Blades in the Dark
Roric is dead. He was killed by his deputy, Lyssa. She felt the Crows had become weak in allowing the Red Sashes and the Lampblacks an opportunity to thrive in Crow’s Foot, so she stabbed him in while he slept.
The bluecoats found his body and disposed of it once they’d extracted the ghost using an experimental new technology. He remained in high security at Broken Slab Penitentiary. The Perishers freed him in order to sow discord amongst The Crows.
