Blackjack is a hero (some would say vigilante) of the people of Stormhelm for more than three hundred years, appearing when the city’s citizens are most in need. He has not been seen in just over a dozen years.
Many argue over who or what Blackjack is – many suggest he is a spirit of one of the country’s founding heroes, given his ability to appear and disappear at will, as well as his apparent immortality. Others suggest that he has some of the blood of dragons, given that he is always masked and wearing black and has been known to exhibit superhuman strength and speed. Another story popular with the people is that Blackjack is not one person, but any man called to action in times of need, given power by the legend itself to do what needs to be done.
No matter what, he is a steady fodder for tales and songs amongst children and in taverns.
