"Raffles: a character who has been around in literary form since the 1890s. Invented by E. W. Hornung, who meant him to be a subversion of the trope"

Since Raffles is older then Lupin, he is to my knowledge the Trope Maker, making him arguably an Unbuilt Trope, but any appearance of being a Subversion is purely coincidence.

I tend to view Fantomas as an Evil Counterpart of Arsène Lupin. So would that make his archetype an Evil Counterpart to this one?
