Background
It was a dark dreary night, the air was filled with fat bulbous drops of rain that pelted everyone indiscriminately. It was nearly impossible to see down the alley then lightning struck and the alleyway was awash with color. There appeaed to be no one there in the light and then as the flash of light faded another miniscule light appeared, someone under an overhang struck a match and lit a cigarette. The glow of the burning cherry was nearly a beacon in the nigh impenetrable darkness that shrouded the alley. Lightning once again struck and on the wall of the empty business building that the man smoking was hiding in sat a figure all in black with a cowl wrapped around his face and neck which flowed down into a cape. The rest of him was covered in a black leather outfit that seemed very form fitting. He was sitting on his haunches like a predator ready to pounce his feet seemed attached to the wall behind him by a black inky substance that wrapped around his black shoes and held him in place. The same substance seemed to attach to his back leaving the cape free to flow. He was staring down at the space in front of where the man was standing sheltered from the rain smoking. The black figures hair was clinging to his head dripping wetn he was so motionless he could be a statue. The light faded again, and Dark plummeted to the earth accellerated by the shadows that had held him secure now propelling him downward. He completed a double flip and the only warning smoking man had of the impending danger was the rustle of a cape. Dark land lightly with further assist from his shadows and was exploding up and into the suprised guard. One punch was all it took. Between his martial prowess and the shadow that wrapped around his fist and became harder than steel the massive man was lain low by the one punch from a much smaller opponent. Dark had been watching this group for a month waiting for them to make their move. He hadn't known it was a kidnappong but now he had to act before something very uncool happened to one very sexy Alexis Mars, great granddaughter of the candy bar tycoon, one day inheritor of billions and on top of it all, and more important to Dark, she was the head cheerleader for his brand new highschool. Dark calmly opened the door and and walked in the building and the lights were burning brightly. With a wave of his hand the entire room was dark. The room was perfectly clear for Dark. He strode in and down the stairs darkening areas as he went. He could hear the rest of the crew in the next room, they were arguing about what to do to the girl to prove that they were serious. The prevailing opinion seemed to be a finger but an ear was thrown out a few times; Dark couldn't let either of those things happen. He partially oppened the door and waved his hand all went dark and people began to freak out.

"The power just went out get a flashlight one of the thugs said."

Dark smiled behind his mask, and made a grasping gesture, people quickly realized they were in a less than natural darkness as the shade began clinging to them slowing them down. Dark leapt in and levelled the firt mook with a roundhouse that sent him flying into another goon making bad for them crunching noises. The other two realized quickly that they were under attack and grabbed out weapons the farther goon had a gun and was inching toward Alexis. The shadows again listenes to Dark's commands and proppeles him to the man. Dark grabbed the arm and shifted his weight insuch a quick move that sickening crunching noises exploded from the mans arm in multiple places and he howled in a horrible way. The set Alexis to moaning but Dark didn't have time to comfort her now. The last punk was aiming an uzi in his general direction. Dark feinted a fist in the man's direction and didn't even bother watching as the ball of shadow hurtled forward before the man could act and slammed him back into the wall. All of the criminals were either unconcious or incapacitated, the howler was now laying on the ground in fetal position in between sobs and cradling his mangled arm he seemed to have vomited. Dark went over to Alexis and said gently to her. "Don't worry I am going to get you out of here. He undid the ropes tying her to the chair with a simple swipe of his shadow claws. He easily lifted her, "it will be all right now you are safe." He grabbed her cell phone and purse on the way out. He leapt through the air of the alleyway and within moments they were at a starbucks that was getting ready to close. He instructed her to call the cops and the address where the criminals were. She clung to him for safety but with a few well thought out words he had soothed her enough to leave her with the starbucks employees. He returned to the alleyway and watched to make sure none of the crooks escaped until the police arrived. As he waited he wondered why when he was in costume he could easily talk to the hottest girl in his new school, but out of costume he was almost helpless. He was broken from his reverie by the police arriving. Well none of them had found their way out yet the police would handle it from here. He had his first day of high school tomorrow!

When he arrived home his grandfather chuckled, "Have fun?"

Dark laughed and nodded. "Another day, another life saved." He smiled at his grandfather and put away his outfit "Dinner?"

It is the way of the djin to be capricious, is it not so? And we do appreciate cleverness, and we do appreciate irony.
