Subj: The "severed head" idol comes from one of the myths about the Templars :-)

      So're thinking it wasn't just named after Alexandre Dumas the author of the Three Musketeers or the Count of Monte Cristo? \:\)

    Let's say that I am trying to rationalize why, inside story, former Templars whould name themselves the Order of Saint Dumas ... Still, it does make sense that a Templar from the Mas Déu would call himself "Du Mas". (^_^')

Maybe the founder of the order Dumas liked The Man in the Iron Mask portion of The Vicomte of Bragelonne: Ten Years Later \:\)

I mean he had that whole disembodied head in a mask thing going for a while there.

    Also, I don't think that's a coincidence if DumaH (h, not s) and Azrael are both angels of destruction and that Dumah is also an angel of vindication.

    So, I wouldn't be surprised if it was a play on words when he decided to use "Dumas" since both the Dumah angel and Alexandre Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo are about vindication. \:\-\)

Curiously enough, nobody at DC comics (well, except Grant Morrison, see below) thought about linking the head of "Baphomet" to Ra's Al Ghul.

Instead, Baphomet was revealed to be Onomatopoeia, the villain created by Kevin Smith.

Still, Grant Morrison seemed to suggest in the Batman: Incorporated books that the Sigil of Bahomet was the symbol of Leviathan, and, thus, the symbol of Ra's Al Ghul.
