Jack Wolfrick is a recurring character in Oblivion 1 and 5. And a main character in Oblivion 2, 3, 4 and 6.
Jack was born the eldest son of Alan and Laura Wolfrick, in 2646 AS. Having a stable enough upbringing, young Jack is a typical kid even though through most of his early life his farther was not around due to serving in the imperial army. When Jack was nine, Laura Wolfrick died. Leaving Jack and his brothers effectively orphaned and in the care of the house butler, Vernon. Until Alan returned to take charge of his company.
Jack has three younger brothers; Dave, Nick and Martin. And is thirteen-years-old when Dmitri arrives at the manor.
On the day that Geoffrey Randall and Derrick Jacobs went to inform his father about the theft at one of the company storage units. Jack was outside in the family graveyard, sitting in front of the tombstone of his mother, in an attempt to escape his younger brothers and his father's attention.
Despite this, he still uses his brothers for his own ends, including sending Dave to go and investigate, Dmitri Jones, who had just come to the manor was. Although his younger brothers warm to the outlaw captain, Jack initially doesn't, getting angry when Dmitri prods into his fraught relationship between Alan and his eldest son.
After he mistakingly believes the manor to be empty he sneaks into the cave, discovering and unlocking Gerrard's computer, leading Alan and Dmitri to find out about Brydon Briggs. Although Alan attempts to scold Jack for his sneaking around behind his back. This doesn't go down well with the teenager accusing Alan of keeping him in the dark and treating him like a child, whilst also failing to notice how Jack was taking much of the flax off his younger brothers whenever Alan did anything reckless.
Jack was also present when Vernon received the distress call from Deryn and wanted to be taken along on the rescue mission, but was refused by both the butler and his farther, who insisted that he didn't go on the mission sighting its danger as the reason.
Jack spends most of the time on the computer trying to find out information on the group called 'The Answer' with him finding a location to one of there public buildings. Although with little success.
When Patrick McDonald is taken prisoner by Dmitri after failing to kidnap Dave. Jack agrees to cause a diversion, so that his younger brother can interrogate his would-be kidnapper. This act informs the group of the trap that Dmitri is running into after interrogating Patrick himself. With Charlie and unbeknownst to her, Jack, going on a rescue mission, which succeeds. although Dmitri's mission was a failure as he failed to save those who were being held in the warehouse. With the three returning to the manor mentally scarred over what they had witnessed, with Mia, the only survivor agreeing to come with them.
However this new bond between the two eldest Wolfrick brothers quickly unravels when Jack agrees to lock Dave, along with the newly arrived Mia inside with Patrick. Only undoing the computer lock after Vernon instructs him to, although it is too late to save Patrick who had been stabbed to death by Dave after provoking the boy.
During the planning of the raid on Boris' Castle both Jack and his younger brother Dave demand to be able to go on the mission, although entirely for different reasons. This is eventually agreed upon, after Alan okay's it. With Jack being dropped in alongside Dmitri, Charlie and Brydon. Jack is charged with getting to the main data storage point to access as much information as possible. When the mission goes south Jack escapes with Charlie, not knowing if his younger brother got out in time before the gates closed and trapped most of the strike force inside to be slaughtered. Now on the run, Charlie and jack manage to survive The Iron Company, who patrolled, cutting down stragglers as they attempted to flee, eventually arriving back at the camp with the intel in hand, this being the only part of the mission that succeeded.
During the attack on the manor, Jack saves Dmitri Jones life by shooting a raider who was about to kill him whilst he was on the ground. After helping in driving back the attackers, he walks out with Alan who praises him for his actions during the attack. However, when Jack notices one of the captives raising his weapon he calls out. Charlie then forces the attackers aim off, saving Alan's life, but the weapon was still fired and the bullet instead ends up hitting Jack in the right eye, destroying his eye instantly. Jack was then out cold for the next five days.
