After both of her parents were killed, the siblings were taken to a secret academy. From a very young age, she excelled from other children with her skilled abilities.

When the children were freed, Alice and her brother were adopted by an American soldier, Ellen Briggs, who gave them new names: Remi and Roman, the three of them sought to defend their country from its own government.

A series of events, one of them being part of a terrorist organization, took Remi to join the army in order to be part of a black-ops project, her return from Afghanistan meant the beginning of one of the most elaborate and important plans to Sandstorm.

Season 1

Life in the FBI

Jane Doe, was left in Times Square inside of a duffel bag under mysterious circumstances with her body completely covered in intricate tattoos and no memory of who she was. She was taken to the FBI in order to be recognized by Special Agent Kurt Weller, whose name was tattooed on her back as one of the most prominent tattoos in her body. 

Upon her arrival, Jane was submitted to a series of tests, one of them was performed by Dr. Robert Borden who determined that her memory was completely erased after she was given a high dose of ZIP, which caused an induced state of permanent amnesia. 

Kurt Weller became the lead agent on the Jane Doe case and assigned Agent Patterson the task of scan all of Jane’s tattoos as well as run DNA tests, however no dental records or identity could be found into the FBI or any database. 

During the course of the investigation, Jane was able to read and understand a Chinese tattoo located under her left ear that led the team to their first case. Patterson also identified a hidden tattoo as a Navy SEAL insignia that indicated that Jane was part of their special operations unit. 
« Someone did this to me, took away my whole life, and I can't do anything. »
Jane to Borden
Once the team and Jane discovered that each of her tattoos was a clue to solve a corruption case in the United States, Bethany Mayfair and Weller agreed to make her part of the team to be armed on the field and become an active member of the Critical Incident Response Group
Marcos (2)

Jane running the shooting course with Marcos.

When encountered with familiar situations or people, Jane is able to retrieve memories from her past life. One of the first memories she had was running a shooting course with an unknown man. In an opportunity she remembered being taken by a man at a young age to what appears to be a basement full of malnourished children. However, the key memories she retrieved, but never spoke of with her team, were the ones she was shown as Remi attending a memorial to keep an eye on Kurt Weller.
« We were climbing a tree in our backyard. I was above her. I stepped on her hand accidentally. She slipped. She fell, cut herself. It left a really big scar on the back of her neck. Jane has the same scar. Same eyes. She's the right age. »
Weller to Mayfair
When a familiar scar was found at the back of Jane’s neck by Weller, Bethany Mayfair ordered Patterson to compare Jane’s DNA to Taylor Shaw’s, an old childhood friend of Weller’s who went missing at the age of 5. When DNA tests confirmed her identity as Taylor, it meant a huge revelation for Jane and Kurt, his sister Sarah and his father Bill, who was accused of kidnapping and murdering Taylor.

A few days after being located in her safe house, Jane was attacked by the man from her first memory who broke into her apartment to move her to a safe place and to warn her that she shouldn’t trust “them”. When the man was about to speak, he was shot to death by a sniper from across the street.

Meeting Oscar

Aware of Jane’s arrival to the FBI, Thomas Carter, Deputy Director of the CIA, expressed his concern about the tattoos to Bethany Mayfair, after he realized they could directly link them to Project Daylight. After harassing Jane multiple times, he finally kidnapped her and tortured her by waterboarding in order to get information about her and her goal inside of the FBI, however, the only memory Jane could retrieve that night was about her time in the army and hearing Carter mentioning Orion

Before Carter could say something else, he was shot to death by a man who showed Jane a recording of herself as Remi asking her new self to trust Oscar and explaining that the reason of her memory wipe was done after she ordered to do so as part of a plan.
116 task

Jane swapping Mayfair's pen.

Oscar showing Jane the video was done with the solely purpose of gaining her trust on him in order to perform a series of tasks to which she refused. However, Oscar threatened to get Weller killed if she didn’t cooperate and Jane reluctantly agreed to commit a series of small missions inside of the FBI such as replacing Bethany Mayfair’s pen, placing a GPS device in the team’s car and deleting some files from the FBI’s servers. 


