About 6" tall and 195 lbs, Jax is a strong man due to extensive training and the genetic manipulations of the Alliance Marine Corps. He looks fairly young and attempts to offset that with a short red beard.
Born 9/14/2162 to loving parents on the Human colony Mindoir. Growing up Jax was full of energy and rambunctious. At 8 years old Mindoir was attacked by Batarian Raiders who killed his parents and torched his town. Jax narrowly survived by playing dead outside his home and then hiding in the woods for 2 days before rescue came.
Soon after, Jax was shipped off to live with a distant relative on the farming world of Benning. Throughout his teenage years, he spent the majority of his free time shooting guns at handmade Batarian targets. His love for guns waxed strong all throughout these years and when Jax wasn't shooting he was stripping, cleaning and modifying his gun collection.
At the age of 18 Jax joined the Alliance Marine Corps and quickly excelled at marksmanship with all weapon types and was the one to go to for any modifications you may need. Jax participated in limited combat operations but on one particular operation, in a prolonged engagement with Batarian pirates dug into a base on a distant moon, Jax made a 5 kilometer run from the F.O.B. to the front lines laden with weapons and ammunition for the overwhelmed marines. Due to his efforts the marines were able to charge forward and secure the base and defeat the pirates. From this time on he was often referred to as "The Cavalry". Soon after this at age 21 he was recruited into the N-School program. Over the next two years he reached the rank of N6 where they test you in the most rigorous combat scenarios and that's when he was sent to be a part of GUARDIAN.
Jax was assigned to the CSV Muramasa. He is currently involved in the ship-wide event CSV Muramasa: Every Breath You Take.
Jax is known as an energetic man particularly when it comes to things that go boom. He is generally funny and sarcastic. Jax is accepting of most alien races but has a particular dislike for Batarians due to a particularly traumatic experience as a child. He can be slow to anger but once he's angry he can be hard to cool down. Jax has grown to care deeply for his squadmates as he has seen the damage that dissension can do on the battlefield. He has lost friends before and has vowed to do all he can to not lose another.
