Jackson is a dead caravaneer who can be found in the Commonwealth in 2287.


A prodigy specializing in high technology, Jackson was the leader of a small trading caravan specializing in mechanics and trade[1] and the proud creator of the custom robots that traveled with him: Hurtz, Porter, Hurtz, and most notably, Ada.[2] His caravan came under the attack of the Mechanist, whose bots made short work of everyone, save Jackson's proudest creation: Ada. A robot who also doubled as a friend.[3]

While he was still alive, Jackson was a prudent leader, seeking out technology to harness and put to good use. He consciously avoided any run-ins with the Brotherhood, due to their tech retrieval policies. Avoidance allowed him and his crew to sidestep any confrontations.[4] His ill-fated decision to enter the Commonwealth was based on the reasoning that it would offer them plenty of salvage. Instead, it only brought them death.[5]
