Who do you think the Masked Man really is? Do you think it might be the devil and it's an analogy for the Faust that Melchior an Moritz were reading together? When Melchior's mother told them that they can't fully understand the play?

The masked man is described in a variety of different ways. I like to think of him as some form of angel because his purpose in appearing in the play's final scene is to show Melchior the way to redemption at his death.
