Also thematically appropriate: the straight man.
A character not aware, trained, or part of the mythos, fumbling his way into (or out of, considering the wake-up-and-confused start) insanity.
So likely not a full caster or devout, something more like an ordinary man in extraordinary circumstances.
Fighter, rogue, maybe a monk straight out of the monastery, possibly even a kineticist awakening to powers he doesn't understand.
Hard mode: npc class.
This is basically what I'm running around as. We started book 3 last night. My fighter has no clue exactly what's going on with the whole mythos stuff, but his companions keep telling him we need to stop this Lowl's guy, so that' what we're trying to do.
