Sebastian Jackal - Sebastian
Jackal - A computer generated villain dressed in a white suite
and hat on the science fiction adventure DEADLY GAMES/UPN/1995-96.
Sebastian Jackal was a by-product of a computer program designed
by scientist Gus Lloyd, whose experiments with pure energy,
antimatter and computer games accidentally created an evil
holographic form of life who sought to conquer the planet.
living in the real world, Sebastian called forth a legion of
diabolical henchmen inspired by Gus' own experiences, (for
example, his ex-mother-in-law, or a former tormenting high
school jock) who sought to kill him and his ex-wife. Lauren.
Gus' mission is to shut his creations down and save the world.

programming accident, and then, they both set out to defeat
Sebastian with the help of their friend Peter Rucker. In his
game, Gus had programmed himself as the hero, a.k.a. "The Cold
Each of the villains in the game could only be destroyed by a
particular weakness that Gus programmed into the game. For
example, fastidious Evil Shirley (modeled after Gus' former
mother-in-law), could be stopped with gun that shot dirt; and
the evil version of Gus' ex-boss (who fired people with
exploding pink slips) could be destroyed by red ink, literally.
