    Character Evolution

    Jariah has always kept the same personality throughout the comic book but his views on certain matters has changed. He continues to be loyal to his friends but his hatred for the jedi had passed since he met the jedi who killed his father. It was explained to him what kind of man his father was and that he tried to save Jariah. At first it was difficult for Jariah to accept but over time he managed to do so. He began seeing the bigger problems in the universe instead of just getting by every day.

After a series of events that lead them in a fight between Jedi and Sith, Syn found out that Cade was actually a Jedi. This of course sparked some anger with Jariah threatening to shoot his friends for keeping this all from them even though Jariah had his suspicions.

Jariah wanted no part in this but stuck with Cade nonetheless.  When the Sith found out about Cade's healing abilities to wanted to see this in action for themselves so they put Vong spores, the same that infected the Sith lord Darth Krayt, in Blue and Jariah. Cade managed to heal them and let them escape. He would join them later during a rescue attempt by Syn and companions. Later he encountered the Jedi that had killed his father, Jariah meant to kill him but after a short skirmish was overpowered by the jedi. 
    He was told that his father wasn't the man that Jariah thought he was and that the jedi merely meant to rescue the people his father was robbing. He also remembers Jariah as a boy, and how he failed to rescue him. Jariah realized that his father was indeed a bad man and his actions were his own. After a series of events that get them deeper in the galactic war Jariah sees the importance of it all and realize they'll never be left alone until the Sith lord is killed. 


    Jariah is one of the few people who knows how to handle Vong Weaponry and is extremely capable with a blaster. He's also a skilled pilot and a true charmer.
