powers: Autumn Knight - Jack is empowered to be the mortal agent of the (now defunct) Autumn Sidhe. In this role, he is physically more capable than your average mortal and able to heal more quickly. He holds strong magic in line with the Autumn Court, including earth magic, blood magic, and spirit/death magic. He is able to shapechange at will.
strengths: Martial training - Jack is highly accomplished in hand-to-hand combat, particularly with a specially-crafted scythe (shaped for fighting, rather than farming).

Magical training - While his potential was largely unrealized during his mortal existence, Jack is studied and accomplished with Autumn magic. The magic of change and death, Autumn draws its power from sources that already exist, either within themselves or from other sources. Sacrifice plays a part in the most powerful (generally known as blood magic), although the idea that death is always involved or that the sacrifice must be human is a (some would say slanderous) misconception. As Samhain falls within Autumn’s power, Autumn has power over the spirits and the dead, able to invoke them for information or protection, though they are fiercely opposed to necromancers who wish to bind the dead to their will.
weaknesses: Hoarding - While not truly hoarders, Autumn compulsions prevent Jack from doing anything truly wasteful. Autumn is the time of harvest, of reaping to prepare for winter, and as such they cannot stand wasteful destruction. A creature might be killed out of necessity, but it will always be used as much as is possible, even if all that is possible is burying it to nourish the soil.

Water - Running water grounds autumn magic as thoroughly as it grounds mortal magic.

Obedience - While he has some degree of ability to resist owing to his mortal nature, defying the nature or directives of the Autumn Sidhe can cause Jack’s power to abandon him.
equipment: Numerous magical/enchanted items. Autumn Sidhe are able to take power and store it in objects (generally crystals or other earth-based objects) for later use.

Lost so long to the mantle of power thrust upon him, Jack remembers little of his earthly origins, even his name being lost to him. He does know that he was a farmer, though, a settler in the New World, and that as the seasons went on, the harvest was proving to be disastrous. They had arrived, it turned out, in the midst of a terrible drought, and with the relief supplies from England cut off by war, the little colony was desperate. Jack, though, was the one destined to save the village, and all it cost him was his life.

While the rest of the settlement prayed, Jack went off into the thickest parts of the fields, cleared away a patch of earth, and drew the circle he used to call to the Autumn Court, the Fey of the Harvest, and plead for their mercy. The young Queen that answered demanded his life in return, and when he agreed, seeing no real reason to not die alone and quickly instead of starving with the rest of the colony, she told him what needed to be done, setting him to work. Two pigs needed to be slaughtered under the full moon, out of the eyes of the waking creatures that might halt the ritual. Sigils, marked in their blood, called the sprites of autumn to the village, and the cooked meat of the beasts was scattered in a ring all around the settlement, drawing out a protective ring of the tiny fey. The rune-carved bones were buried outside every home. Once done, Autumn came and claimed its prize.

There was no means, of course, to grow a bountiful crop in the midst of the drought. The Queen, instead, took the colony into the Nevernever to be absorbed among her court, at first as pampered guests, then slowly absorbed as playthings of the Sidhe, some even gaining the power of the Sidhe themselves as they abandoned their unneeded mortality. This done, she came for Jack’s life and found him waiting.

This didn’t, naturally, mean that she would kill him, as he’d expected. That would be far too wasteful. Instead, he became her knight, seeing to her slightest whim. If something in the mortal world threatened her interests or displeased her, he was sent, as all of the other Autumn Knights before him, to kill them, to reap their lives. When nothing displeased her, he was sent to consolidate their power, safeguarding their place among legends and myths. He found himself heir to several legends, though all had been altered by time so that only some sparse facts remained truly accurate. He managed inspire a few of his own, his favorite, of course, written by Washington Irving after he told him the tale over quite an uproarious amount of drinking, though he disliked taking that particular form unless he had to. After all, who liked trying to ride a horse while holding onto your own head?

All went well for this longest-lived of the faerie Knights (Autumn was notoriously unwilling to discard an able servant, unlike the other courts) until the time when the Summer and Winter courts decided that it was time to consolidate the power of the smaller Spring and Autumn courts into themselves. Most of Spring went to Summer, and most of Autumn went to Winter, with the most notable exception being the Autumn Lady and Knight, who insisted that Queen Mab was insane if she thought they were simply going to agree to respectively become a minor courtier to her and, in Jack’s case, die. The Autumn Lady had quite a bit of power squirreled away to draw upon, and Jack himself had allies and favors to call upon among the Wildfae and the Wild Hunt. When Winter came calling to claim them, they made good their promise to fight, and fled with all the sequestered power that they could. They hid on Earth for a good while, tolerated by the Fey because they were, in truth, still useful (whereas Spring, who had been eager to be ‘reborn’ into Summer had been frivolous and troublesome), and because they were not inclined to try to make trouble of themselves. Eventually, with Winter closing in, they went looking for new grounds to gather their power in, finding themselves in this strange land known as the Hub.

RP Sample
Jack is always interested in acquiring new things, be it connections or power. He’s still (mostly) human, and so he still has that craving to be a social creature, but he does have many fey tendencies that can come up at the wrong moments. He’s very good for throwing magic characters at. On his world, the Faerie courts, while not necessarily benevolent, still maintain good ties with the angels, and while they don’t actively seek conflict with them, tend to consider fallen angels and devils difficult to deal with, since they can’t be trusted.
Oh good lord, I don’t know. He’s beholden to the Autumn Lady, so really however much free reign she gives him, I suppose.
