"I am the messenger of truth for the Lord hath anointed me with His sacred oils. He hath separated me above all and promised me and my children their rightful place in the new kingdom."
―Deacon Blackfire's sermon[src]
A self-proclaimed deacon, Joseph Blackfire had a long history of tax evasion and other federal offences, selling people several cons until he came to believe his own lie that humanity was fickle and soon to damnation and that he alone was blessed by God Himself.

Blackfire has amassed a cult of Gotham's homeless whom accept his fanatical beliefs that the world's end is nigh and those who accept him will be the ones to survive. He takes part in human abduction and sacrifice, believing the way to achieve immortality is to bathe in human blood.
