Jack Blackfriars is an orphan boy who lives with Diana and Matthew Roydon during their time in London and Prague 1590-1591. Caught by Matthew trying to pick his pocket, he is taken into their household by Diana. After their departure from London in 1591, he is looked after by Father Hubbard, who turns him into a vampire when he is dying of the plague.

Discovery of WitchesEdit

While Jack is not mentioned by name in Discovery of Witches, Diana Bishop notes a string of murders being reported in the press as 'vampire' killings.

Shadow of NightEdit

Jack first meets Matthew and Diana when he tries to steal Diana's purse. A young, malnourished and abused orphan living on the street, Diana convinces an initially reluctant Matthew to include Jack in their household as a servant. The boy soon becomes part of their loving family group and comes to reveal a quick, inquisitive mind that notices more than Matthew or Diana may prefer.

The Book of LifeEdit

Jack is brought to New Haven, Connecticut by Father Hubbard. It is revealed that Jack suffers from blood rage, and that his grandsire, Benjamin has manipulated him into committing the vampire murders Diana and others noted in Discovery of Witches in an attempt to create more vampires with blood rage.

Benjamin used Jack's blood rage against him, and abused Jack's love for Matthew by telling him that he would take Jack to Matthew, but first he had to prove he had Matthew's blood. Jack lacked the control to keep his intended children from dying, and Benjamin took the children Jack did manage to make, using them to maintain control of Jack. When Jack tried to leave, Benjamin and his sons killed Jack's daughter, forcing him to watch.

Jack's blood rage is worse than Matthew's, triggered by a far wider range of emotions. With help from Father Hubbard and Gallowglass, Matthew begins teaching Jack to control the rage.
