Darnell Caldecott is the great-grandson of the immortal former-criminal Richard Swift, better known as the Shade.

Caldecott was active in the mid-20th Century, having been born in United Kingdom but moving to the United States sometime before World War II.

Caldecott was known as a nationalist, a celebrity of both countries, and therefore was a target by Nazi enemies who wanted him dead. His wife at the time Grace Caldecott faked her own kidnapping in order to allow the Nazis to kill her husband and in turn inherit his fortune. With the help of the Vigilante and Madam Fatal, the Shade uncovered the plot and saved Caldecott from certain death, introducing himself as the man's great-grandfather.[1]
