyHaired: Downplayed. Fandorin's temples go completely gray by the end of the first novel, when he was just 22, and remain so until the end of his life.

Literature/ErastFandorin is the eponymous protagonist of a highly popular Russian HistoricalDetectiveFiction series set in the 19th century. He starts off as a regular police clerk in Moscow in 1876 and eventually becomes a GreatDetective of international renown, on one occasion employed even by the {{Tsar|istRussia}} himself. Early in his career, he exiles himself to Japan, learns the ways of the {{ninja}}s, and returns even more {{badass}} than before. Later in his life, he becomes a technology {{geek}} (while retaining his badassitude, of course) with a special fondness for {{Cool Car}}s.

Added DiffLines:

* TrivialTitle: In the English-language market, anyway. ''The Winter Queen'' is a random reference to a hotel Fandorin stays at while in London. (As noted elsewhere on this page the novel is titled ''Azazel'' in Russian.)

* OrthodoxChristianity: Less relevant than in Akunin's other series starring Sister Pelagia, but plays an important role in the setting and occasionally the plot.
