Hal Jordan's older brother. Jack was a lawyer who was elected district attorney of Coast City; he was critical of his brother both in and out of costume. Jack blamed Hal's absence from family affairs for their mother's deteriorating health and eventual death. He ran an unsuccessful campaign for governor of Alaska.
Hal Jordan's younger brother, Jim works as an office drone for a Coast City insurance company. Jim is quiet and timid—a huge contrast from his daredevil brother—and is overly concerned with safety. He and his family were among the first to move back to Coast City after its reconstruction, but quickly began to consider moving away again due to the city's reputation. However, thanks to Hal's example, Jim decided to stick in there and loosen up with his family.
Jillian "Cowgirl" Pearlman
Jillian is a pilot in the Air Force (call sign-Cowgirl), working along side Hal Jordan. She was shot down and made a POW, but fought her captors every step of the way before being rescued by Hal as the Green Lantern. She and Hal eventually fell in love. During a date, Carol Ferris, possessed by the Star Sapphire Gem, attacked them. However, after noting that Hal had feelings for Jillian, the Gem transfered to her. Hal and Carol worked together and freed her from the Gem's hold, but the Zamarons arrived and made Hal choose a girl - "winner" became the new Star Sapphire (Hal decided to Take a Third Option
and chose a Zamaron, forcing them to retreat to deal with it). She and Carol parted on friendly terms, but both love Hal and he is conflicted on which one he will choose in the end.
Tom "Pieface" Kalmaku
Ferris Aircraft mechanic and Hal's friend. Tom was aware of Hal's secret identity almost from the start and helped him out in his adventures. Years later, after Tom got married and started a family, Carol Ferris made him a full partner in Ferris Aircraft.
- Berserk Button: In modern stories, calling him "Pieface", which is an offensive reference to his Inuit ethnicity.
- Out of Focus: He's almost never seen these days, but the fact that he's now a CEO means he's probably doing well.
- Refusal of the Call: After the Millennium crossover, Tom was chosen by the Guardians to be one of the New Guardians, but he declined because he had a family to look after.
- Secret Keeper
- Sidekick: To Hal in The Silver Age of Comic Books.
- Society Marches On: Tom Kalmaku was called "Pieface" because he was Inuit. (Modern-day stories tried to explain this as a pun on "Eskimo pie", which was never stated in the Silver Age). This nickname was later quietly dropped. Kalmaku debuted in 1959, when the thought of a non-white person being trusted as a Secret Keeper would've been controversial before considering that Hal entrusted Kalmaku with the lantern, and even had Tom replace him as Green Lantern on at least one occasion.
