DR. JADA BLACKMAN COLE (20s): Jada's mother died when she was only 7. An only child, Jada was raised by her father, a neurosurgeon at John Hopkins University. As the crew joins Assurity, we see that Jada and Zeke are a ''pair''. When Philex-B, the ship's female android, is seen as a competitor for Zeke, Jada has a jealous fit bringing about a serious riff between the three. At times unreliable, she is instrumental in helping Veronika manage her delirium and competent in getting the DNA samples back to Earth so that the cure may be produced.
