Story: Dexter LeMoyne was a troublemaker with a lack of respect for authorities. He was a Navy SEAL but was kicked out after hacking Pentagon's National Defense Network. Instead of going to Leavenworth, he was assigned to Team 7 [9].

On a mission to the Transylvania with the Team 7 at the time, what was supposed to be a biological weapon held by a loosing faction in the Balkan was actually a nanotech alloy which was essentially a non-carbon based life form. In reality, Team 7 was supposed to retrieve or destroy the alloy before it fell into the hands of the Vampire Nation. The mission didn't go as planned, and Team 7 was exposed to the alloy which bound itself to their skin and acted like a living armor. Realizing something was wrong, Miles Craven ordered the supporting troops to kill Dane and his team, but Mother-One who had herself been exposed to the alloy before the team helped taking out the troops and save Team 7 [1].

After the Balkan mission, Dane and his team was approached by Armand Waering, who took them back to the States and tried to help them use their new golden armor [2]. As the symbiote had been developed by Waering industries [WetWorks Sourcebook #1], and Waering himself was connected to the Night Tribe and had his own agenda, the team was shortly after sent out on a mission to prevent the release of a viral agent by the Night Tribe. The mission succeeded in the sense that the virus was stopped, but Flattop and Crossbones were killed, and Grail and Dozer were changed [3,4]. Like the rest of the team, Jester's symbiote started changing him too. His body started being able to change shape [5]

In 1998, WetWorks, Grifter and Lynch were attacked by Rostov, a powerful telepath who was believed to have been killed by Team 7 [6]. Rostov was defeated, but after the fight Dane was tired of always being someone's tool and he decided that the team should go underground for a while to find a new role for WetWorks [7].

In 2006 when the team was seen next, Jester was still at part of the team [8].

Skills & abilities: The symbiote covering the body acts as a living armor and gives a low level telepathic ability towards the other carriers of a similar symbiote. Jester's symbiote also enables him to change shape.
