The Black Messengers (黒使, Koku-shi) are a team of five mercenaries from the Inside, each armed with a different weapon but all wearing top hats and plague doctor masks. Instead of names, they are identified by the Roman numerals I through V.
The Black Messengers all use long melee weapons: number I uses a polearm, number II uses a naginata, number III uses a stylised pole weapon with a huge spiked bludgeon on the end, number IV uses a longsword and number V uses a flail. They have a fearsome reputation and are a powerful group (though they were no match for the Extermination Force).
Notes & Trivia
- The members of the Black Messengers are from Rikuko, one of the leading lawless zones from the Inside.
