Jack Talon is the gun-slinging, chain-smoking, womanizing brother of Shawn Talon. He was an Alliance Naval officer before he was dishonorably discharged near the end of the Alliance Crusades. Since then, Jack has spent his time roaming the galaxy as a freelance pilot and smuggler. His less than honest choice of profession has gotten him into trouble in many star systems and keeps him at odds with his brother Shawn. However, despite their differences, the brothers are very close having grown up together. Jack is known for his skills as an expert fighter pilot, keeping him constantly employed in the outer-worlds.
