Man in Black
Three riders in black rode from Starfall to execute the Black Sovereign’s will. They were led by a man whose identity remained a mystery to his enemies and called no man or woman his friend. Legend says he was the quickest draw in the Inner Sea and once killed a gunslinger from Nex before the man could even touch his holster. Whatever his purpose, whoever he is, the Man in Black is feared as much by the Technic League he serves as the prey he hunts.

Afterwards, our heroes later learned from Kelvennan Duskwalker, the Man in Black and his remaining rider rejoined the Technic League and traveled east, stopping in Korholm before taking a boat into Lake Encarthan into an unknown destination – though they surmised his ultimate goal was Numeria, as he took with him a prisoner: Malam.
