Despite being closer to thirty, Jonah is often mistaken for being a teenager still. He has found his youthful looks to be a boon in Intelligence field work because no one would suspect a teenage boy of being a deadly assassin. With brown hair and brown eyes, Jonah could be from any Earth continent and easily can assume accents from each. His wiry frame hides a well muscled machine that is easily hidden beneath baggy clothes. As per Intelligence regulations, he has no tattoos or marks which are easily identifiable aside from those he was born with or those he adopts for his assigned missions. Also in accordance with typical intelligence operations, he can change his appearance rather easily. He can often be found wearing his hair short or long, sometimes with a mustache but often without and frequently changing his eye color. One would be hard pressed to identify him from one day to the next during mission operations.
Jonah is proactive, tending to initiate events rather than respond to them. He to act independently and he is capable of planning and undertaking very intricate schemes, particularly covert intrusions. Jonah prefers misdirection to confrontation, as is expected of a covert agent, and will do his best not to endanger innocent bystanders. Jonah is extremely observant, with an almost-photographic memory, and his ability to make profound deductions with limited clues is very impressive. He is also very good at hiding his reaction to critical information. He often wins people over quickly by virtue of his charm. He is also incredibly intelligent, and almost recklessly daring in his missions. He is highly cunning and extremely astute and calculating, especially when it comes to knowing his enemies.
Most of Jonah's history has been classified by Starfleet Intelligence after his recruitment and post-bootcamp training. What is known is that he was born and raised, rather normally, in a northeastern city on Earth's North American continent. His parents have been described as bland and unassuming, his father a construction worker on city payroll and his mother a part-time school teacher and homemaker.
Deciding to join Starfleet Academy at the age of thirteen, Jonah began studying subjects which would ensure him a place in the Academy when he was of appropriate age. At seventeen, he took the placement test and failed the psychological testing phase. His next step was to join Starfleet as a non-commissioned officer, enduring twelve weeks of Starfleet bootcamp and twelve more weeks of A-school training.
During his first quarter, Jonah often exceeded expectations and was identified by instructors as a crewman worth watching. He was also surveilled by Intelligence as a prospective agent. In his third quarter, Jonah was abducted from the barracks and ushered into a life in the service of Starfleet, but not as a celebrity. He would soon learn his name would be forgotten and he would never be a Jean-Luc Picard or James Kirk. His life would be dedicated to service in the shadows.
For three more years, Jonah was trained by Intelligence, but without the fanfare of graduation.
He has served as a deep cover field operative on dozens of classified missions over the last four years, but secrets have a way of piling up and living in the shadows cast a darkness on one's soul. Jonah hopes to take a more traditional role aboard the USS Archimedes.
