Black Alaric has remained alive and the leader of the Libertines since anyone can remember. Some say that he is not the same person and that whenever he dies, another individual steps up to assume the mantle.
To this, it is really helpful Alaric’s appearance. Specifically, the Libertine lord hides the top of his head by keeping the hood of his cloak down, and he also wears a velvet mask covering the lower half of his face (up until the nose) as well.
Black Alaric is the only Libertine that maintains his ship the Maelstrom above land. Nevertheless he is considered to have a portal between his vessel-city and Devil’s Gambit to share his precious time accordingly.
