Really...Who is this guy?
“How come his mother’s skin is bright while her son’s is way darker?”
Appearances are deceiving. Lil' Barry has been, and always will be what the situation demands him to be...nothing more...nothing less. The real answer to the question, "Who is this guy?" is this...
HE IS A NOBODY!
He is a facade, a placard, a poster, a misanthrope, a Golem.
In Jewish tradition, the golem is most widely known as an artificial creature created by magic, often to serve its creator. The word "golem" appears only once in the Bible (Psalms139:16). In Hebrew, "golem" stands for "shapeless mass."
The Talmud uses the word as "unformed" or "imperfect" and according to Talmudic legend, Adam is called "golem," meaning "body without a soul" (Sanhedrin 38b) for the first 12 hours of his existence. The golem appears in other places in the Talmud as well. One legend says the prophet Jeremiah made a golem However, some mystics believe the creation of a golem has symbolic meaning only, like a spiritual experience following a religious rite.
