Plot or ending details follow, it is advised you skip this section or page if you haven't completed the game yet!
Jones is one of the few human survivors of the premature Apocalypse taking refuge in Haven with other humans under the protection of the Maker Ulthane. At the end of the game, it was revealed that Jones was really the Horseman Strife in disguise.
Jones is an enigmatic survivor in the care of the Makers at Haven. No one knows who he is or where he comes from, not even those who protect his fellow humans. Save for, most likely, Ulthane himself. As the Black Rider Fury made her way to the safe-house for the last remnants of Humanity, he takes critical offense to Fury's callous dismissal of humanity when the Blackhammer asked if he was there to protect them.
He rather blatantly, in spite of the danger, called her out on being no better than the rest of the so-called higher beings in creation whom destroyed their world.
Going so far as to say this idiotic war made them all; Angel, Demon, Horsemen and even Maker looks so incredibly stupid as he fails to see just what it is exactly that they are all fighting for. Surprisingly, Fury was impressed by his fearlessness and opted to spare Jones instead of killing him on the spot.
Remaining largely a side character. Jones only ever makes snide remarks towards Fury whenever she interacts with him in the game.
It's not till towards the ending which he offers greater insight about the balance and how humanity was so thoroughly betrayed by those who're supposed to protect and defend it at all costs. He'll console the downed Fury after the revelation of her placation by the Charred Council and on what an all around rutty person she'd been. Jones saying this was good to acknowledge seeing as it means she's well and truly alive, coaxing her to meet up with Ulthan later.
After her calamitous battle and escape from the council.
Jones was present when Haven came under siege. He silently acknowledges Fury's epiphany about how Heaven, Hell and the Charred Council alike all wish to see humanity eradicated out of fear of what they would become. As she admitted they're pinning blame for everything that's wrong with the universe on them, he nodded in agreement.
Just as the Destroyer himself made an appearance leading the demon horde. Ulthane and the other Makers acted as a last bastion against the invading army.
Jones would stay behind and fight along side them barely brushing by Fury with guns in hand as she was recalled back into the housing by Ulthane himself, the two exchanging brief glances as he ran past. As Fury led the last of the Humans to their escape, the human made his final stand with the rest of the Makers against Vovin's armies. Having dispatch many of them with uncanny accuracy before revealing his true identity to that of the escaping horsemen. Looking back towards his sibling scant moments after she disappears into the reflecting pools waters.
