A boorish Irishman running a bookshop in South End
Bernard Black is a recent Irish immigrant. He owns and operates a bookshop called Black Books in South End. Bernard is obnoxious, irreverent, and rude. He doesn’t like people, his job, or much of anything beyond drinking wine, smoking cigarettes, and reading books. He LOVES books.
He has been known to close up shop (rudely expelling the customers) just because he doesn’t want any distractions while he reads classic novels and drinks wine.
He is never awake before noon if he can help it.
He is good friends with Fran Katzenjammer and is the employer and roommate of Manny Bianco. He frequents Caer Bannog often as he enjoys the Irish “flair” of the place.
