Black Dainn is the Shadow Immortal, a member of the Shadow Clan of immortals and the mastermind behind the plot to break the seal on Jormungandr. His plan required that he had a solar child and because of that sent The Count to turn Ringo into a vampire. He also sent The Count to spy on Hel, but to Dainn's annoyance he fell in love with Hel. Dainn claims to be the true Dark Child, which often annoyed Sabata. Having no true physical form, Dainn possesses Red Ringo so as to be able to fight Django and Sabata, and to use him to break the seal on Jormungandr. Dainn is defeated and purified using the Pile Driver, however Ringo was purified with him.
As stated, he has no "true" physical body, and throughout the game relies on the possession of two characters, Nero, Violet's cat, and later Ringo to give himself a physical form. It is also very possible that he actually survived the Pile Driver and brought ShadeMan to San Miguel with the intent of using him, as after ShadeMan's purification, an unknown voice begins to speak saying that it intended to use him as a new physical body.
In Norse mythology, four stags or harts (male Red Deer) eat among the branches of the World Tree Yggdrasill. According to the Poetic Edda, the stags crane their necks upward to chomp at the branches. Their names are given as Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór. An amount of speculation exists regarding the deer and their potential symbolic value.
Relation with the Immortal SistersEdit
Though they call each other siblings, this is implied to be due to a strong bond rather than biological relations. Durathror herself states that "Dark Brother" called to her and that she was "no longer alone" once he did. This on its own leads one to believe that, at the very least, she is not biologically related to Dainn, only having been approached and recruited by him and forming a bond enough to begin referring to him as "Dark Brother". It is unknown if Duneyrr and Dvalinn too were recruited or if they truly are his biological sisters.
