|Featured In||The Reckoners|
He was friends with Jonathan Phaedrus and Tia prior to the formation of the Reckoners. He attempted to form a superhero team alongside Phaedrus, Amala, and Abigail Reed. Along with the others on the team, he would frequently observe Calamity in the sky through a telescope. He eventually succumbed to the corrupting influence of Calamity and turned evil. His subsequent fate is unknown, although it is possible that he is alive since the younger Reckoners know of him.
- Prof notes that Murkwood "always did love those sparking books" when discussing his Epic name. This implies that his codename is a reference to Mirkwood, a forest prominently featured in J.R.R. Tolkien's work, and that Tolkien's Middle-earth stories exist in the alternate universe of the Reckoners.
