Jackie is a good natured but can be a bit emotional at times. The discipline training which she was given by Megan mostly lets her keep those emotions in check but sometimes she finds it hard to control herself. At times, she can be a little over-talkative with those she does trust.
Like most knights, honor is quite important to her. She believes it is extremely important to protect those who are unable to protect themselves. For her, that is especially poignant because she was raised in a small village and realizes just how much they are at the mercy of those with more power than you have. Knights are in many cases the only ones who will fight back.
She does not have any real hatred of the Coalition but knows how much to extremes they will go and how that you have to be careful when dealing with them. Mages are mostly just folks to her. As well, creatures who are not human are just people to her with some good and some bad. Demons and many monster races should be treated with fear and caution.

Character History:

Jackie was the only child of farmers a couple of hundred miles to the west and south of the city of Tolkeen. The area is not widely settled but there are a sprinkling of tiny settlements. The frontier spirit was extremely strong in the village. Like many areas in the west, the Cyber-Knight is looked up to and is almost worshiped in many ways. Growing up, Jackie was in many ways your typical tomboy.

When Jackie was around fifteen years old, the village was attacked by a group of bandits. While the village had some weaponry, they were overmatched by the bandits. While they could hold off the bandits from destroying or taking over the town, they could not harvest their grain and virtually all of their livestock had been killed. As a result, the village was close to being starved out of existence.

Before the village, a savior arrived in the form of a Cyber-Knight named Megan Smith who was leading a group of well trained adventures. They were able to defeat the bandits, killing most of them and chasing off the rest. Of the course of her adventures, Megan Smith had become extremely famous and the village took her breaking of the siege as almost a miracle.

Jackie had always dreamed of becoming a knight herself and asked Megan if she would take her as an Apprentice. Megan was still pretty young herself and never had an apprentice before. Still, something about the girl intrigued Megan. Still, Megan felt bound to ask the girl's parents. It took a lot of Persuading by Jackie but finally they agreed. Of course this was just the start. Megan tested her thoroughly both physically and morally. Megan had heard stories of blackguards and did not want to produce one herself.

The training of an apprentice, especially when you have duties of you own, can be just as much of a learning experience for the knight teaching her apprentice as for the apprentice herself. Likewise, Megan learned much in teaching her apprentice how to become a knight. Of course the training was incredibly challenging for Jackie but she was able to persevere.

As it happens, Megan got a second apprentice. Her name is Sorcha Caraway but also goes by the name of Spitfire. About the same age as Jackie, She was a potential burster who did not want to follow the most common path but wanted to be knight. As you might expect, especially since they were both teenagers, there was quite a bit of rivalry between the two apprentices at first but eventually they became close friend and almost like sisters.

The two girls graduated from their apprentice training at almost the same time. The two girls made an oath to aid the other one at times of need. Megan had a number of years before received a Samurai Rune Katana after one of her rescues. She carried it for a number of years but decided her apprentice needed it more. The sword is named "Sakura" due to the cherry blossom design running along the blade.
