It is unknown exactly what Jack did in New York until he saved the life of Salvatore Lucania from a hit. Salvatore was a mobster working for Arnold Rothstein, a major player among New York City’s criminal element.
Salvatore Lucania took Jack Valentino under his wing and trained him as a secret protege of sorts. To Mr. Rothstein and any other members of the organization, Mr. Valentino was just another street tough making his living. In time, Mr. Valentino excelled at his field and would eventually work openly as a “fixer” and “bagman” for Mr. Lucania and on occasion Mr. Rothstein himself.
The shake up came with the death of Arnold Rothstein, that led to widespred chaos in the criminal world. Mr. Lucania who suspected that Mr. Valentino actually committed the murder, asked Jack Valentino to leave the city quietly and never return. Loyal to the end, Mr. Valentino left the city and struck out on his own in Chicago.
We acquired him on the freight car that he rode and took him to safe house #3. He sat rather quietly for the two hours that it took for our specialist to finalize a proper approach. When the handler met Mr. Valentino he simply asked him “Do you want to really make a difference?” To which Mr. Valentino replied, “Yes I do, just let me use the washroom.” He has shown no disloyalty since.
In Nightsdeep, Jack took on two different alter-egos. One of them, the Raven was a way to instill hope in the people while searching for a serial killer. The second was called The Black Knight and was a way to allow his brother Viktor to keep being The Raven.
