Jack of Blades' Mask, sometimes referred to as the Soul Mask, is the grisly-looking and instantly recognizable mask worn by Jack of Blades. The mask itself has the ability to trap and carry souls. Some speculate that Jack has used the mask to possess many Heroes over the centuries, granting him control of their body and making him appear immortal. This correlates with the fact that Jack's original physical form was broken long ago, through his fight with William Black.

After slaying Jack in his humanoid form, the Hero of Oakvale came into the possession of the mask. Jack's soul however, had escaped it, making it nothing more than an empty shell. Later, in order to open the Bronze Gate, the Hero uses the mask to trap the souls of three different types of Heroes - The Souls of Heroes quest. And after slaying Jack in his final form - a dragon - he traps Jack's soul, once again, in the mask. The Hero then has a choice of whether to wear the mask, or throw it into the volcanic surroundings of Archon's Folly. However, the plot explains that Hero refused to put the Mask on his face, and he threw it into lava.

Warning: The Soul Mask cannot be removed after it is put on.

The legendary and instantly recognisable mask worn by Jack of Blades.

that Jack used it to possess the bodies of many Heroes over the
centuries, thereby appearing immortal to all.


  • Jack's mask is similar to a phylactery, a container where the soul flees upon the death of it's current body/host, if the phylactery is destroyed while the soul is within it, then so is the soul.
  • Jack's Mask can also be used as a temporary holding area for souls as the Hero eventually uses the souls to open the Bronze Gate by releasing them into the machine.
  • In Fable Heroes, a reward item of Jack's Mask can be obtained for use in dressing up a players Xbox 360 avatar. To obtain the mask, the player must unlock all abilities for Jack of Blades.
