When he adopts the persona of Grimknight, he wears a non-reflective black body suit, black full head mask, and sturdy black boots and gloves.

Background

Diggs Tyler was a private investigator for several years while he worked his way through law school (most private investigators work either for insurance companies or lawyers, so this was a natural match). After graduation be became a prosecutor in the New York County District Attorney's Office http://manhattanda.org/ , where he has served the borough of Manhattan with distinction.

A descendant of Gwynn Ap Nudd, the King of Faeries and the Underworld (also euphemistically called the Summerland), Tyler did not realize his heritage until the fall of Darknight. Unlike the Darknight, Tyler is not an avatar of a Celtic god. He is, however, a faerie by blood and birthright, and he carries several artifacts which once belonged to Darknight.

Personality

Diggs Tyler is friendly, engaging, and fun-loving. While he may come across as a bit of a casanova when dealing with the opposite sex, he is never overbearing or disrespectful. He is the flame, not the moth. His years of working as a private investigator have made him skilled at forming a bond with people he's just met and getting them to open up to him. This has served him well in the District Attorney's Office. As Grimknight, Diggs is far less friendly, using his powerful presence and his skill at reading people to intimidate and interrogate suspected wrongdoers.
