Count was a thug working for Krage, a prominent gangster in the Buskin, the most downtrodden slum of the city of Juniper, during Shadows Linger. Count was a physically massive man and was Krage's most intimidating enforcer. One of Krage's victims, Marron Shed, noted Count for his "big brown cow eyes" and knew that Count would not torment him for fun, unlike Krage's other enforcers.

Shadows Linger[]

Count accompanied his counterpart, Red, and their boss Krage to confront Marron Shed at the Iron Lily to extort money from him. While the thugs roughed up Shed, they found a silver coin on his person. It had been given to him moments earlier by his best customer, Raven, to purchase firewood from Latham. But Krage ignored this and claimed Shed was holding out on him. Raven affirmed Shed's story, and when Red went to strike him, Raven busted his wrist. Krage ordered Count to attack Raven, but the man tumbled over in shock when Raven calmly pulled his infamous trick: a wicked dagger appeared in his hand from seemingly nowhere. Krage left with his men but warned Shed he must pay him.

When Shed went to pay some of his debt to Krage in person, he sought out Count personally because he knew Count would not torment him for fun.

Later, after Raven killed 5 of Krage's other enforcers, he targeted Krage personally and delivered some relatively minor knife wounds. Krage would have been killed had Count not intervened and saved his boss. But Count himself suffered near-fatal wounds. Some time afterward, word got out that Count was actually recovering from the wounds. Upon hearing this, Shed considered that Count was "too damned stupid to die".
