Gateway Demons - Happy Halloween!

Ah, a fire-breathing pumpkin.  The gateway demon to a cheerful holiday season.

They come from a story about a fellow named Jack, that tricked the devil into never taking his soul.  However, Jack was a bad man, and when he died, Heaven wouldn't take him either.

So it is, then, that Jack wanders the world with nothing but a tiny ember of light, which he has placed inside his favorite food in life - a carved turnip.  He keeps searching for his final resting place, but stands cursed to never succeed.

He is Jack, of the Lantern.

Sounds like a good Ravenloft Lord to me.
