Enrico Balazar

Enrico Balazar is a New York criminal kingpin first introduced in The Drawing of the Three. He manages a club called “The Leaning Tower” and has a fascination with building houses of cards on his desk. Among his actions in the series are: kidnapping Eddie Dean’s older brother, Henry (who in turn overdoses on heroin before he can be saved), running over Jake with his car and killing him for the first time, and hiring out his musclemen to the Sombra Corporation. Enrico is killed by Eddie and Roland in Dark Tower II, but a parallel-earth version of him is alive and mentioned in books VI and VII.
