    Jacqueline "Jax" Epoch
The flannel sorceress
After "borrowing" a spellbook, a pair of magic gloves and boots and returning home from Realmsend, she finds out that a lot of weird things have been happening and she currently being put on trial for releasing the Quicken, a being that destroys realities.

  • Action Prologue: Shows Jax crashing through a window on top of a building
  • Alice Allusion: When a rabbit escaped from its cage, Jax chased after it but while chasing after the rabbit, she ended up stepping into an interdimensional portal into Realmsend.
  • Art Evolution: In volume 1, the style was first semi-realistic. But throughout the book, it changes into having a simple, cartoony style.
  • Art Shift: Only during her dream sequences where she dreams about the worms, which were the Quicken (spoiler) where the style is changed into being blobby and loose.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Happens two times, but both of them are downplayed. In one instance she tried to cast a fire spell, but ended up burning her arm off. She tried to cast a spell to grow her arm, but end up growing a tree bunch (she got better though).
    • In another instance, while Jax was tied up at the bottom of the elevator shaft, her head turns into a balloon by Thomas Lorik in order for her to get the elevator key.
  • Book Worm: She even said so herself.
  • Dream Sequence: She has quite a few…
  • Evil Twin: After returning to her world, she finds out that her friends and family mistook her evil twin as the real Jax for a week, despite the fact that she only stayed Realmsend for a couple minutes.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: After taking the spellbook and the magic gloves and boots, she does have troubles with casting spells, but she does get better later on
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Believes in magic and wants her life to be more magical and interesting.
  • Year Outside, Hour Inside: Downplayed. She only explored Realmsend, and the one dimension where she took the spellook, and the magic boots and shoes for a couple minutes, only to find out that when she returned to her world, a week just passed.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: She’s a 16 year old high schooler.
  • Spell Book: Took this along with the magic boots and gloves.
  • Sticky Fingers: In Jax’s philosophy, it’s not stealing if you plan to return it.
