Telepaths & Empaths
Canonically, it's impossible to read Jack's mind. His mind is described as being blank, empty, as though he were dead. This is probably because technically, he should be.
Here's Jack's POV on the discussion where this comes up in canon.

It's not explained how this might impact on empaths, but I'm assuming that it's going to be pretty much the same. Let me know if you think your character would be able to feel his thoughts and we can work something out.

He does, however, have the ability to project his thoughts into the minds of a telepath if he wants to communicate with them. If you want to do something with this ability, let's!

If your character is sensitive to disruptions in time, like a Time Lord or a sun avatar from Andromeda, they are likely to find Jack upsetting or disconcerting to be around. The Doctor describes him as a fixed point in time and space. He's "a Fact", a thing that should never happen, which makes the Doctor canonically uncomfortable with him.

If this is something your character would notice, please fee free to. Here is an example of how it's been handled in-game.

If there is a need to kill Jack and the mods are okay with it, so am I. Jack is immortal, so when he's killed, he stays dead for anything from a few minutes to a few days, depending on the type and nature of the trauma, and then returns to life.

I'm also fine with him being injured, particularly since he tends to heal rather quickly from fairly serious injuries.

If you want to hash anything out, contact me. I'm pretty easygoing.
