The Devil of Grand Central

The Devil of Grand Central

In her book, The Mole People, Jennifer Toth talks briefly of The Dark Angel – a man who lives many levels beneath Grand Central Station, who, according to some of the area Homeless, is the devil himself. The tales that some share with her, along with her won encounter with The Dark Angel is certainly disturbing, leading her to conclude that at the very least, this man is a dangerous psychotic who exudes an almost palpable aura of evil.

What Toth could not have realized, though, is that the Dark Angel is the devil…or at least a reflection of him. He is a Legendary, created from the Radiance and shaped by the fears of millions. A distillation of every evil impulse the city generates, he lives in a lair beneath Grand Central, his influence spreading around him like the strands of a web. He rules this single location absolutely, but has no subjects – no one else lives there. Still, denizens of the Underworld can encounter his disciples – those who wish to share his power…and some have even traveled to the Dark Angel’s lair looking for some sort of information that only he possesses, like the withes in the wilderness of the old fairy tales.
