Unlike other horror hosts, the Man in Black frequently influences events in his stories, acting unnoticed to push events down a previously unexpected patht. The Man in Black, Venus and the Weaver, fellow storytellers / deciders of people's destinies, also interact with one another, colleagues in shaping people's lives with an occasional hint of rivalry between them.
