Jacques is the tertiary antagonist in Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island. He is a ferryman who secretly worked with Simone Lenoir and Lena Dupree to achieve immortality by draining the life force of the inhabitants of Moonscar Island.
He was voiced by Jim Cummings.
Jacques was originally represented as a genuinely friendly Cajun ferry driver, but it was later revealed that along with Lena and Simone, he had tricked the gang into going to Moonscar Island.
As Scooby and Shaggy were running from the zombies, it was revealed that Jacques was also a werecat. It was also revealed that he was aware that Simone Lenoir and her aid Lena Dupree were draining the life force of the former inhabitants of the island, in order to preserve their immortality. He later asked for immortality, and they granted it to him. Unlike Simone and Lena, who did not know that the cat god would curse them to drain life from others (it's even implied they despise it cursing Morgan Moonscar for forcing them to become werecats to avenge their tribe), Jacques had absolutely no problem with having to kill others to preserve his immortality. Therefore, this makes him one of the most despicable antagonists to ever appear on Scooby-Doo.
He was defeated when the moon's shadow moved past the midnight alignment of the Harvest Moon. He, along with the other werecats, disintegrated to ashes so the zombies could rest in peace.
