"Substitute Hero" - When a world is in need and the Hero is not available Jack will get pulled in as a Substitute Hero to set the balance. This is passed on from the males in his family.
Personality Quirks, Interests, and GoalsWhile usually friendly and practical, Jack has a great desire of being normal rather than attracting attention to himself, usually acting as the straight man. As a result, he has the tendency to avoid situations that will disrupt his ordinary life. Unfortunately, due to his lineage, he is forced into resolving a Heroine's story much to his chagrin. Nevertheless, while he can be sometimes reluctant in being involved, Jack has a strong sense of justice and responsibility, becoming determined to save a Heroine after learning of their situations even at the risk of his life. However, since he is a normal human being, Jack can be quite creative using various elements from each Heroine's story to resolve their respective conflicts.
However, because of his involvement, the Heroines usually become devoted towards him, but due to his dense and passive attitude, Jack typically ignores their advances. As such, he can become stressed, annoyed or even frightened by the Heroine's competitive nature for his affection.
Powers, Skills, and StrengthsDue to his Bloodline, at the age of Eighteen, Jack began to become involved in stories that required a Hero to resolve the Heroine's situation until he can make an heir. As such, he has the tendency to encounter aliens, magic, psychics, time travelers and other strange phenomenons from fiction, even at the same time. However, because he is a normal human being, Jack does not possess any outstanding abilities or special skills. Thus, he has the option of abandoning the stories at the cost of an unfortunate ending. Therefore, Jack is forced to become creative by various elements from each story through his lineage to form a strategy to resolve various conflicts. Additionally, once Jack becomes the Hero of a story, he gains access to certain weapons and abilities.
An unfortunate side effect of his bloodline is that innocent bystanders can also become involved in the stories that he participates within, potentially causing them harm.
Red Thread - A magical ring made of red threads that can connect people. While holding the Thread, one can make a wish to meet the other person, even across dimensions. He received it from Larissa so they can find each other at all times regardless of time and space.
Weaknesses, Flaws, and LimitationsHe has no real powers and is just a human.
Because of his involvement, the Heroines usually become devoted towards him, but due to his dense and passive attitude, Jack typically ignores their advances. As such, he can become stressed, annoyed or even frightened by the Heroine's competitive nature for his affection.
BackstoryJack is a high school graduate who inherits his family's birthright after his eighteenth birthday, becoming involved in multiple stories where he must become the hero to save the heroine. While a great number of heroines fall in love with him, due to his indecisiveness, Jack eventually becomes the cause for the "War of Everything", a inter-dimensional competition for him in the far future. He is his own worst enemy.
