History

Lieutenant Jane Pattersol is the posthuman guardian of the Yellowjacket missions; she is a USAF veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan now working as a mercenary for Georgia Tech. Jane accompanies most missions into the ruins, flying alongside the insertion and retrieval helicopters, providing aerial reconnaissance during the mission, and acting as air support in the event of a firefight. Jane herself has no powers, but she wears a sophisticated suit of battle armor with an insect theme, referred to as "the Yellow Jacket".

The international celebrity and crime-fighter known as Manticore earned one of her PhDs at Georgia Tech, and much of the work that went into her armor and flying platform was done in Atlanta. After her doctoral program was complete, professors and grad students continued to refine her work and, from this, a new system of battle armor was designed. The first person to don the Yellow Jacket was Judy Westmoreland, a grad student who used the Jacket to help rescue innocent victims of Paragon’s attack. Judy was incinerated by the hero's Para-Vision and the Jacket was severely damaged.

Six months later, however, one of the first science teams into the ruins located the lab in which the Jacket had been designed and retrieved its schematics and metallurgical samples. The Jacket was rebuilt at a remote Georgia Tech facility and used to secure the mercenary teams which made sustained investigation of the ruins possible. Jane Pattersol outperformed a number of other candidates and become Yellow Jacket Jane.

Jane has become something of a celebrity among the USAF; her figure adorns a number of aircraft in the WWII "bombshell" style and she is featured in Air Force recruiting materials.

Powers and Abilities

The Yellow Jacket has insect-like wings which allow Jane to fly hundreds of miles per hour. The helmet includes a potent sensor array, and her strength and speed are both enhanced, and the system can seal against various toxic environments. The Jacket has no integral weapons; however, Jane carries a pistol as a sidearm, and when on a mission, she has access to firearms and portable heavy weapons such as assault rifles, grenade launchers, anti-tank rockets, and light machine guns, all of which she is highly proficient with.
