2. 1. X is an inept and incompetent police detective in the French Sret, whose investigations are marked with chaos and destruction he largely causes himself. His attempts at solving a case usually lead to misfortune for himself and others. Regardless of his rather limited ability, X successfully solves his cases and finds the correct culprits, even if this success is achieved entirely by accident. Despite this, X does appear to show some awareness that he is not the most competent or intelligent person, as he is notably embarrassed by and quick to brush aside his more extreme acts of clumsiness with phrases such as "I know that", and attempts to appear elegant and refined regardless of what calamity he has just caused. In the Steve Martin incarnation, however, although he can be very eccentric, arrogant and accident-prone, he is a more competent and clever detective than in the original movies, being able to deduce in the end who is the main villain behind the crimes depicted. X's immense ego, eccentricity, exaggerated French accent and prominent moustache were derived from Hercule Poirot, the fictional Belgian detective created by Agatha Christie. 3.
