- Common saying in just about every city in the Seven Army Nation.
Jack, the King in the Shadows
Jack, One-Eyed Jack, King Jack, King Shadow. The little halfling with an eye-patch certainly has many names and an even bigger reputation. If you believe just half the stories attributed to him, he lost his eye when he succeeded in cheating in cards playing against Mask himself, and no matter what happens where, the information always finds it way back to Jack.
In reality... well, things would be no fun, if everyone knew the truth, but Jack runs Laketower and a nation-wide thieves guild, the Short Brothers, usually called the Brothers.
