Pickles was the quartermaster of the Black Company prior to the events in Beryl and throughout first chronicle.

The Black Company[]

Pickles made the trip with the rest of the Company aboard the massive Imperial flagship The Dark Wings from Beryl, across the Sea of Torments, to Opal. He maintained the Company's supplies, as well as checking out food rations and equipment to the men. He got on well with Raven, their first recruit from the north, as well as Flick, an elderly Forsberger who was sympathetic to the Rebel. Pickles readily shared Flick's superstitious stories which formed the mindset of the Rebel with Croaker and anyone else who would listen. He was notable for being a good tonk player because of his skill at bluffing. On account of illness, he did not accompany Candy on the fateful supply run to Oar during which Flick was killed and Raven was badly wounded by local thugs working for the Limper's men Lane and Zouad.

Pickles was with the rest of the Company defending the Tower during the Battle of Charm. He and the Captain, Raven's closest confidants, were the only two men to be aware that Raven was planning to flee the empire with Darling, Flick's granddaughter. The quartermaster supplied Raven with some extra rations for his escape. Later, Silent tricked Pickles into revealing this fact.

His fate after the Battle of Charm is not recorded in the Annals. As he is not among the 10 Company survivors of the Battle of the Barrowland about 15 years later, he is presumed deceased.
