This is very good. I love that you've incorporated so many symbols into the picture: the snake, the cockerels, the doll...it's a great depiction of the Baron.

Yes. But I had drew this picture before I watched this film.
I think that baron Samedi can be one of Dr. Facilier's "Friends from the Other Side" )

It goes beyond that; what with his garb and powers, Facilier is directly associated with Samedi.

Yeah, I asked cause i had a theory that Baron Samedi was his shadow possessing him, since spirits have to posses the priest in order to give him power. That's from my research, so correct me if im wrong.

You're right, but I don't think shadow could have been the baron, since shadow clearly wasn't possessing him. Mind, in his death scene, shadow was hiding behind Facilier's back... Facilier made a deal with the Loa to get his shadow, so I think not. But he clearly is drawn to the Baron. I mean, CLEARLY.

Seconded. Shadow is also clearly a coward and afraid of being taken by the 'friends'. Death himself wouldn't be afraid of death, nor would be be taken by "the other side", it wouldn't make any sense.

But Baron Samedi was Facilier's prime inspiration point, as well as Papa Doc Duvalier, who often dressed and posed as Baron Samedi to inspire fear in the Haitian people.
