Black has been molded as a perfect agent of evil. Having long ago made a pact with the Demon Lord Orcus, his original mind and body have long since been overridden. The memories of his former self are gone; all that remains is his mission to prepare the material plane for the rule of its new master.
Great power has been granted to Black to aid him in his mission: power aimed at eradicating the forces of good who would hope to defy their new master. Making use of these powers, Black has developed a cruelty far beyond simple bloodlust. Those who defy him and face his wrath often find themselves wishing that they had simply been killed.
His evil is not without method, however. Black is more than smart enough to know when he can and cannot handle a situation, and is more than willing to “play ball” long enough to put himself at an advantage.
