Nimble Jack is a Touched person whose turn allows the creation of floating plates that can be used as protective shields or sturdy platforms.[1]

Biography

Nimble confronts Bonfire Annie as she makes her way through the Beggar King's men. She attempts to torch Nimble as she did the men before, but Nimble deflects the flames creating some type of shield. Nimble reveals to be working with the Beggar King, rather than for him.[1]

Knowing why Annie is looking for Odium, Nimble assures her that the Beggar King didn't kill Mary Brighton. Nimble proposes a deal: should Annie leave then, all will be forgiven regarding the opium she Torched. Using more shields as platforms, Nimble escapes out the alleyway.[1]

Before being allowed to stay at St. Romaulda's Orphanage, Nimble is screened, among other things, by Désirée to ensure that he's not a threat. Later, he spars in the courtyard with Bonfire, using shields to deflect her fire attacks.[2]

Nimble is forced to choose between Amalia, who seeks to drill into the ground in search of Galanthi, and Penance, who is organizing a rescue mission on behalf of Maladie. Nimble initially chooses Amalia, following behind Bonfire, but ultimately joins Penance after she offers payment.[2]

Nimble and Su Ping Lim take out one of the sharpshooters and get into position as Maladie is escorted out. On Penance's signal, Nimble creates shields to bridge the gap between Su and the podium below where Maladie stands, using the platforms as stepping stones. However, Su falls short after Nimble loses focus from being shot at. After Maladie kills herself, Nimble screams from on the roof for George not to touch the lever.[2]
