alga and mantis,

I concede the point. You're right--I hadn't looked that carefully at the 
sequence at Baldanders' castle. The connection to Faust is definitely 
there--with the Homunculus, after all.

I suppose I hadn't really connected alchemy with the Gothic tradition 
before--maybe "Frankenstein" is the meeting point, then.

So...if Typhon is--in one sense--an alchemical allusion, what is the 
significance of the allusion? Is Typhon representative of a desire to 
perfect the human form (by defeating death)?
