Jett Tanaka has wisdom beyond her college credits. She’s the Thumper’s conscience, even if she doesn’t look much like Jiminy Cricket. Her moral leadership changes what the Thumpers are all about. To the Thumpers, she’s an oracle.  Jett’s mission with the Thumpers is to convince them to find a non-violent path to redemption. Or at least to curb the worst of their violent impulses. Not an easy task.

The Wise One 

 

Jett Tanaka has wisdom beyond her college credits. She’s the Thumper’s conscience, even if she doesn’t look much like Jiminy Cricket. Her moral leadership changes what the Thumpers are all about. To the Thumpers, she’s an oracle.  Jett’s mission with the Thumpers is to convince them to find a non-violent path to redemption. Or at least to curb the worst of their violent impulses. Not an easy task.

 

Jett comes from a different place than the other Thumpers because she believes strongly in non-violence. Her role models are Gandhi, an Indian dude whom you’ve probably heard of, and Shotokan, a Zen Master Samurai, who believed competition and needless violence are contrary to the essence of Bushidō, the warrior's way.

 

Jett wants to find peace. If in doing that, she must fight evil, she will. But she tries to choose the peaceful path, which she learns does not always lead to peace. She wants peace of mind. She will avoid or hide from painful things. She’s like a chameleon who wants to avoid any confrontations.

In the Chronicles

 

In “Revenge Therapy” Jett is a conscientious objector sitting on the sidelines. The reason she went to a group in Revenge Therapy was not that she was raped, but when subway geeks groped her, she lost it and put three men in hospital. One ended up paralyzed. All because her fear let her training take over. She was a machine, not a person. Muscle memory did the fighting. She hates herself for it.

 

She begins the story in disguise. She is trying not to look like the famous porn star who is almost her double. She stays out of the Ramrod  Revenge when she knows she could have taken him down all by herself.

 

Jett is a chameleon, afraid to look good. The 5’5” Eurasian begins looking like a lump of clothes with a face like sandpaper. It is a disguise to keep her from being noticed. Her problem is she looks almost exactly like the woman voted the world's most beautiful porn star. She will emerge like a butterfly from the cocoon of her own making, to let herself be seen as the beautiful person she is.

 

Jett’s "she" shares the lead in “Prisoner and  Slave” with Turq. She is forced to reevaluate her beliefs under extreme life-and-death pressure. She will have a mad romance with the wild guerrilla explosives expert Hanish Sapper.
