Jeremy is a born and raised Londoner, who had dreams of video games and cops and robbers as a child. His parents, middle class and hard working, provided as best they could for him – and in doing so, inspired his dreams. By the time he had nearly completed his secondary schooling, and taken his GCSEs, he also experienced his first change. It was traumatic, worrisome, and as far from usual as one might expect. On the other hand, it was also tempered by the fact that his uncle had been watching him for years, and waiting for just that moment. Unlike others, he was left with his family for the few years left to them while he learned what his heritage meant and integrated with his new family as well.
The scores on his GCSEs were so far off the charts that he was a shoe in for Sixth Form. Unwittingly, he had also caught the attention of a branch of her Majesty’s Secret Service, and was quickly adopted into the higher education programs of MI-13. Necessarily, his parents fell away into more obscurity, which they accepted gracefully given his career choices, and in no time Jeremy had established himself as the child prodigy in the field of electronics and computing. Courting new technology like a love affair, almost everything took a secondary role. He continued to learn of his new found heritage, but kept it at arm’s length while computing began to take exponential leaps and bounds, and he along with it. By his early twenties, he was a top level candidate for IT Officership in the agency and had all but forgotten the world outside himself, and more importantly, the one that was slowly encroaching upon him.
MI-13 was happy to have their newest member once he had surpassed any education they could offer in a formal setting. By 22, Jeremy had outstripped most of their programmers and analysts, and was both creating intrusion applications and their requisite counter-measures for fun at home. All the while he had been climbing the ranks internally by offering keen insight in everything from software to hardware, theoretical thought to applied dimensional computing, and perhaps most importantly, emergency digital response to threats and terrorism. It was no surprise when he was offered a coveted position as a Senior IT Security Exploitation Officer – the youngest ever in the agency, at 24.
And yet, something was missing. Something pushed to the side, almost forgotten, calling to him at the most base of levels. His career was moving swiftly and in truly amazing fashion, but he was devoid of the happiness he thought it would bring him. Even the potential to become the youngest Director in Secret Service history wasn’t enough to drive him. Which is when he returned to the call of his blood.
Focusing more of his time between the Glass Walker tribe, the local Sept, and learning the history of his new family, Jeremy found peace. His inner calm slowed his career to some degree, but filled him with a fine balance between the excitement of technology and the tranquility of Gaia. While he freely admits to being much less successful in the area of tooth and claw, he does tend to engage with the happenings of the garou more often than the typical Glass Walker out of a sincere desire to keep his spiritual balance.
