Background Info:

In one possible future, the Earth is plunged into an age of magic and chaos in the year 2006. In this reality, documentary filmmaker Ian Morris grew to fame reporting on the heroes of the past, especially the masked vigilante known as The Rook. Plagued by a medical condition that limits his ability to sleep, Ian spent his nights dreaming about the past — until the day the past came crashing home. Finally meeting his idol, he learned that he’d been chosen to become the newest version of The Rook. Given a set of weapons by his idol, Ian became the world’s newest nocturnal avenger. Alongside his lover, Fiona Grace, this version of The Rook was active from 2009-2012, when he gave his life to save humanity from a prophecy predicted by the Mayans. Ian had fathered a child with Fiona, though he did not live to see its birth.
