    The Crypt Keeper 

John Kassir

A wisecracking revenant living in the basement of a decaying mansion. The show's self-proclaimed "master of scare-emonies."

  • The Alcoholic: Never actually seen inebriated, but he really likes his liquor and is often seen with a drink close at hand.
  • Creepy Blue Eyes / Icy Blue Eyes: Boasts a rather pretty pair.
  • Depraved Dwarf: He's very short.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": In the comic and cartoon spinoff, he has at least one alias, but if he has a real name, he never mentions it.
  • Hidden Depths: He lost his parents, a mummy and a two-faced man, when he was just a baby. He's legitimately heartbroken over it and keeps the doll his father gave him to this day.
  • Pungeon Master: At every opportunity.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Specifically, he inherited Myrna's dark complexion and high cheekbones, and Enoch's strong chin and light brown hair.
  • Was Once a Man: We see him once as a baby, and barring the missing nose, he's actually pretty normal looking.

How well does it match the trope?
