Jakita's main motivation is to escape boredom. Being the point person for the Planetary field team serves her well in this regard. A one-woman powerhouse, with incredible (though undefined) strength, speed, and a measure of invulnerability, Jakita served as the de facto leader of Planetary's field team in Snow's absence. She is the daughter of Kevin Sack, Lord Blackstock, and therefore has the genes of one of the Century Children in her blood, conferring upon her near-immortality. Her mother, Anaykah of the hidden city of Opak-Re, gave birth to Jakita back in 1934 (as shown in Issue 17). Placed by Snow with the Wagner family in Germany, the details of Jakita's childhood are still unknown. Snow's role in her upbringing is also unknown, though it's clear he kept tabs on her and offered her a position with the field team when the time was right.
