Doctor Jain is a former West Tek employee and research colleague of Doctor Edgar Blackburn in Appalachia.


Jain was a college associate of both Dr. Blackburn and Dr. Farha, though he and Blackburn only became familiar with each other after they both went on to work at West Tek. Surviving the Great War, Jain was recruited by Farha to join Blackburn's research efforts on the Forced Evolutionary Virus, convinced of the need to adapt the human race for the hostile conditions of the wasteland.[1][2] When faced with the the immorality of their research, especially their human experimentation, Jain claims that he initially assumed their test subjects to be volunteers and only realized the truth when they had gone too far to stop.[3]

Dr. Blackburn was in charge of procurement, he told us they were volunteers! It was only later... but by then..."
