Linus Bech was a sorcerer that worked for Frank Niley. He was a convicted criminal, having been in prison twice, once for assault with a deadly weapon and once for murder (human sacrifice). Linus was close to seven feet tall and weigh over five hundred pounds. Because Linus was an eunuch, he was hairless and had the voice of a soprano. He sacrifices Betty Schaffer, the woman that accused Richard of rape, to a demon and later tries to do the same to Charlotte, Richard's mother. He is killed by the demon he summoned, making the demon free to return from where it came.
