~ Amahl Farouk


Amahl Farouk, often known as the Shadow King, is an extremely powerful mutant telepath who has existed for centuries. At some point in time, Farouk was confronted by the biological father of David Haller and defeated in telepathic combat, resulting in his mind being separated from his body. Despite this, Farouk's powerful psychic abilities allowed his mind to persist and retain many of his former powers, as well as allowing him to latch onto the mind of an infant David, feeding off the boy to regain his strength. Farouk spent years tormenting David, rewriting memories while siphoning his power. Eventually, after David was taken to Summerland, Farouk grew strong enough to leave David's body, possessing the recently returned Oliver Bird in order to search for his original physical form and regain the full extent of his might.
