Until recently, Darien earned his living as a small-time thief. Then his criminal career was ironically interrupted by a detour onto the path of the straight-and-narrow.
Sentenced to life in prison for a crime he (mostly) didn't commit, Darien was transfered from jail to labratory when he agreed to be a guinea pig in a secret, government experiment. Because Darien's own brother is the head scientist in the experiment, Darien believed he was basically safe.
A gland that secretes a mysterious substance -- Quicksilver -- was implanted at the base of Darien's skull. The Quicksilver secretions enable him to become invisible at will, but they unexpectedly also degrade his higher brain functions, unleashing his dark impulses and pushing him towards insanity.
The inevitible destruction of Darien's mind can be only partially and temporarily suppressed by a counteragent, administered on a frequent basis by his government handlers. Consequently, Darien has struck an uneasy deal: the counteragent in return for serving a clandestine government agency as a secret operative.
But even without the degenerative effect of Quicksilver, Darien still struggles with his dark side. And he's a loose cannon to his bureaucratic handlers, who seem not entirely pure themselves.
