The black defender is a defender made of black metal. It is similar to a dagger, but held in the off-hand in place of a shield. It requires 10 Attack and 10 Defence to wield. The black defender is dropped by Cyclopes on the top floor of the Warriors' Guild, but only once you have obtained a Steel defender.
The black defender does not count as an "evil" item in Shadow of the Storm despite its colour.
