Character History

Capris is the twin sister of Jackie Estacado. When she was born Capris was taken, at her mother's request, by Father Brendan who raised her away from her brother who the priest knew would be cursed upon his 21st birthday. The hope was that by separating the siblings they might spare Capris the fate that was destined for Jackie. Capris grew up a happy child and was raised by Father Brendan as his own daughter in a separate orphanage. Uncle Frankie learned of Capris' and considered bringing her into their family but decided against it to spare her the ugly side of their lives after seeing how innocent she was.

One day after her 18th birthday Capris returned to the room she shared with her best friend and found her dead. While it appeared she committed suicide Capris did not believe this as Brooke had been so ecstatic that her life was going so well after finishing school and landing a good job. Capris and Father Brendan broke into the room and Capris removed her friends diary from its hiding place. They also found a video tape depicting Brooke and a public figure having sex.

The Sheriff opted not to follow up on the lead as he said it would cause a scandal.

After turning 21 Capris, like her older brother, inherited the powers of the darkness. As the younger sibling she did not inherit full use of it. She was found by Robert Bearclaw (Ripclaw) who trained her in the use of her abilities. Capris then sought revenge for the murder of her friend. She executed the producer, distributor, and star (the sheriff) for her friends death.

She later introduced herself to her older brother and told him where he could find Frankie who was being held by Lauren Franchetti, the (then current) Angelus. She also informed Jackie that they were siblings and if he had any doubts to ask Frankie when he saw the Don.

Capris is next seen watching over Ripclaw and Jackie while the two prepare to save the world. Capris contemplates taking all of Jackie's power for herself (IE: by impregnating herself with his child) but opts not to because that would destroy all the faith Robert has in her and she respects the cybernetic mutant too much for that to happen. She simply kisses her brother (exclaiming the man can kiss even when he's unconscious) and then is joined by Jenny, Ripclaw's fiance.

It is apparent that Jenny does not care for Capris, but Capris calls her on it (implying she's jealous). After stopping the Armageddon that Ripclaw foresaw, Capris disappeared.

Character Powers and Equipment

Powers and AbilitiesEdit


  • Teleportation: Capris wields a very small fraction of the Darkness that allows her to kill, and teleport. She has been shown to teleport projectiles that are approaching her away, or even large automobiles. She can then make them appear from dark areas (like the darkened ceiling of a club). The full extent of her powers have not been shown.


Capris is very skilled with firearms.

Strength level

Possesses greater than average strength.


  • Light: The Darkness power is unable to operate in the light. However creatively removing light from the vicinity of the host (via shadows, smoke, covering light) allows the Darkness to once again function.



  • Armor: The Darkness is capable of creating anything it needs. By using it, Capris can also make dark armor like her brother does.


The Darkness is capable of creating anything it needs.


The Darkness is capable of creating any weapon it desires.
