I originally thought about making Him a distant descendant of Manava Zabi, but thought better of it.
Name: Jeremiah Jackson (AKA: JJ)
Rank: TBD, Leaning towards Sargent/Chief Warrant Officer
Occupation: Mobile Suit Pilot.
Appearance: (Will include Picture when suitable picture is found) JJ stands at 6'3" tall, and has a slight tan. He is a bit heavy set. Has a thick beard trimmed to regulation, and short trimmed hair. Has a Tattoo of the Principality of Zeon Emblem on his left Shoulder blade.
Personality: Jeremiah is respectful, and diligent. He works hard, and tries to help others. While he is proud of his Zeon Heritage, he doesn't brag about it as there are still some bad blood tied to the Zeons, and he had to fight his way out of more than one Bar because of it. As well as get harsh treatment from biased Base/ship Commanders
Background: Jeremiah is the descendant of a Zeon Mobile Suit Pilot of the same name. Jeremiah Jackson was a Warrant Officer under the command of Captain Ramba Ral during the Zeon's occupation of Earth, and pursued the Trojan Horse across the desert until Captain Ral, and his Lover and Adjutant Hamon were killed. From there, Jeremiah was transferred to Odessa where he took part in the last great battle of Earth. Fighting in his venerable ZakuII J-type until the bitter last before being evac-ed into space. From there, Jeremiah was assigned an older model Zaku II F-Type while many of the newer recruits were given the newer, high maneuverability "R" models. In space, Jeremiah was assigned to the Squadron led by Shin Matsunaga whom answered directly to Dozle Zabi, Commander of Solomon. Jeremiah would be captured by the Federation, and spend the rest of the One Year War as a POW in a Federation Prison. There he found out that the rumors of the Federation's Brutality against Prisoners of war were far cry from the reality. Jeremiah would end up having his arm removed to prevent him from ever piloting a mobile suit again. While Jeremiah never stood out among the millions that fought on either side of the OYW, He was still proud of his achievements, and honored to serve under some of the Zeon's best commanders.
JJ looks back to his ancestor's military service with pride, and while he understands that the Zeon Leadership was corrupt, he knew that the common Soldier on the ground fought for the ideals that the Principality of Zeon were built upon. Independence from a Corrupt Federation Government that saw the Colonists as nothing more than second class citizens, and treated them as such. JJ also acknowledges that while Many of the Zeon's Upper echelon Leadership were in it for their own power. People like Dozle, and Garma Zabi were innocent of their Family's evil machinations. Both having demonstrated a belief in their people's desire for freedom. Yet, they simply were caught up in the winds of fate, and the curse of their family's name. Kycilia Zabi, while a cold hearted bitch, was still very loyal to her father Degwin.
JJ would graduate a Military Preparatory School, and enlist in the service. Working to be a Mobile Suit pilot, and is presently assigned to the Marcenas
