During Operation Intrude N313, Solid Snake learned of Jennifer's radio frequency from one of the POWs that he rescued. However, Snake first needed to gain her trust by rescuing the other POWs within the fortress. Jennifer then provided internal support to Snake, firstly by preparing a RPG-7V rocket launcher for him to use against the "Bloody Brad" cyberoids. Later, she unlocked a room for Snake containing a compass, and covertly supplied him with an antidote, both of which were necessary for navigating the northern desert to reach Metal Gear's hangar (the former due to a lack of distinctive landmarks within the 20km stretch of desert, and the latter because of venomous scorpions that inhabited the area). In return, Snake managed to save her brother from the mercenary Dirty Duck.
Behind the scenesEdit
Jennifer (ジェニファー Jenifā?) appears in Metal Gear, where she provides the player with essential equipment required for completing the game. This forces the player to achieve a four-star rank, by rescuing POWs in the fortress, so that she can be contacted over the radio.
Jennifer returns in the non-canonical sequel, Snake's Revenge, as a double agent working for both FOXHOUND and the unnamed terrorist group in the game. However, she eventually ends up having her cover blown by the terrorist group, an action that also resulted in Nick Myer's death, although Solid Snake manages to save her before he went to destroy Metal Gear 2. In the manual for the game, Jennifer is jokingly described as possibly being related to "Ginger from Gilligan's Island" and is referred to as "Jennifer X." The manual also implies that her secret codename was "Yr. Person." Likewise, because of a translation error, Nick's revelation made it seem as though Jennifer was actually spying on FOXHOUND for the terrorist group rather than it being that her cover was blown by the terrorist group she was spying on for FOXHOUND. Her appearance in the manual was also somewhat different from her appearance in the (Japanese MSX2) manual of Metal Gear.
The name Jennifer was reused for an incidental character in the Plant chapter of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. She is among the hostages in the Shell 1 Core's conference room. This version of Jennifer was also used in one of the Snake Tales, as a Secret Service agent. She is found in the same manner as Richard Ames is in Metal Gear Solid 2, with the pacemaker replaced by her cell phone. Some fans have speculated that the two characters are one and the same, though there has never been any indication that this is the case.