Remi giving Oscar her engagement ring back.

Working alongside Oscar, Jane retrieved some memories of their time together, however, one recurrent memory was the one of her breaking their engagement after agreeing to be sent to the FBI. This memory brought Jane and Oscar closer, although Jane never stopped having some reservations towards him.

The Truth

When an investigation held by Jonas Fischer accused Jane of being a Russian spy and killing Thomas Carter, Jane realized that she was too involved with Oscar and his secrets and lies so she reconsidered working for him but he threatened to kill Kurt Weller if she refused to cooperate. This led Jane to continue performing his missions and to develop some induced feelings for him. 

An artist received an anonymous order to paint a burning rose, the same from Jane’s tattoo, to drag the attention of the FBI to the artist’s gallery and kill Jane as a result of an explosion; however the explosion injured Weller instead and Jane left the team in pursuit of the unknown sniper who also tried to kill her after shooting her from a building from across the artist’s street. 

115 cade and jane

In order to get to Oscar, Jane called to Joey’s Pizza, a fake umber Oscar gave her to stay in touch with him safely. Oscar arrived to their meeting place and was surprised by Jane who received him at gun point to get information about the man who almost killed her twice that day. Oscar confessed that the man’s name was Cade and that he was a former member of their organization until he went rogue and tried to kill Jane at her safe house. Convinced by Oscar that Cade had to be stopped, Jane took a stolen car from Oscar and drove to the address given by other member to a ship where she found the team. Cade, who was waiting for her, attacked Jane but before he could hurt her, Oscar shot him and threw themselves to the sea to take cover from the FBI. Oscar then confessed that Cade held him responsible for his closest friend’s death and that was the reason of his vendetta against Jane. 

115 gps

Jane replacing the car's gps with the one Oscar gave her.

When Matthew Weitz arrived to the FBI to run an investigation on Bethany Mayfair, she was found guilty of killing Thomas Carter when all records of Alexandra couldn’t be found on the FBI servers –after they were erased when Jane followed Oscar orders and stuck the USB drive in a computer-; it was also stablished that the GPS tracker Jane installed in the team’s vehicle linked Mayfair to a location she, supposedly, visited twice the night Carter disappeared that led Weitz to find Carter’s body. Weitz also found an imperfection on a pen’s flow that matched Mayfair’s pen –the same one Jane swapped for the one Oscar gave her-.

Hurt, angry and betrayed, Jane met Oscar that same night to face him and accuse him of using her to frame Mayfair for murder. When she was about to turn against him, Sofia Varma explained to Jane that Carter, Mayfair and herself, were into Project Daylight and that the only way to get rid of it was leaving the country, to which Mayfair denied and so they, as organization, sought to take her out of her job as Assistant Director of the FBI in order to make her pay for her corrupt job.

FBI Director Pellington, in search of a replacement for Mayfair, ordered Weller to suspend the Jane Doe case and fired Jane from the FBI. Despite her disengagement from the FBI, Jane helped the team with their last tattoo-related case and that same night she went to meet Oscar to cease any involvement with him and his plan, however she was surprised by Mayfair who got there before him; realizing that Jane was the responsible for setting her up, Mayfair pointed her gun at her, but before she could fire, Oscar shot her on her lower back, causing her a deadly wound.  

122 mayfairs death

Jane at the time of Mayfair's death.

Trying to keep her alive, Jane pressed Mayfair’s wound with her hands to stop the bleeding, but she finally died due to blood loss, not before spitting to Jane that she wished she could be in the exact same moment Weller found out who she really was. 

