- That's not saying much. The first game was about that too.
- A Darkness Side story comic all but confirms this and The Darkness is near identical to the Haunter in the Dark with a little symbolism (Hurt by light, Tri-lobed burning eye is the 3 pairs of eyes, the haunter ends up bound to a host who goes on to change the political landscape (Haunter steered the manhattan project, Jackie took over a country))
[[ WMG: Jackie Esticado's family are related clan Lasombra.]]Given the existence of Vampires in the Darkness comics, its not unlikely that the Darkness is tied the abyss mystics of Clan Lasombra. Esticados themselves could very well be an offshoot a family of Lasombra Ghouls with mafia ties....but unlike the rest of the ghouls, they neither want nor need the embrace. Many of Lasombra's disciplines are used by Jackie Esticado and other host of the Darkness., heck one could even think that the Darkness (the entity itself) born of the abyss is actually the soul of the Lasombra Antediluvian....sleep tight kindred.
[[ WMG: The Red Priest of R'hllor banished the Darkness to "our world" from Asshai]]Melisandre and the Red Priest are not only aware of The Entity known as the Darkness, but they knew it was more trouble than the Shadow Binders could handle....For the Night is Dark and full of terrors indeed.
