A photo of a white male with grey hair wearing a white shirt, cream tie with writing on it, and a black overcoat. He is holding a scrap of paper with mystical runes written on it, which is burning with a green flame sending smoke into the air. His eyes are glowing green too. The light casts a malevolent shadow behind him in the shape of a man in brimmed hat, whose outstretched hand reaches towards the paper with contorted long and pointy fingers.