After Mayfair’s final breath, Jane left the place to hunt Oscar down, she went to his apartment and took a cellphone and a gun from it; before she left she found a picture of her as Remi with Oscar and retrieved another memory of the two of them fighting over her decision on being the one to complete the mission. Jane then visited Ana Montes to get help on tracking a number from Oscar’s cell that led her to Hobbes from whom she overheard about the purchase of a massive amount of lye under the fake ID of Donato. When Hobbes realized Jane was eavesdropping, she lied to him using Cade as an excuse to get to Oscar; Hobbes finally gave her an address to get her secured and meet “Roman” in order to keep her safe from Cade. However, Jane went back to Ana’s apartment to track the order down that the address Ana gave her led her to a warehouse where Oscar was picking up the lye. Meanwhile, Jane got a call from Weller who mentioned his father’s passing and admitting to her that she, Taylor, was the first person he thought of when things happened in his life. 

ZIP 123

When Jane followed Oscar to a barn, she found, what appeared to be, Mayfair’s body but then she was attacked and tied to a chair only to discover that Oscar was ready to wipe her memory again with ZIP in order to save the mission. 

Using the Taylor Shaw argument and their old feelings for each other, Jane tried to stop Oscar from erasing her memory, however he confessed that Jane’s real identity was never Taylor Shaw, it was just part of Remi’s idea to make her and the FBI believe that the girl came back in order to gain Weller’s trust. 

He also admitted that he and Remi broke into the evidence locker in Clearfield a year before the plan started and placed Taylor’s samples with Remi’s. As part of the plan and as Jane’s handler, Oscar had to convince her of being Taylor to maintain her cover and to keep her safe inside of the FBI without dragging more attention to her in order to perform the tasks to take Mayfair out from the FBI and place Weller in her place. It was also mentioned that it was Marcos who gave Remi her first dose of ZIP and that she wasn’t supposed to have flashbacks into her past life. Jane then realized that it was Oscar who killed Marcos the night the man broke into her safe house, triggering Cade’s vendetta to avenge Marco’s death. When Jane asked about Shepherd’s identity, Oscar simply mentioned that he saved Remi’s life and that he was the main reason Oscar and Jane were there working on the plan. 
For marcos

Oscar then attempted to dose Jane but she broke free and declared her intent to bring him in. The two of them fought, accidentally setting fire to the barn, before Jane accidentally impaled Oscar on a scythe, killing him. Oscar's body was then burned as Jane escaped the fire to finally leave a graffiti “For Marcos” on the truck and run away from the place. 

When Jane arrived home, she noticed that Weller was waiting for her already inside. He showed her Taylor’s favorite doll and mentioned that his father killed Taylor Shaw twenty five years ago, making it impossible for Jane to be Taylor. Confused about the sudden revelation, Jane tried to explain what Oscar had told her moments before but Weller didn’t stop to hear her and took her under arrest.

Season 2

Work as double agent

Rope 201
It’s implied that moments after Jane was taken to the FBI, she was taken away by the CIA who sent her to a black site in Oregon where she was tortured every day for three months. Inside of her cell, she managed some rope and attached it to a drill from the floor and produced a maze that later used to break free from her captivity. Before she could attack the guards, she was tortured once again and retrieved another memory where she was being trained, by a bearded man, to endure different type of torture methods. 
201 lie detector

Two weeks later, she was found by the team, led by Nas Kamal, in a motel in Camden, New Jersey, where she was currently working to maintain a low profile and avoid detection from Law Enforcement. Weller went after her and Jane was re-captured after she was pinned down by the team and taken back to the FBI. In the facility Jane was submitted to an illegal MRI-based coronary lie detector where she admitted to Nas, and the team, being contacted by Oscar and performing his tasks under his threat of killing Weller. She also confessed that she realized about Oscar’s goal too late and couldn’t stop him from killing Mayfair.

In order to earn her freedom –to stay as away from the CIA as possible-, and as an immunity agreement with Nas, Jane accepted to be placed inside of Sandstorm –the terrorist organization she once was part of- to meet Shepherd and to give Nas intel about the organization’s endgame to prevent them from any other massive attack. 

Jane was assigned with a fake alibi where she supposedly escaped from Cade after he kept her captive for three months performing different types of torture on her. She was taken out of the city to make a call to Joey’s Pizza and get an address to meet a Sandstorm member that could take her to meet Shepherd. To protect her alibi, Jane asked Weller to shoot her but she was shot by Zapata instead, showing her bad blood towards Jane after holding her responsible for Mayfair’s death. 

