|Jacek (first name unknown)
|Cadet, First year
Jacek, a character from “Iron Flame,” is depicted as a person dealing with a significant amount of anger, as evidenced during a sparring session where he hits Sloane, exceptionally hard. This incident prompts a reaction from Imogen and Rhi who note that Jacek is “channeling some serious anger.”
It’s also revealed that Jacek is the younger brother of Navil Jacek (second-year from Third Wing), who was recently listed on the death roll. Jesinia saw him hauled away by Markham. This background adds a layer of tragedy and complexity to Jacek’s character, indicating that his aggressive behavior in the sparring session might be a way of coping with his brother’s death.

“Because he didn’t return a book on time?” Imogen’s eyebrows rise.
“I think he asked for something he shouldn’t have, and yes, I know
that sounds absolutely ridiculous, but there’s no other explanation for
him being found in his room, beaten to death.”
