Growing up, Jones had been in a single parent household. His father had served in the U.S. Army and had fought against the Chrell. He’d died during the Invasion, during the war. Jones didn’t really remember his father, despite having been about six years old when his father had died. But a good chunk of that time his father had been away fighting the Chrell. When he’d grown up, he’d scored very highly on his ASVAB, and he’d enlisted in the Army. Going to Ft. Huachuca, he’d been trained as 35F, or an All Source Intelligence Analyst. From there, he’d served in the 101st Airborne and after he’d served his contract, he’d been recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D.
Nichalus created the character as a throwaway background character for a post with Mister Miracle, in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. thread. From there, I took the name and the general characterization and came up with a backstory and ran with it.
