Jake (Japanese: ジョン John) is an Orange Star CO. He is young and energetic, as well as a top notch Tank commander. His specialties are the wide-open Plains on which both his Ground and Air Units get a firepower boost. He has no real weaknesses, and, as such, is a good CO for beginners.

He appears in the third game and has a soft spot for Sasha. He is friendly, shown when he convinces Hawke to join the celebration festivities with the other allies. He has a habit of speaking like a DJ, but all in all, he is a solid CO.

Campaign, Pre-Battle

Final Battle

"All of Omega Land has got my back!"

(with Jess)

Jess: "Hey, Jake? Let me give you one final piece of advice. You said you fight to defend others, right? Well, you sometimes must defend yourself. If we lose you, that would make the people back home... and me... sad. You get me?"

Jake: "Yeah, Jess... I gotcha. Thanks. For everything."

(with Rachel)

Rachel: "You know, none of these missions have ever been easy. Even the early ones. I've cheated death a thousand times, and sometimes I got so scared that I cried... But... You've always been with me. Whether we're on the battlefield or in some meeting... You play it cool, but you've always backed me up."

Jake: "Ah... well... you know. I mean... I have to... uh... follow orders and... stuff."

Rachel: "You made me happy. I mean it! It was like... having a younger brother."

Jake: "Wha? A younger brother...? ...Huh."

Rachel: "What, you're not happy with that?"

Jake: "No, dude, it's fine! Wait, I mean... I don't mean dude... I mean... Oh man, I'm screwing this up..."

Rachel: "Hee hee! Well then... This will be my last order as your CO... you must make it out of this battle alive! And... Bring your report to my office when you're done... OK?"

Jake: "...Yeah! Let's do this thing and go home alive!"



"Get out the plates, 'cause you just got served!"

(with Jess)

Jess: "We're the best team ever for tank battles."
Jake: "It's true. No one can match us."

Jess: "I see... Results improve depending on your partner..."
Jake: "Yeah, you're the bomb, Jess."
