The Black Prince is the leader of the Motley Folk and the robbers who is extremely good at throwing daggers.
Biography[edit | edit source]
He carried daggers even though strolling players were not really allowed to have weapons. People thought his bear was a Night-Mare or a man under a spell set by the fairies, but the bear was simply grateful to the Black Prince because he'd saved him from his previous owner, who forced him to do tricks for money. After Mortimer Folchart was shot, the Black Prince met Resa in the Secret Camp during Mo's recovery. The Black Prince and his bear were captured, but later freed by Dustfinger, with Farid as a distraction. The Black Prince then helped Dustfinger, Farid, and Meggie Folchart to free the other prisoners. He was once captured by the Adderhead as a prisoner, but Dustfinger set him and others free. The Black Prince was poisoned by Mortola and almost died.
