|Real World information|
The Siphon is an ancient artifact of pure light that was designed to contain Dark Essence and to trap The Darkness. It is rumored that Angelus created it over thousands of years ago. It can also be used to permanently kill the Darkness host and send the host to hell.
The Darkness II Edit
Victor Valente uses it to get The Darkness from Jackie Estacado. It is first seen when Jackie is captured in the brothel. After Jackie frees himself from the cross, The Darkness demands The Siphon and its power for himself in exchange for Jenny.
It is seen again when Jackie is trapped in an iron maiden and taken to his family's old mansion. This time, The Siphon fully takes The Darkness from inside Jackie. After Jackie is freed from the iron maiden and kills a few Brotherhood minions, Victor is seen impaling Mr. Peevish with The Siphon, giving him some Darkness powers. Finally it is seen in the hands of Victor and after a long battle Jackie takes and opens the Siphon returning The Darkness to himself then stab himself with the siphon in the abdomen to get to hell to save Jenny.
The Siphon's primary function is to extract and contain the Darkness. Besides this, the relic can also permanently kill the Darkness host and send him/her to hell. Also anyone who wields the artifact has access to the full power of the Darkness and can also bestow this power to others as seen, when Victor transferred some Darkness essence to Mr. Peevish.
