If you know your Mythology, you'd know CHARON or KHARON. He's Hell's ferryman, which is an important but boring job. Fortunately (or Unfortanely), Charon finds ways to make his job entertaining.
Charon charges a gold coin each for every soul he takes to the "other side" across the river Styx, which divides the world of the living from the world of the dead. He likes gold so much, he's willing to damn or un-damn souls for them, his most interesting trait.
