Biography Edit

Crooked Conclusion: Brought To Light Edit

Lane was hired by the Sovereign to be part of his mercenary team that were preparing for the attack from Jackie Estacado. Led by their team leader, Lockhart, they constantly ran training drills in a private compound belonging to Sovereign. They would shoot cardboard targets that were made to look like Jackie in the Darkness armour. After testing out their phosphorous rounds, Dominguez mocks the Sovereign, angering Lockhart, who scolds him.

He then orders Dominguez to clean up the target dummies. As he takes one of the targets, he finds another intact target behind it, much to Leonard Kim's confusion who taught that they cleared out all the targets. The target turns out to be the real Jackie, which proceeds to kill Dominguez and attack the rest of the group. The mercenaries begin to panic and Bissinger realises that Jackie has purposely waited until the group uses up their phosphorous rounds. He's then instantly decapitated by Jackie, while another mercenary named Kovacelic is ripped apart.

Lockhart calls the Sovereign asking him to activate the sunburst protocol. The Sovereign does this, causing ultra violet light to turn on in the room just when Jackie lunges at Kida. This disable Jackie's powers and leaves him powerless. Kida wants to kill Jackie for killing Bissinger, but Lockhart stops him saying that is up to the Sovereign to decide. The Sovereign himself then appears and mocks him. Jackie asks him why did he lied to him to which Sovereign answers that he enjoys tormenting his kind. Long ago, The Darkness took everything from him and the Sovereign was bound to the idols made in his image.

The Sovereign then claims that Jackie will live the remainder of his harsh live under these lights. Jackie then proceeds to shatter the Sovereign from inside, take the gun from Kim and shoot out the lights. He then unleashes his Darklings on the remaining mercenaries. Lane together with his team are then ripped apart by the Darklings.
