Rasputin

Grigori Efimovic Rasputin, commonly known simply as Rasputin and also known as the Mad Monk, (born January 21, 1869 in Pokrovskoye, Tyumen Province, Russia) is the main antagonist of the 1997 animated film Anastasia. He is voiced by Christopher Lloyd (also known for portraying Doc Brown from Back to the Future and Judge Doom from Who Framed Roger Rabbit) and his singing voice was provided by Jim Cummings. He is a tall, scrawny, scary looking man. He wears a brown robe (however, in the books it has a gold interior) with black shoes, (Which appear to be high heeled). He wears some sort of purple clothing beneath his robe, but the only part of this that is shown is the sleeves. His robe trails along the ground. He has black hair that is tied back into a ponytail and has a black mustache that connects to his long black beard going below his waist. His skin is a rotting, pale green and he has skeletal like long fingers and fingernails. He has somewhat rotten teeth. He has a hood that hangs off of the back of the neck of the robe. Around his waist is a gold rope sash with three beads. The rope is tied around his reliquary which hang at his shins. His sleeves go as long as his waist. Another noticeable feature is that he appears to be wearing nothing under his robe, yet he has a strange purple clothing at the neck and sleeves. Since at the beginning of the film, Rasputin was seen as an arrogant and very wicked man, to the point of killing the entire family without any remorse. He's the type of man who is capable of giving everything to fulfill their promises, bequeathing to the point of selling his soul to the devil just to have the power to destroy the Romanov Family. Also, he is seen to be somewhat obsessive and impulsive with his objectives when these are not achieved, such as the case of Anastasia. He's a man of rude nature, due that he constantly hits his assistant, Bartok. Rasputin also has to walk the line between being truly a villain yet play a part in a lot of the comedy of the film.[1]
