Sokar

Profile

You know how all Batman has to say is "I'm Batman!" and everybody knows everything about him? Sokar's like that. Except all he has to say is "I'm darkness." Sokar is the ancient Egyptian god of 100% darkness, 100% of the time. No light, no heat, no sound, no nothing. Just darkness. And maybe a little bit of death on the side. (Kind of like Batman, come to think of it… )

Music

I've got the entire Dark Side of the Moon album by Pink Floyd on repeat. The underworld gives it an awesome echo.
The Rolling Stones rock the underworld, too. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I really dig the guitar riffs in (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction.
You know, Led Zeppelin never said whether the Stairway to Heaven goes up or down. Doesn't matter. It goes to me!
If I wasn't the god of darkness and death, I'd be the god of power chords. And The Who would play Baba O'Riley for me for eternity.

Movies

Pitch Black
Why is everybody so scared of the dark?
The Mummy

None of that Brendan Fraser crap. Boris Karloff for me.
Alien

"In space, no one can hear you scream." Is that true?
Zero Dark Thirty

Maybe the phrase (about the middle of the night) is better than the film, though.
In Darkness

Sometimes, darkness does good things. (But don't go blowing our cover.)
The Dark Knight
series by Christopher Nolan. Batman is great. I wish he'd return my fan letters sooner, but I've got eternity to wait.
The Others

Sometimes, the dead need to stop scaring the living.
