Jacques was born as youngest child to a vicomte's brother of House Verreuil. It was the wish of his parents to have at least one child to dedicate themselves to Naamah's service. Even if young Jacques lacked in charm, his disposition was more of the observing, dissecting kind, he was presented to various dowaynes on Mont Nuit in Elua. His mother wanted to see him settled at Dahlia House, where he ended up at first. At the age of ten he took the candy test, and it was found that he was more suited to become a Mandrake.

He would have joined Mandrake House then, but as it happened, there was a visitor there when Jacques was to present himself. Adélard nó Chardon Pourpre, leader of a salon in Pointe d'Oeste. He and the Mandrake Dowayne made a game of it. Only little is known about what games they engaged in to decide the matter, but eventually, Adélard was victorious and paid the required sum to the Dahlia Dowayne, to take Jacques with him and have him trained in far away Kusheth.

It is there, that Jacques became Jacques nó Chardon Pourpre, where he had his debut and then earned his marque in a manner, a Mandrake trained courtesan would. His skill with flechettes came naturally to him, as if he were someone who had Kushiel's blood flowing in his veins. He finished his marque at the age of nineteen, and served a few more years at the salon. There was a patron who assigned him as escort on her travels to Marsilikos. Seeing La Rose Sauvage, Jacques was instantly fascinated, seeing potential there, but also a chance to make more of a name for himself. He joined La Rose Sauvage at the age of twenty-tree, and it would take him another fourteen years to find himself acknowledged, named the next Dowayne after Annabelle decided to retire, in the year 1306, after Annabelle had transferred responsibilites for Valerian and Alyssum canon roses each to one particular Second of that calling: Virginie for the White Roses, and Séverine for the Red Roses. Staying in charge at first of the Thorns, he retired from that particular responsibility as well, in the year 1310, naming Baptiste the first Second of Thorns, while he since then has focused on leading the salon as a whole.
