Lord Fleck Blackstar, often remembered as "Captain Blackstar", was a miner-turned-soldier who served King Whitson Mariner and became the first Lord of Kingston Citadel. He was the originator of Blackstar's oath.
Massie Burnson recalls the events of the Battle of Ayman Lake and how Fleck Blackstar had risked his life to save King Whitson Mariner. It is revealed that Fleck had been promoted to a lord shortly before the king left Kingston. Whitson had charged Fleck with keeping the coal mine running and building a war burrow for future raptor attacks. Massie and Prince Lander both lamented that Fleck was not with them following Lord Grimble's betrayal.
Fleck's heroism would be remembered many years beyond his time, with Whittle Longtreader and others sharing stories of his deeds with their children. At Cloud Mountain, a statue depicting Fleck alongside King Whitson was the namesake for King Whitson's Garden.
