Character of the Week - Jak
Updated: Mar 27, 2020
Jak is the main protagonist of the Jak and Daxter series. From a silent meek boy to the angry and weapon loaded man Jak has torn through precursor ruins, bustling city, and the desert wasteland alike. Sarcastic and badass Jak has been a favorite character of gamers through the early 2000’s.
In Jak and Daxter, Jak was our loveable silent protagonist who faithfully gathered Precursor relics with the aid of his faithful buddy Daxter. In the next few games Jak turns into a dangerous, rage fueled badass from his Dark Eco transfusions.
Through all the torture he endured he still is a good man at heart who cares about his friends. The anger comes out in his fights with enemies, using his hand-to-hand combat skills as well as the plethora of firepower he wields.
In the end it’s revealed that Jak’s birth name is Mar, the same as the legendary warrior of old. But it seems that Jak really is Mar, who through a lot of going back and forth through time has saved the world, and built Haven City. For a solid 3 games of entertainment, Jak is Buck Naked’s Character of the Week!
