Jasper is an aging GranolaGuy, living in the woods ''naturally'' with his wife, growing a [[strike:new]] immensely popular variety of pot that has a strawberry flavor. It is implied that he was left without a choice but to withdraw from society after his wife was tortured by the government. Jasper himself had a career as a famous political cartoonist, which also didn't exactly fly under Britain's new authoritarian regime.
