|First Comic Appearance||The Third Wish #1|
Mohlomi is an African witch doctor who is assumed to be dead over 200 years. Yet he is still alive and looks about 60 years old. He gave Hellboy a little bell in Hellboy: The Third Wish #1 to protect him from evil.
The character is presumably loosely based on the the African philosopher, prophet and Healer Mohlomi who lived during the 1700's.
