Background Info:

A jazz musician, Jack Boniface nearly died one night—attacked by something out of a nightmare. By fateful chance, he escaped. Just a murderous madman with a sick flair for horror, Jack told himself later. Jack recovered. But since that terrifying experience something has changed. Now, when darkness falls, a feeling comes over him, the urge to find demons who defile the night—his night—and cast them out. Jack was always a night person, but since the attack, he thrives at night. He feels strong, wild…and violent. Unaccountably, he sees better in the dark. Jack begins to roam the streets after dark. He comes across a brutal wife-beater…a gang of muggers…a knife-wielding psycho. Demons. The night is full of demons. Jack puts each of them down hard. He’s not sure how. He was never a fighter. But, at night, he has absolutely no fear…and therefore, no limits. He improvises. He’s spontaneous. Unpredictable. It’s all jazz and he can play. By day, Jack is his old self again. But more and more he lives for the night, longs for the night.

His major enemy is Master Darque, who is able to tap into and utilize a form of necromantic power dubbed The Darque Power or Darque Energy.

Roleplaying Jack can be fun. He’s a lot more manic and crazed at night, often putting himself into crazy situations. This was especially true after he learned in the original Unity crossover that he was fated to die in 1999. That meant that he couldn’t die before then and he took some incredible chances in an effort to prove it.
