The mysterious guardian of Lantern Hill dates back to the Revolutionary War in Freedom City. Stories claim that Lantern Jack is the restless spirit of a colonial patriot slain by a British officer when he attempted to warn the people of the city of an attack.
Many times over the past two centuries, people on Lantern Hill have seen a dark, mysterious figure wearing a tri-cornered hat and a long cloak, his face masked in shadow despite his carrying a glowing lantern. The spectral figure only leaves Lantern Hill in times of great crisis or to battle unearthly evils loose in the world. The people on Lantern Hill sleep well knowing an ever-vigilant protector watches over them.
