Spook was a member of the Black Company who joined during the Company's time in Hsien. He got his name due to his green eyes, a trait associated with demons in his home world. In Soldiers Live he accompanied Tobo and a small team back down to the Shadowgate in order to fully seal it. He subsequently stayed behind to guard the gate with Panda Man, and assisted him in building a tiny hamlet nearby, complete with women and livestock. Despite their desirable duties, Panda Man and Spook were pestered every night by the ghostly, inscrutable Nef which were on the other side of the Shadowgate (the glittering plain). He presumably joins up with Suvrin during the Company's march back to Hsien at the end of the Annals.
