Jersey Devil is one of the Allied Alliance Solo Heroes from New Jersey who is the legendary mythical being from Pine Barrens. He's mostly considered as a myth and legend while others he's a demon who hunts humans whom trespasses his domain. But few they say he's a guardian of the forest in the night.
According to a legend from 1735 CE, he was a thirteenth child to the Leeds family after he was born from his mother's womb in a stormy night. Born as a normal child, he was suddenly turned into a creature with a hooves, a goat's head, bat wings, and a forked tail. Growled and screamed, it killed the midwife before he flew up the chimney and heading to Pine Barrens. Some say he was born from the Devil, others said he killed the local children as they believe in a dark legend. Or perhaps, his family was lived with the curse. A terrible curse from the Devil.
And thus it became known as the Jersey Devil.
After two hundred and fifty years, the Jersey Devil have hid himself away from the humans' eyes in Pine Barrens where he build his own manor with his dark magic and hidden his home from plain sight, deep within the woods. He decorated the interiors with gothic looks and images of himself in canvas painting. For centuries, Jersey Devil have maintained his existence away from the humans though he leaves tracks behind but soon they claimed as a hoax and luckily they could not prove it of his existence. But until one night, a group of demons called themselves the O'Devil Gang appeared before his manor without any explanation. He had never a visitor before and then he had one. But these visitors have a evil intention as the leader of the gang, Count Krauft O'Devil, appeared. Jersey Devil welcomed them in open arms but Count O'Devil offered him to join his gang to get revenge on the Pumpkin Head named Jack O'Lantern and his friends who defeated the Count a long time ago. Fortunately for Jersey Devil, he refused the offer and demanded them to leave his home and face their judgement and he did as he battled his new foe with dark magic and Dark Aura and banished them from Pine Barrens for good and made them sure they will never return. This is how the Jersey Devil will never made a deal with a villain like Count Krauft O'Devil.
But then, when he heard the news on the radio about the hostage situation in Lakewood, Jersey Devil have decided to step out of the shadow and rescued the hostages, mostly children, and beat the criminals. After his daring action, he recognized the O'Devil Gang as he knew this was not yet over and returned to Pine Barrens before the police arrived. Now the media knows that Jersey Devil have saved the hostages, considering him as a hero of the state although he's still a myth and legend and still no evidence about his existence.
Jersey Devil have made his final decision: he shall become a hero of New Jersey and the guardian of Pine Barrens.
