When a hollowjack is fully grown, it chooses a pumpkin from within its patch to serve as its head, turning the pumpkin into a possessed jack-o-lantern. This seems to allow it to leave its patch and roam through the darkest hours of the night, with only bridges - and stronger creatures - to mark the edges of its territory. A hollowjack is an extremely territorial creature and is very unlikely to tolerate trespassers at all, let alone bond with those few magi who attempt to claim one as a companion. Fortunately their rarity protects most magi from accidentally encountering one, though many have told tales of the wispy green flames of their eyes spotted at a distance, signaling a hollowjack stalking through the countryside.

The hollowjack spends most of its life in the pumpkin patch where it hatches, waiting quietly in the shadows and beneath the vines. On dark moonless nights, especially towards the end of the year, it emerges from its patch to hunt anyone unlucky enough to be nearby. Fast and agile, its eyes burning with green flame, it will run down those in its territory and carry them away into the night, never to be seen again. Fortunately the hollowjack has one weakness: it cannot cross bridges. If any magi finds themselves being chased by a hollowjack, they know that if they can reach a bridge - and get across it - they will be safe, if unable to ever return to that area for fear that the hollowjack will remember their scent.
