What Fictional Character Is This?

Thu Nov 07, 2002 11:54 am

There is this fictional character I have seen here and there, in various artworks before. It's an archetypal character - ie, not a _specific_ person, as such - a characterization you might say.

Anyway, it's typically a tall, skinny man, dressed all in black, wearing a great big top hat featuring smoke billowing out the top. This character is often associated with death, greed or corruption. Its the kind of character you might see in a Pink Floyd video.

Any ideas who/what this "character" is??

Nope, not the grim reaper.

BUT, I do believe he may be called "The Capitalist".
