History

Pre-RP

Originally her name was Jennifer Melsworth, a young girl with bright blond hair, her family is wealthy family that owned a big business in hardware and software products specializing in tracking and homing devices and based their lives in a capital city on Nepleslia. Not everything they do is legal, but then they have the money to get away with such shady practices and is only recently they began to clean their act up as Nepleslia became it's own faction.

She was the middle child of the family, as her older brother Gregory was going to inherit the family name and eventually went into the military, while her younger brother Henry was destined to work in the company, leaving Jennifer to become an actress to marry a wealthy Nepleslian. All this was planned out by her mother Merriam Melsworth, who was in control of family finances and welfare of the children, while the father Thomas Melsworth was generally busy with work and inventions to keep the company flourishing, and is in a way a slave to his wife. Thomas had created a tracking device that could be implanted along with cybernetics, and would not interfere with the body, or be noticeable, thus became popular with the middle class woman who believed their husbands were cheating on them and made a good profit. Later his wife got a government contract to make more advanced version for government officials who also wanted the tech, so that they could be found in case of a kidnapping.

When not doing studies, her mother often let her play with other kids, most being boys in hopes she would marry one of them to increase the family's fortune. Instead however she began to gain a boyish attitude, often they sparred with her and found her fun to be with. As for other girls she couldn't really stand being with the “princess girls” that she socialized with, for exception of one. A half genshin Elizabeth Merrith who was roughly the same age as Jennifer, both became childhood friends, and was the only one Jennifer could tell everything to. When with Elizabeth they could do things that Jen's mother would not have allowed, as Elizabeth's parents were not at all strict, especially with her highly exceptional grades. Jennifer knew she had to hide her new personality when she accidentally said some slang in front of her mother, afterwards she used her acting lessons to hide her true self, behaving like the perfect daughter. Mrs. Melsworth became more strict to what boys she could meet, picking ones she had plans for arranged marriage, but did not disconnect Jennifer from Elizabeth, as she was a friend and business partner to her parents.

On her 16th birthday, Jennifer made a deal with her uncle Kyle Jackson that would aid her escape from the life she was living in, and join the military. After writing a note of apology, she handed it to her Elizabeth in a book and made her promise to read it on a specific day. Some days later she was picked up by Elizabeth to visit her house, upon arrival, her fan club with the boys had set up a ride for Jennifer to meet up with her uncle, and also those who knew how to fight helped knock out the guards. As Jennifer left the boys wished her luck, leaving Elizabeth befuddled, at least until she read the letter in the book. It was essential that it took place near Elizibeth's place as her family employed fewer guards, not that they would be a target of any attack. Later the boys would all be grounded for a month, though Elizabeth was forgiven. All this time she did not suspect that Jennifer would do something this crazy or drastic, assuming that the sheltered girl would stay sheltered.

Kyle Jackson had everything planned out ahead of time, Jennifer's escape took place on her 17th birthday, one year after the deal and he had Jennifer's papers set so that she would go missing, and assume the new identity of Jen Jackson. An adoptive relative with purple hair who made a good candidate for the military. This act was not out of outright kindness from Kyle, as this was to be his bargaining chip against Jen's family so they could no longer keep him in blackmail against his suspicious connections with the reds, as he was in business of selling weapons. His cover up of Jen's identity was not perfect however, and a well trained intelligence officer can find a trail. To anyone else however she was now Jen Jackson.

To make this work however Jen had to join the military, Kyle had very few connections outside of the military and could not guarantee Jen's disappearance on the world which she could be easily identified. While Jen rather become a civilian not trapped by the strict rules of her mom, she agreed to these terms, not only as an escape but a way to explore space she would never seen in her old life.

Jen then went to boot camp for extensive training for about 2 years before being assigned somewhere.
