Notes and Trivia

  • It should be noted that Charon, in Greek mythology,  is the ferryman of Hades who transports souls of the newly deceased  across the river  Styx that divided the world of the living from the world of the dead. A coin, which is a recurring symbol  throughout John Wick, is used to pay Charon for his services.  At this point in the film series, Charon's role and proximity to the John Wick character appears as neutral, courteous and  patronizing, even somewhat benevolent.
  • He deeply respects John, as seen that he was willing to look after his dog while he was out of the country, even though it was against continental rules. Before John is going to be hunted by every assassin in the world, Charon tells him that it was a genuine pleasure to know and work with John.
  • Charon bears many similarities to Virgil from the Divine Comedy/Dante's Inferno story. He offers John advice, reflects upon his actions throughout the movies, and aids him (albeit indirectly) in his journey in both movies.
