QUACO or Kwakú, the Akan name given to a male born on a Wednesday is a powerful Obeahman, or Shaman (sorcerer). Like his brother, CUDJOE, he is immortal. Born among the Maroons of Jamaica, Quaco ruled over the Cockpit Country alongside his brother Cudjoe.
As the feared Obeahman, Quaco used his powers of Obeah (malevolent sorcery; black magic) to ward off their enemies and to protect their freedom. His powers allow him to control both the living and the dead. As a master of Obeah, he has the ability to raise the dead, giving life to zombies. When choosing his victim to do his bidding, he always selects the bad man with the most vicious qualities.
“Quaco no longer exists. You will all come to know and fear me as Shadowcatcher!”
Through Obeah, Quaco can steal a person’s shadow and use it to cause great harm or even death. He can also shapeshift, changing his physical appearance at will, from human to animal. He has been known to mimic mythical creatures, assuming a form of different animal parts to make himself grotesque in appearance.
