Jack Emmert used Statesmans's Pal as a title to give to some beta players who had griefed him on his regular account.
||I know the story that you're talking about with Jack. It was back in beta and they weren't bad mouthing him. They were griefing him. He was on a non dev character teaming with people who were side kicking him up. This was back when suddenly dropping your sidekick and watch them go from level 29 down to level 5 in the middle of a fight was still a thing. So while they were pointing and laughing at teh noob. He logged in his dev character, despawned the mobs in the zone then spawned a giant monster on top of them. He later told them which he was and this was where "Statesman's Pal" supposedly first originated from.
