Story: The earliest stories about Jake Holland is from his days in Operation: Knightstrike. In the late eighties Dutch worked for CIA's elite death squad Operation: Knightstrike, along with Battlestone, Al Simmons, Chapel, Duke, and Peter Frehley [3]. At the same time he worked for Giger who ordered him to kill Battlestone, which he did [1]. This was apparently wiped from his memory later [2].

Dutch was approached by Marcus Langston who wanted him to join Youngblood in order to defeat Giger [4]. After Giger was defeated Dutch stayed on the team.

Following the diaster with Crypt attacking Youngblood, Team Youngblood was send on a mission to save a media mogul. The mission was a set-up with reporters running around messing up the whole operation. In the confusion someone shot the media mogul and one of the reporters pointed Dutch out as the shooter. The immediate assault of reporters made Dutch confused and he ran away, making himself look guilty [5]. He was last seen on the run trying to clear his name.

Skills & abilities: Dutch is a cyborg with a range of implants, acting both as armament and strategic units [6].
Equipment: Apart from his cybernetic implants, Dutch has a head gear containing a device called R.T., allowing him to interface his implants with other computers.
