Jack Goldwyn is your typical cliched hardboiled PI straight out of a 1940's crime novel. His Father George Goldwyn was gunned down in an alleyway whilst responding to a 911 call. This incident drove his Mother insane who eventually ended up in a mental asylum.
Jack served 12 years in Santa Lina's police department as a beat cop before working his way to detective in a relatively short time. He eventually made the decision to quit the force and go freelance. Due to Santa Lina's harsh and violent nature, as a private cop he still maintains some of the rights and privilages given to regular cops.
Jack is a huge fan of Raymond Chandler and Humphrey Bogart, and the film-noir influence on his life can clearly be seen in his clothing, mannerisms and attitude.
