Mackandal was a rebel, prophet, terrorist leader, magician, and messiah during the slave revolts in Hispaniola. He gained notoriety for his skill at using stolen French firearms and organising European-style training camps. He was captured and sentenced in 1758, but he claimed that no white authority could restrain him and, rather than dying, he would simply change form when burned on the stake. Indeed, as the fire consumed him, the stake unexpectedly collapsed; his followers took this as confirmation that he had become a loa. Others have hypothesised that he died just as the world again intersected with the War, leaving him stranded at historical crossroads. It is doubtful that his body survived in any way, though charred fragments of his stake or skeleton were treasured in later years. (COMIC: Bêtes Noires & Dark Horses)
