I speak today in an hour of national peril and national opportunity. We shall have to test whether a nation organized and governed such as ours can endure. The outcome is by no means certain. The answers are by no means clear. All of us together--this Administration, this Congress, this nation-must forge those answers.
My remarks, therefore, will be limited. But they will also be candid. To state the facts frankly is not to despair the future nor indict the past. The prudent heir takes careful inventory of his legacies, and gives a faithful accounting to those whom he owes an obligation of trust. And, while the occasion does not call for another recital of our blessings and assets, we do have no greater asset than the willingness of a free and determined people, through its elected officials, to face all problems frankly and meet all dangers free from panic or fear.
Jackson Davenport was born and raised in the state of Georgia, a southerner through and through. He obtained a law degree from the University of Georgia School of Law and eventually became a Prosecutor Attorney, taking on the toughest cases of his time. He went toe-to-toe with organized crime families, took on White Supremacists and near single handedly increased the severity of punishment for underaged offenders. He would go on to become one of the most notorious judges of the state, so much so that he earned the name of Iron Jack.
When the RESONANCE came, Davenport was on the front line ensuring that laws would be put in place to hold their fragile society together. He helped forge the Southern Coalition and it was partly by his influence that the popularity of the Vanguard soared in the state of Georgia and flourished in the south. When Iron Jack entered his name in the running it came of no surprise who would become President of the South.
A large part of his campaign was elevating the pride of Humans in this ‘empowered’ world. With a genius level intellect and a mind blowing wealth of knowledge some often make the mistake of thinking him ‘inhuman’. In such cases Davenport never fails to remind people that just as sure as he born in the south, he’s Human through and through. That said coupled with the well known fact that he’s a staunch supporter of the Vanguard defines his platform. “There is no tolerance for those lacking human heritage in the south.”
With or without the title of President, Jackson Davenport is one of the most powerful and influential people in the Southern Coalition. He believes in the Tri-Americas as it stands and cares nothing of unifying the country in his life time. Iron Jack is all about fortifying his nation, making it’s laws ironclad so that future generations (should their hearts so easily bleed) will never be able to easily strip down and bastardize all his work. He strives to preserve the Human Race by tempering it with the strength of Altered Humans and pushing out the tainted Metahumans and Magus.
