I don't think Anscher counts, since he doesn't actually solve the problem. 
Koryfos *may* count, but OTOH there's so much foreshadowing: Andrew's

adore Koryfos and are convinced he will return again, and so on, and so on. 
The sensation of "where the hell did *that* come from?" isn't quite strong 
enough. But it's still *there*, so I don't know...
