History: (Ghost Rider VI#10) - Upon hearing that the demon Lucifer took pleasure in defiling the beliefs of others, Sleepy Hollow, Illinois Sheriff Harry O'Connor knew exactly where Lucifer would be targeting. Traveling with Johnny Blaze to Darryl's home, which sported a gigantic neon sign that said "Repent," Harry told Darryl that the Devil was coming for him and suggested that Darryl pack up the wife and kids and leave town. When Darryl stood there gawking, Harry asked if Darryl understood what he was saying, reminding Darryl that the end times were coming as Darryl had always predicted. Shortly after Darryl had packed up his personal belongings and his family, Darryl told Harry O'Connor that he would stay and fight but Harry reassured Darryl, telling him to leave it to the "wicked folk," as they deserved it after all. Darryl then drove off with his family.
