The Black Racer is the Source's harbinger of death. With one touch, he can
kill and send them into the Source. He was summoned to Earth by Sgt. Willie
Walker, a Vietnam veteran who was paralyzed and wished to die; the Black Racer
was thereby subconsciously summoned, and when he touched Walker, the paralyzed
man was healed, but became the new Black Racer. Walker now lies in a coma, but
whenever the Black Racer is summoned, he is transformed and performs his
mission, then always returning to his comatose state.
The Black Racer can phase through objects and travel at the speed of light
with his celestial skis (yes, that's right, "celestial skis.).