201 hospital

Roman patching up Jane's wound.

When Jane got to the address given on the phone, she was met by Roman, the breaded man from her memories, who drove her to a medical center despite Jane’s protests. On their way, they were stopped on a DUI checkpoint and Roman killed six police officers when the one that stopped them asked Roman to get out of the car after realizing that Jane was bleeding. After the encounter, he managed to take Jane to the hospital to patch up her wound not before she passed out. She woke up moments later with Roman transfusing his own blood to her, reassuring her that they shared the same blood type. 

Real identity

201 meeting shepherd

Jane meeting Shepherd for the first time

When Jane was taken to Shepherd, the woman introduced herself as her mother, who used to be an American soldier stationed in South Africa. She freed the children from the Apartheid academy where Alice Kruger and her brother Ian, were kept and trained to be deadly soldiers after their parents were killed by the South African government for being part of an anti-Apartheid activist group. When the rest of the children were taken to foster care, Shepherd decided to adopt Alice and Ian and gave them new names: Remi and Roman.

When Jane came back to the FBI that same morning, she asked Weller the reasons of keeping the truth, about the isotopic test on her tooth that determined she was from Africa, from her, to which he simply said that he wanted Jane to be Taylor. 

Aware of Jane's actions and where she came from, the team kept their distance, often showing hostile rejection towards Jane who also demonstrated her discomfort about her deal with the NSA to Weller. In those moments of doubt, Jane wondered whether Sandstorm was where she truly belonged in. 

Leaving Shepherd


After agreeing to be a double agent working for the FBI inside of Sandstorm, Jane was sent to a series of missions with Roman in order to prove to Shepherd that she could be trusted and that she was still the old Remi; however, Jane failed some tests and a Sandstorm mole placed inside of the FBI sent Roman a note indicating that her loyalty was with the FBI.  

209 sandstorm

Jane watching as the building collapsed.

Shepherd, aware of her betrayal, made a plan to lure the team into Sandstorm’s headquarters and made Jane watch as the building collapsed, apparently, killing everyone. She then ordered Roman to kill Jane but, unable to do so, he fired toward Shepherd and attacked her alongside Jane. Roman was injured and Jane took him to their old medical facility where Roman confessed it was the place where they erased her memory and tattooed her body. While Jane was patching up his wound, she found a vial with ZIP and wiped his memory in order to give him a new chance to start again as a new person. 

Jane's Blindspot

Working alongside Roman for months, Jane got to know him again and developed strong feelings after retrieving old memories of their time in the academy. In those brief moments, Jane could see herself as Alice protecting her brother from other kids in the orphanage, however, she failed to stop one of the kids who cut Ian's face from brow to lip. 

210 jane and roman

Convinced that her old brother was still there, Jane felt the need to protect Roman from himself and Shepherd and tried to help him in all the ways she could; after his memory wipe, she took him to the FBI hoping they could welcome him the way the team did when they found her in Times Square. However, the team saw him as a terrorist instead and held him responsible of the death of twelve agents the night Shepherd blew Sandstorm’s compound. Despite the team’s rejection towards Roman, Jane kept trying to make him comfortable in his cell in Zero Division

After sometime, Jane convinced Weller to give Roman a chance to prove himself by sending him on the field where he managed to retrieve memories that helped the team solve a tattoo case; from that moment Weller proved to be willing to trust Roman. 

Breaking point

Trying to help Roman retrieve more memories and save him from the CIA, Nas and Jane took him to Shepherd's old properties with no results; by the time they came back to Jane's safe house, Roman had a memory triggered by some roses in which he was surveilling Weller across the street from a restaurant. Jane took him back to the same place, there Roman confessed he killed Emma Shaw as a direct order from Shepherd not long before Jane was left in Times Square. Roman attempted to tell Weller but Jane decided that she should be the one to give him the news.

