Journeys through Bookland - a new and original plan for reading applied to the world's best literature for children (1922) (14783256495).jpg

Summary

Jack was a character found in several fairy tales and folkoric stories in old Europe. In the colony of Ladybug, Jack became a folk-theological figure to small religious movement. Disconnected from the old ways and believing the stories of Jack, Little Red Riding Hood, and Clever Hans to be true or highly allegorical accounts. Within this movement, Jack is a neutral trickster deity, born as a mortal, who tricked his way into godhood. Despite his neutrality, he is generally seen as an ally of humanity, and is sometimes the only real ally humans have, as the Princess is sometimes depicted as being far to absorbed in her own affairs to notice humanity.

Due to his nature, Jack is constantly 'reused' in stories with completely different contexts and backgrounds, though his true form remains the same in each incarnation.

He is directly based off Jack the Giantslayer, readapted into an alternate-history context where fairy tales became one in the same with religion.

Standard Tactics: Jack is generally pacifistic, though not exactly out of moral reasons. He tends to try to manipulate and trick his enemies rather than fighting them head-on

Notes: In-universe, Jack is a fictional character and not a real figure. His stories were derived from ancient Greek heroes that were re-adapted for the countryside of England, and later refashioned with minor Christian and Nahua elements.
