New Villain - Vincent Diagoras

Postby Kooshmeister » Fri Sep 05, 2014 2:21 pm

Vincent Diagoras is a self-proclaimed scholar of the strange and unnatural. To the public, he is an oddball occult expert and antique collector, whose name regularly turns up on the donation list of the Megakat City Museum of History. Modestly wealthy, he has financed numerous archaeological digs over the years. In truth it is because he hopes that the expeditions will uncover artifacts of magical power for him to use, for behind his public persona as a philanthropist, Vincent has a deep, dark secret and a lust for arcane, forbidden knowledge that can't be quenched. He is in fact a member of a secret, profane society of which Governor Clawstone (the governor of the state Megakat City is in) is the de-facto leader. The Tome of Time was unearthed by one of the expeditions Vincent Diagoras funded, but what he'd actually been searching for was the Pastmaster's fabled pocketwatch. Disappointed at not being able to acquire it, and finding he couldn't use the Tome, he donated it to the museum.

He purchased (ex) Deputy Mayor Balcus' former home of Darkhaven Manor, and now resides there. To his annoyance, the basement alchemical laboratory had been meticulously removed, stone by stone, and all of Balcus' arcane secrets taken with it. Not one to be dissuaded, he converted the gold foundry in the cellar (itself converted from a turn of the century wine distillery) into a place of dark worship and evil magic, his own private workshop of the strange, the weird and the unnatural. Although not usually one who comes into conflict with Megakat City's authorities, he will one day, because the cult he's in plans to release something dark, ancient and evil upon the world, intent on sacrificing Megakat City and everyone in it in their pursuit of complete power. Diagoras himself bears no particular ill will towards the world, and this plan is mostly Clawstone's, however he'll go along with it out of simple mutual benefaction - whatever gets him magical powers (more than he already has anyway) is good in his eyes.

He wears dark colors, and has distinctive, slicked down hair trimmed very short at the sides and back, in the style of Heinrich Himmler (or Milton Dammers from The Frighteners).

Primary inspirations for the character include Lord Henry Blackwood from Sherlock Holmes, Milton Dammers as noted, and Amos Hackshaw from the H.P. Lovecraft pastiche Cast a Deadly Spell.

I gotta say, Kooshmeister. This is pretty sweet. I kinda like the more normal look that most SK baddies don't go for. He looks quite dapper, too. :lol:

Thanks. Heh, now just need to draw his minions. He uses regular kats as henchmen but also has a living gargoyle enforcer/familiar like Hackshaw in Cast a Deadly Spell.

Sick story bro. Did you write it yet? Also, will General Boggs and Captain Pomery return since they take orders from Clawstone since he's governor. Will Callie become governor? What about Manx? Is this after End of The SWAT Kats?

No, not yet.

Probably not, unless a situation calls for the Army. And they only take orders from the Governor under certain circumstances.

Probably not.

I hope not... :lol:

Most likely, yeah.

Well, for one thing, the character has changed a lot in concept since then, heh.

I like the idea of the two-faced bad guy and driven by a lust for knowledge instead of money/control. It reminds me of the classic good guys know the bad guy did it, but the city loves him too much to believe it.

How would the Swat Kats deal with this new foe? Will our favorite doctor step up to the challenge? Perhaps a shadow war with Dark Kat? The possibilities are endless!

I can't wait to see where this leads! ViperSMile

Upon rereading what I'd written above, it seems I was mistaken, and Vincent hasn't changed that much since I posted that, heh. Anyway, here's a finished, colored pic of him:
