"Black Caesar" was a notorious African pirate. He presumably named himself after the legendary emperor Julius Caesar as he was a powerful force, evil enough to be resurrected as an Encore.


The Encores fight over the last piece of the Loom of Fate.

At some point in history, Black Caesar was a successful pirate. Upon his death he went to Hell and his soul was claimed by Astra Logue.[1]

He was sent to 1910 by Lachesis along with several other Encores, all tasked to hunt down the last piece of the Loom of Fate. He was later killed by a bullet from a Hell gun by another Encore, Clyde Barrow.[1]


  • Hell rifle: Upon his resurrection as an Encore, Black Caesar possessed a hell rifle.[1]
  • Hell compass: Upon his resurrection, Black Caesar had a compass with some sort of Hell powers, attempting to use it to find the piece of the Loom of Fate. After Black Caesar was killed by Clyde, Zari Tarazi and John Constantine took the compass to try to get it to lead them to the ring that the Loom fragment was disguised as, but were unsuccessful due to the powerful spell used to hide the ring.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • In the real world, Black Caesar was a legendary African pirate who is believed to have worked with Blackbeard and was executed in 1718; however, there is no historical evidence to support his existence.
  • Black Caesar's hell compass may be a reference to Jack Sparrow's compass in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Said compass could point its bearer to the one thing they want most in the world, as long as the person using it was certain of what it was they wanted at that given time.
