Ri'Zakar is a Khajiit warrior, and the "Pakseech" or head of Blackwood Company in Leyawiin. A formidable warrior who has traveled to all corners of Tamriel, he uses the Hist Sap to transform his mercenaries into lethal berserkers. He and his lieutenants are a great threat to the Fighters Guild.

He will spend all of his time wandering around his private quarters in the Blackwood Company Hall. As these have a key-requiring door, you will never see him. However, you will first hear about him from captured lieutenant Ajum-Kajin when he cracks under interrogation: "Forgive me, my master.... It is Ri'Zikar [sic]! He leads us! And he will have your head. He will kill you all!"

During final quest of the Fighters Guild quest line, you will be able to loot the key to his room from the body of his lieutenant Jeetum-Ze. He will attack you immediately after you open the door, and you will need to loot the key to the basement from his body to progress the quest.

He is equipped with a full set of Blackwood armor and is armed with an enchanted blunt weapon and a leveled claymore or longsword. The bladed weapon may also be enchanted, starting at 25% chance from level 3, rising to 40% at level 6 and 50% at level 9. He also has some spare clothes, a red velvet blouse with a matching garment. He carries the basement key and a small amount of gold.

  • Ri'Zakar also appears in the Jaws of Oblivion card expansion for Legends as the card Blackwood Hoodlum.
  • Ri'Zakar possesses a wealth of dialogue lines. However, these require him to either not be hostile or be located in the main hall area. As he instead spends all his time in his room behind a key-requiring door before the related quest, and is immediately hostile during it, you will never hear them:
"I am Ri'zakar, Pakseech of the Blackwood Company. The Company provides expert jihatt for selected customers. Very discreet."
"Beg pardon. It is a word from the Ta'agra, meaning 'warrior for hire'. In Ta'agra, the word is vaguely disreputable. Such a fighter fights for gold rather than for clan or Mane. Of course, the Blackwood Company is mercenary in the Western sense... a reliable, professional contractor for military services."
"Excuse me. In the Imperial tongue, it means, roughly, 'clan chair' -- the seat of the clan patriarch. In the Company, we use the term to mean 'leader' -- but it carries the sense of wise father, concerned for the welfare of the whole family."
"The Blackwood Company is proud of our beastfolk heritage, and we are solely owned and operated by Khajiit and Argonians. We speak West-fashion for the comfort of our Western clients, but we invest the fierce pride of our ancient races in each of our mercenary contracts."
