Jackie is one of the final spirits you will meet as the Spiritfarer. His quest line is intertwined with Daria’s, so you’ll end up following both simultaneously.

Since you don’t encounter him until much later in the game, you are expected to already have a number of boat improvements and abilities unlocked beforehand.

If not, then this guide should provide you with a step-by-step walkthrough of his complete quest line. We also added his mood factors, perks, and other characteristics.

How To Get Jackie
