this is Harap Alb from the romanian fairytale with the same name
he is the victim of identity theft and is forced to go through very dangerous trials by the perpetrator (who is bald btw). Among the things he's forced to do includes bringing jewels from a magical deer's furr and that deer kills living beings only by looking at them (the beheaded deer depicted in my drawing), he has to bring the tastiest lettuce ever from the garden of the bear... etc.
he is holding Statu-Palmă-Barbă-Cot's sword in his hand the special sword that Saint Sunday gave to him (she also aided him in his other trials), which is the only sword that can cut the deer's head.
By the way, after the deer was beheaded, it could still talk until sunset and kept trying to persuade Harap Alb to show himself so it can petrify him
ps: i am aware he's not even getting close to wearing traditional romanian clothing The name 'Harap Alb' originates with the old Romanian word harap, which originates with the word "Arab" and covers the sense of "Black person" (or "Moor"), and 'alb', meaning "white". The notion of Harap Alb has therefore often been translated as "White Moor" or "White Arab"
The use of harap in this case primarily refers to the protagonist's slave condition, in distant relation to the African slave trade.
