The Search for the Ocean Shard

a comic by Thomas Hotka and Trey Petersen

Jonathan Smith

Height: 5′ 7″

A young man on the run from the NIX.

Jonathan used to work for a delivery service, and would occasionally compete in small martial arts contests. To earn some extra cash, Jonathan volunteered for a testing program with the large corporation, Geomech.

The tests performed on Jonathan and the other unwitting volunteers were illegal and immoral. Nano-machines were injected into Jonathan, which activate when adrenaline pumps through his system.

The effects proved fatal in most subjects, but Jonathan and a handful of others escaped the Geomech labs.

Until recently, Jonathan tried to lay low and make money for food competing in underground fight clubs, until the Nix discovered him there. Now he is on the run again.
