Place of Origin:?
Appears in The Dark is Rising, Silver on the Tree

The Black Rider is the most frequently encountered representative of the Dark. Little is known of the origins of this individual, save that he can command the legions of the dark, and that he has the ability to cast magic. He is accompanied by a white rider throughout the final book. The white rider is implied to be of similar rank to the black rider; she is identified as the wife of John Rowland in the climax of Silver on the Tree.
