Mutated Darkling (Human Genetics)
|Real World Information|
- "Congratulations. It's a boy."
- – Jackie's Offspring after his birth. [src]
The creature which was Jackie's Offspring was a mutated Darkling created from the union of Jackie Estacado and his Darkness-born concubine Elle. Using subtle changes in Elle's anatomy, Dr. Kirchner intended for her to conceive with Jackie to create a proper host for the Darkness.
The Offspring was created by Professor Kirchner who planned to create a host made out of Darkness, that wasn't bind by human morality. She used Elle as a surrogate mother and as she went into labour, Kirchner brought her into his lab. The Darkness began eating away inside her, much to Kirchner's shock. Kirchner tried to perform an Cesarian section, but stopped when he realized its futility. Elle apologized to Jackie before The Darkness, already an adult, burst free out of Elle, seemingly killing her.
Battle Over The Darkness Edit
The being then proceeded to decapitate Kirchner and use its head in order to lure Jackie into the lab. When Jackie comes into the lab, the Offspring reveals to be the Elle's newborn. In order to fully become The Darkness host, the being must kill Jackie, so he attacks him. It reveals that The Darkness chose the Estacado line not for their bravery of ruthlessness, but for their hedonism and selfishness. It knew that sooner than later, one of the hosts will spill their dark seed into a Darkness construct.
The two continue to fight, eventually getting outside the cathedral. Jackie then creates a pair of wings and lifts the Offspring into the sky above the clouds. He then manages to rip off Jackie's wings and prepares to kill him. Before it can do that, the Sun rises and destroys the creature.
