First Mention: First Intermission 43 First Appearance: LIAB 57

Jeftichew (also going by "JoJo") is a Carnymancer formerly in the service of Unaroyal, now residing in the Magic Kingdom. Jeftichew is also the caster hiding behind the Goblin Knob portal when Parson Gotti enters the Magic Kingdom (Book 2, Page 60), and who confronts him in the tunnel excavated by Sizemore under Portal Park. Erf-b2-p62Same-site.PNG Note that Jeftichew's eye color is identical to Sylvia's, a former Unaroyal unit.

While a caster, the extent of JoJo's Mojo is not yet clear.

Real World References

Fedor Jeftichew was a 19th century circus sideshow performer, the "Dog-faced Boy," who moved to the United States to tour with P.T. Barnum at 16. Jeftichew the Carnymancer sports similar dress and (slightly less extreme) facial hair.

Jeftichew wears something very like a uniform worn by George Harrison's "Sgt. Pepper" analog, such as seen in the movie Yellow Submarine. His use of the line "Here comes the sun" is a reference to the song of the same name on The Beatles' 1969 album Abbey Road. The song was written by Harrison. The nickname "Jojo" may be a simultaneous reference both to the Barnum performer and the Beatles song "Get Back".

In light of this information, the fact that his name in-comic is spelled "Jefftichew," adding an "f," suggests a typo or alternate spelling.
