A Jack Hunter Story

The Story

Bobby met Jack‘s parents when Jack was a boy, first undergoing the changes to become a shapeshifter. Jack’s parents didn’t know what was going on with their boy, only that he wasn’t himself. Bobby prepared a potion to suppress his symptoms, which is why Jack wasn’t able to access his powers until severe psychic trauma broke through the block Bobby had put in place. By happenstance, he encounters Jack again 25 years later during the hunt for the Roseville Ripper, when Jack is helping Brittany and Thomas.

Jack then enlisted Craig‘s aid in interpreting his dreams. Craig didn’t have any answers immediately, but realized Jack’s hidden potential just in time to allow him to fight off the Skinwalker, the monster to come.

Jack stopped at the floral shop and picked up three roses, one for every year. The plan was go out over the weekend but celebrate at home tonight with his wife. As Jack pulled up to the house in his cruiser, he whistled a tunelessly to himself. As he approached the door Jack noted candles lit in the dining room. He opened the door, and dropped the roses. The sickly sweet smell was overwhelming. Drawing his gun, Jack entered the house, treading on the roses. There is blood everywhere and something in the room! Jack Shoots wildly, calling for Katrinka! The thing snarled at Jack and turned towards him. Suddenly Jack lunges knocking the table over and the world shifts. Jack’s mouth closes around the creatures ankle. The taste, like that of ashes and death, makes Jack gag and the creature strikes, pummeling him across the room The creature says several words in Dakota and then is gone.

Wounded Jack flees the scene just as his house goes up in flame. Jack cannot remember ever running so fast, he seemed to fly and the smell recedes. And then Jack realises he is flying! If it were not such a traumatic evening Jack might have enjoyed the feeling. Jack hunts throughout the night finding nothing except that he can now change into a wolf (the biggest damn wolf!) and an eagle (which is small and agile). This would almost be fun if he weren’t chasing a murderer.

Seeking answers Jack is pointed to the Public library at Witch’s Hat Tower. Where he meets Bethany Tempest and through her Donald Morgan. He has asked Bethany for information on Native American Spirits and a translation of what the creature said. She is working on both. In the mean time Donald has referred Jack to see Brittany Winters for assistance with the spirit and general training.

The Story

While working to hunt down a creature the news papers had dubbed “ The Roseville Ripper”, Brittany wrongfully suspected and began tracking Thomas Owens, thinking him behind the grisly murders. Despite having crossed paths with him before the The Ripper’s rise, she insisted he was the culprit, as all evidence pointed to him, until while stalking Thomas – the two of them happened onto the real Ripper. Seeing that she was wrong, she wasted no time in helping Thomas rid the world of a less than savory creature of the night.

Brittney needs a potion of true seeing to help her see the Roseville Ripper’s true form. She knows somebody who leads her to Bobby. Bobby reluctantly makes the potion for her, but he warns Brittany not to engage the skinwalker, as the collateral damage from such a fight could be immense.

The Roseville Ripper
A Thomas Owens Story

The Story

Thomas eventually fought his way out of the Nevernever to find that nearly 70 years had passed since he entered while he had aged less than 5. With the life and world he know long gone, Thomas became something of a “Monster Hunter for Hire”. He is never short of work and slaying supernatural creatures seems to satisfy the Living Iron; it particularly enjoys killing fae of any type.

On several of his hunts, Thomas has crossed paths with a young woman claiming to be “The Slayer”. Despite their differences, they made a very successful team when neither could defeat the Roseville Ripper alone.

The Story

While attempting to track down some nasty form of supernatural beastie (and failing miserably), Brittany crosses paths with Jack Hunter, a police officer who has newly discovered the ability to shapeshift – tracking the same beastie. He teased her about her horrible tracking skills and she pulled his tail (literally!) out of Dodge, when it became apparent he knew nothing about fighting monsters. A deal was struck between them, he’d teach her his Native American tracking methods and she’d teach him to open a “Can of Whoop-Ass” on the creatures of the night.
