Korvosa, City of Fangs
Blackjack is Korvosa’s most infamous hero, scoundrel, and champion of the people. Cloaked in his distinctive black mask, garments, and cloak, Blackjack has fought injustice and righted wrongs in Korvosa for over 300 years, battling everything from petty thieves to crooked merchants to corrupt city officials.
Rumor states that Blackjack is not a single individual, but rather a title and/or role passed down to successive heroes. However, since no one has ever seen the person beneath the mask, no one can say for certain.
Always a popular topic in Korvosa taverns, drunken whispers of Blackjack’s latest supposed escapades are commonplace, each more daring and unbelievable than the last. However, these unsubstantiated rumors aside, no one seems to remember the last time Blackjack made an actual public appearance, causing some to worry that Korvosa’s legendary hero has become just that: a legend, never to appear again.
