Emancipor Reese is a fictional character in the fantasy series the Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson. He is a minor character in the mainstream plot, but plays a major role in several novellas.
Emancipor "Mancy" Reese or "Mancy the Luckless" is of average height and slight build. He is a white haired, weathered man, in his late 60's or even early 70's. He is prone to fits of drunkenness and depression, mostly brought on by his distasteful, sometimes horrific employment in the services of travelling necromancers Bauchelain and Korbal Broach. He detests his job but must keep it to feed his wife and children. He is married to Subly Reese, a large, loud and abusive woman, so he chose a terrifying and dangerous job that took him far away from her for long periods rather than a safe job close to home.
Mancy was hired in the town of Lamentable Moll by Bauchelain and Korbal Broach, two necromancers with a habit of killing people to experiment on their bodies, raising the dead, and summoning demons. His employers are continuously forced to flee from city to city due to the ongoing 'unexplained disappearance' of citizens in the city. It is Mancy's job to drive their wagon, dispose of the leftover parts and attend to the other mundane duties that accompany being in the employ of two serial killers. To Mancy's often terrified disgust, people always seem content to warn or drive off his employers rather than killing them outright. Since his hire by the necromancer duo, Mancy lives his life in a continuous state of fear and near-panic eased only by his consumption of his employers poppyseed.
