General Information

Physical appearance

Jackson is twelve years old, Caucasian, short and thin with straight brown hair, brown eyes, freckles on his nose and dimples when he smiles.


Jackson has always been a gentlemanly kid who knows that it is easier to be good than to be bad. He tries to be nice to everyone, work hard in school, be cheerful and kind, help people when he can and just be a good person. This has earned Jackson a good reputation and he has always been every parents' dream. Unfortunately, Jackson is often teased by his friends about his reputation, not to mention that this has given him a bad relationship with Rachel. Jackson and Rachel dislike each other because of their opposing personalities and Jackson has always had his sister being in his face and trying to get him into trouble. But Jackson hardly ever let Rachel bother him in the least. But that was before Slappy came into their lives. And after Slappy's control over him, it seems that Jackson's reputation is damaged beyond repair and he feels that his life can never be the same again. And so far, it is unknown if anyone (except for Rachel) discovered what had actually happened to Jackson and if Jackson managed to have his name cleared.


  • Jackson is one of the few protagonists to get controlled by the main antagonist, another being Beth from Horrors of the Black Ring.
