Ginger's curiosity about the hooded figure is he is a being working for a great deity (unknown)that consumes other to steal their abilities. This hooded figure grants people with powers from the deity and as time passes the powers grows as the host learn to use it. Then later he returns to consume the host gaining the full potential of the power. This is because it takes a long time to progress so many powers. The being plans to let separate host grow the power unknowing they will be consumed later. Ginger fears Chris life is in grave danger and the deity will wreck havoc on the world, but hesitates to tell until she figures it out.
