Who is "The Evangelist"?

"The Evangelist" is the opposite of "The Boogieman"; the light to his awful shade. "The Boogieman" has appeared in several images from the Gorillaz world, and now featured in several videos. "The Boogieman" is believed to a dark and hideous figure, composed of all the evil in the world, all wrapped up inside his black swirling cloak. He has a gas mask for a face. He may have reappeared throughout history, an ominous figure accompanying the re-emergence of Murdoc Niccals through all of time.

"The Boogieman" ate the soul of the Policeman in the 'STYLO' video, appears to gas 2D to bring him to the Plastic Beach island in a Gorillaz ident and most recently was seen dragging the manatee down in the 'On Melancholy Hill' video. Who or what The Boogieman is largely still unknown but it looks like he's here to collect on Murdoc's long outstanding debts, perhaps to drag him down for good.

"The Evangelist" is a similar entity, but the flip-side of "The Boogieman". He/she may even be revealed as "The Boogieman's" avenger. His/her outer appearance is yet to be defined. Many rumours fly around of his/her description. Some say that he/she is dressed head to toe in white rhinestoned-leather. Some say he/she rides a glowing white Unicorn. Some say the Unicorn likes other Unicorns….One report has stated that the Evangelist looks like a knackered cowboy on a drunken horse". Maybe all or none of this is true. Who knows? His/her true appearance will be decided in this competition. All ideas, styles and imagery will be considered.
