On the eve of January 18th, 1996, Jesse Thorpe was born the second child of a suburban family in Long Beach, California. His family was decently well off and able to hold down a steady job, but Jeremy always wanted something more from his life. It just felt like something was missing for him, no matter what he tried. It was in his nature to go out and explore, not to just be content with what was around him. Most people like this would go and be the socialites, surrounding themselves with others to try and make up for what they lack in themselves. Jesse however, ended up with the people that weren’t into the legal things all too often.
This got him into a large amount of trouble, as he was often at the "wrong place at the wrong time." The local police knew his face, but that wasn't going to stop him getting all that he could from life while he was still young. There were far more illegal things Jesse had done that the police didn’t know about, and he wanted to keep it that way.
Yet, as he went off to university, that life started to fade away into the past. While studying for his degree in Political Science, Jesse decided that he was going to try and get into the political scene, but it ended in a way that he would’ve never expected: he became a wartime correspondent.
