Real Name: Blackwood X
Apparent Age: Late 30's
Concept: Grumpy Nos Elder
Blackwood’s mask projects a man in his mid 30’s; shaven bald, a slight bulge in his belly and a nondescript round face. He is almost always seen wearing jeans, a dress shirt, black trench coat, a cane, black fedora and a carry on luggage case. While not unkempt, there is always a “frumpy” look about him.
Underneath his mask is quite different. Blackwood looks like a 75 lbs. dehydrated corpse with leathery skin drawn tightly over wiry muscle and bone. Sunken in solid black eyes, overgrown angular bone structure and porcupine quills for hair are seen when he decides to let others view his true appearance.

"Yeah... Coteries get killed. Consider me a consultant that helps with field work from time to time."
What enemies Blackwood has had in the past have a tendancy to... disappear.
