John Kirowan

Professor John Kirowan is a fictional character from Robert E. Howard's contributions to H. P. Lovecraft's story cycle "the Cthulhu Mythos". Kirowan is partnered with the character John Conrad, to the extent that these stories are referred to under the group title Conrad & Kirowan. Professor Kirowan is a younger son of a titled Irish family and a scholar of the Mythos who travelled in search of forbidden knowledge, his ancestor, Sir Michael Kirowan was a medieval knight famous for killing a fierce and notorious villain, whose ghost Kirowan will meet and escape from. In Budapest he studied with a man called Yosef Vrolok but refused to "descend to the foul depths of forbidden occultism and diabolism to which sank". In revenge, Vrolok used his "vile arts" to turn" the only woman Kirowan loved", against him and "debauched" her. In order to have his own revenge, Kirowan travelled the world seeking greater knowledge of the occult but became sickened by what he learned and renounced this knowledge. In life he joined the Wanderer's Club, "which is composed of the drift of the world, travelers and all manner of men whose paths lie outside the beaten tracks of life."The story The Haunter of the Ring provides much of Kirowan's background as well as establishing a link to Howard's Conan stories.

The ring of the title is Thoth-Amon's Serpent Ring of Set, first mentioned in the short story The Phoenix on the Sword. Kirowan states that it has been "handed down by foul cults of sorcerers since the days of forgotten Stygia."

Redbeard (comics)

Redbeard is a series of Belgian comic books published in French, created by writer Jean-Michel Charlier and artist Victor Hubinon in 1959. After their deaths the series was continued by other writers and artists, including Jijé, Christian Gaty, Patrice Pellerin, Jean Ollivier, Christian Perrissin and Marc Bourgne; the series was popular in France and The Netherlands, but has not yet been published in English. In the late 1970s and the early 1980s, most of the classic episodes were published in Yugoslavia under the name Demon s Kariba. In Croatia, the series was first published under the name Crvenobradi but under the name Riđobradi. In Germany, the series is known under the name: Der rote Korsar, in Denmark 5 albums have been published under the name Rødskæg. In the sixties it was a part of the contents of Greek magazine "Asterix", by Spanos editions In the seventies two episodes were published in Finland, under the name Punaparta, in Portugal 5 Barba Ruiva albums have been published. Redbeard is a pirate of French origin.

After a troublesome youth he went roaming the seven seas for gold and fortune on his ship, the Black Falcon. He has gathered a great fortune over the years, most of, hidden in the Florida Everglades, but a lot of his fortune was needed to repair his ships. He used to have a secret base on an uninhabited island, but this was destroyed first by the British and Dutch forces and in a volcanic eruption. According to the spin-off series, his real name is Jean-Baptiste Cornic. Eric Lerouge, is the adopted son of Redbeard. In fact, he can be seen as the main character of the series, despite the title, as some episodes deal with Eric and do not feature Redbeard at all. In 1715, Redbeard found young Eric during a raid on a ship, his true name and legacy were revealed in documents that Redbeard had taken during the attack. Eric's true name is Thierry de Montfort, he is a nobleman, but the claim to his father's name has been lost, so he feels destined to travel the seas. Eric dislikes the pirate life and does not want to succeed Redbeard, wishing instead to choose to lead an honest life, but many obstacles lay in his path.

He has studied at the Royal Navy in London by using a fake name. He tried to earn a living as a captain on a tradeship, but Redbeard keeps coming back into his life, needing him for one of his jobs. Tripod is Redbeard's righthand, he is an inventor and has great knowledge of surgery and strategy and speaks Latin fluently. He has each containing hidden tools, medicines, or weapons. One leg is modified into a rifle. Baba is an escaped slave of African origin, being abducted by slave traders from the Gulf of Guinea, he was freed by Redbeard, chose to remain as his loyal servant. Baba is as strong as a bull, can swim like a dolphin, he had a sister named Aïcha. The Black Falcon is the name of Redbeard's ship. There have been at least four different Falcons; this first Falcon was a Brig, blown up by Redbeard himself after it was captured by the Spanish. The second Black Falcon was a three-masted barque, it burned while being sieged by the pirate Alvarez; the third Falcon was a three-masted barque, but with a narrow hull.

It had extended rigging and bigger sails, that could be raised and lower from the deck itself. Next to regular cannons, it featured two heavy cannons, named after Gog and Magog. There were 30 connected muskets, that could be fired at once; the ship could drop Naval mines. There was a hidden surprise in the form of Greek fire: copper tubes could spray this substance over the water and onto enemy ships; the ship gained its nickname the ship from hell in the siege of Algiers, causing mass mayhem and turning a great portion of the city into ashes. However, it was blown up again by Redbeard, as there was no escape possible from the Dardanelles near Istanbul; the fourth Back Falcon is again a regular three-masted barque. Redbeard is parodized in the Asterix comic series. Since the album Asterix the Gladiator, a group of pirates appear in nearly every story, their ship sinks at every meeting. Intended as a one-off joke, the pirates' appearance was so successful that they were integrated in the Astérix series.

They were featured in both the 1968 animation film Asterix and Cleopatra and the 2002 live-action film Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra, as well in three other animations: Asterix in Britain, Asterix Conquers America and Asterix and the Vikings. The parody has its origins in the fact that Jean-Michel Charlier had worked with the authors of Asterix, René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo, in the founding of the Franco-Belgian comics magazine Pilote in 1959; this magazine was the launching vehicle for both Redbeard. Although in several countries of Continental Europe, Redbeard is a popular comic series in its own right, the popularity of Asterix's pirates is one of the few occasions when parody figures have overshadowed their originals. Redbeard's adventures take place in the period between 1715 and 1750; the character of Redbeard was based on various historical pirates, like the Frenchman Robert Surcouf, as Charlier & Hubinon created three comics about him between 1949 and 1952, these stories would be the basis of this series.