As things got better on the team and with Roman, Jane and Weller became closer as friends and partners, developing strongest feelings toward each other again, however they never confessed their true feelings to one another. Roman was released from his cell and given home arrest at Jane's house as proof of Weller's trust in him.

220 the truth

Jane confessing the truth to Weller

A few weeks after Roman's confession, Jane, guilty for keeping the truth from Weller, told him the truth about Emma's death, this enraged Kurt who kept his distance from Jane, accusing her of compromising the case by protecting her brother.

Jane arrived home from work and found Roman attempting on making dinner which resulted on him cutting his finger, when Jane placed some gauze on the wound, he remembered being Zipped by Jane the night of Sandstorm's compound raid; he attacked her and taken back to his cell.

Shepherd managed to get into the FBI and attacked SIOC while the team was lured away as part of Sheperd's plan; during the attack the FBI suffered several casualties, one of them Director Sam Pellington.

221 jeller kiss

Jane and Weller kiss in Roman's cell.

Once the team stopped the attack, Weller suggested Jane to spend the night in Roman's cell because it was too dangerous for her to be alone in her safe house now that Roman and Shepherd were out there. In the cell, Jane felt responsible for what her family had done that day and what they were planning to do in a near future, Weller comforted her and they kissed but where interrupted by the Secret Service who took Weller.

Without Weller in the building, acting Director Hirst approached Jane and offered to relocate her anywhere she wanted as a way to free her from her deal between the FBI and the NSA; after their conversation, Jane considered the option of leaving but decided to stay after Weller confessed her he loved her.

After stopping Sandstorm and getting Shepherd under arrest, Jane arrived to Weller's party and confessed him she loved him as well and they kissed; when they went back to the apartment, Zapata, Reade and Patterson left the place to leave them alone. Jane and Weller slept together for the first time that night.

Two years later

222 (4)

Jane is seen climbing up a mountain; atop of it a Monk is waiting for her who suggests her to go back home instead of trying to forget something she still longed for.

222 (3)

Jane goes back to her tent and is surprised by Weller who had been looking for her for what appears a long period of time. They hug and Jane notices that Weller is still wearing his wedding ring, alluding to a marriage that took place some time between the two years gap. Weller produces a metal box - with Jane Doe FBI written on it - from his backpack and informs Jane that Patterson, Zapata and Reade had been kidnapped and that he needs her help to find them.

222 (2)

Once they both touch the box, it produces a metal plate with Jane's bird tattoo drawn on it which Weller approaches to Jane's neck, making a second layer of tattoos appear.

Season 3

Life in Nepal

« I'm actually vegan, now. All the Monks in Kathmandu were vegan and then, you know, I kinda really liked it. »
Jane to Weller
Jane's last hideout was in Kathmandu, Nepal, where she lived among monks. During her stay there, she spent most of her time climbing a mountain in order to leave behind her old life and drawing in her new journal. She also became a vegan after getting used to the Monks' way of life.


During their pursuit of Roman, Jane and Weller stopped at Saint Mark’s Square. As Jane searched the place while talking on the phone with her brother, she saw Roman in the crowd and began chasing him, losing Weller.

On the chase, Jane lost sight of Roman who stole a boat, driving it into open sea after Weller jumped in. At one point of the way, Jane also stole a boat and rescued her husband who had fallen off to the water, retrieving Roman’s phone.

Back at land, Jane and Weller argued about Roman’s command for Jane to inject herself with a drug. After Rich confirmed the effects of the drug, she injected herself, admitting being tired of running from her problems and ordered Weller to follow their plan. 

Jane was carried inside of a duffer bag into the church by Weller who posed as the assassin who wanted to collect the bounty. After Leslie Doorhaus couldn’t find any vital signs on Jane and lifted the bounty off her head, Weller injected the antidote, waking Jane from her coma; afterwards, both fought Leslie’s men and left Italy. 

At night, Jane and Weller received some help from Keaton on the phone as they traveled to Venezuela to rescue the team.

