That's why I'm most interested in him. Appearance-wise he is sort of Lovecraftian, and his mysteriousness backs that up. His lawful nature and some of his interests... not so much. Definitely the most interesting of the bunch, if only because it's so obvious he doesn't belong. Oh, and his apparent humility is an awesome touch. No grand palace and robes of dripping gold and gems for this guy.
In fact, I just convinced myself to get the volume of Kobold Quarterly (#22) where Wes did a Barbatos writeup.
Excellent! I really enjoyed doing those articles for KQ and am enjoying the chance to do a few more for the APs coming down the road.
Despite appearance, I don't think of Barbatos as being Lovecraftian. He's ancient and mysterious, sure, but the roll and place of the Great Old Ones is distinctly different in the campaign. Also, I think it'd be a little obvious. (Here's a bad guy with a veiled past: SURPRISE! IT'S A CTHULHU.)
No. I've got other schemes for him. Something more... fecund. ;)
