Jack Grassha – A Duelist with Confidence and Power
Jack is an aggressive Duelist who believes his own strength can prevail against any challenger. He forms an intense connection to Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend and fights hard to protect it during their Duel with Sergey.
Perceptive as well, he was able to correctly predict Riley’s past and the reason behind Declan’s desire to become a duelist.
Early Life and Education
Similar to his 5D counterpart, Jack is an energetic and confident Duelist who believes the best way to entertain his audience is with flashy presentations. Jack was quite perceptive, being able to discern Riley’s backstory prior to their Duel with him and also deduce that Declan had his own agenda. Jack strongly values honor; therefore it wasn’t surprising when Yuya performed a Pendulum Summon without using Tuner monsters in their Duel; Jack even praised Yuya’s Dueltaining style as being more than simply about sheer strength alone.
Jack is an impressive Duelist who believes his own power can overcome any adversary. While Jack may appear boastful and arrogant at times, successfully foretelling how his Turbo Duel against Yuya Sakaki would go before it ever took place – saying Yuya would be overwhelmed by Jack’s strength – he does maintain high levels of honor while Dueling; saving Sergey when he nearly fell off course due to being overwhelmed by Jack. Additionally, Jack proved highly perceptive by deducing Riley’s backstory as well as understanding Declan’s purpose before seeing who it came from.
Jack stands out with purple eyes, fair skin, and spiked blonde hair (with two longer strands in front of his ears that hang down further down his head). He wears an elegant long white trench coat adorned with purple ribbon lining over a plunging white shirt and pants ensemble.
Achievement and Honors
Jack is a very proud and confident Duelist, confident in his own power to defeat anyone – an arrogance which occasionally borders on arrogance; yet also very perceptive: he accurately predicted Riley’s background story as well as deduce that Declan had his own agenda.
He forms a close bond with “Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend”, viewing it as the embodiment of his Dueling style and soul. He takes great care in protecting this ace monster during combat matches and often uses many hand traps to prevent its demise in Dueling duel situations.
He does not show surprise as readily, for example when Yuya performed the unprecedented Pendulum and Xyz Summoning in the Synchro Dimension. Also, Sergey fused his Duel Runner without surprising anyone; indeed he called it boring!
Similar to his 5D counterpart, Jack believes Duels to be an epic battle of souls and forms an emotional attachment with “Scarlight Red Dragon Archfiend”, whom he considers his dueling symbol. Often during battle he makes sure not to destroy it as much as he possibly can – to Sergey’s displeasure and with laughter from Topsiders onlookers alike!
Jack exhibits high levels of honor and respect for fellow Duelists. He did not express surprise when Yuya used Sam’s “Tuning Magician” to Synchro Summon Xyz “Enlightenment Paladin”, nor when Yuya performed unheard-of Dueling techniques that surprised even him. Jack is very perceptive; he accurately predicted Riley’s backstory.
