Skin encrusted with unknown substance
The Guild of Calamitous Intent
Barnacle Badhul (usually address as only "Badhul") is the manservant of the criminal Wide Wale. He is thin, with dark skin and deformed features from some unknown affliction.
Badhul is extremely well-mannered and loyal to Wide Wale. In return, Wide Wale is highly respectful of his servant.
- Barnacle Badhul's skin condition would seem to be similar to that of the cursed mariners from the legend of Davy Jones, popularized in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series.
- His skin condition is reminiscent of barnacles clinging to a surface, like a boat or a pier.
- His last name may be a reference to Dr. M.A. Badhul Haq who is an assistant professor of Marine Biology at Annamalai University in India and the co-author of several papers concerning diseases in fish and other marine animals.
