Black Company Wiki

Billygoat was a sworn brother of the Black Company who appeared in the first chronicle. He was mentioned in the Annals during their employment in the Lady's Empire.

Since no other new recruits besides Raven were accepted into the Company by the time of Billygoat's mention in the Annals, it is certain that Billygoat was present during the group's service to the Syndic of Beryl and that he was born in the southern continent. He also made the trip across the Sea of Torments aboard Soulcatcher's giant galley, The Dark Wings, to Opal.

The Black Company[]

Billygoat was mentioned during the Black Company's first entrance into Forsberg province. He arrived with the Lieutenant, Croaker, and some others outside a village that had been razed by part of the Limper's army. The Lieutenant ordered the sergeant Elmo to investigate, who chose Billygoat, Croaker, Silent, Whitey, Peewee, Raven, and three others to accompany him. Doughbelly brought the group to the forward scouts Longhead and Jolly, and they entered the village, which was strewn with corpses of all ages. Billygoat was present when Raven rescued Darling and Flick from the Limper's men by shooting two of them. The group departed after the Captain de-escalated the confrontation with the Limper's officer Lane.

Billygoat's fate after these events was not recorded; it is unspecified if he participated in the Battle of Charm. However, as he was not among the 10 Black Company survivors of the Battle of the Barrowland many years later, he is presumed to be deceased by the end of The White Rose.
