An old billionaire recluse whose empire bankrupted Luther Kane. Luther offered Jack Russell aka Werewolf by Night, a possible cure for the hereditary lycanthropy condition that was in his family which he could use on his sister to make sure she never suffered the same fate he had, if only he would kill Hemp. Under duress, Jack agree and Luther and his henchman Desmond dropped him off at Hemp's estate.
Transforming into Werewolf by Night, Jack had vague memories of what he needed to do and fought his way into Hemp's compound. He found hemp just as a total eclipse of moon happened, transforming him back into his normal human self. Jack realized that Hemp was a completely senile old man and realized he could never purposely take a life anyway, so he made his way back to Luther.
Jack demanded the cure from Luther, who refused, as Jack had not held up his end of the bargain. Jack attacked Luther only to be attacked by Desmond. As the two struggled, the lunar eclipse ended and the werewolf emerged once more, breaking Desmond's back and he fought him off. Luther told Jack he regretted his choice as he stared at the monster, saying he was too much trouble, and in that instant seemingly died of a heart attack.
