Character Name: Jack Vessalius
Series: Pandora Hearts
Brief Biography: A hundred years ago, Jack had been the third son of the House of Vessalius - at that time, only a third-rate noble house. Having no responsibilities on his shoulders, he merely did what he wanted to do, including but not limited to being Glen Baskerville’s best friend. They created a pocket-watch together: Jack, a self-proclaimed music box maker, crafted the watch, and Glen wrote a melody for it, entitled ‘Lacie.’
Jack also met Alice, a shy and lonely young girl, kept under lock and key in a tower on Baskerville grounds. He visited her often, starting and strengthening a relationship not only with her, but her ‘sister’; a ‘personality’ of Alice’s that he’d learned to discern from the Alice that he had first known. He later learnt that the personality was really Alice’s twin - more widely known as the Will of the Abyss, a supposedly malevolent identity controlling another dimension called the Abyss - and that his best friend was most likely keeping her imprisoned for his own purposes.
On the night of the Tragedy, the Baskervilles slaughtered countless citizens, and the capital was dragged into the Abyss. The whole country would have been dragged in as well, if not for Jack, who killed Glen in order to stop him.
He was hailed as a hero, and the House of Vessalius replaced the Baskervilles in the Four Dukedoms, but Jack - dying of a near-fatal chest wound that Glen had given him in retaliation - would have none of it. Everyone he had cherished was either dead or gone, and the one that he cherished the most was dead by his own hand. Almost as if to atone for killing his best friend, Jack then implored the sorcerers in the aftermath of the Tragedy to use his body as a seal, so that Glen’s consciousness cannot return to a body; this entailed splitting his physical body into five pieces, and his soul into countless fragments.
One hundred years later, he’s drawn to the presence of one of the descendants of his house - Oz Vessalius, who had made a contract with the Black Rabbit, a monstrous rabbit whose human form had his Alice’s face. He’s forged a link with the boy’s mind, and uses him to warn the dukedoms against the impending catastrophe if they do not stop the Baskervilles from seeking out their master.
