Of Greek origin, Liza Black was the daughter of Nereo and Doris.
Black was known as a protector of the Mediterranean Sea, and witnessed several Argonauts who sailed from Págasas to Colchis in search of the Golden Fleece. As a result, she decided to become part of pirate Jason's crew. Black sailed in the Argos near Mount Pelion, around the Island of Lemnos, around the Dópes territory, and through the kingdoms of Cícico, Arganto, and Bithynia.
Legend states that her beautiful voice was responsible for the launching of the ship and its success in crossing the Cianeas rocks. In 1719, she acted as a mercenary disguised as a young man. At that time, she decided to join the Howell Davis crew, and began dabbling in piracy. Later, she managed to assemble a squadron that was able to destabilize the British fleet. The British fleet was struggling to maintain its hold in North America and the Caribbean.
After the encounter with Black, the British fleet retreated and only emerged years later in order to help sailors who sailed the rough seas. One sailor was named Bartholomew Roberts (also known as Black Bart), who played as a father figure. He named her Liza Black, and together they orchestrated over four hundred robberies including a large robbery of leather, tobacco, sugar, and £ 50,000 in coins. Well known for her hypnotic singing, Black was later recruited by Black Jack to join his crew in search of the treasure of François l'Olonnais.
