Merlin used the fallen Starstone to create the four magical items: a sword, a shield, and staff and a chalice, then offered Sir Percy of Scandia the pick any one for his own. Sir Percy chose the sword and became the Black Knight, and Merlin cast a spell to destroy the others.

Before Merlin's spell could be completed, Mordred intervened and stole the ebony staff. He used this staff to create the Ebony Dagger, the only weapon that could slay the wielder of the Ebony Sword. Mordred used the weapon to slay Sir Percy.

Centuries later, Mordred gave the dagger to Paul Richarde and sent him to kill Dane Whitman, the latest Black Knight. The dagger was lost in the fight.
