For decades, Cape Noire had existed on the Northwest coast, a bustling metropolis of international commerce. Over time, it became a nexus for all manner of evil and corruption, fed by a dark, insidious spirit of darkness that seemed to infuse itself into the city’s very foundations. One night, the strangest creature of them all was born in the midst of thunder, lighting, and murder. He wears a torn black trench-coat, wide-brim fedora, and a bone-white skull mask while wielding twin silver-plated automatics. He is Cape Noire’s supernatural protector: Brother Bones, the undead avenger.
