The Hanged Man (XII) is the twelfth Major Arcana card in the Tarot decks. Recently activated in The Dark Calling. His name is Paul. He was the on staff medic in Death's Castle. He activated himself by killing Finn, the Magician.
Described by Evie as, "-about twenty-six or so, with buzz-cut black hair. His blue eyes were widely spaced, and he had a toothy grin that made him approachable."
The Hanged Man, our Lord Uncanny, is still the inactivated card and has all of his information redacted. A lot of fandom members speculate that Jack is actually the inactivated card. Especially since in this book, Day Zero, a bit of Jack's page is also blacked out. Although in The Dark Calling (The Arcana Chronicles #5) it is revealed that it is in fact Paul, the EMT that lives in Aric's (Death's) castle.
