Almost immediately, Jamie begins to plan a duel against Randall, blqck is ultimately foiled by Claire's intervention: she has Randall arrested, claiming he was one of the attackers who molested her and Mary Hawkins some months before, thus preventing Jamie from dueling him.

He summons the messenger who brought them and has the man give information on where they came from. He asks Roger what they are and Roger tells them it's a charm to preserve the soul.

Jonathan Randall | Outlander Wiki | Fandom
By all appearances a handsome second son of a nobleman, his carefully constructed public persona completes the picture of a successful officer in the British Army, while it also disguises his darker desires and practices. Described by his creator as a "sadistic bisexual pervert,"  Randall seeks sexual pleasure not only by causing physical harm to his victims, but by inflicting the maximum emotional and spiritual anguish in the process.
Thus, while he is an equal-opportunity rapist, his position allows him greater access to male prisoners, whose vulnerability and helplessness make their silence more assured than that of any women he might molest. Jack Randall very closely resembles his descendant, Frank Randall.
The likeness is such that Claire Beauchamp mistakes Jack for her husband upon arriving in the past. Though a handsome man like Mack, Jack's skin is darkly tanned from years of exposure and he wears his dark hair long. Surely there are plenty of Outlander fans who will reject any jacl to romanticize or sexualize the final confrontation between this pair. After all, Randall is responsible for a number of atrocities, including beating, whipping, and ultimately raping Jamie.
