David Facilier Lawrence, a homo-magi born into impoverished backgrounds in the east end of Gotham. When his powers became apparent he was keen to use them to rise out of the gutter and become a success. However his kind weren't unheard of and his shadow magic paled in comparison to the other masters of magic and his plans fell short of success. Having seemingly failed to rise up through legitimate means he decided to join the ranks of the criminal class to bring him the status and wealth he felt he deserved. However his schemes get the attention of Ronin and Fox when he targets the mistress of magic Zatanna. With dreams of stardom shot down he is approached by Tiresias who convinces him he makes a better killer than a magician and perhaps he would be wise to consider a career change.
-Shadow Manipulation, the source of his magic power. He can control the shadows of virtually everything around him and uses it to give him an unnatural edge in combat and can kill people in a near traceless manner
-Streetwise, born in the rough parts of town he can navigate his way around the city with ease and matched with his athletic build he can outrun his opponents should the fight not go his way
-Stealth, capable of hiding in the shadows almost like a chameleon blending into it's environment
A glorified thug on first appearances, until he starts choking you without touching you. A tragic villain perhaps but has chosen the easier path out of his poverty and whilst his actions can be understood they cannot be condoned.
Mess with Ronin's lady friend and expect your spleen punctured...by said Lady Friend. This is an excellent character, and tying him to another villain makes him much more complex. This is a man who probably has no qualms, or morals, or any concept of the idea of PERSONAL SPACE. He's also an evil magic user, so he's automatically pissed of Zatanna, the JLD, The Lords of Fate, etc. He is still a challenge, and should not be taken lightly. He also shows how great power can absolutely corrupt a person. In the end, he is just as shadowy as his magic. Awesome job as always!
The Artist thought this was FAIR

Nice to see another homo magi. Umbrakinetics are also nice because I, personally, don't see many of them. They're always extremely dangerous; nobody expects their own shadow to be what kills them.
Oh yeah, I've wanted a shadowmancer since I saw princess and the frog and I have big plans for this guy
I knew it! I knew that's where the Facilier and Lawrence parts came from!
Alas, I did not!
The Boogeyman's real name is Oscar Page, the actor who voiced the boogeyman in NBC is Ken Page and like Oogie Boogie, Oscar tends to sing while tormenting (a bit of a perversion of how Fox beats up his bad guys to a soundtrack)
I think he might be my favorite. Him or Wolf.
