    The alien is actually kind of interesting. Now the Roman vignette, is this the guy that comes out to "finish" fallen combatants? Interesting mask he's wearing, I like it!

    @ Jay, Charon is the ferryman of Hades (place of the dead in general, not a place of punishment as then establish the Christian religion. It is to him that the dead man must pay his passage over Acheron, the river between the two transient worlds, on a boat which he directs. bearded old man in appearance, she was not paid no malice in ancient Greece when the Etruscans lent him the bloody nature of a God whose characteristics foreshadow the Christian image of the Devil (pointy ears). A perception that persists in antiquity since Roman gladiators in combat, it is a slave with mask Charon who had completed the gladiators.
    To my knowledge, he finished dying gladiators, a sledgehammer blow behind the head.

    The character who [may or may not have] officiated at gladiator fights actually represented the Etruscan Charun, who was not the same character as the Greek Charon. The Etruscan version of Charon was actually called Aita.

    Interesting idea for a figure though.
