|~ Nicolae Carpathia to Gerald Fitzhugh, claiming he will defeat Jesus Christ.|
Nicolae Jetty Carpathia, also known as the Antichrist, is a fictional character and one of the main antagonists of the Left Behind book series.
In the original live-action films, he was portrayed by Gordon Currie. In Vanished: Left Behind - The Next Generation, he was portrayed by Randy LaHaye.
Carpathia was born because of the genetically engineered Project People's Victory. He had blue eyes and blonde hair, just like pure-blood Romanians. He was also extremely handsome, dashing, and tall, with thick muscles beneath his chest.
He was the dictatorial leader of the so-called "Global Community", and was an adversary to Jesus Christ and his followers. He was born in the town of Cluj somewhere in the European country of Romania. His creation was the result of a genetic engineering and artificial insemination. The followers of Satan later convince a woman that her baby would change the world. Carpathia later went out in the wilderness, but in a reverse of Christ's temptation, he goes with the temptations. He was later assassinated, and Satan takes over his body, thus making it appear that Nicolae was arisen. He later established his own religion called "Carpathianism". In his final appearance, he is defeated, and is thrown into the Lake of Fire. As Satan was being thrown into the Lake, Carpathia could be heard repeatedly shouting: "JESUS IS LORD!" in anguish.
