14 Dark Heroes (Who Are All Basically Zorro Rip-Offs, Really)
The Cowl – there are dozens of characters who wear the mask and dark cloak that epitomize scowling. Investigative, dark characters who are out there trying to make up for childhood trauma, and investigating the dark to protect the innocent.
These characters could all be carbon copies of the one original character whose shadow is split apart and casting multiple fractured shadows on the wall, while remaining a dependable, vengeance-filled whole by the flames of humanity’s collective spiritus mundi, screaming tales about a wild man who runs around in the dark with his underwear on the outside and a cape, beating the absolute, ever-living crap out of anyone idiotic, evil, or screwed-up enough to try and mess with people in their town, like some dark, evil gargoyle god, defending a town, but horribly.
Yes, if there's enough darkness then everything looks them same (that is pretty much darkness' thing), but these? These make darkness' job especially easy.
