|Personal History||Jon came from a working class family in Bristol, England. He joined the British Army soon after school and eventually went on to Special Forces training and the Special Air Service (SAS) as the Iraq War was beginning. He served several tours in Iraq, including the Battle of Fallujah. While on patrol in Basra, his convoy was hit by an IED and Jon took shrapnel in the leg that ended his career and returned him to England to recover.
Dealing with PTSD and his experiences in Iraq, Jon fell into alcohol, frequently drinking until he blacked out. Jon had several run-ins with the law, as he tended to be a violent drunk. This ended when he came home one night to find his wife in bed with his best friend from the Army. Jon doesn’t know what happened. He remembers catching them and everything going black. He woke up with their blood on his hands and his wife and friend dead in the bed.
The trial was rather sensational, but Jon was defended by an unscrupulous defense attorney Rupert Gravelines, who managed to get a mistrial and the Crown decided not to pursue charges further. During the year in jail awaiting trial Jon made many changes, giving up alcohol and struggling to control the violence inside of him. While in prison, Jon was approached for recruitment by Nexus, but turned them down.
Jon went on to work for Gravelines as driver and bodyguard. The attorney represented several important clients, and many shady, grey legal and financial matters, including Neville Carlisle, a minor nobleman and custodian of his niece and nephew the Lord Edward Alexander Carlisle IV.
Jon formed a friendship with Xander’s sister Cecily and was very disturbed when Neville and Rupert arranged her committed to a mental institute so Neville could maintain access to her trust. Jon eventually aided Xander in helping his sister to escape and getting them out of the country, casting suspicion on a local Czech organized crime boss Vincent Zajic. He himself was accused of their kidnapping and presumed dead when he was shot escaping police custody, falling into the Thames.
About a year later Jon was working under the alias John Harris as a bouncer at a high end club in Reno, Nevada when he aided a young teenage girl against a local pimp and crime boss. He cared for the girl and helped her recover from her injuries at a local brothel owned by a friend. But the pimp wanted revenge and attacked them again, so Jon and Bethany took the offensive. They hit his safe houses and stole his drugs, money, and weapons, eventually ending the affair with a hit at his home, where they executed him.
Jon then assisted Bethany in planning the assault on the compound in which she was raised, and her cult leader father. Prior to the assault, however, Bethany drugged Jon and left him in the desert to protect him from what she viewed as a suicide mission. During the assault, Nexus arrived and Bethany Awoke. She and Jon were then taken in by the Awakening team.
