Jonathan was born on a cold and grey Chicago morning, causing his mother's death - that is, if you ask his unaffectionate and alcoholic father about it. Jonathan does of course not remember any of this, but he does remember having to take care of himself most of the time. Yeah, his father made sure he went to school, made sure he was dressed and fed, but was emotionally distant and would mostly watch TV when not at work, never showing the kid any kind of affection. Growing up like this, Jonathan quickly learned to shut people out of his life and rarely ever show any emotion under any circumstance.
Intelligent, but nearly a social recluse, Jonathan had a hard time interacting with people as he never knew what was expected of him. Good grades throughout all his years in school, but no idea what he wanted to do with his life, he worked odd jobs after graduating from senior high, until he applied and was accepted to the Defence Intelligence School in 1988.