During his time under, Jack was visited by Xyla, The God of the Dawn, who is able to save his mind, and prevent further damage. But in exchange for this help, the god forces Jack to see into The unknown Lands, effectively making him spy on the enemy for her, much against his protests.
After waking up Jack's memory is damaged and has a hard time remembering more recent events of his life, including any knowledge of Charlie, and the death of his mother. This last faded memory causes problems for Alan, as Jack had not reacted well to the death the first time round, and he was in no hurry to repeat the experience.
For the next few weeks, Jack is tested by Charlie, to find out what damage had been inflicted to his mind when he was shot. Whilst he also becomes more depressed, as he now has to live with his injury, as well as being reminded of it due to the cloth that was wrapped around his now empty right eye socket. He looses the ability to judge distances and his focus range is also declared off by Charlie.
When Alan, spurred on by Charlie, eventually gains the courage to tell Jack about what happened to his mother. He takes it a lot better than he could have hoped for. Although Jack adds that he doesn't think he will be fine with what happened to his mother.
After a while, his memories do return, although when he asked Xyla if she could give him his eye back, he was refused, with the god stating that she did not have that power.
After the attack on Wolfrick Manor, Jack becomes more withdrawn, choosing to spend as much time as possible inside the safety of the Manor. And on his fifteenth birthday, Jack is given a car by Vernon, much to Alan's discomfort as Jack's eyesight problems make it difficult to drive.
This joy is overshadowed however, when his father leaves the manor on what most believe as an act of madness. This act forces Jack to step up a lot more when he is forced by Vernon to go and be the figure head at Wolfrick Co in his fathers absence. However he is initially rebuffed by the old guard in the company, who insult him about him being a cripple. Although Jack gets one up on them by threatening to expose the companies links to the organisation known as The Answer.
When a strange mist descends on the imperial territories and his younger brother Nick is kidnapped by the forces of Lord Boris, Jack is drafted in by Vernon to locate him, although Jack does loose his temper with both Vernon and Dave over their grudge hindering what little chance they have to find Nick alive.
During one of the many incidents at his school revolving around Dave and a local bully, Howard Godfrey. Jack intervenes and both scares Howard by showing him his ruined eye socket and threatens the bully, stating that if he continues picking on Dave then he would kill him. This only seemed to antagonise Howard however, as the bully insults both of jack's parents resulting in a fight breaking out and results in all three being suspended.
When Charlie starts a revolution in the entrance hall of Wolfrick Co HQ. Jack along with half the city are declared undesirables by The Mayor, effectively outlawing them. When both Dmitri and Codsworth return to the manor, both having also been outlawed. The group capture Alden IronEye and interrogate him. The mercenary reveals the death of Lord Boris, and threaten the group to let him leave or their would be consequences. This threat is ignored and Jack is taken by what remains of The Iron Company and held hostage for their commanders safe return.
After Codsworth and Dmitri return The IronEye to his group in order to save Jack's life, the group return to the manor, and despite being kidnapped by them an hour before. Jack informs Vernon that the mercenaries are to say, after the old butler informs him that he is in charge of the manor's defences, and the group make their preparations to face The Shadow.
As The Iron Company, and a few rebel imperials come to the manor to join the defence of the living against The Shadow and its minions, Jack is consoles by Dave and Vernon after he doubts his own ability to lead. And stands by Martin when his little brother tries to stop the mercenaries from cutting down a tree that their mother had planted before her death. When Alan returns from his quest for The Water Gem. Jack initially refuses to talk to him, still angry over the shit his father had left him in. However, the two eventually do talk in the cave where Jack lays out all his grievances out and Alan apologies for his actions over the past few years.
During the attack Jack, along with his brothers stayed out of the major battle and remained inside the manor, only to be almost burnt alive when The Shadow, angered at the defeat of his first wave, sent a ball of fire which set the manor ablaze. Although the four siblings were able to get out, they were too late to assist Alan in his last stand, which cost their father his life.
After Xyla forces The Shadow away from his home, Jack becomes angry with the god after she refuses to revive Alan, before taking out his anger on Dmitri after Xyla leaves the scene.
