Konstentyn is one of John Constantine's ancestors. He was the first of his ancestors to harness the power of fear to increase the strength of his dark magic. With that power he could open a portal to Hell and even bring someone back. He sent many different magical creatures to Hell.


During 55 BC, John Constantine and Neron visited Konstentyn and witnessed the true power that he wielded. While Neron tried to persuade Constantine to open a door to Hell, he revealed that Konstentyn was the first to create the rift between humans and magical creatures.[1]
