Black Jack is a medical professional that sells his skills to those that bid highest. He is a figure that is shadowy with hair that is black-and-white and scars that are stitched-up all over his body. Black Jack attends to a wide variety of patients including the common people, presidents/leaders. He asks for very high payments from all his patients. Due to this, he is known to be greedy and has callousness.
Black Jack has a personal code (check here for example: www.playblackjackonline.co.uk). If a patient moves him with the ordeal of their suffering, he cures them for free. He, however, has to establish a patient’s willingness to pay. If he cannot find a mercy appealing story behind the patient, then his charging stands.
Black Jack donates much of the money he makes to charity and it is his happiness when he makes a lot of money out of his patients.
Black Jack always goes everywhere with his ward, Pinoko, which are parasitic twin organs from her sister. He gave the sister an artificial body in the image of a female kid and took the resulting baby to be his own since it deserved a chance at life, according to him. Pinoko is a housekeeper, an assistant in surgical operations, a cook but much more providing moral support and human warmth to Black Jack, who is distant from people.
Pinoko is a fully functional human but cannot grow. She is loving, has the personality of a small kid but she is knowledgeable like an 18 year old.
Black Jack is not only skilled in the medical field but also has fighting skills. He is not violent but he will use force in defend himself and others He prefers to use his fista but in some situations he can use a gun or a scalpel to throw at the attacker
Black Jack is dubbed Tezuka’s alter ego. This is the kind of medic he ever wanted to be. The character Black Jack was created to celebrate Tezuka’s 40th anniversary as a professional manga. It was originally meant to be a miniseries in five parts but was later extended to five years due to the overwhelming audience response and reception.
Black Jack’s mode of dressing and attitude are symbolic: they are meant to remind those who read of the rebellious and witty archetypal pirate who lives out of the realms of modern lifestyle. His scar represents a hero’s flaw. He has a half-white, half-black face which represents not being pure. Black Jack can show great kindness but also brutal cruelty depending on the situation at hand.
Kuro Hazama is the real name of Black Jack. When he was eight years old, his mother and he were injured terribly following an explosion, which explains his scars and appearance. His mother died after losing all four limbs and then drifting into a coma. After that incident, Kuro’s father couldn’t stay; he left him. His body was so torn everywhere, but he was rescued through an operation conducted by Dr. Jotaro Honma
Kuro, who is Black Jack character, got a skin-graft from his best friend and that explains why the left side of his face is darker than the rest of the face. The best friend that gave him a skin-graft is half African. Black Jack refused to go through plastic surgery to correct the skin color and he did this as a respect sign for his half African friend.
