History

Jack's grandfather was born in a small town near Houston. As a young adult, he started to work on an oil rig. Ambitious already, he got his scholarship for an engineering college the day his father died. He dedicated his life to his studies. Graduate, he built his company: Drake Industries. He became a millionaire by the age of 30, billionaire at 40. Drake Industries has become a multinational corporation, heavily involved with United States’ defense contracts and the production of munitions. He’s a genius engineer. He developed is own, very successful company: Drake Industries. It’s a major supplier for the US Government when it comes to advanced armament. Most of all, he is a master of political intrigues and a major financial player.

So poor Jack has a lot to live up to since he was being raised to be the next CEO of Drake Industries. Jack was raised by his parents who loved him very much but sadly he lost his father when he was only 8 years old when they were in a plane crash. Jack was the only survivor which raised a lot of questions and added to his isolation. Since his mother was raised to be a debutante (an upper-class young woman making her first appearance in fashionable society), she was unable to be a proper mother and relied on her dead husband, the maids and her father aka Jack's grandfather. No one noticed Jack was getting stronger in an unnatural manner since he was isolated from others and his strength was never tested. Jack is a nerd at heart but is under a lot of stress by his family to be the next successor in his grandfather's company. He has been forced to train and learn in a stressful environment with very little experience in social skills. He was not allowed to make friends or especially a female friend. All his friends and future wife have already been picked out for him. Because of this he has a hard time talking to others properly and prefers his private time. Jack secretly likes anime and manga involving romance, computers and learning programs. Before his 14th birthday his powers were revealed when an assassin tried to kill him and his grandfather during a business trip but was thwarted by an angry Jack who absorbed the bullet hits and crippled the assassin with a powerful punch. After that Jack's grandfather enrolled Jack into "The Academy" so he could learn to control his powers. Jack is still on the fence by this but is will to try to learn to control his powers and maybe gain some freedom from his grandfather at the same time.
