This is my idea of a Stick Gladiator(yaknow, the stick characters on fluidanims,com <- sorry for breaking NG rules).
The inspiration for the name and top hat is Baron Samedi, wich is the loa(god) of death and sex in Haitan Voodoo and always wears a top hat. The idea of the black and white thingie, I got the inspiration from the Ying Yang sign.
I don't do animations for him or better art, because I ain't a good artist to do it.
Appearence: Half body is white, other half is black. Wears a top-hat with a purple line.
Pro's: With his wand, he can summon small ghosts(or one strong one) to fight for him or use them as weapon/protection. He can also turn the wand into a scythe(I got this idea from Grim Reaper, since he also represents death).
Con's: He is just a shaman. If he loses his wand he has to summon it, wich costs some time in wich he is vulnerable.
