Overview

Sometime in the past, none really know when, a lone nightmare spirit got trapped on the Metaplane of Man. No-one knows how he ended up there, but over time he began adjusting to his surroundings. What at first was inhumane greed and horror began filling a more humane mold. While still prone to mutation and volatile, Pump King Jack is an anomalous middle ground of shadow and man-spirits. His innate thirst to cause and spread terror in his victims has taken a turn, spurred on by his belief that by terrifying people to their very core he's giving their lives meaning. Without sorrow, there is no joy. Without fear, there is no security. Everything must have its opposite and Jack couldn't be happier to be the boogeyman that the Sixth World should check for under their beds before going to sleep. To this end, he's begun eyeing Halloweeners for adoption as his personal pupils in the art of fear. Jack's end game is to create a never-ending all year long Halloween across the entire planet where fear is something to be celebrated and terror will only fuel the joy of everyday life.

What could possibly go wrong?

Aspects Description

Aspect Description
Astral Taint Having Jack personally help with anything will taint your character's aura for the remainder of the run and make other spirits wary of you. This usually extends to Awakened NPCs as well; madmen and shadow cultists are exempt from this.
No Mercy Despite his jovial nature and redefined perspective on metahumanity, Jack is still at his core a shadow spirit and feels little empathy or remorse, choosing to concentrate on his own goals. He'll refuse to do any contact services at all, regardless of reason, if you're less than even in chips with him. Even or positive chips will remedy this!
Fearmonger When it comes to getting people so scared they'll tell you anything, this guy has it on lock. Need ideas? Get in touch.
Herald of Halloween He hasn't been in the physical realm long, but Jack's taken a liking to the Halloweeners. He's done his homework and knows a fair bit about them.
Spirit Specialist Anything related to spirits, he can probably give you a heads-up. Hell, he might even know one if you need a hand.
Neighborhood Nightmare To those that promise to be nice, Jack can provide reinforced and hard to find, although dangerous safehouses as Low lifestyles for runners in Sophocles. Dangerous Area, Safehouse, Haunted, Rough Neighborhood, Extra Secure and Difficult to Find are lifestyle qualities that will always be connected to it.
Disappearing Act Need someone to vanish? Jack can take living captives and make sure they don't cause trouble ever again by drafting them into his personal Halloweener sect. Admittedly, this will make them wish they had been slotted.
Mean Medicine If you're desperate for medical care, Jack's managed to establish a relatively stable field hospital. While astrally it's the closest thing to Hell, his crew knows how to perform surgery and first aid competently. His hospital is also the most accessible in all of Sophocles for the time being.
