Jack was a jester before he had entered the House, and a good one at that. He made commoners and nobles laugh. He had learned many things in his travels and delighted nothing more than making his audience laugh. Many people had come from strange and foreign places to see his tricks, but one day a man came up to him and criticized his performance brutality. This had devastated Jack, he tried for days on end to make the man laugh and take back his remarks to no avail. One night Jack was arrested for slicing the man's throat and carving a grin on his face. The day before his execution a shrouded figure approached him and gave him the key to the dungeon, and as soon as he had came he vanished. But when Jack used the key on the door, it was not the outside he saw, but a room with walls of bronze, filled with many strange and wondrous things. And ever since, Jack has roamed the halls of the House trying his hardest to entertain and amuse its many guest.
