Hangman Jarvis is a survivor who lives in Devil's Crossing. He administers executions of Aetherial-possessed humans, including the protagonist of the game.

Background[edit | edit source]

I'd have left you to hang but the Captain had other plans. He sees some purpose in you and I'm not going to argue.
~ Jarvis

Jarvis was present at the hanging of the game's protagonist when they were still possessed by an Aetherial. After the Aetherial fled its vessel, Captain John Bourbon spared the human's life.[1] Jarvis is the first person the Taken speaks to when they regain consciousness, only to receive a cold and insistent request to immediately go speak with the Captain.

Jarvis appears to generally distrust the formerly possessed human, no matter their achievements in fighting the enemies of humankind. Killing Warden Krieg has completely no effect on Jarvis' attitude, as he still states he considers the Taken to be no better than the old warden, and that he's convinced the player character has ulterior motives and will slip up eventually, after which Jarvis will have to execute them. Even preventing the Bloodsworn cultists of Ch'thon from releasing of the Loghorrean only earns a still-distrustful, yet somewhat astonished, response from the hangman that doesn't remotely resemble an apology for previous suspicions.
