Bosun Evie Higgs, also known as the Black Knight Sergeant, is a former Kinshra sergeant who serves as bosun aboard the Sarim's Revenge. She is the elder sister of Jacob Higgs, whom she has a close relationship with, even transferring to Draynor Village so they could be close to each other. She is knowledgeable about boats, claiming she knows them better than Jacob.
At some point, Jacob was arrested for theft and sent to Port Sarim Jail. When "Iron Link" Jedattacked Port Sarim, he made off with several prisoners, including Jacob. When the captain of the Sarim's Revenge went to tell her of Jacob's fate, she signed up immediately, leaving the captain wondering who had hired who. In doing so however, she deserted from the Kinshra. In order to better hide from her pursuers, she requested the captain provide her with a set of tetsu armour. By the time they finally caught up to Jed, Jacob had already been sold to the khan of Goshima.
After Lookout Ekahi was zombified by Undead Jed on Cyclosis, the crew of the Sarim's Revenge travelled to Tuai Leit, but were attacked by The Harbinger, led by Captain Cora. When Cora demanded Ekahi in exchange for their safety, Evie vocally opposed the idea along with the majority of the crew. In response, The Harbinger opened fire upon the Sarim's Revenge. Evie helped keep the ship afloat, repairing the damage. She demanded they proceed to Goshima, but relented when told the ship could not survive the sea in its current condition. She helped repair the ship then travelled with the crew to Goshima. She stayed near the ship while the captain obtained items necessary to construct a cannon and found a note from Jacob begging Evie to abandon him, assuring her he was safe. She built the cannon and named it Vera, commanding it when the Sarim's Revenge once again confronted The Harbinger. She damaged the enemy ship, allowing the captain to slip in and confront Cora. They travelled back to Goshima and Cora confronted the Khan, ending it once and for all.
Evie has great respect for strength and combat prowess. She fought at the Battle of Lumbridge for Zamorak, and considers using violence against the fishers of Whale's Maw. When travelling through the islands, she shows respect to the acolytes of Seiryu due to their skills in combat. She also considers Commander Akhomet to be a good role model. She has a distrust of gnomes though, considering them to be deceptive, apparently having fallen foul of them before.
She has an appreciation of powerful weaponry and armour, being pleased to receive a set of tetsu equipment. Upon seeing the cyclopes of Cyclosis, she considers how best to weaponise them. She also created Vera, the cannon aboard the Sarim's Revenge.
She is impatient, eager to get with the job at hand. She also has a disdain for places she considers boring.

^Guard Captain Roarkwin, "Impressing the Locals", RuneScape. "She got herself transferred to Draynor to be near her brother, so she could visit him. Those two were thick as thieves...you know, up until her brother was locked up for becoming an actual thief."
^Bosun Higgs, "Impressing the Locals", RuneScape. "And I don't care...captain. I'm still in. Jacob's my little brother and I'm going after him. He may be an idiot, but he's family. Besides, I know boats better than he does. If you get me to him, I'll keep your ship in top condition."
^Guard Captain Roarkwin, "Impressing the Locals", RuneScape. "He used to serve on the crew of a Black Knights vessel, until he was court-martialled for theft and found his new home in our lovely shore-view cell, but he was grabbed in Jed's initial assault."
^Bosun Higgs, "Jed Hunter", RuneScape. "I'm AWOL. If the Kinshra track me down here, they might hold you responsible too."
^Jed, "Jed Hunter", RuneScape. "Ah, sorry to disappoint, my lady, but he's sold already. The khan of Goshima took a shine to him, what can I say? She does like them military types."
^Bosun Higgs, "Impressing the Locals", RuneScape. "I know exactly who you are. I fought in the Battle of Lumbridge too."
^Bosun Higgs, RuneScape. "It's taking everything I've got not to stab their eyes out."
^Bosun Higgs, RuneScape. "You gotta respect these dragon monks. They are crazy good fighters. Shame they're all a bunch of utter lunatics."
^Bosun Higgs, RuneScape. "Have you met the Commander yet? She's fricking awesome! If the Black Knights had leaders like her, those White Knight fools would fall over themselves trying to be first to surrender."
^Bosun Higgs, RuneScape. "Watch out for thoose gnomes, though. They look a cheerful sort, but they'll stab you in the back when it's turned.[...]Not until I get to know you a whole lot better. That's a tale I prefer to keep to myself."
