Jarod Dawson is a main protagonist of The Invasion.

|Status||Engineer outside of the military|
Jarod was a part of the mining team at F.H. Cavern. During the alien ambush, he hid alongside Daniel from the hostiles. After Mark sent a distress beacon to Ark, the three of them escaped the cavern. He became a full-time soldier and formed a trio team with Mark and Daniel. Since the human/alien war, Jarod has left the military to study engineering at Trailblazer University.
Year of the Iron PantherEdit
Right after graduating from Trailblazer University, Daniel pays a visit, pleading to return in the line of duty. After some persuasion, Jarod consents to returning. The reunited trio sets off to invade the Iron Panther's base, arresting the terrorists, and securing the weapons of mass destruction. Afterwards, Jarod managed to land a career in engineering outside of the military (through Daniel's assistance, as promised).
Abilities and TraitsEdit
Jarod was the tech guy. He would often handle machinery when given the chance. This may be how he knew to activate an emergency air lock at Ark during an alien attack. Jarod had obtained a certificate in engineering after 10 years of studying at Trailblazer University. The exact field of engineering is unknown, but is presumably related to mechanics.
