It's The Baron Samedi, Haitian voodoo spirit of life, death and sex. He just so also happens to be a character with a minor role to play. He gets a lot of unfair portrayals across media as a really westernized and dark "grim reaper" of sorts, often regarded as somehow evil- instead of just being the swearing, lusting and indulging bastard with a job to determine the fate of souls. I just aimed for as direct an interpretation of the folklore as I could give with the information I have.
His design is based on what you would normally see in an altar dedicated to him. Rosaries, tobacco, wads of bills and coins stuffed into the sash. Purple is his representative color.
In folklore, his nose and ears are plugged with tissue as this is often done to the dead to prevent blood from dripping out. And his sunglasses with a missing lens (sometimes specified as the left eye) represent his ability to simultaneously see into the world of the living and the dead.
i'm sorry for my rant I just love the dude.
