A Lil Taste Of Backstory:
Before the war, Jack Carson was living a peaceful life on a small family ranch. When the war reached his village, he stayed behind to fight while his wife and kids fled further inland, to stay with other family. After a very successful defense of his village, he tried to check in on his family, only to find that the town they were staying in had been reduced to rubble. The only corpses he found were strangers, but he's still not sure if his family is alive, let alone where they are.

Relationships To Other Characters
He sort of mentored Sykes, then later ended up under his command, and also, they are Very Good Friends. Kinda weird, but they're both insufferably reasonable about it.
Sometimes they clash because of Kell's more acidic personality, but at the end of the day they are both Cares Very Much About Each Other (and John Sykes).
PetraWas there for the Inciting Incident Fight between her and Sykes. Willing to give her a second chance since war's fucked up, but he's Business Apprehensive.
Would throw himself into any danger to protect his precious nerd daughter, who he adopted immediately after meeting her.
Another spontaneous adoption who he would die for. She taught him a bit about healing magic, for which he's eternally grateful.
Thinks she's dead. He didn't know her very well, and is bummed about it primarily on Sykes' behalf. Does not know the Horrible Truth.
