Billy Lee Black and Primera's father, also known as Jessiah. A gruff and rash gun-wielding ex-Element of Solaris. He was once good friends with Sigurd, Citan and Ramsus, his fellow ex-Elements. He was well liked by all three of the other Elements. Ramsus seems to respect him a lot as he is willing to stand by and practically let him walk in and destroy the Etrenank Gate in Solaris. He was once even the commander of Gebler some time before Ramsus but he left the position to head down to the surface with his wife Racquel. Jessiah had a heated rivalry going with fellow Solarian soldier Isaac Stein (Later Ethos Bishop Isaac Stone), and it drove Stein mad that everything he did Jessiah did better at. He became an Element and Stein didn't, he scored the position of Gebler commander and Stein didn't, and worst of all he won the love of Racquel and Stein didn't. Jesse suffered Stein's eventual wrath when he followed him to the surface and used -Wels- to brutally murder Racquel, then swooped in under the guise of the benevolent Bishop Stone of the Ethos and consoled his children and turned Billy against his father. Hated by his children at first, Jesse ends up saving the protagonists throughout the story. He had his face surgically altered to mimic the appearance of an old friend from Shevat who was killed long ago named Joshua Blanche. He has also taken up dressing like Blanche in order to keep his friend's memory alive. Jesse makes a memorable entrance into the game's storyline by pointing his signature shotgun at Elly's head when he thinks she's trying to abduct Primera on the Thames. This of course is a misunderstanding and does a lot to quickly establish his "shoot first, ask questions later" characterization. When Jesse's past and the truth about the Ethos church are explored, Billy does a lot of soul searching and comes to the realization that his father was right all along in his own way. Jesse and Billy are able to reconcile their differences after defeating the villainous Bishop Stone once and for all. Billy's new mission, stopping Krelian, Miang, and the Gazel Ministry's plot to reactivate Deus and kill off all humanity drew them away from one another, but Jesse was always there to help when the need arose. Jesse is conspicuously absent from disc 2 of the game, leading to the inevitable questions about his ultimate fate.
