Guardians of Korvosa
Masked Hero of Korvosa
Blackjack is one of the most enduring figures in Korvosan Folklore; a figure in a black cloak and mask, skilled with rapiers and throwing daggers, and capable of feats of unparalleled agility and derring-do. As Blackjack has been active for over two hundred years, few people believe this apparently human figure to be a single person (though some claim him to be an elf, eladrin, or other long-lived race).
Blackjack is known throughout Korvosa as the defender of the poor and downtrodden, striking out in the face of injustice and cruelty. His favored targets are corrupt politicians, cruel nobles, and greedy merchants, but all who wish to take advantage of the people of Korvosa risk tasting his blade… or they did, anyway. Blackjack unexpectedly disappeared ten years ago, with no apparent successor. Some say he was finally killed or captured, while others claim he is merely waiting for the next great injustice to face the city.
