He is a former labor union chief and opposition leader. He talks to the player about how he doesn't believe in good and evil, only power. He collected the remnants of the collapsed government's army to stand against the UFLL. The player must accomplish this goal by whatever means necessary, even if he has to succumb to the immorality of the warring factions and the Jackal himself. They are able to distract the enemy as well as make them aware of the player's presence. After fighting through waves of militia, the player eventually has a choice to either complete the Jackal's first objective first, or his second first eitherways, both have to be completed. The map editor uses a real-time rendered freecam view, without a heads-up display or other screen elements such as a hand-gun combination. The second novel acts as a prequel of sorts to the game, with the plot focusing on Paula, a war veteran-turned-mercenary, and her struggle in the diamond conflicts and civil war which are the focus of Far Cry 2.
