Broad Arrow Jack (born John Ashleigh) was a young Englishman who with his father and brother were the only survivors of a shipwreck. They were captured by a band who served the infamous Ogre. When Jack refused to kneel to The Ogre he was branded on the back with a broad arrow, the traditional symbol of British authority.
Jack's father and brother were killed by The Ogre and his gang, and Jack embarked on an outlaw campaign of revenge and robbery against upper crust society.
He eventually ended up back in England, having traveled a very long road, married to an aristocrat and living in Rockholme Castle.
