Jack was a bastard son, born in Miami in May, 2003. But with his sudden appearal for his mother, she did not want him to fall into a crime family, so they moved, north, to Buffalo, New York. For two years Jack and his mother lived in peace, and hell, he got a new Daddy. His new father was a human, he worked for a living in a steel plant just south of the city. Things looked up for the family, and within a month of meeting this man, they married, hencing the name Imperial. After five years of having a dad, a dad who actually cared about him and his mother, his dad had to leave. He was drafted to help end the Iraq war. This war had lasted since he was born, but the president had kept it going until 2012, when all hell started breaking loose in America. A tyrant named Barak Obama was mistakingly put into office, and he turned America into a Terrorist Haven. Then every country came down on America; primarily Russia and Britian, they made sure Obama was taken out of power, and then the nine year war turned into a new Cold War, this one fought in America. Canadians, British, French, the UN, and NATO controlled the Eastern Region, and Russia, the Neo-USSR, and China controlled the Western Region. This led to another two years of bitter fighting, and by that time, Jack was eighteen. He signed up with the Civil Defense Service, using his raw skills to track down Communist Insurgentcy in the Promised Land. This was America's new name, and it was dubbed so in the nik of time. When the new government observed how fast this soldier learned and adapted to new weapons, they had an idea. He was asked if he wanted to become better, which he did, and so he was taken by the government to a testing facility. The East and West had made this in secret to test soldiers, make genetic changes, and make peace between them. Jack was one of three of these soldiers used. He was the only anthro out of them too. After more long and tedious months of poking into Jack's cells, his code was broken, and the American Scientists changed him to their will. He retained his normal figure, but they extended his strength, abling him to lift over ten tons. His stimina was increased to the extent that he could run over fourty seven miles per hour and jump as high as seventy feet. His intelligence was extended as well, to the point that he knew all that the humans knew. He was the ideal soldier, and his tests were done in three years. This was good, just in time for him to help humanity in its time of need. When his tests ended, he was given the rank of Colonel, put incharge of his three comrades, and sent to fight a new enemy, an alien species called the Locust, they originated from a place called Sera. It was a human colony, or it was thought to be. The Locust were the natural species, living inside of the planet, not outside. These were brutal creatures, having technology second to none, next to theirs. When the humans thought they beat them on Sera, after Marcus Fenix killed RAAM, they left Sera, but they did not count on them coming back to hunt humans on their own planet. Jack's Elite Squad was put into action, dubbing them the Coalition of Ordered Soldiers, after the C.O.G. that was on Sera. Along with the aid of every country on Earth, and the technology they stole from Sera, the C.O.G. and the C.O.S. were able to push back the Locust, and utterly destroy their space fleet, in one massive battle that nearly wiped out Earth's Space Fleet. Then, when it all ended, the U.E.M.C. was made, Jack was put in charge of it, and his old nickname dragged along side him, General Spades is what he was called.
