Abigor's Origins[edit]

Though Abigor is named after the "Great Duke of Hell" Abigor (a.k.a. Eligos), I think his appearance comes from other creatures. Christianity associates Satan with imagery of goats. The comic's Abigor resembles the common depiction of the demon Baphomet, who is also used as a symbol of Satanism (Sigil of Baphomet). This one also has a goat head, humanoid body, wings and a pentagram on the forehead, like the comic's character. I'm no expert on that topic, just found something about it. Sorry for using words some people don't want to see here, but the comic has references to demonology which can't be concealed (no censorship). --Grandy02 08:19, 27 September 2008 (EDT)

Good find! I'll add this to the article. Time Questions 14:32, 28 September 2008 (EDT)
Thanks! By the way, am I the only one who thinks that Abigor looks somewhat different in the second comic? There he looks less stubby and creepier, his original appearance does actually look like a diminutive version of his more recent self. --Grandy02 15:36, 28 September 2008 (EDT)
I agree, in the first part his head is bigger compared to his body, making him look somehow childish. It might be due to the fact that the second comic was published a year after the first (maybe it was drawn later too). Time Questions 16:14, 28 September 2008 (EDT)
Worth mentioning? --Grandy02 16:24, 28 September 2008 (EDT)
I don't think so. It seems really minor. Time Questions 16:39, 28 September 2008 (EDT)
