First Appearance: Doc Sidhe (Baen Books, 1995); Sidhe Devil (Baen Books, 2001)
Powers/Abilities: Doc Sidhe is an inventor and wizard.
History: Doc Sidhe lives on an alternate Earth, a world ruled by magic, weird science and a healthy dose of Celtic mythology. Working out of the tallest skyscraper in the metropolis of Neckerdam, Doc Sidhe and his associates travel their Art Deco world (and to our Earth) battling super villains and gangsters in a quest for truth, justice and the fair world way.
Comments: The Doc Sidhe (pronounced she, as in banshee) books by Aaron Allston are both a tribute to and a gentle satire of Lester Dents Doc Savage novels. Allston is fairly knowledgeable about the pulps era, having previously been one of the authors of Hero Games 1930's role-playing game, Justice Inc.
CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
Doc Savage, the pulps character who inspired him
