Lightsaberboy on IMDb posed this question and it got me thinking too;
what was the mark of Cain called before Cain?
When he wasn’t the original bearer of the mark. God entrusted the mark to Lucifer so why wasn’t it called The Mark of LUCIFER? Since according to the story as told by Death in Brothers Keeper 10 x 23 that God passed the mark onto Lucifer and then he passed it on to Cain who passed it on to you. The proverbial finger in the Dyke! Dean Winchester….
“God locked the Darkness away where it could do no harm, and he created a Mark that would serve as both lock and key, which he entrusted to his most valued Lieutenant, Lucifer. But the Mark began to assert its own will, revealed itself as a curse, and began to corrupt. Lucifer became jealous of man. God banished Lucifer to Hell. Lucifer passed the Mark to Cain, who passed the Mark to you, the proverbial finger in the dike.”
– Death, My Brother’s Keeper
Now since Amara has come onto the scene she is also a bearer of the Mark of Cain. Now my question is The darkness is old, a very old pre-biblical force which pre-dates even Lucifer and Cain. So should the mark have been named after Amara. But then when was Amara given the Mark of Cain? Where does she slot into this plot of MoC? Why is Cain’s name first when others have fallen before him?
