With Jericho out in the US and the European release date literally days away, we can finally bring you the last in the line of 7 features on the Jericho squad members. Last but by no means least, we bring you a small intro in to Captain Devin Ross, the fearless leader of the Jericho party.
Ross is an army career man. He spent his youth rising through the ranks of the Army Rangers in many campaigns across such exotic places as Iraq and Afghanistan. In combat he earned the respect of his men, peers and commanders and was decorated extensively for bravery and leadership in the field. As a soldier, Ross believed in the three Ps - preparation, preparation, and preparation - leaving nothing to chance whenever possible.
For Ross, the realisation of his abilities surfaced under fire during a botched raid on a Taliban safe house, as those who fell around him were healed. Before this major turning point in his life, the paranormal was nothing but a swear word to him. He was nothing but a skeptic.
Relating the events in his field report, officials seized upon the opportunity to bring him in after persuading Ross his potential meant he could better serve his country in the DOW. He has proved an exceptional leader of men whose ability to heal makes the squad an unstoppable force. He maintains some scepticism towards his and his colleagues’ powers but as leader he uses any tools at his disposal to get the job done, whether he fully understands them or not.
Having undergone extensive training by the DOW Ross has mastered the art of healing; he can even cure a team mate’s wounds without physically imposing his hands, as long as he keeps visual contact. However, he is unable to heal himself. Ross's weapon of choice is a standard army weaponry, his assault rifle has a shotgun mounted on the underneath and certainly packs a punch.
Check out the video of Ross in action with his leadership skills, healing skills and sheer firepower on show in the short video below.