Jack has to grow up a lot after the death of Alan, however during the evacuation he stubbornly demands that they bury Alan's body. Only relenting once Codsworth tells him that they need leave, as they wouldn't survive another attack. He along with the other survivors escape the rapidly crumbling manor.
After crash landing in Bartazar. The survivors meet up with Brutus who agrees to escort them to the mountain gates, even though Jack was initially skeptical of him. During there stay with the Were-Bear. They are joined by Abi Rockwood and Bruce Reynolds. During the mountain crossing Jack wittiness a mountain wolf maul Dmitri which leads to Dmitri loosing his leg after seeing this Jack makes the same remark that Dmitri did to him after loosing his eye, which leads to Dmitri smiling for the first time since the fall of the manor.
When the group arrive in the small town of Bergskort at the end of the mountain pass, they agree to work there during the winter for the promise of food and shelter. Jack takes a role in the town guard and starts adapting to there customs including wearing war paint and learning how to use melee weapons as well as ranged. During the winter Jack falls for Erika Hjort, a girl from the town and, after being egged on by his younger brother Nick (who was drunk). Jack and Erika have sex.
Things for the group become complicated once Brutus arrives in the spring, when a townsman gets into a fight with Brutus over the latter being a Were-Bear. This leads to the townsman's death. After this the group decide to leave however before they can. The town leader declares that one of the group must remain to replace the man they lost. Before Dmitri can nominate himself, Jack declares that he will remain behind. Both Dmitri and Vernon try to convince Jack to stay with the group but Jack refuses by stating that he has to stay.
Jack's daughter is born a few months after the group leaves and Jack marries Erika. However his joy does not last long as, after extracting information from Martin Wolfrick, Bergskort is attacked by zombies lead by two of The Ravens, which lead to the death's of both Erika and their daughter. With Jack being the only person to escape the town. Jack then travels north to the mountain.
Jack turns up at the mountain about halfway through, however he is no longer the youngster he used to be, the seventeen year old is more worn and tired looking. Things are further complicated when he initially refuses to tell the group what happened after they left Bergskort. That night Vernon comes to him and guess' correctly what happened. When Jack asks how he knows, Vernon responses that he had seen the same look in Alan's eyes after Laura Wolfrick died. And Jack tells Vernon what happened. The following day Jack inquires about Dmitri and he learns about his death, which further depress' Jack.
Vernon convinces the rest of the group not to ask Jack any questions about what happened and allow him space. However this advice does not sit well with Nick. One night Nick follows Jack as he leaves the mountain and goes out into the valley bellow, where he finds him burying a wristband in the dirt. Nick then confronts his older brother about what happened. Jack is at first reluctant and angry but after Nick asks him about Erika, Jack breaks down and tells his brother what happened. Nick convinces him to tell the rest of the group.
Later on in the year as Martin Wolfrick's visions become more frequent. Jack takes his younger brother to 'The Sanctuary Of Aevilok' one of the few places in the world where they could speak to the dead, in order to get answers. After this mission, Jack agrees to tell the group exactly what happened between when the group they left Bergskort and Jack's arrival at the mountain.
Using the information Jack provided, along with Martin's most recent trip into the void, they convince King Fierhand (VI) to act. With the king ordering his army to prepare for war, Jack leaves the group once more to retrieve the wristband he buried and then heads off to rally the mountain-men to the cause. During his travels, Jack arrives at the northern city of Bredon, where he encounters an old man named Tore who knows a lot about him. He also clashes with the towns governor and right hand man after they claim that he is not one of them. But they agree to help after jack completes a task for them, and seeing no other choice, Jack agrees to the terms, and heads out into the mountains.
After Jack finds his object, his investigations of the ruin lead him to encounter a troll den, where their leader agrees to speak with him. Although communications are difficult as neither speaks the other's language, leading Jack to have to draw his messages to the troll leader and hope for the best.
