Jack Bass spent the first many years of his life not simply being in the shadow of his older brother Bart, but he was emotionally, and physically dominated by his older brother. Bart spent the first fifteen years of Jack's life beating loyalty into him, until Jack basically gave up and became a distinctly loyal follower of Bart Bass, but also silently greatly resented his older brother for everything that he had done to him. Jack became one of the main commanders of the Fire Sale, as a test from his brother, and his success during this has brought him an increased amount of respect from his father, but this respect doesn't really change the fact that Bart is a cold man, or any of the things that he has done to Jack over the years. His marriage to Lisa Bass came to change a lot of things for Jack, as he finally had someone loyal to him, and not to his brother and this has led to him becoming more seperate, and disloyal to his brother on a silent level.

I'm sorry father. If your not with me then your against me.
Despite constant attempts to turn Bartholomule Bass from this violent path it would be a complete failure by Francis, and Karie Bass and as their failure led to Bart beggining to live on the streets the marriage between Karie, and Francis would collapse with Karie leaving the House Bass estate and going to return home with her House Catridge family. This betrayal as Bart saw it would be the final straw for the violent Bart Bass of whom took this betrayal and confronted his father of whom would blame House Catridge for what had happened and at these words he realizes his mistake to late as Bart screamed that he would destroy House Catridge and leave them ruined his mother included, and realizing what he had done Francis Bass attempted to back his words back but failed at convincing Bart but did convince Bart that Francis was a coward. Convinced his father would resist what needed to be done Bart would murder his father, and when his sister Karie came into the room she too would be killed by the frenzied Bart.
When Francis Bass died, the house clearly decided to make Bart Bass the new Lord of House Bass. With the power he had always craved now his, he went quickly about planning the moves he would become famous for.
The Fire Sale would first begin formulating in the mind of Bartholomule Bass during the days following the naming of Bartholomule as the new lord of House Bass, and having murdered his father and had any dissenting voices killed there was nothing to stand in the ways of his plans. Originally Bart planned to move against House Munitz but following a confrontation a second confrontation with Benjamin Catridge he would change his target to be completely House Catridge and begin forming his forces for the massacre that would become known as the Fire Sale. House Catridge had significant numbers (as detailed to the right) and thus Bartholomule knew that he had to organize something that would bring all of their numbers together and thus he begin planning a family reunion of sorts and to do this he bribed Fredrik of Catridge of whom stood as the personal steward of Lord Benjamin Catridge and had fallen in love with Benjamin but had been spurned in his advances leading to a bitter hatred to form in Fredrik against Benjamin who he felt looked down on him for his homosexuality. Of the male members of House Catridge Bartholomule was able to have every member of the family agree to the meeting outside of Markus Catridge of whom was in the Kingdom of Gilneas where all word of him said that he was a Dragonoph zeolet who would most likely become a Dragonoph priest and thus was of little threat. With the family forming for the meeting Bartholomule alongside his co-conspirator in his brother Jack Bass would gather dozens of men at arms secretly from the House Bass forces and dressed in House Catridge clothes they would take over the guard duties from the House Catridge honor guard on the day of the meeting. As the killing reached its zenith it was Bartholume and Jack that found their mother Karie attempting to get the young Flavion Catridge III., and Delice Catridge out of a window to escape the carnage but were stopped by her two sons. Realizing they were responsible for the killing she attacked them attempting to by Flavion and Delice time to escape but both her sons stabbed her fatally wounding her and then they killed the two escaping children who were too frightened to jump from the window.
Heinrick would be in Gilneas during the events of the Fire Sale and as the oldest remaining male of the family he would become the new lord of House Catridge but shortly upon his return he was met by Bartholomule Bass of whom admitted that he had done the whole thing and then had Heinrick's leg cut off as a means of showing him his power.
His marriage to Lisa Bass came to change a lot of things for Jack, as he finally had someone loyal to him, and not to his brother and this has led to him becoming more seperate, and disloyal to his brother on a silent level.
