The Outsider (Dishonored)

"I so enjoy watching history warp as words pass from the lips of one to the ears of another. Imperfectly formed, half understood, poorly remembered."

The Outsider, God of Void, one of the most fascinating characters from Arkane's Dishonored series (2012-2017). A mysterious, morally ambiguous supernatural being, he is likened to Jung's 'Shadow' archetype by the developers.
I love this character, especially because of his tendency to only interact with those he considers 'interesting'. Many build shrines and worship him, desiring his powerful gifts, but he rarely shows himself to them, only choosing very specific, extraordinary individuals to interact with and manipulate. Despite his immortality and seemingly limitless powers, he always seems incredibly bored and maybe a bit sad, too.
