The Jokaero are an intelligent alien species who resemble the orange-furred great apes of Old Earth known as orangutans. Though lacking any known form of language, they are capable of tremendous feats of technological construction and manipulation, and specialise in the development of weapons technology, particularly miniaturised weapons.
Born the son of Necromunda’s Planetary Governor Gerontius Helmawr and Heleana Jerico (which she later described as “just one of the many disagreeable things one has to do for the greater good of the Imperium”), Kal left the luxury of the spire for the life of a bounty hunter in the Underhive.
As well as hunting those with bounties on their heads, Jerico often has a bounty on his own due to his unorthodox methods, leading as often as not to trouble finding him. He resolves these situations using his trademark debonair swashbuckling style, relying on quick wits and his good luck more than brute strength.
Most recently, Jerico has been summoned uphive a number of times to fulfil various missions for his family.
