With Lieutenant Sonya Blade, he has seized many of their weapons caches. But when a trusted informant, Kano, was revealed to be a high-ranking member of the Black Dragon, Jax made Kano's capture his priority. Kano has gotten the better of Jax thus far, leading the Special Forces into numerous deadly ambushes. Jax and Sonya finally cornered Kano on an uncharted island but were overpowered by the island's inhabitants. They have now been forced into a sadistic ritual of bloody kombat.

Fun Facts
Don't Call Me Kurtis
As legend has it, the first Mortal Kombat character had a military-type character named Kurtis Stryker planned for it. Tests showed that players would have liked a female character, so this character was replaced by Sonya Blade. Come MKII, they decided to actually implement this Stryker character... but near the end of development on the first release, changed his name to Major Jackson "Jax" Briggs. Mortal Kombat 3 finally saw Kurtis Stryker in the roster... as a pudgy riot cop.
