Educated at Bryn Mawr and Trinity College Dublin, LADY JAYE brings a touch of class to the G. I. JOE team, along with a tough no-nonsense attitude, remarkable skills with edged weapons, and a left-hook with no mercy. Ranger qualified, she maxed the intelligence course at Fort Holabird and has taught Russian, Urdu, Polish, and Afghani at the Defense Language Institute. LADY JAYE doesn't believe in the wig and makeup school of undercover. She believes in becoming the subject by intense immersion in speech patterns, body language, and general attitude. Of course, getting all of that stuff right in impersonating somebody like the BARONESS doesn't amount to much unless she also has the right leather body suit and the correct pair of glasses.
"The acting comes easy to me. I've been doing it since I was a kid, acting out my fantasies, relating to imaginary friends, the whole bit. What comes hard to me is the climbing, shooting, knife-fighting, and getting into people's faces with fists and feet. That's the rough part about undercover work: when the acting stops, the firefight starts."
