John and Alice Youngblood were experienced wardens of some renown and they fully expected their children to follow in their footsteps. In fact they did everything in their power to make sure Jack (John Francis Youngblood III) and his gifted younger sister were well trained and prepared to represent the Youngblood family name in the proper manner expected of them. After his mother vanished during a secret mission for the White Council Jack rebelled becoming involved with criminals and shifty supernaturals gaining a reputation as a charismatic rebel wasting his potential and causing no end of trouble.
When Jack was 17 he broke into his father’s vault hoping to impress his first love, Abigail. She objected and tried to talk him out of it but was intrigued by a coin that they found there. She touched the coin and was immediately possessed by a Fallen Angel of the Order of the Blackened Denarius. She struck Jack down and kidnapped his younger sister, Caroline, planning to ritually sacrifice them both. Fortunately, Jack had tripped a magical ward when he broke in the vault that alerted his father. He confronted the Denarian and managed to save his children from damnation with help from his son. Unfortunately, Jack’s father was mortally injured in the conflict and is in a coma leaving Jack to care for his young sister, Caroline. Abigail escaped and is still possessed by the Fallen. Jack swore an oath on his father’s Warden Sword that he would atone for his actions and become a Warden worthy of the Youngblood Legacy while protecting what is left of his family.
