Rodion (Rodya) Raskolnikov murdering an old pawnbroker in Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment. He believes this act will help him discover whether he is one of the common people or a "Napoleon," or "superman," one who able to step over the usual laws and social constructs against murder in order to do great things.

Later, though, Rodya feels more like he's killed himself, and that it 'was the Devil who killed the old woman.' Similarly, during the act, he's been sick and is amazed he had the strength to pull it off. So I fixed his shadow with some shady devil hands ;)

That's a 19th century lamp, there. I had to tip it over so I could do scary light 8O!!!
