"The Leader," descendent of Jason of the Argonauts. Jay is 16 years old and the first of the teenagers to be located. He has an instinct for leadership and his preferred weapon is a xiphos with a retractable blade. His parents are under the impression that, far from helping to save the world, he has been shortlisted for a space mission and is at a specialized astronaut training school. (It is unknown if the parents or guardians of the other teenagers were given the same explanation.) Jay is of Greek heritage on his mother's side, and thus grew up with the stories of classical mythology. If the other teenagers are confused about a certain mythological concept, he usually explains it to them. He was initially unsure about his leadership role, as the others displayed obvious physical or mental skills to signify and cement their places in the group, whereas Jay's were more subtle. Jay takes his role as a hero extremely seriously, usually being the one who's always worrying about potential threats even when everything seems fine. His sense of responsibility and focused work ethic tends to drive the group mildly insane. Sailing seems to be his favorite hobby. He has very strong feelings for Theresa. In the first episode that she appears, he asks if she can read minds, which implies that he doesn't want her to know he likes her. The two of them share a passionate kiss in the Season Two finale. Jay is analyzed as the everyman, taking into account the well-being of his friends and respecting each and every one of their abilities. His mentor is Hera.
