If you look closely at the altime best antagonist, the Jack of blades we will see he has three masks. The one which he wairs, which if we look at Fable folklore tells us this is his "soul shell" which makes him immortal allowing him to swap from host body repeatably. But when we take a close look at his chest just bellow his crimson cloak we see another two masks. One which appears to be a stiched mouth with a frauning expression, and the second with also a stiched mouth but with a smiling expression. But by what I've found on the web and the two games. There is no mention or explaination of the other two masks. Is it possible that there also "soul shells" for the Jack of Blades? And there still housing his soul keeping him alive, with the possibility of a return in future Fable games? Remeber the Hero of Oakvale only detroyed Jacks' first mask the one vailing his face. The other two retreated back to the Void with Jack's host body, after there first battle in the chamber of fate. Anyone have any feedback on this? Or any explaination on the other two masks?

Ok long post here explaining Jack of Blades, and will hopefully answer the questions regarding our favorite villain. Jack was one of 3 members of the Court. Yes he was the second defeated by William Black but he was not killed, only his human form destroyed. His soul resides in his mask, which was not destroyed. In Fable: The Lost Chapters, our hero, yes, defeats Jack, but yet again the mask was not destroyed. The hero kept it as a trophy. This is why Jack was able to come back. The only way to kill Jack was by destroying the mask, which you were given the choice in the second battle with Jack. Now as to why his mask does this, we don't know. We only know that Jack is from the Void which could point out that he is more of an immortal/demon, since he was no god after all. In hope this answered a few questions.

Birth of William Black
In the days when the people still suffered under The Court's cruelty, a humble blacksmith and his wife had a boy. They named him William Black, and he would become the key to save Albion.
Little is known about William's youth. As a grown man he amazed others with the powers of his mind, by which he was able to protect his village and perform feats not a dozen other men could equal. These acts came to be celebrated as the "Powers of Will".
"Fall of the Court"
William grew obsessed with the Court, determined to find a way to overthrow it. One night, while consulting a mysterious tome, he was suddenly transported from Albion into the Void. There he met Jack, who sat on a throne surrounded by ghastly figures. Jack tried to enslave William with the power of an ornate sword, but William fought back and managed to steal the sword before escaping the netherworld.
Back in Albion the sword spoke to William. It called itself the Sword of Aeons, and it promised to help him defeat the Court, but only if William offered his soul in bondage. With the Sword of Aeons, William set off to find the Court.
William scaled the peak of Ruon, Albion's highest mountain and challenged the Court to combat. The Knight of Blades appeared first, and, wielding the Sword of Aeons, William destroyed him completely.
Next the Jack of Blades appeared. They fiercely stuck at one another until William broke Jack's body. However, unknown to most, Jack was not truly slain, and Jack's soul escaped to the Void and possibly took refuge in his mask.
The Queen of Blades was the last to face William. For weeks their battle raged across Albion. Mountains were raised and valleys were formed by their mighty blows. At last, William slew the Queen and freed the people from their yoke. They acclaimed William, who now took the title Archon, as their king.
The 2 masks are those of his fallen comrades the third is his own!

Letum ur vita
My apologies, I meant lionhead studios, though he also worked with Bioware for mass effect
[quote=...|message:29511688]maby he had three soul shells 2 of them were detroyed (1 in human form the other in a dragon form) and 1 remains and for all i know rose might be with him, if you got the letter from rose u would know and another thing, has anyone noticed the stain glass window in luciens study? Looks ALOT like jack of blades to me but for now its all just a theroy. we will have to find out on our own in fable3.
I asked someone I know who works at Bioware and they also confirmed it.

Bioware confirmed that rose meets with Scythe, not Jack of Blades.

jack of blades does return in a short story and is set after he is actually destroyed so it is possible for his return

I think Jack may have survived in one form or another, no matter what the outcome of the first game was. Now I haven't played the DLC for 2 or 3(?) but I believe that a being as powerful and intelligent as Jack wouldn't let himself be killed so easily. Everyone presumes that throwing the mask into the lava destroyed it, but seeing as it has come from the void it is possible that it merely sank into the lava, instead of being destroyed. If the mask was destroyed by being thrown into the lava, there is clearly something that rises from the lava, which could be Jack's soul escaping to his next back up plan. I understand that the two masks he wears belong to the Queen of Blades and the Knight of Blades, but that doesn't mean he couldn't re-purpose the masks for his own use, but perhaps at a cost, such as it takes hundreds to thousands of years to grow back to his full power, meaning that he hasn't resurfaced in Fable 2 or Fable 3. Just because he hasn't resurfaced in the past few games, doesn't mean he won't in the future. It would be nice to see Lionhead resurrect Jack of Blades, but I also can see them not touching him and moving on too.

Anyone think that perhaps what remained of Jacks soul merged with Teresa keeping her immortal? She isint exactly cuddly and she seems to have possible dark motives especially where the spire is concerned ... guess we find out in the Long Journey

If you read books in fable 2 it says that the hero of oakvale destroyed the mask, so jack of blades will not be coming back
