Jaden reveal certain elements to why he is the way he is. He doesn’t have too much of history to go from. After awhile he met with Jonathan some more and Jaden revealed he had a brain injury before moving to Los Santos. He was in a coma and when he awake he moved to Los Santos without being getting a check up from his brain injury. Jonathan suggested you get a MRI and told Jaden he will contact Choi to set it up. A few days later Jaden met with Charlotte and she encouraged him to proceed with the MRI, because can help with his dilemma of how he speaks and identify his emotions.
He then met with William Thatch a day later and Jaden also revealed he’s been getting headaches and bad vertigo where he would pass out for 30 seconds. William then contacted Choi and she set up the MRI. It took a week to get the results back and during the week he met with Thalia . She comfort Jaden to look forward to the MRI and believes it can help with his condition.
Jaden also revealed to Thalia he was diagnosed with Schizoaffective disorder. She requested him to get the medical records and send it to her. Jaden did get the medical records but only gave her a couple the pages. It is unclear what is on the other pieces of the report but it might be something to look into. After the week of waiting, Choi texted Jaden and told him to get to Pillbox right away.
It has been revealed that he has a hemorrhage in his brain and bone shard stuck in his brain. Choi told him to make final calls. Jaden calls Tobi Argent and Ferst Temple. Jaden then went back to Choi and dressed up for surgery. Choi and the nurses softly sedated him and Jaden is still awake during the process. There was a small hiccup in the surgery but nothing to major. He did mention a name, called James and also his Mother and Twin. The surgery went well and he survived. Choi did place Jaden in Postoperative Care and Jaden slept for the rest of the day.
Jaden woke up a few hours later and Choi asked him some generalized questions about where he is and what year it is. It seems that Jaden is having amnesia and doesn’t remember a year from his surgery. He also had different demeanor and tone to him. He believed he was in Anchorage, Alaska and that his mother and twin is still alive. Choi then, recommends that Jaden get mentally cleared by a therapist to leave pillbox. Jaden waits in patient rooms and waiting rooms till a therapist comes along. He is visited by Justine Maway (Shadow) and they shared an interesting conversation. during mid conversation Jaden hears James speak to him, telling him not to trust Justine but also keep her close. Justine leaves and Jaden stays in waiting and sleeping at pillbox for half a day.
Royal came to Pillbox to talk to Jaden and she spoke to him, prior to meeting Jaden, Jaden and Royal have been acquaintances for months. Her brother, father and boyfriend is Jaden’s friend. She quickly notices Jaden’s demeanor and voice change. She then started to ask Jaden questions and it has been revealed that Jaden has been talking to James. She then decided to help Jaden gain his memory back and bring him to the car show at Tequilalas. He has no idea on who everyone is and where he is. Jaden was discharged soon after and constantly had therapy sessions with William Thatch and Jonathan.
On his last therapy session with William Thatch, it has been shown and revealed that James has been living as Jaden for the past year and James believed he was the actual core persona of Jaden. James advised William that Jaden is still not active due to his brain injury and the lack of memories Jaden have now. He also told Jaden that Charlie has been more active and been awake and it’s not Jaden. Furthering the conversation, James revealed that he is just a delusion and hallucinations of Jaden’s mental awareness and informational keep. Charlie is similar but in a way that is in a bad consciousness.
William Thatch and Jaden did take a trips to the beach and they exchanged words. Jaden talked William in his James persona that he is very regretful for what happened to Jessie while believing William is Jessie. Then Jaden snapped out of the delusion and dozed out. Jaden’s core self showed and was scared, confused and paranoid. He was having panic attack and James persona kicked in. He threatened William to not tell them about what happened to Jaden’s mother or twin and William drove Jaden to pillbox.
While going through this trial, Jaden has met with Mr. Smiley through August who was 51-50'd. He outreached to Mr. Smiley and really enjoyed his accompany. Even though Jaden didn't understand Mr. Smiley's vision, he wants to help him complete it. He entrusted Mr. Smiley with a ticket with 4 numbers in the back. He also wanted to take photo of his face to send to David to give Smiley Cult recognition.
Jaden is still searching for memories, so he calls random people from yellow pages. Maybe, one day.... He will be complete.
