Who is the Saint? The Saint is the literary creation of author Leslie Charteris He has appeared in around books, in many different languages, in films, television, radio plays, recorded books-on-tape, and comic strips. Essentially, the Saint is an adventurer. Leslie Charteris never disclosed details of the birth and childhood of Simon Templar.
Templar is wealthy, but we don't know if his wealth is a legacy, or a result of his 'adventures'. His perspective on life is to make the most of what life has to offer; to seek out adventure and excitement; to refuse to be constrained by the dictates and restrictions of twentieth century convention. Adventure came to him not so much because he sought it as because he brazenly expected it.
He believed that life was full of adventure, and he went forward in the full blaze and surge of that belief. It has been said of a man very much like Simon Templar that he was "'a man born with the sound of trumpets in his ears'"; that saying might almost equally well have been said of the Saint, for he also Why, they're meat and drink - they're the things that make life worth living!.
Into battle, murder, and sudden death, Good Lord, deliver me up to the neck! Thus spoke the Saint, that man of superb recklessness and strange heroisms and impossible ideals; and went on to show, as few others of his age have shown, that a man inspired can swashbuckle as well with cloak and stick as any cavalier of history with cloak and sword He is often called the 'Robin Hood of Modern Crime' because he fights on the side of justice but not necessarily on the side of the Law.
He has no particular love for the police, but often aids them in their crime-fighting endeavours because particular criminals carefully circumvent the Law, or the Law only provides a slap on the wrist, or because a criminal has greatly offended the Saint's sensibilities. I'm on it because I just can't live happily ever after. I've had enough adventures to fill a dozen books, but instead of satisfying me they've only left me with a bigger appetite. If I had to live the ordinary kind of safe, civilized life, I'd die of boredom. Risks are food and drink to me
