Jack Skellington is an undead being of pure fear, and the de-facto ruler of Halloween Town. He wanders the realms, scaring and intimidating people as his see's appropriate.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Jack is, as his name implies, a skeleton, with absolutley no flesh at all. His bones are bleach white, and his face is in a permament grin. His eye sockets are generally empty and bleak, but when he gets angry, they glow red. Jack wears a black suit, with a bow tie designed to resemble a bat. He often carries a black cane with a skull head.
Personality[edit | edit source]
By nature, Jack is a trickster. For his own amusement, he teases and haunts people as he wants, surprising and scaring them. However, Jack is by no means a sadist, and is a pacifist in truth. He abhors all forms of violence, and avoids hurting people whenever he can. He also never haunts a person to the point of potentially harming them, and his tricks never have any malevolence behind them.
That said, Jack does have a dark side. While he does not torture people, if he believes someone deserves it, then he will haunt them endlessly, driving them insane as punishment. Jack has a strict sense of morals, that he never deviates from. These morals drive many of his actions.
