Herbert West
Herbert West is the main character in H.P. Lovecraft’s short story Herbert West-Reanimator as well as the Re-Animator series of films and comics. He is a scientist who creates a formula capable of animating dead bodies.


In the films he is portrayed by Jeffrey Combs and deviates slightly from Lovecraft's original design in having brunette hair rather than blonde - the films also have Herbert West living in the modern age, other than these minor changes the character remains virtually the same in both the book and the movies.
