Isn't this a very DWJ-ian situation for him to be in, though? Being 
influenced by somebody you don't understand and you're subconsciously 
fighting with? If she'd called such a character Mr. Pullman, we'd all think 
it was a frightful groaner of a pun ...

I think Lewis would have liked him a lot, though. I know he praised some 
other books with very un-Christian (but not evil) worldviews, such as 
_Childhood's End_ by Arthur C. Clarke.
