this man grew up with parents who had a hands-off approach to raising him. This taught him to be open-minded about things, but he was never instilled with any drive or determination. At the age of 16, he lied about his age and joined the Imperial Armed Forces, and within a few short months he had been trained into a dangerous and formidable urban commando by the instructors on Merikon. After following the orders of his superiors and destroying a building, Jayme learned that there had been children inside, as well as enemy soldiers. He couldn't reconcile this indiscriminate loss of life, and went AWOL. He found himself drifting until he ended up on Rodaj, where he met T'Charek Haathi. She convinced him to join the Alliance, and Jayme was initially recruited into the Alliance's urban commando team. However, he balked at several missions and was moved to the Special Operations team, where he was reunited with Haathi as a shipjacker.
