Black Company Wiki

Edmous Black was a sworn brother of the Black Company who served as Croaker's latest apprentice physician during the Company's stay in Aloe. After the Company was ordered to move to Tally, Black decided to stay in his hometown.

Port of Shadows[]

Croaker recruited Edmous Black from Aloe sometime after the execution of his previous apprentice, Minkus Scudd. Although Black was quick to pick up Croaker's teachings, the main reason that Croaker liked him was that he also had veterinary experience, a skill that Croaker lacked and which had left him overwhelmed by the growing herd of livestock that the Captain had insisted on procuring as the mission in Aloe wore on. When Croaker learned from the Captain that Buzz suspected Black was a spy for the Rebel or Whisper, Croaker fervently hoped that Buzz's suspicions would not turn out to be true; as far as the later Annals indicated, they were not substantiated.

After the Lady's Empire completed its subjugation of the Ghost Country and rooted out the cell of Resurrectionists there, the Company received orders to quell a new Rebel uprising in Tally. Edmous Black informed Croaker that he would remain in Aloe after the Company moved on, but would have been willing to continue working for them if they had stayed.
