Nightingale: But we should never have helped Ebon. He’s crazy.
Gear: Well, it doesn’t take brains to figure that out. What’s he up to this time?
Nightingale: He wants to block out the sun. We’ve been stealing parts for a machine that Tech is building. He calls it the Blackout Box. Ebon wants to set it off where no one will see it; once that happens, it’ll spread dark matter all over the sky, and make Dakota dark forever. Then, Ebon wants all of the Night-breed to take over the city — with him in control.
Gear: As what, Mayor Ebon?
Static: More like King Ebon.
Nightingale: He calls us his army of darkness.
