Black Company Wiki

The Old One was the leader of the ruling family of the Voroshk world who was mentioned in Soldiers Live. This mysterious man reigned for many years until he died unexpectedly. His death occurred at roughly the same time the Black Company departed Hsien and entered the glittering plain en masse in Soldiers Live. Croaker learned these limited facts about the Old One from the Unknown Shadows, who spied upon the Voroshk and reported back.

The Old One had presumably sponsored the partnership between the Voroshk and Lisa Daele Bowalk, the forvalaka. His successor – a son called the First Father – and several other descendants would play major roles in the future of the Black Company.
