Customer At Lux # 6 (illustrated by Ron Chan)

In The Kindly Ones, Lyta Hall goes out to dinner with Eric Needham at an upscale restaurant called Lux the night Daniel disappears.

This man is one of the customers of Lux.

He appears in Sandman # 57, on page 17, in panel 3.

This character is one of the many characters that has not been fleshed out in the original published comic. He appears as a silhouette in the background. Ron took this silhouette and given this character personality and a life outside of a shadow. In the published comic we do not get a back story for this character, but I would love to know Ron’s ideas behind his design for this character. What sort of history does this character have and why is he at the club? My personal impression is that he’s there to do some shady business, but I am basing this completely on the expression on his face. This is another fantastic portrait from Ron…
