Jack the Gnome was a moderately powerful spellcaster who appeared in the novel The Orc King.

History Edit

Jack lived in the Underdark for centuries and was at one time a student of illithids and demons in his search for greater magical knowledge. The illithids in particular taught him to escape the bounds of the corporeal and of the mortal. Apparently, Jack was highly skilled at shape changing. He often took the form of a winged snake (a Jaculi)[1] to carry on his mischief and manipulations of the shamans of the half-orc, half-ogre tribe Clan Karuck, who resided beneath the Spine of the World in the upper reaches of the Underdark.

A century before the war started by Obould, Jack had made some undetailed slight against Lady Alustriel that installed a deep fear in the often arrogant gnome. During the war after spotting the Lady of Silverymoon he pleaded with his host to flee, claiming that she would recognize him and use all her might to destroy him.[2]

Jack the Gnome was slain by Drizzt Do'Urden[3].

Magic items Edit

  • Jack's silk wizard robe is a magical robe that cannot be soiled or dirtied in any way. It was taken from Jack's corpse by Drizzt as loot and given to Catti-brie[4].
