'Bird's-Eye' Jack is the navigator of the Lady Zay and a banker on Lunar Isle. He is a good friend of Captain Bentley, having known him for over 20 years.[1] He is also friends with Cyrisus.[2] He occasionally has nightmares involving tinderboxes and cheese, after the ship was previously jinxed.[3]

When the crew originally arrived at Lunar Isle, the pirates were invited to a feast, where they got drunk and offended the Moon Clan to the point where the Cabin boy was coerced into jinxing the ship into sailing in circles. A stowaway, investigating the sailing mishap, accused Jack of being bad at his job, greatly annoying Jack.[4]

He eventually parted ways with Captain Bentley and his crew to take a job as a banker on Lunar Isle, wanting a more honest life.[5] He reluctantly allowed the stowaway who had insulted him access to Cyrisus's bank account in order to help Cyrisus, giving them a chest to carry the items in. The stowaway later returned, informing Jack that Cyrisus had died defending them against Lucien.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • One of the reasons the player gives for Jack's abysmal navigating skills is "wrong type of waves". This is a reference to "the wrong type of snow" reasoning given by British Rail in 1991 after a snow storm ground the trains to a halt, which has since become a byline for poor excuses.
