Immortus is another one of Dark's old acquaintances from the past. Dark used to think of Immortus, as a wise man; but came to think of him as a fool when he heard that he joined Nemesis' ranks. After hearing that he was still one of the good guys, Dark's feelings have seemed to return.
Dawn and Dark's relationship is unclear. Though they seem to have more history together than most people know. This includes Firestormblaze.
