"Jackie Estacado is carrying a dark secret deep inside him, literally. Since before the beginning of time, before there was light there was simply The Darkness and The Darkness doesn’t much care for the light. Able to inhabit only one being, one family line, The Darkness grants unimaginable power to the host in exchange for control. Once The Darkness has you, you are no longer who you once were. You are blood lust incarnate."
