The Black is the counterpart to the White, and serves as chief administrator of the Seven Satrapies. The Black takes part in the Spectrum's discussions, but does not vote on their decisions. The Black is usually a non-drafter, though drafters can hold the office. The incumbent Black is Carver Black (it is not clear if that is his actual surname, through strange coincidence, or how his title is rendered.) The formal title of The Black is Luxlord.
