What lurks in the shadows?
"Consort of Shadow". That name is spoken with equal parts awe and fear the world over. Little is known about his background. Some say he is a tracker. Others say he's a vigilante. While other's say he is a bounty hunter. These descriptions convey a truth, yet they fail to fully describe the complexity of this skilled hunter without peer.
He is the world's foremost assassin and hunter of criminals, a man wedded to the shadows. Yet what is it that motivates him? For one, He cannot be bought. Fame, fortune, power, and status mean absolutely nothing to him. There are only two things that carry meaning to him: The thrill of the hunt and to see justice served. His prey? Those who have committed gross atrocities and escaped the reach of justice. Those who sit in high places able to order, manipulate and execute crimes against humanity with impunity. They are the real brokers of power and influence behind governments, corporations, institutions, and other faceless entities which they use as proxies to carry out their deplorable acts to destroy their enemies, solidify their power, and fill their pockets and bellies with no remorse. They must be brought to justice.
Through means of some undisclosed scientific experiments and by means of state of the art technology, he has acquired the ability to manipulate both energy, light, and space. Their exists very few things that can resist the devastating force of the energy he can wield. Such means gives him the ability to bend light and cloak himself in shadow, giving his victims only a moment's notice as he rewards them the payment due their actions.
What strikes terror into the heart of villains is his ability to seemingly appear out of thin air despite extraordinary measures of security and defense. It is this debilitating paranoia — that he might be lying in wait in the shadows — that has given him a such fearsome reputation.
Currently he is on the trail of his arch-nemesis, a merciless and brutal stalker named Carlox the Ripper, a mercenary currently employed by Lord Recluse. Carlox has left a bloody trail of bodies in his wake and must be stopped. Only one man is able to both find and put and end to this villain and his employers once and for all. Although a natural loner, he has partnered with The Six Pillars of Justice while joining forces with the heroes The People's Vanguard to stem the tide of crime.
Villains, you will come to the realization that the arm of justice is very long indeed.
"The Six Pillars of Justice"
A rapid-response team comprised of the world's most powerful and diverse heroes containing a Defender, a Blaster, a Tanker, a Scrapper, a Controller, and a Kheldian. Individually, few are their equal, but collectively they are a force that is nigh unstoppable. Dedicated to stopping the enemy by using more "persuasive" means then Statesman and the Freedom Phalanx would publicly sanction, together, these six superheroes are capable of handling almost any threat conceived. Their motto: Whether villains are brought to justice or justice is villains, make no mistake — justice will be served!.
"Consort of Shadow" is the scout and hunter of the team able to follow almost any trail. When it comes to damaging and crippling the primary target, few can match his devastating power.

Super Group Members
"Consort of Shadow" has accumulated many enemies, but there exists one who is almost his equal -- Carlox the Ripper. His hatred for Carlox runs deep and is personal. Their first and only encounter ended in a stalemate that left them both severely wounded, both on the brink of death. Consort has vowed the next time they meet, one of them will not leave the battle alive.
