Jade started off studying business in Academy with the hopes of getting a high-paying job with a major bank or commercial institution. She then discovered that Alphas have no access to advanced business skills. Depressed and aimless, she fell in with the Russian mafia (Conoco), and spent most of her time in nullsec after being repeatedly reminded that highsec is not safe if your corp is in four wars. Eventually, frustrated by the language barriers (knowing English, German, Japanese, and Mandarin isn't enough?), she began searching for a better home and settled on Signal Cartel.
