Curse of the Crimson Throne
Devargo Barvassi (Deceased)
Devargo is a tall man with close-cropped black hair, a cold smile, and blue eyes. He accents his black leather armor with a steel spider-shaped shoulder baldric and a thick chain criss-crossing his chest, linked together in the shape of a spider’s web. His signature weapons—gauntlets fixed with blades over the knuckles — glisten with poison. Now and then, spiders clamber over his skin, but he takes no notice.
Known to some as the “King of Spiders,” Devargo runs Eel’s End, a collection of ships that double as a brothel, drug den, and gambling hall. Whispers say that Devargo has the blood of fiends in him, and that he can communicate with spiders telepathically. Devargo earned his moniker well by collecting the secrets of many powerful personages throughout Korvosa and bending them to his influence.
