Black Knight (Marvel)(01 - Sir Percy)
Real Name: Sir Percy of Scandia
Search for 'Black Knight (Marvel)(01 - Sir Percy)' on Amazon

None. As a spirit, Sir Percy could be summoned by his descendent lighting a fire within the Brazier of Truth, after which often possessed some oracular insight.

The Black Knight was a master of swordsmanship, horseback riding, and of all forms of combat known to 6th Century Britain.

As the Black Knight, Sir Percy wore a full suit of chain mail armor for protection and carried the magical Ebony Blade. The sword, forged with magic from metal found in a mysterious meteorite, appears virtually invulnerable and able to cut through almost any material. In addition, magical spells enchant the blade, allowing it to dispel other magical barriers, attacks, and enchantments, as well as deflecting, absorbing, and re-directing other energies. He could summon the blade to his hand if separated, and even if it were out of line-of-sight. The Ebony Blade contained at least two known mystic properties. First, any enemy that touched the blade was subject to great pain. Second, Sir Percy was protected from death so long as he held the blade, although he would still be vulnerable from an attack using a weapon of similar material to the Ebony Blade. (It appears that Sir Percy was immune from the blood-curse of the Blade that affected Dane Whitman and Sean Dolan.)

His steed Thunder.

Sir Percy of Scandia was born at the castle of King Arthur Pendragon in England during the first years of Arthurís reign in the sixth century. Sir Percy adopted the guise of the Black Knight in order to serve his king in a dual capacity: One, an unassuming man of the royal court, and the other, a mysterious avenging champion. King Arthur's court magician, Merlin, gave Percy the Ebony Blade after enchanting it himself.

As the Black Knight, Sir Percy's greatest foe was King Arturís nephew Mordred. For years, Percy tried to gather evidence of Mordred's treachery, to no avail. Soon after the fall of Camelot, the wounded Mordred dispatched his men to ambush the Black Knight using a dagger constructed of the same meteoric ore as the Ebony Blade. Sir Percy was slain, but Merlin, however, cast a spell upon Percy's spirit, enabling it to return to the earthly plane when the spirit of Mordred threatened the world again.

Percy's spirit was also able to return by means of a magical brazier. It returned to offer the Ebony Blade to his descendants, but only one, Dane Whitman, proved a worthy heir to the magic sword. Dane would occasionally consult the brazier for advice, such as when he needed to find where the Ebony Blade had become lost in time, finding it finally in Olympus. Years later, when Dane Whitman had fallen victim to the Blade's curse, the sorcerer supreme, Doctor Strange, appealed to Sir Percy's spirit, allowing it to reside in the blade, thinking this would end the curse. The effort freed Dane from his affliction, but the curse remained, later affecting Dane's squire Sean Dolan, who became Bloodwraith. The final resting place of Percy's spirit remains a mystery.
