Jackie was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of two; his parents spent almost all of the fortune on developing a way to for Jackie to be able to be able to experience the world. For normal families this would be through physical therapy, mechanical aids. Jackie’s parents, rather than do the mundane used the cutting edge VR research that they were involved with at appoogle “Insert some old corporation here”. Ten years of hard work payed off on Jackie’s twelfth birthday he was uploaded into his own virtual realm. This uploading was a time before the Mimir, so the original technology used for Jackie’s uploading was no-where near as effective because of this the side effects of the fix was the death of Jackie’s physical body. The side effect caused the arrest of his Father for murder and the suicide of his Mother, but hey they were only physicals and Jackie had his family on the inside anyway. With the technology influx caused by the awakening of the machine Jackie found that his world was expended a million fold, he no longer had only the artificial constructs that he created to talk to but real people. The biggest event in his long life was the realisation that hey could effect robots and machines in the physical world. Oh the fun he will get to have.
Finally after all this time Jackie’s parents’ dream for him has became a reality.
Jackie is essentially a 12 year old with the acquired knowledge of a really old person, this means he has moments of wonderful insight and intellect, mixed with the impulsive nature of a kid.
Games wise I guess savant, with the timeline he probably will not be a member of the coalition, a ghost/echo in the machine. To interact with the physical world i was picturing no set form just what ever is around. The Zombie ape would be his first half failed attempt to make his own cyborg
