Black Company Wiki

Linger was a sorcerer and a member of the Circle of Eighteen mentioned during The Black Company. As a member of the Circle, Linger was the leader of a significant Rebel force warring against the Imperial armies of the Lady and her generals, the Ten Who Were Taken.

Linger is mentioned by name only four times in the annals of Croaker.

Linger, alongside two fellow Circle members Moth and Sidle, joined Harden's massive Rebel army at the Stair of Tear. Amid the fighting at the Stair, the Taken Shapeshifter assassinated both Moth and Linger, and grievously wounded Sidle.

Soulcatcher considered Linger to be part of the "heart" of the Rebel's strength, and she informed Croaker that the order to kill Linger came straight from the Lady.
