-- Papa Midnite src

Papa Midnite is a powerful Jamaican voodoo priest operating out of Manhattan. He gained his power when he killed his sister, Cedella, and performed magic on her to condemn her to hell. There, he forced her to barter and sleep with demons, to steal secrets and power for him. With this power and connections, he set up a vast criminal magic empire in New York City.

After he sent his old foe John Constantine witchwalking to Hell (or rather, a corner of Hell that he "acquired"), Cedella broke free of her spells. She forced him to take his own life by jumping off the Empire State Building.[1] However, he survived, and went on to expand his empire even more.[2]
