Emmanuel da Costa was the wealthy father of the New Mutant Sunspot. A ruthless and tyrannic businessman, particularly with his own family, he caused a rift between himself and his family, leading to his divorce.

Da Costa was later contacted by the Hellfire Club and became a member of its secret Inner Circle under the alias of White Rook. He was the only person in the Inner Circle without superhuman powers. His performance in that role was almost unnoticed.

He was murdered by the External Gideon. His son Roberto inherited his fortune.
