Charon, a Ferryman
Ol' Mr. Charon here was a ferryman way back when being called a ferryman held no other connotations. It's probably for the best he never lived to this day, where such a title could be intentionally misconstrued and used in a hurtful manner. However, being a sort of walking dead, he really didn't dodge that bullet, like, at all. Probably why he speaks softly and carries that big stick.
