|Artist impression of the elusive Phantom Jack O'Lantern|
Ah, I see you are beginning to understand.
The Phantom Jack O'Lantern is the avenger of pumpkins everywhere. A daemonic figure (well, daemonic for pumpkins, in the Greek tradition) that serves to get revenge upon the cruel humans for their mistreatment of that most wonderful specimen of herbaceous life. Rising somewhere in the world every Samhain, the Phantom Jack O'Lantern seeks out a human offender, one who has been particularly maleficent toward the pumpkins, and exacts terrible revenge upon the transgressor by beheading that person, scooping out the head and sticking a candle in the offender's mouth.
Where will be arise this year?
Who will he strike?
Can he be stopped?
Well, thankfully there is an opposite to this entity of vengeance. For while the Phantom Jack O'Lantern was born of the anguish of pumpkins wronged there is another who was born from the spirit of the pumpkins who understood their new role in this sacred event. Unfortunately they look an awful lot alike so you never can tell who you are seeing until it is too late...
