Sidekick Saturday [23] - Loyal

Sidekick Saturday
Sidekick Saturday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted here by Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn't have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fits in this week's type
• Share a picture (if possible) and information about the character
• Give the title and author of a book the character can be found in
• Please don't include too many spoilers when describing why the character is such a great sidekick
• Put your link in the Linky thing and comment

Saturday the 25th - Bad Turned Good

This week is Loyal

My choice is Jack Twist
House of Night by P.C. Cast and Kristen Cast

Jack Twist drawn by Jaclyn Canada '04

Jack Twist was a student at the House of Night and was immediately brought in by the main group of characters in the book because of his knowledge of technology. He was the AV guy when they would hold their rituals. He was always there to offer help and was a constant by their side whenever there was trouble. He also took care of Dutchess when her owner was gone even though dogs are a misnomer in this world and not looked at in the same way as cats. The only way I know to describe him besides incredibly nice is staunchly loyal. 


“What more could you want? How about dominion over this 'beautiful place'? Beauty doesn't last. Friends and family decay. Power is the only thing that goes on forever."
Jack answered with his gut. "No, love goes on forever.”

  1. I have to check with my sister who this character is. I read the first three books a while back, maybe I never came across him. The last quote seals the deal with all that romantic optimism; I like this Jack Twist person. I'm taking my sister to the movies tomorrow, but I'll make sure to borrow my mom's pen (because we're still the kids that ask their for the time and if she has a pen) and I'm writing her dang Kelly Meding choice down on my arm. I told her I needed quotes this week because she had fans. She laughed at me. Have a great weekend, Jaclyn!!

  2. I haven't read the series but he sound great. As always, love your pictures.

  3. He does sound cool and love your drawing!

  4. Thank you, Alisa :D I'm so glad you stopped by.

  5. I loved jack! He was my favourite out of all the HON characters only because he didn't play games, or have ulterior motives, he was just brave and caring.

  6. Oh, Jaclyn! I hadn't even read the words above the picture and I knew it was Jack! :) I love Jack! The HON series was one I was leery of reading - thinking it might be too teenager-y for me. But I grew to love it and the characters. Jack was awesome...the person everyone knew they could count on! Thanks for sharing Jack and your lovely pictures! :)

  7. You're so right. He definitely didn't have any ulterior motives - it was all out there for everyone to see and he was so GOOD. Thank you for stopping by :D

  8. It does get a bit teenager-y from time to time, but I still enjoy it. Some of the characters of course I love more than others and I think Jack is so adorable. Thank you :D

  9. That's another series I haven't read. He does sound like a great character, very loyal

  10. Thank you :D I really appreciate that.

  11. Oh maybe he's not there until the 4th book, but he does have a huge part once he's involved and he's probably one of my favorite likable nice characters in fiction. To be honest, I don't like the newer books in the series as much as the first ones but some of the characters are still dear to my heart. I can't wait to see what you and your mom and sister cook up! Have an excellent time :D
