Among the stories’ passed around the fire at Sabbat esbats or at the communal haven are the exploits of the Black Hand Shakar known only as the Ebony Fox. Most stories identify the Fox as an Assamite of great skill and tenacity, with a quick wit and clever tongue. These stories typically feature daring escapes, dazzling martial arts and the gruesome details of the killings. The Ebony Fox has become a veritable legend, particularly among the assassin groupies who make collecting the known lore and tidbits about the elusive shaker almost an obsession.
In fact, the Ebony Fox is a creation of the Nosferatu antitribu known as Tarbaby Jack as a piece of Sabbat propaganda. Tarbaby’s greatest success came when the Camarilla Justicar Cock Robin declared a Blood Hunt on the infamous Ebony Fox after the Final Death of his mentor and sire, Petrodon. Needless to say, the Ebony Fox has thus far skillfully eluded all attempts to capture or destroy him. Tarbaby Jack, on the other hand, was recently elevated to dominion, and plans to do the same for the Fox, as soon as he comes up with a sufficiently spectacular story.
