Biography Edit

Crooked Conclusion: Brought To Light Edit

Hired by the Sovereign, Lockhart led a team of mercenaries to kill Jackie Estacado. Together with the team, 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. For this he orders Dominguez to clean up the target dummies. As he takes one of the targets, he realises that it's Jackie himself. Jackie then proceeds to kill Dominguez and attacks the rest of the group.

As the mercenaries begin to panic, Bissinger realises that Jackie has purposely waited until the group uses up their phosphorous rounds. He's and another mercenary are then killed by Jackie. 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. This disable Jackie's powers and leaves him powerless. 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. Lockhart together with his team are then ripped apart by the Darklings.

Personality Edit

Lockhart showed to be wholly devoted to the Sovereign and would scold those that would show disrespect towards their boss or even him. He was cautious of Jackie and realised how dangerous in the fight he could be.
