Anfractua was the Fidgettine missionary that converted Dragomira from paganism (Saint Fidgeta and Other Parodies; 18).

Inspiration

Anfractuous: Full of windings and intricate turnings; tortuous[1].

Bowen wonders if Bellairs was thinking of a play on fractious ("inclined to make trouble; peevish[2]") – “which might be a good satirical name for a missionary.[3]"
