(Power Line#1 (fb) - BTS) - Emmanuel was a shadow, possessed of superhuman powers, and a member of the Guillermos family, rivals of the Ravenscore family.

(Power Line#1 (fb) - BTS) - Christina Guillermos informed Michael that Emmanuel  was at the front gate.

(Power Line#1 (fb)) - Emmanuel advised Michael that he (Tyler Ravenscore) was there, and Michael instructed Emmanuel to escort Mr. Ravenscore up to the house.

    Tyler advised that their discussion was between them, man to man. Michael countered that this was a family matter and that his family would stay, and Tyler accepted this before noting that Dirk, Tyler's son and the leader of the Ravenscore family, had decided that the Ravenscore-Guillermos feud had gone on centuries too long and that he was there because they wanted to see all the hatred and bitterness done away with. 

    Michael noted that the Raven scores' criminal interest and drug running were still of great concern to his family. When Barbara asked how Tyler expected to get their two families to see eye-to-eye, Tyler told her "By doing away with your family, of course" as he opened a portal allowing numerous powered and/or armed members of the Ravenscore family to enter the Guillermos villa.

    Hitting the alarm on a panel, Michael alerted Emmanuel of the intruders and then blasted a desk back over on top of Tyler, wiping the grin off of his face, but it was too late. Christina, Barbara, and Emmanuel all fell before the Ravenscores. 

CommentsCreated by D.G. Chichester, Margaret Clark, David Ross, and Bob McLeod.

    In case you're not familiar with the Shadowline, here's your primer.

    It seemed likely that Emmanuel had something of a relationship with Barbara Guillermos, as they called out to each other when Emmanuel was shot, but it was not and likely will never be confirmed.
