Tall Jake is the antagonist of the half-novel half-graphic-novel Malice and it's sequel Havoc.


Tall Jake lives in the previously believed to be fictional world of Malice, a land from a grisly comic series focusing on those trapped inside, with rumors that a certain ritual will make Tall Jake take you away. Unfortunately for many children, the rumors turn out to be true.

Relation to Slender ManEdit

Malice was released in 2009, the same year Slender Man appeared on Something Awful Forums. While Slender Man appeared June 10th, Malice was released October 1.

Like Slender Man, Tall Jake is tall and slender, kidnaps children, and leaves no trace of the events.

Like The Operator and some other adaptations of Slender Man, Tall Jake is capable of erasing an extensive amount of people's memories.

Unlike Slender Man, Tall Jake points out in Havoc that he never kidnapped anyone who didn't ask to be taken away, since he only takes those who perform an elaborate ritual.


  • Chris Wooding stated that he drew inspiration from the Bloody Mary myth when creating Tall Jake.