A painful truth

Getting ready to go to bed, Jane turns the lights off and realizes there's a manila envelope under the door, when she reads the papers in it, she realizes one of them is a pregnancy certificate and that the others correspond to adoption documents, revealing that she had a daughter eighteen years ago.

305 memory

Remi lulling her newborn to sleep.

On the phone, Roman explains to his sister that she bore a beautiful girl when she was only 16 years old; her father being Remi's old boyfriend. Roman also reveals that Shepherd took the child away from her mother after ordering Rossi to set up an adoption for the newborn against her mother's will.

After the child's adoption, Remi looked for her daughter but later joined the army in an attempt to cope with her loss and pain.


Jane’s memories are short but detailed flashbacks of her past life as Remi from when she was an active member of Sandstorm; however, some of them are insights of her childhood before and after she was taken to the African orphanage. They’re triggered by certain circumstances or people that seem familiar to her.

Her memories are always seen in black and white presumably because they got deeply buried in her mind after the memory wipe.


« They [CIA] were holding her at a black site in Oregon. »
Nas to the team
Right after she was captured by the CIA, Jane was taken to one of their black sites in Oregon where she was tortured every day while trying to procure information about her goals in the FBI and her connection to Kurt Weller.
« Do you have idea where I have been these past three months? What they did to me, day in and day out? »
Jane to Weller
Oregon cell

During the time of her torture, Jane was kept inside of a small filthy cell with no bed and windows and only a drain hole in the floor. Her only piece of clothing was some prison scrubs with a significant cut on the upper side of her back, making Kurt Weller’s name tattoo visible. 

Jane was submitted to different kinds of torture like electrocution and drowning; she was also constantly beaten by the guards using heavy chains or a tonfa stick.

Homemade mace
Somehow, Jane managed some rope she attached to the drain grate from the floor and made a mace with which she effectively attacked the guards and escaped from the place in a stolen truck. 
« He kept me in a small cell with no bed and no window. But, there was a drain in the floor. I fashioned some rope and used the grate to make a homemade mace. He came in to torture me, I made my move. »
The place chosen by the CIA for their black site was the basement from a car shop in Oregon owned and managed by Nick, who can be seen producing a shotgun from the counter as soon as Jane breaks free. 


« I believe people can change and that there's good in everyone. Even you. »
Jane to Rich Dotcom.
After waking up with no memories at all, Jane showed a rather shy personality, often observant and smart, surprising the team with her analytical thinking and eye for details.

Jane is caring and compassionate, and is often marked by a fierce determination to aid others. She stated herself that she would never betray her friends and team. Jane was even willing to help others who had hurt or betrayed her before such as Oscar when Cade attempted to kill them both and Jake Keaton when his daughter was held hostage by Dabbur Zann members. This strong desire often frustrated others, particularly Weller who labeled her actions as reckless.

On the other side, for all of her kindness and compassion, Jane can be fierce when provoked as seen when she confronted Zapata only a few days after she returned from Camden, knowing that the Agent held her responsible for Mayfair's death.

Despite being one of the more compassionate members of the team, Jane held a considerable grudge against those who had threatened her life and the team's such as Rich Dotcom and Jake Keaton.

However, Jane always sees the best in people and is willing to give them second chances.
« You always look for the best in people. I wouldn't want you to change that. It's one of my favorite things about you. »
Weller to Jane

Physical Appearance

« Zapata:Tomorrow we're gonna get you some new clothes.
Jane:What's wrong with my clothes? »
Persecute Envoys
S02 appearance

Jane's style.

Jane is a tall tomboy-looking woman with a slim figure and short wavy black hair. Her most visible features are the tattoos on her hands and a medium-sized black bird on the left side of her neck. She has green eyes, fair complexion and her body is completely covered in tattoos, including her face which was tattooed with invisible ink that can be only seen with some special UV light. She dresses in comfortable dark clothes that give her a casual tomboy look such as black jeans and combat boots, tank tops and a jacket. As the show progresses, so does her style and she’s often seen wearing tight sweaters under a black leather jacket.

