A drifter who hails from California, Jade is a professional bum without aim or direction in her life, but a dream of visiting Europe firmly in her goals. She takes temp jobs wherever she can get them to earn money to get her a little farther down the road, which is usually accomplished by walking down the interstate with her thumb out. Her skills include such things she's picked up as surfing, beach volleyball, and an uncanny knack of avoiding the come ons of lonely truckers.

More recently, she's made her way to New York where a variety of circumstances has led her to the discovery of Evolved people. Having met a number of them, Jade's world has become a menagerie of unusual circumstances and being on the run with her new 'sister', Lena. Though things don't seem to be going their way, the abrasive teen does her best to keep her chin up and soldier on.

Even more recently, the teenager has moved out on her own once more, having left the Petrelli safehouse, living apart from her 'sibling' Lena. Having managed to obtain her GED, she's now taking basic courses at a community college with money gifted to her by Jaden Cain. Don't ask her what degree she's going for, because even she doesn't know.

Trivia

miranda-cosgrove-drew-roy-icarly-07.jpg
  • Recently, Jade's name and history have been erased, much to her dismay. She was only mollified from beating her best friend with a hammer over the matter upon learning that their new identities made them sisters in the eyes of US law.
  • Jade isn't as cynical as she lets on, but she'd never admit to any inner optimism.
  • She doesn't show affection, per se. Instead, Jade prefers to verbally, and sometimes physically, abuse those she likes. So if she's snarking insults at you, it might be an indication that she likes you.
  • Her favorite food is shrimp, her least favorite? Chocolate. Seriously.
  • As used to Hollywood is of having actresses play younger woman, this might be the first time a woman's character is older than she is. (By two years.)
  • Jade was somewhat inspired by the character Fin, from Stoked. Don't watch it, it's pretty awful.
