In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Jacks is a similar minor character. He is a member of the household guard at Winterfell.

Jacks is one of the guards who accompany Eddard Stark to King's Landing. He and Varly escort Eddard when he visits the armorer Tobho Mott and discovers Gendry, one of Robert Baratheon's bastard.

He is one of the few survivors of the massacre of the Stark household. He is later sent with Cleos Frey to the Starks' camp, to deliver Tyrion Lannister's counterterms and Eddard's bones. He is then put under the command of Hallis Mollen.

He is sent north with Hallis Mollen's men to escort Eddard's bones back to Winterfell. Before they reach Moat Cailin, however, the ironborn invade the North. It is unknown what has become of Jacks and the rest of the party; unlike in the show, Eddard's bones have not been brought yet to Winterfell.
