The Deal with "Death"Edit
Several months after Alfie's death, Noire visits him, having felt that his soul was exerting quite a large amount of negative energy. Seeing an opportunity, Noire exposes himself to the boy's soul and makes an agreement with him, offering him a new life, with abilities no ordinary human can have. Alfie agrees, of course.
Noire warns the boy of the powers he is about to recieve, telling him that he cannot use them against souls not affiliated with his murder.
Noire's True IdentityEdit
In the third book of the series, Damien forcefully revealed Noire's true identity when the spirit intruded into his subconscious. He is actually Gerard Royale, Alfie Royale's biological father who had become Noire even before he had "died" in their mansion's fire.
