On June 7, 2010, a photograph of Eyeless Jack was posted on 4chan by user Arnon. The post was titled Nightmare Fuel and included other images as well, including creatures from video games. As was the case with Slenderman, the picture came first, and then the story. On February 25, 2012, Wikia user Azelf5000, known on YouTube as Papa Pinche.

Eyeless Jack

Eyeless Jack is most often described as a person in a black hoodie wearing a blue mask with no nose or mouth. The eye holes are black, with a dark liquid, presumably blood, dripping from them. He is known for being able to remove a victim’s kidney while they sleep and suture the wound so perfectly, that it would appear he has anatomical and/or medical knowledge. Eyeless jack is stealthy, and almost never caught, and it would appear he needs to feed off of human kidneys to survive.

Here is the original story, as written by Azelf5000.

“Hello, my name is Mitch. I’m here to tell you guys about an experience I had. I don’t know if it was paranormal or whatever stupid words people use to describe supernatural phenomena, but after that thing visited me, I believe in that paranormal trash, now.

A week after I moved in with my brother, Edwin, after my house was foreclosed, I finished unpacking. Edwin liked the idea of me moving in, since we had not seen each other after 10 years, so I was excited, too. I soon fell asleep after I moved in. After that 1 week, I heard rustling noises coming from outside at about one in the morning. I thought it was a raccoon, so I ignored and tried to fall asleep. The next morning, I told Edwin about it, and he agreed.

The next night, however, I thought I heard my window opening and a loud thump, as if something entered my room. I darted up and looked around my room, but I saw nothing. The next morning, Edwin dropped his coffee cup when he saw me. He held up a nearby mirror and I saw myself. I had a large gash in my left cheek.

After I was rushed to the hospital, my doctor told me that I must have been sleepwalking, but then he showed me something that made my blood turn cold. He lifted up my shirt to reveal a sewn up incision where my kidneys were. I started in his eyes, my eyes widening. “You somehow lost your left kidney last night. We don’t know how, though. Sorry, Mitch.” my doctor told me.

The next night was my breaking point. Around midnight, I woke up to see a truly horrifying sight. I was staring face to face with a creature with a black hoodie and dark blue mask with no nose or mouth staring down at me. The thing that scared me the most was that it had no eyes. Just empty, black sockets. The creature also had some black substance dripping from it’s sockets. I grabbed the camera nearby on a mantel and took a picture. After the picture took, the creature lunged at me and tried to claw open my chest to get to my lungs. I stopped it by kicking it in the face. As I ran out of my room, I grabbed my wallet. I would need the money. I ran out of my brother’s house into the night. I eventually ended up in the woods near Edwin’s house and tripped on a rock.

I fell unconscious and woke up in the hospital. My doctor entered the room. The same one who treated me before. “I have good news and bad news, Mitch.” my doctor started. “The good news is that you had minor injuries, and your parents are going to pick you up.” I sighed with relief. “The bad news is that your brother has been killed by some… thing. Sorry.”

My parents took me back to Edwin’s house to collect my remaining belongings, which I did. Upon entering my room, I was scared, but remained calm. I grabbed my camera then stopped dead in my tracks. In the hallway leading to my room, I saw Edwin’s body and something small lying next to it. I picked up the small thing and entered my parent’s car, not mentioning Edwin’s corpse. I looked at the thing I had picked up and nearly vomited. I was holding my stolen half-eaten kidney, with some black substance on it.”

On November 21, 2014, Azelf5000 requested the story be removed from creepypasta, believing that since Jeff the Killer had been removed, Eyeless Jack should be also, before the admins decided what would happen with it. He has also expressed shame for having written the story.

Since then, many origin stories have come out, as well as fan fictions, trying to add more life to this terrifying being. The most popular origin story is that written by La-Mishi-Mish on Deviantart.com.

Eyeless Jack

You can read a snippet of the story here.

Jack awoke from a bucket of cold water being dumped over his head, blood trickling down the side of his head onto his ear and side of his face. He winced, feeling his head throb in pain. The second he remembered the last thing he saw, he gasped, looking up to see that he was sitting in front of everyone. His arms were held firmly behind his back. The leader of the cult walked up in front of him and smiled under the mask.

“Chernobog has found his sacrifice! Hail Chernobog!” He called, listening as the group repeated the phrase. Jack attempted to struggle, the pain of his head fighting against him. “You shall become one of Chernobog’s sons, the chosen one to live upon this wretched world and do his bidding.” The group cried the phrase once more. Jack shook his head as fast as he could.

“N-no… No! All of you are crazy! Let me go!!” He yelled, letting out a yelp of pain from his arms being twisted. The leader laughed, turning to the group behind him.

“Come! My brothers and sisters, help me change this nonbeliever into the son of Chernobog!” The group chanted the phrase, stepping closer to form a large circle around them. “Praise Chernobog, for his bloodstained hands will bring salvation to us all! HE shall bring us closer to our everlasting paradise! HE is our lord and savior! Praise Chernobog! Praise Chernobog!!” He cried once more. Jack listened as the group began chanting in a different language, he felt his heart beat grow faster, watching one of the group members walk before them with a tray of tools and other queer objects. The person pulled their mask off, revealing it to be Jenny. She smiled taking a spoon from the tray.

“Isn’t this great Jack? The great lord Chernobog has chosen you to be his son!” Jack shook his head, tears flooding his eyes. “I never knew you’d be the one.”

“No! Jenny no! Please, please don’t do this!” He begged, watching her stop in front of him. She giggled placing her hand on his forehead.

“All hail lord Chernobog~.”

The girl then stabbed the spoon in his left eye, ignoring the cries of pain Jack let out. He squirmed and struggled agains the two who held him down feeling his eye being gorged out from it’s socket. “Hold still Jack! You’ll make me kill you.” Jenny said with complete calmness as she began working on his other eye, watching blood spirt and trickle down his face, still ignoring his cries and pleas. The leader stepped in, holding a bowl of black hot ooze in his hands.

“Behold, the sight of Chernobog!” He called, watching Jenny hold his head still and began pouring the tar-like liquid inside his eye sockets. Jack let out a bloodcurdling scream of pain, feeling the substance overflow and trickle down his eyelids. Placing his hand on Jack’s forehead, the leader began chanting the same language as the others, watching as Jack’s body become limp and lifeless. He watched as Jenny held a book open to a passage of a different language.

Panting heavily, Jack rose up from the now dead body of Bobby, yanking off the mask he wore like the others. Standing up, he looked over the massacre he created. Every single person was dead. Masks torn off, throats slashed, guts cut open, eyes gouged out. His hood and pants stained with blood. Scalpel in hand, Jack turned to the last living person. Jenny, border lining death, watched as he stepped above her. His skin had turned black, teeth sharpened to a point, nails long and sharp. He wasn’t human anymore. She smiled, blood leaking from her mouth as she spoke.

“R-release me… into ever..lasting… paradi..se….” Jack growled low, teeth showing.

“You don’t deserve paradise… none of you do…” He knelt down, swiping the mask from the ground. “Burn in Hell. ALL, of you.” Jenny watched as he pulled the mask on, the black substance trickling down onto the mask from his eyes. She grabbed ahold of his ankle weakly, begging to be released to paradise. Only to have him pull away from her before walking off into the shadows. She cried, tears rolling down her face as she called out to him until her last breath.
