Jonesy is a hybrid creation, an artificially enhanced cat with virtual memory and AI implants. Physically, he is a cat. Intellectually, he is smart, capable commander. He perversely takes pride in his diminutive stature, the fact he is different from everyone else.
He has refused to have his voice altered to speak any of the common languages – preferring to use a hybridized system of purrs and meows that are translated for his crew.
Wherever he goes a rumor is quickly spread (possibly by Jonesy himself) that he is protected by several micro-drones – small floating machines that can kill instantly. As a result, Jonesy moves amongst the humans with confidence.
