Deceased (Trapped in the Otherworld)
|Real World information|
- "I once imagined, I too would control the Darkness."
- – The Crucified to Jackie. [src]
The Crucified is a side character appearing in The Darkness.
Early Life Edit
Centuries ago, before the dawn of history, a Darkness host found a precious item that helped bring the Darkness under control. Centuries later, the Crucified fashioned the guns to harness its power into a weapon. At some point, the Darkness host passes away and gets crucified and trapped in the Otherworld.
The Darkness Edit
Many centuries later, Jackie Estacado came across the Crucified in the Hills. After telling the word that represent hope for Jackie (Jenny), the Crucified gave his Darkness Guns to him, that have been modified over the years. The Crucified then warns Jackie to use the guns wisely, or the Darkness will consume his soul.
- In the Otherworld, the Crucified represents one of the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse, Death.
- He may be a reference to the myth of the crucified Canadian, a propaganda story by the Allied press during the First World War that alleged that German troops had crucified a Canadian prisoner with bayonets to either a barn door or a tree in full view of Allied lines.
