OC Project: Jason King
Jay is my favorite of all my OCs. I find him the most fun to write and his backstory is very fun and interesting for me.
I won’t give his whole story since it’d take too long, but basically he’s a veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was a sniper alongside Ethan Riley, who became Jay’s best friend in boot camp. Ethan did most of the spotting while Jay did most of the shooting.
During a mission, they managed to overlook an IED in their hide, and the building exploded. Ethan died and Jay was severely injured; his arm had to be amputated on scene.
He keeps a journal that was originally for recording his dreams. It’s very important to him, and is meant to help control his PTSD.
