- "You're a foul creature! You are... For my lady's honor, I'll put you in your place!"
- ―Jake during Far Behind.
Jake Emerson is a character in the Airforce Delta series who appears as a main character and a minor antagonist in Airforce Delta Strike.
Jake was the 2nd Captain of Ekubadana Air Force. He was the leader of the Ecbatana Aviation Army's 2nd Squadron and the butler and right-hand man of Francine Davout.
Jake is a member of the Emerson family who have been servants of the Davout family, Francine's family, for generations. Jake became a pilot so he could continue that service when Francine joined the air forces. Francine and Jake went along with the Ecbatana's surrender to the O.C.C. as Francine wanted to continue being a pilot.
Jake is generally portrayed as calm and reserved, but gets angry when he feels that his mistress is in danger. He is extremely loyal to Francine and would risk his life for her. He is sometimes shown to be more down-to-earth and knowledgeable about the military than Francine.
Jake is a muscular man of slightly above-average height. His eyes are always closed for an unknown reason. He wears a black flightsuit like most of the other O.C.C. pilots and is never seen without his helmet and flight gear.
Events of AFD Strike
Jake first appears, along with Francine, in either the secret missions Lone Wolf or Far Behind. In Lone Wolf, when Francine sees John Rundal and asks if he is alone and says he must be tough, Jake tells her that is no big deal, calling her 'miss.' Francine tells Jake to stop calling her 'miss' and he apologizes. After some fighting, Francine is impressed with John's skills and tells Jake that he is great. Jake says it looks like John is alone and tells Francine that it should keep her happy. Francine tells John to give her all he's got and to bring it on and Jake tells him to let Francine have her fun. After some more fighting, Francine says this is great and she cannot get enough and Jake says it has been a while since he has seen her this happy and tells John that Francine is always hungry for a fight and tells him not to screw around while she is enjoying herself. After some more fighting, Francine tells Jake she will not forget this fight in a hurry and he agrees. She then tells him to find out who John is and he agrees to do so. After some more fighting, Francine says she is not looking for a kill and it is the chase she is after. Jake says with her skill, the chase might not last so long but Francine disagrees and says that John is different and she can sense it. After some more fighting, Francine says, "Pilots! Be careful or be dead!". After some more fighting, Francine asks Jake for tea as usual later and Jake agrees and mentions scones as well. Francine says she cannot wait and Jake agrees. After some more fighting, Francine tells Jake that these sights are a little too forgiving and Jake apologizes and says he will fix it as soon as they are back and Francine thanks him. After some more fighting, Francine tells Jake to look at the way John flies and Jake sarcastically says it is great and Francine asks if he thinks so and Jake tells her that maybe her judgement is a bit clouded and she disagrees. After some more fighting, Ken Thomas and Ruth Valentine suddenly show up to provide backup for John. Francine says, "Oh! Some friends perhaps?" and Jake says, "Backup...? Can't say our chances look too good, huh..." and Francine says this is not good and they have no choice but to disengage and Jake agrees and they leave the battle zone if they are not shot down. If Jake is shot down, he says, "Sorry, but I'm bailing out." and Francine says, "Ooh! Butler! Not bad!". If Francine is shot down, she says, "Damn! That's it! I've gotta bail!" and tells Jake it's up to him and Jake shouts for her and Francine says she'll be fine and tells Jake to just take care of this and he agrees. Ken and Ruth quickly show up afterwards. If Jake is shot down after that, he will say, "Dammit! Just lost concentration for a second... Bailing out!". In the debriefing, Jake meets Francine who says, "Phew...!" and Jake says she must be tired. Francine tells Jake nice work out there and Jake says it was not as nice as he hoped and wishes he could have backed Francine up more. Francine tells him he did just fine and says it has been a long time since she had such a worthy opponent (John) and that was a battle to remember. Jake tells Francine that she really must have been infatuated with John today and Francine says she thinks she has fallen in love and comments on John's amazing flying skills, saying it was battle art, and it was really a pleasure to fight with a guy like that. Jake warns Francine to make sure she takes care of John in the end, saying he cannot have anything happening to her. Francine says she definitely plans to win eventually, but with a guy like John, just chasing each other around is half the fun. Jake tells Francine not to toy with John too much, saying he does not want her father getting concerned about her. Francine tells Jake that he is a worrywart and Jake says that worrying is his job. Francine then says she will take care of John the next time they meet and says she can see him going down in flames after a glorious battle. Jake says he would prefer if the battle did not get too "glorious" and he would rather take care of things himself actually. Francine tells Jake not to mind all that and tells him to find out who John is and Jake says he already put in a request for information and he doesn't know if they'll find out anything though. Francine says John is her next target, the man she is going to shoot down, and she at least has to know his name and tells Jake to tell others to hurry and Jake reluctantly agrees. Francine says, "Just you wait, my wolf-like hunter. I'll be there to take care of you soon. Don't let anything happen to you before that!" and the debriefing ends.
