Legacy of Fire
Many believe Father Jackal to be a werejackal, a man who can change into a slavering cur. In fact, the opposite is true: Father Jackal is a jackalwere, a beast that has gained the power to become a man.
Little loyalty to humanity remains in Father Jackal’s soul—he has no memories of life as a man before being saddled with a curse that turns him into beast. He is a beast who has learned to pose as a man, and while he puts on airs of civilization, his true nature is savage.
