This article covers the vigilante named Blackjack. For the weapon sometimes called a "blackjack", see sap.

Dressed in black and fighting for the poor, Blackjack has stood up for the less fortunate in Korvosa since its inception.[citation needed]

Appearance

Blackjack faces an adversary.

Blackjack appears to be a man dressed in a hooded cloak with black-dyed leather armor. He wields a rapier and dagger proficiently.1

Legend

The figure of Blackjack has created quite a rumored history for itself over the past 200 years. There are stretches that this legendary figure disappears for years, even decades at a time. Yet when the populace needs him, Blackjack is there to help. Is he a member of a race that lives much longer, hiding among the people and waiting until he is needed again? Or is he a string of human men, each a successor of the last?2

Blackjack was a focal point of an exhibit at the Jeggare Museum called Local Legends. This featured several wax replicas of the legendary things and people in the area.3

History

A number of people have held the role of Blackjack over the years, including Raneiro and most recently, Vencarlo Orisini.3
