I'm not exceptional physically--average height, slightly slimmer build. I have pale green eyes behind my glasses and sandy blond hair. I usually give people the impression that I'm distracted or detached and, well, honestly, I am. My eyes move around a lot and I'm starting to make eye contact with people but it's a cold gaze.
My name has long been a sore point but my parents had a horrible sense of humour and cursed me with a horrible name. "Jack Daniels" has been a thorn in my side my whole life and has been the cause of a lot of ridicule. This has probably been part of why I've been a loner and not let people get too close. As I kid, I didn't get why everyone laughed but now I just go by "JaDe" or lie about my name and say it's "Jay" to save me the trouble.
Parents were popular and heavy drinkers so I spent my formative years reading and playing with building toys. Relationships with people haven't been successful and, while I'm not unattractive, my lack of personal skills has limited my romantic entanglements and kept friends at arms length. People are messy, uncontrollable, and unpredictable and I much prefer to keep to myself most of the time and definitely prefer technology because I can make it what I want, control it, and know what will happen.
Growing up in the big city was brutal. I was surrounded by so many people all the time and I never felt comfortable. My parents were fairly well-off, if absent, so I had a lot of time with technology. After college, I bounced around a bit, taking odd jobs that no human would do and making new 'friends' to do what was needed. I've worked in mines, offshore, and helped with a few government projects that "never existed" (lost a few very special friends in those and don't like doing them). When the opportunity came up to move to the mine in Sudbury, it seemed like a perfect fit for us. Far from the crowds, steady work, lots of people who understand science first. For the first time in my life, I'm content.
All of my robots are programmed to recognize me and obey. It's tied to an implant I've had for many years at it's simplest, but that's just the final failsafe. Many can recognize me in more general terms. I've designed too many dangerous and deadly machines, not to mention too many that I cherish, to ever trust anyone to have authority over them. It's always and exclusively me, no matter what I say to them.

2017-07-28 Updated aspects with Smart Dust aspects (not the intrinsic thing that doesn't exist except as a concept).
Since the Vatican incident, the clanks have been decimated. Jake is taking it very personally and is reeling at the loss of his peaceful hive and is developing anger. There are new clanks coming and they won't be defenseless.... never again to feel that loss...
Jake is getting tired of hiding. It hasn't worked out well and they are feeling a loss of presence in the world. They are drifting back to using "Jade" because, well, why not? but a new identity is growing and they don't have a name yet.

|2034-03-15 1811EDT Everybody Has Incoming||Outside, a host of 'sploderats - spaced out far enough to make picking them off a one-by-one the only option - became visible as they crossed the roadway between the drop site and the mountain. They were heading toward Taylor and team. HC soldiers advanced to positions of cover, but there are not en|

|2034-03-15 1805EDT Mountain Assault||The HC² and 288 HC assault on the mountain was costly, even for super-soldiers with a slowest running speed of 40km/h. 13 died on the way up, caught by heavy machine gun fire, mortar shells, and various robotic attackers. This left 275 to assault the base. The four HC2 showed their extraordinary ca|

|2034-03-15 1745EDT Chewie is fired on||The attack was a surprise to everyone on board. Chewie dodged most of the damage, but had to work hard, including using the BUMPS to stabilize the passengers.

|2034-03-15 1700EDT Council of Sophants Urgent Session||The discussion was intense and heated, but it was also mostly positive.

|2034-03-13 0100EDT Turns out Clanks is scary AF||The people of the world did not take big MechaJesus into theor hearts as the new messiah. Likely just as well, since the world was already turning into Shadowrun and didn't need a a shot of Paranoia to liven it up. As the monks and priests beat and stomped Clanks into glittery parts, a growing|

|2034-03-11 0945EST Jake Introspects and Chats With Mycroft||Jake has had a lot of time to think and heal and work with the interface. During this time, he has been thinking a lot more about what the clanks can do, what has been accomplished, and what can really result from becoming integrated with millions of clanks.
