Jessica Jones

History

Recent Events

Personality

Cranky and cynical, Jessica's work and past constantly invite her to see the worst in people. Nevertheless, she's got a big heart. She yearns for acceptance, and the rewards that come from forging deep connections with others. She struggles with addiction, depression, self-sabotage, raging guilt, and a host of other serious issues.

In fact, look up the word "issues" in the dictionary and you'd probably find her picture staring back at you.

Despite all this, she has a reputation for being someone people can go to if they need help. She'll tell you her primary weakness is she occasionally gives a damn. The truth is, she almost always does. She has a hard time turning away from people who are in trouble, in pain or in danger, primarily because in her heart, she wants to be a hero that the people in her life can be proud to know.

It doesn't hurt that she takes a lot of pride in her investigative skills, either. In fact, if asked, she'd tell you that's the one thing— maybe even the only thing— she knows for sure she will ever get right.

RP Hooks

Private Eye - Want to hire Jess for a case? She can help you find missing people, clear your name if you're in trouble, and more. Maybe someone hired her to find you, too. She's licensed in both New York and New Jersey.

Crappy Luck - It's really not unusual to meet Jessica right in the middle of some kind of chaos. Maybe some is going on right now. Maybe you've got the same kind of luck.

AA - Jessica's been a member of Alcoholics Anonymous since February of 2017. If you're in NYC and you're also a recovering alcoholic, you might have met up.

Harlem & Hell - Jessica's most often located in either Harlem or Hell's Kitchen. If you live or work in either place it's easy enough to run into her.

Gotham Guest - Jessica's business cards and websites state she's licensed both in New York City and New Jersey. She does sometimes work in Gotham and maintains ties there.

Metro-Curious - Metropolis seems to be the safest thing going for metas right now, but is it really? Jess is investigating, and is working on getting her Delaware license too. If you live there, a run-in could be arranged.

Character Sheet

MASSIVE MENTAL DEFENSES

Jessica is resistant, or even immune, to most (but not all) forms of mental invasion. Her unique physiology resists powers based on pheronomes, viruses, or biochemical responses, simply because she gained a tolerance to these sorts of invasions while under Kilgrave's control. She sought out the help of a wizard friend of hers to set a spell which can warn her if anyone is trying to use magic or psionics to push into her brain. This spell also begins a feedback loop: individuals who make the attempt start feeling pain in direct proportion to the amount of force they're using to make the attempt. Such attempts can even be fatal for the weilder if they continue to push. Attempts to remove the spell could be fatal as well. Jessica also has a great deal of willpower in her own right. This, combined with her natural fortitude, allows her the ability to stand firm in the face of almost any physical coercion. In short, Jessica Jones is her own woman, and woe to the person who tries to take her again.

POWER LEAP

Jessica Jones can leap tall buildings in a single bound! Kinda. She can certainly leap about twelve stories into the air. Just like some kind of demented grasshopper. And she falls with style even better than Buzz Lightyear! In the past she has manifested full-on superhero flight, but a hemorrhagic stroke caused by a sniper's bullet and a brush with death put an end to it. Her doctor theorizes that brains are the hardest and most complex thing to heal, and that hers sacrificed whatever it was in her body that allowed for full flight in order to help her build her way back to being functional. And alive. It's unlikely she'll ever fly for real again, but it's probably worth noting it was a thing for awhile.

SUPER STAMINA

Jessica enjoys far more stamina than the average human. She can stay awake for days at a time. Wedge herself into an uncomfortable spot and stay perfectly still for hours without having to worry about muscle cramps. She develops tolerances to drugs very fast, though if she's introduced to a new drug it hits her like it hits anyone else until that tolerance is built. She's largely indifferent to heat or cold, and doesn't really start getting uncomfortable when conditions are extreme.

SUPER STRENGTH

Jessica Jones is endowed with super strength. How strong is she? Strong enough to lift and throw a car. Which she usually doesn't, because throwing cars is a real douche move. Not strong enough to lift and throw an 18-wheeler.

WALK IT OFF

Jessica Jones is blessed with a healing factor. It's not the fastest healing factor ever gifted to a metahuman, but it's fast. Minor bruises are gone in hours. Major ones are gone in a day or so. Cuts and stab wounds take 3-5 days, depending on the severity. Broken bones are good in a week or so. She never gets sick. This power is probably the only reason she's still alive.

Miscellaneous

"You know I'm going to find out anyway, right? I have a habit of finding out everything. It's kind of my schtick. And now you've got me wondering what it is. Which means I'm going to start trying to figure it out. Looking for clues, asking endless questions. Eventually I'm going to find your secret Hello Kitty diary or whatever, and figure it all out anyway. So. Spill."
