Overview
Jazz agers, flower children, lost generation, beatniks, rockers, punks, nerds, hackers, lovers, generation X - whatever the designation, there have always been outlaws in our society who live in pursuit of autonomy.

At times they are revered for their roles as pioneers, challenging the unknown; other times people consider them lawless desperadoes and a dangerous presence.

Yet, really, it is only their exuberant music and an autonomy founded to express opinions different from those of others that set them apart from the rest of society.

The year 2071 AD. That future is now. Driven out of their terrestrial eden, humanity chose the stars as the final frontier.

With the section-by-section collapse of the former nations, a mixed jumble of races and people came. They spread to the stars, taking with them the now confused concepts of freedom, violence, illegality and love, where new rules and a new generation of outlaws came into being. People referred to them as Cowboy Bebops...

PROFILE: JET BLACK
Full Name: Jet Black
Age: 36

The ever steadfast Jet Black is a man who, with his old-world principles,lives at odds with this age's callous wind of change. His is a life of duty and compassion for his fellow man: "Abhor the sin, not the sinner."

A man of eclectic tastes, he takes pleasure in Goethe even as he indulges his passion for Charlie Parker. Although a compulsive gambler, Jet ordinarily finds peace of mind tending to his bonsai. He is also a competant cook.

In his younger years he was a member of the ISSP (Inter Solar Systems Police). Back then he was a hotshot officer, and was known by the nickname Black - "once he gets his teeth in you, he doesn't let go" - Dog. But he retired from the ISSP following an incident that left him badly injured and requiring cybernetic implants. Before too long, however, he had begun his life as a bounty hunter.

On Ganymede, a deeply familiar place to Jet, he rebuilt a second-hand space trawler into a spaceship he named Bebop. Since teaming up with Spike (they ran into each other three years ago), Jet has made good use of his contacts, the majority of which were made when he was in the ISSP, and is responsible for planning operations and gathering intelligence.

Jet's "baby" is a reconstructed Sack Fish, originally built as a catcher boat, called Hammerhead.
