Biography[]

In his younger days, Jack was a lazy bum who one day got hold of magic beans after trading them for his cow. The beans grew into a huge beanstalk that led Jack to Skylight, a city of friendly Giants in the clouds. There, he stole a fortune of gold from the giants, and when a giant tried to stop him, Jack killed him by cutting down the beanstalk, causing the giant to fall to his death. The fallilng giant crushed a farm in the village of Bleakhaven, causing loss of lives and huge property damage. It made him a wanted man in the town for crimes of homicide, manslaughter, disturbing the peace, property damage, vandalism, illegal dumping, littering, theft, abandonment, animal cruelty and pretty much everything. Jack kept the gold for himself and abandoned his mother.

Elfo, Bean and Luci first encounter Jack when he is kicked out of the Flying Scepter by Mumbles for mooching drinks of the customers with his tall tales. After Bean offers him a drink, Jack tells them his life story, but in a way that makes him look like a noble, hardworking man who loved his mother. He still has some magic beans and has started a traveling business with them called "Jacks magical mystery tours". Bean is interested to see the world outside Dreamland, and despite the warnings from Elfo and Luci not to trust Jack, she buys some of his magic beans. The beans actually work and sprout a huge beanstalk that bring the three friends to SKylight. There they learn the giants are actually friendly and Jack is a charlatan who robbed the giants. Jack himself is not seen again in the rest of the story.
