Jackson
Cenobite summoned by the Puzzle in Billy's mind's eye. He is extremely tall and very muscular and wears shorts, trainers and a pair of boxing gloves. He has razor blades inserted above his eyes, knives inserted through his ankles and wrists in a cross shape and is covered in various cuts and scarring. Before he was a Cenobite he was a fighter who got bored just like Billy. He was a better boxer than Billy and the first person to ever knock him down. He told Billy that he would experience a lot of things and that however good he was, somebody was always better. He told Billy he had an eternity to find a challenge.
Moore, Billy
Also: The Champ, The Heavyweight Champion of the World.
A massive, black boxer with dark hair. Born and raised in the slums of detroit, he graduated Cum Laude from Cornell. His casual clothes were a black top and jeans with a black hat and a watch and a chain with "#ONE" on it. Billy was the heavyweight champion of the world, said to be "better than Jack Johnson, better than Dempsey, Louis, Ali, and Tyson". He had "all the money, titles, and material items anyone in the world could ask for". Despite this, Billy was bored and had no challenges. Billy walked the streets looking for people to attack him. He beat up three punks that tried to mug him in Red Hook. Billy saw a puzze in his mind's eye and solved it by perfecting his boxing movements. He arrived in Hell where he met Jackson. Jackson was the first person to ever knock him down. In Hell, Billy had eternity to find his challenge amongst an infinite number of boxing matches.
