OverviewModify the text

Creation processModify the text

Fenoglio modeled the Bluejay on Mortimer Folchart, and the character is supposed to be the protector of the strolling players and peasants like the Black Prince. Fenoglio created him in the image of Mo, tall with hair as dark as moleskin and highly skilled with swords and knives. In Inkdeath there is a direct quote to "The Bluejay songs" that Fengolio wrote.

Evolving beyond being a fictional characterModify the text

At the end of Inkspell, the Black Prince gives Mo a mask that they made that they didn't want anymore, because the Adderhead posted a wanted sign that includes whoever turns in the Bluejay gets a reward of Mo's weight in silver and they will immediately get hanged, yet, unfortunately the Adderhead makes no exceptions for fakes, which later led to his imprisonment in the Adderhead's castle.

Mo: "I am not trying to steal them."
Fenoglio: "You snatched them. You're trying to keep them from me. That, my friend, is thievery."
