Bio: Jack grew up in a fatherless home. He was raised by his mother, watching her work two jobs a day just to support the both of them. As soon as he was old enough, he set out to find himself a part-time job, whatever he needed to do to lighten his mother’s load. Though he helped by earning his share of his family’s income, when the red moon passed, tragedy struck. His mother, his light, became infected. Jack thought that she was merely sick, what with the fever and the hot flashes. He didn’t realize until it was too late that his mother was affected with pyrokinesis. The young man walked home from his part-time job at a restaurant and found the apartment building he and his mother lived in set aflame. Fire marshalls later gave him the news that his mother had in fact been in the apartment during the time of the fire.
With his mother gone, Jack wasn’t sure what he should live for anymore. Feeling the weight of the economy pressing down on his shoulders, he climbed up the stairs of his workplace with the intention of jumping off the roof. If it hadn’t been for Ella, who was newly assigned as his Carer, Jack would have surely jumped that day. She had to use all of her will to resist the effects Jack’s abilities were having on her, walking up onto the ledge to talk him down. Since then, Ella’s been his new motivation. He’s completely changed his attitude, working twice as hard to keep his abilities controlled while he waits to receive his treatment. It’s been several months since he last had a bad reaction to a stimulus.
