Harvey, no known Web page "Bump Harwell": fictional detective; Bump Harwell Paul Harwitz, no known Web page "Elmo Hash": fictional private eye; Elmo Hash Beverly Hastings: Young Adult/Juvenile Mystery/Detective author "Captain Hastings": fictional police officer in the fiction of Agatha Christie. Captain Hastings is the well-meaning but somewhat dim Watson to Hercule Poirot's eccentric Sherlock. Hastings had long ago met Poirot in Belgium. Recovering from unspecified war injuries near the start of World War I, Hastings is in a convalescent hospital in Styles, well enough now to walk extensively and even play tennis. He finishes his military service, is discharged as Captain, and deepens his relationship with Poirot. Captain Hastings agrees to share a flat with Hercule Poirot, while working as secretary to a Member of Parliament, as opposed to returning to his former employment with Lloyds of London. He often fell in love with women he met during detective cases, and finally marries one in 1925, moving with her to Argentina. He sometimes returns to Europe, and several more times works as partner with Poirot in cases. When his wife unfortunately dies, Captain Hastings comes back to Styles, because his eldest daughter (his favorite child) works nearby, and Hastings is concerned that she is romantically linked to a married man. Or maybe that's just Captain Hastings' excuse to see Poirot again. Ironically, this proves to be his final case with the great detective.
