"You know, I could be kind of a mentor to you. If we worked closely together I could teach you all I know."
"But what could I possibly do to repay you?"
"I know! Perhaps someday I could introduce you to my cousin Michelle. She likes short men. Even as short as you."
"Ah. Beautiful and mean. I like you."
Marco and Jeanne[src]

Jeanne Gerard is a French Deuxième Bureau trainee and a student in Jake's morphing classes.


"I'd put it to the class that I needed volunteers for a mission that would very likely prove suicidal, that was illegal, that would involve their disappearing without a trace, without the approval of their governments, without notice to their families. They wouldn't be paid, promoted, or well-treated. I would be in charge and they would be low men or women on the totem pole. All but three volunteered. It was a measure of my fame, I guess. It made me feel a little bad, like I was taking advantage of them. I decided to take two of them, Sergeant Santorelli, a U.S. Army Ranger who was five years older than me, and a French Deuxieme Bureau trainee named Jeanne Gerard. I chose them both on the strength of their lack of any close family. I could have had more, but I felt six people was the right number. It had worked before. Unfortunately, Jeanne was beautiful. A problem I should have foreseen."

Jeanne and Santorelli were both recruited and tasked with the mission to save Ax somewhere in Kelbrid space. Both were chosen by Jake for their strength and lack of any close family.

Along with Jake, Marco, Tobias, Menderash and Santorelli, she helped steal the Yeerk prototype ship, christened The Rachel, and sent off for Kelbrid space.


  • Jeanne is said to be a member of the French Deuxième Bureau, a French intelligence agency. However, the Deuxième Bureau became defunct in 1940.
