  • Harry D'Amour is a fictional occult detective created by author, filmmaker, and artist Clive Barker. He originally appeared in the short story "The Last Illusion" in Books of Blood Volume 6, an anthology of stories written by Barker and published in 1986. Barker then adapted D'Amour and elements of the same story for the 1995 movie Lord of Illusions, which he directed and wrote. In the film, Harry was portrayed by actor Scott Bakula. Since his debut in Books of Blood, D'Amour has appeared in other prose stories and was revealed to live in the same reality as Barker's popular creations the Cenobites and the Hell Priest (whose Hellraiser movie incarnation is known to fans as Pinhead). D'Amour is said to be a native of Hell's Kitchen in New York City, first becoming a police officer but then leaving the police to become a private investigator. He becomes a specialist in occult cases after repeatedly encountering demonic and magical forces. Though he regularly encounters violence, depravity, and moral compromise, D'Amour tries to uphold his own principles of morality and will risk his life to protect the lives and souls of others, even strangers, from suffering at the hands of demonic forces. Harry wishes not only to help the living but also souls who cannot rest, describing himself as "a detective for the dead." According to Clive Barker, D'Amour's destiny of repeatedly being pitted against evil forces is "karmic payback" for his own past sins. After his initial encounters with the supernatural, Harry has his body tattooed with markers that confer protection against evil and becomes a frequent enemy of the forces of Hell, and is sometimes consulted for his expertise by different people on Earth. He often carries a .38 revolver. (en)
