Personal History:

Jonathan's early life from 1926 was not very interesting, having moved from Taiwan to the contiguous United States during the onset of WW2, he has always had a knack for vehicles and other mechanical objects, something his parents (both of whom are farmers), did not necessarily agree with.

During the Second World War, Jonathan, enthusiastic about joining the fighting, lied about his age and joined up with a unit to perform in operations across the Pacific. Prior to being shipped out, however, he was instead assigned from a combat unit to an engineering unit that would stay behind front lines maintaining vehicle pools and equipment.

Sour but not dismayed, Jonathan was eventually shipped to the Pacific, and assisted in keeping vehicles in fighting condition, as well as assisting with mechanical maintenance on the makeshift bases and airfields scattered throughout. Having received some formal training in makeshift vehicle repair, Jonathan excelled at modifying damaged vehicles and keeping them in top fighting condition, earning the respect and admiration of his comrades and colleagues.

After the combat was finished, Jonathan went to school for a few years to get his degree in engineering, but quickly returned to being a technician instead. With the creation of the Foundation, he signed up, with some academic and military experience behind him.

Miscellaneous:

What he looks like (minus the headset):

Jon is predominantly left-handed, but has learned to be ambidextrous.

During the fighting, Jon was caught up in a blast that ended up destroying his vocal cords. At of this day, he speaks silently and softly.

Jonathan reached the rank of Technical Sergeant while serving in WW2 - therefore, his full title would be T/Sgt J. Zhao.

Relationships!
  • Luvi: He and I can get alone on a lot of things, especially relating to loss. I like him.
  • Emily: She looks out of place within this mess of an organization, but that is probably why others protect her. For some reason, I feel compelled to do the same. Reminds me of Minase.
  • Prof Monday: He seems trustworthy. Maybe I can talk to him later on.
  • Mathias: That man creeps me out, and has no qualms experimenting on his fellows. I may have to shoot him someday. However, he does have a nice typewriter.
  • Capt William Stykes: Man seems a tad bit unstable, even for an officer. However, he is rather easy to get along with.
