Ok guys, so heres a short story i decided to write around the mythical character Spring-heeled jack. Upon the first opening of the Breach, there was a certain gentlemen, from London of origin, who traveled to the Breach as a trader, traveling directly into Malifaux and operating trading roots and making deals with other such traders. On the closing of the Breach, something had changed in him. Perhaps the first signs of the Neverborn, or just some magical accident, he left the Breach a different man, ravaged by magic and madness, possessed by some beast within. As he had entered in a top hat and suit, on his exit they were torn and muddy. Few saw him in this state, and those he did sent officers to find him and worked out what happened, but none returned. Years later in London few people claimed they heard a menacing laugh and saw brief glimpses of a man dressed in a battered black top hat and a tattered suit leaping across rooftops with impossible agility. The people reported these sightings were found days later dead, killed by what seemed to be claws. This menace they named Spring-heeled Jack, due to his amazing ability to leap across rooftops and he was the terror of London.The biggest image they can draw of him is a tall man with a scruffy beard and and a tattered suit and top hat but no shoes. both his toenails and fingernails have grown unnaturally long and they are his primary attack method. He killed many people, he was no assassin it would seem he just killed for the fun of it. On the reopening of the Breach, Jack was drawn to Malifaux like moth to flame. He now plagues the streets of Malifaux, like he did with London, killing anyone unlucky enough to pass by his territory.
