He refused to perform these capture missions, instead allowing his quarry to escape. When the High Command discovered his deception, he was arrested, court-martialed, and exiled as well. Artorius found himself in the barren, burning lands of Moltania, surrounded by fellow exiles like him. But to his surprise, no one recognized him.
With that, Artorius buried his past as a soldier. Calling himself Jack, he used his knowledge and survival skills to secure and establish a settlement for him and his new people. Jack went on patrols to survey their land, forging alliances with other groups he met. He eventually learned to tame the jackal-life Gaia and is seldom seen without Sparks, a fire-breathing Gaia he has raised.
Never one to sit still for long, Jack quickly coordinated with other settlements, creating and developing a communication network. Moltania grew into an organized and thriving region under his eye. He turned his attention to mining, helping everyone make a living with trade and forging weapons. Part of him cannot forget the past, however, and he has resolved to return and demand justice from the Empire. Or deliver it.
