QuestsCut contentIcon cut.png Rescue Jason Zimmerman.

Jason Zimmerman was the son of Jon Zimmerman, the mayor of Adytum, around 2161.


Jason was a rebellious son, disapproving of his father's alliance with the Regulators. He was mostly estranged from his father, living with the Blades. However, he was convinced he could make his father see reason and abandon the Regulators. To this end, he attempted to sneak into Adytum at night.

However, he was caught by a Regulator patrol. When they reported to Caleb, Jason's fate was sealed. The Regulators needed Jon's complicity and a casus belli against the gangs surrounding Adytum. Jason was killed, his head impaled on a stake near the gates to the settlement. Caleb and the Regulators blamed the death on the Blades, securing Zimmerman's support for their operations against the Blades.