After spending three months in a CIA’s black site (In Night So Ransomed Rogue), Jane’s hair grew into a messy wavy bob she later cut into her usual short hairstyle and changed the jeans for fit cargo pants.

222 (4)

Two years after the events from the second season finale, Jane’s hair is shoulder-length.



Jane's sketches (1)

Jane is a gifted artist, being able to make detailed sketches of her own tattoos by only using her apparent eidetic memory.


« I still say we call in local SWAT. It's one person, but that one person is Jane. »
Reade to the team
Despite her memory wipe, Jane’s muscle memory and instincts allowed her to develop considerable physical prowess lethal for her attackers.

Jane is a highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat. From a very young age, Jane was taught self-defense and attack techniques as port of a specialized training. Her expertise was proven the first time she was allowed on the field after an encounter where she easily disarmed her attackers. 

Jane is also quite fast and agile with sharp reflexes, able to dodge a much larger opponent’s assault, as well as being precise in her attacks. She has keen instincts under pressure, demonstrating capable tactical and escape skills such as making decisions in split seconds to ensure hers and other people’s safety. She’s quite resourceful, often using objects in her surroundings and the environment for her advantage.

Weapon proficiency

« Maybe your muscles might remember something your mind can't. That's an M-4. »
Weller to Jane at the shooting range
Due to her past in Sandstorm and as a trained Navy SEAL, Jane became proficient in a variety of weapons, the most noticeable being her preference towards the M4 automatic rifle, to which she showed having an advanced knowledge when she was capable of arming and firing it without guidance.


Other skills

Jane was able to figure out how to pilot a plane and a helicopter, as well as ride a bike and drive a car even though she wasn’t aware of her abilities to do so.

In her life as Remi, she was able to manipulate people through words to convince them to do what she needed, this is shown in Jane when she faces critical events with dangerous or emotionally unstable victims or suspects.

Significant Objects


« It belonged to your mom. She bought it when you were born... to match your eyes. After she passed away, some of her things were sold. I knew how much that necklace meant to her, so I bought it. »
Weller to Jane

Kurt Weller gave Jane a golden necklace for her (Taylor's) birthday. He bought it at an auction after Emma passed away, knowing that she got it after her daughter's birth because the green gem resembled her eyes. From the day she received the gift, Jane wore it every day as an amulet given to her by "someone special".

Sadly, after she was taken by the CIA, the necklace, among her clothes and personal effects, were lost.

Puzzle box

Puzzle box

As kids, Ian and Alice had a special coin that was the last reminder of their parents. Ian failed at keeping it hidden and lost the coin over a bully boy who attacked him and cut his face. Afer losing the object, Alice gave her brother a gum wrapper paper and they kept it over the years as they grew up. Before Remi wiped her memory and left Sandstorm to join the FBI as Jane, she gave Roman the puzzle box in hopes that he could open it someday.

Gum wrapper

On one of the nights Roman took Jane to Sandstorm's headquarters, he showed her the box but took it away from her when she couldn't open it. After the events of the same day, Roman gave Jane the box once again and she succeeded, revealing the gum wrapper she left there for her brother in her past life.

Box dream


« This is my sketchbook. I draw when I'm scared and when I'm happy, too. It helps me think. »
Jane to Maya Ahmadi
Jane's sketchbook (3)

Jane showing her sketchbook to Maya.

Jane has owned three different black notebooks she often uses as sketchbooks. They contain several black and white detailed sketches and phrases. In season 1 most of her drawings resembled her tattoos, being these the only familiar thing she could draw in detail by memory. Her sketchbook often helps her cope with different emotions and situations.

It's presumed that her first notebook was taken by the FBI after her arrest, as all of her other possessions, as evidence for containing highly classified information on her case. Some time after her escape from the CIA, she replaced it by a larger black spiral notebook.

Jane's rustic sketchbook

Two years after the events from the season 2 finale, Jane is seen drawing in a rustic leather journal. Her sketches seem to be as detailed as usual and still drawn in black and white ink.
