Okay, I think- I THINK it’s going to be official that my portrayal of the folklore Jack will be merged with Zero’s character somehow. I still don’t know how, but this is the document that consists of Jack’s backstory based on the different Jack’s tales that I will use for Zero in some way and the notes under cut are the ones that I thought of for Jack.
This is indeed the Jack we love and hate in the many fables and nursery rhymes he’s in. He goes by every other forms of his name for the shits and giggles and to hide his identity from certain tricksters who wished to torture and kill him, but in the end, he is referred to as the Jack, which many entities eventually takes the habit of calling him either Jacky, Jackaboy, and / or Jackass ( which there’s a rumour he was the reason why the word, jackass, exists ). Ask him what his middle name stands for and he will just t-poses at you.
Jack is the amalgam of every single creation that links to / have parallels with him and his original memories ( such as J.ack F.rost from R.ise of the G.uardians, J.ack H.orner from F.ables, etcetera— even fanfictions of him and his amalgamations. ). Meaning that he is every Jacks of those tellings, retellings, and the in between. Every time a new story about him is told, his soul will form a new fragment of an identity based on that Jack, essentially holding “new” memories as gathering more details of his background. He also have the memories of every known folklore and mythological tricksters and he considers himself to be them due to his high narcissism.
( Any aspect of this personality can change anytime— this is just a draft ) : “Jack is a trickster who takes a great delight in pulling pranks on everyone and being a source of joy and entertainment to everyone, especially children, which he is considered to be the Patron God of them, protecting children across the Universe from their abusers and bullies and teaching them trickery that is used for self protection. Despite what a lot of beings say of him as being a truly cold and cruel individual, he does genuinely wish to be friends with everyone as he loves to think of himself as the best one to be around. He just have difficulties seeing how sharp and overbearing his words and thoughts can be to others. Pride can get in his way at times, though he just wants to find the strength to make himself feel loved when no one else does because of who he is as a lazy, strange trickster.”
Jack made a deal with the Devil that if he could outsmart every trickster from folklores and mythologies without getting tricked on once, he would have to give him an immortal body when the bodies he would possess died too quickly because of the extreme coldness his soul held. He succeeded and became the most despised individual in the world with every tricksters and their associates coming after him. Due to this, Jack is always on the run, entering into different universes and worlds, and then leaving after staying there for a short period of time.
Though because Jack wasn’t specific enough on what kind of a body he wanted, the Devil used this fact to get his revenge on him and placed his soul into an immortal human body that was attached with the body parts of the animals that were associated with trickery, making him a monster. Although during the deal, whenever the Devil wasn’t around, Jack would steal powers and memories of certain tricksters by freezing their feet to make their souls frozen and broke the particles out of them that would contain their powers and memories before inhaling them, gaining what he most desired from them. So after Jack showed he could shapeshift from Loki’s soul particles, he left Hell, leaving the Devil in fury at the fact that he was the last victim to be outsmarted by Jack.
Eventually, with Jack holding so many identities from the creations people had told and created after him, to generalize his overall identity, he became better known as the Embodiment of Trickery.
More notes to go over eventually: Jack had gained the ability to warp reality / Created his own universe that is considered to be a paradise for the lost spirits of the children / The Devil eventually saw so much potential in Jack through his remarkable strength and trickery that he wanted him to join in Hell, but remembering how the Devil wouldn’t take him in when he died, Jack made a deal that if the Devil would help and guide him regardless of anything, he would join him for half of a year, hence, Jack had the Devil’s Mark on his arm that would summon the Devil from the portal opening on said body part.

Okay, so this is an important, messy note to keep in mind when it comes to interacting with Zero is regardless of how close your muse are with Zero, there is still a high chance that he will end up hurting them one way or another.
Not only Zero have difficulty understanding how his actions and words may impact others exactly because he IS an eldritch monster designed to create chaos and pain to “ help “ others see the warning signs in what appears friendly, one of the things he represent is how being innocent and unaware will usually bring dangerous situations that could’ve been easily avoided if it weren’t for the lack of experiences and knowledge, but also, he is TOO curious to the point he will do harmful things to fulfil his curiosity, wanting to know what hurts them and how much they are provoked by it.
It can be something small like stomping on your muse’s feet out of no where, to stealing and keeping their most valuable item, to even worst such as betraying them. Also, having to be ordered by the World to these things with threats given can also be a reason why he commits them, but he doesn’t understand why would his actions / words hurt someone and how they do because no matter how much he interacts with humanity, more than any other Arcanists, he is still not a human being.
He will still even consider your muse his friend despite what he had done to them and he’d be genuinely confused and hurt if they react to his presence negatively and / or choose to harm him in return, not connecting your muse’s intentions / reactions with what he had done that would prompt them to have them. It’s something Zero needs A LOT of time and space to fully grasp the concept of sympathy and whatnot.
