Jo-Jo was a sworn brother of the Black Company. He was mentioned in the Annals during their employment in the Lady's Empire. Before that, he was with the Company in Beryl, and made the trip across the Sea of Torments aboard Soulcatcher's giant galley, The Dark Wings, to Opal.

The Black Company[]

Jo-Jo appeared in the Annals during the Company's time at Meystrikt, the most important fortress in the Salient. The bulk of the Company hunkered down to make it through the arctic winter, and of all the men, only Raven had seen snow before their time at the fortress. Despite the weather, the Captain periodically sent small patrols of Company veterans out of Meystrikt to hunt for the Rebel general Raker. One of these groups, led by Elmo (and including Jo-Jo and the wizard Silent), killed 23 Rebels and came to possess 6 of Raker's head hairs. These hairs would prove invaluable in the creation of a sorcery entrapment of Raker. Jo-Jo got minor frostbite during this patrol, which turned out to be the most serious injury among the whole group. His frostbite was treated by the Company physician Croaker.

Jo-Jo's fate after these events was not recorded in the Annals. 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.
