"My host's name was Jenny-Lynne Cadwalader. Everyone called her Jenny Lines. She was twenty-three years of age. [...] Jenny had no occupation, a concept that shocked my Yeerk sensibilities. She considered herself an actress – one of the humans who pretend to be people they are not in dishonest TV or movie representations. But though she called herself an actress, she had never acted. From early on in my possession of the host I became aware of the fact that there was really only one thing that interested her. She was very deeply interested in a particular mood-altering chemical."
Edriss 562[src]

Jenny-Lynne Cadwalader (nicknamed Jenny Lines due to her cocaine addiction) was the fifth human to ever be infested by a Yeerk, becoming Edriss 562's second human host and her first female one. She was killed when Edriss forced her to drown herself in a swimming pool.

Biography

Infested by Edriss 562

"I did a quick search of her memories and found little of interest there. Her reaction to the infestation was to whine and complain. She did not scream or rage. She did not threaten. She merely subsided into a corner and occasionally remarked that I was a "total jerk.""
Edriss 562[src]

After departing from the Middle East, Edriss 562 decided to make her way to the United States of America, electing to go to Hollywood. Shortly after landing, she and Essam 293, in their Hork-Bajir bodies, entered the backyard pool of television producer Lowenstein, where they encountered Jenny Lines. Jenny initially mistook them as actors dressed as aliens until Edriss and Essam decided to take the hosts for themselves, with Edriss infesting Jenny and Essam choosing Lowenstein. The pair then vaporized their two Hork-Bajir hosts with their Dracon beams. Edriss was surprised, upon infesting Jenny, to learn that she was a drug addict who did not mind being enslaved so long as she received drugs. Edriss's experience with Jenny was one of her inspirations to eventually create The Sharing, a group that would serve to recruit lost humans desperate for something greater, who would willingly sacrifice their free will.[1]

Death

"I held her head close and kicked my way down to the bottom of the pool. She struggled, but Jenny Lines was younger and stronger and an expert swimmer. I pressed our ears together and reached out to her. [...] Then, I began to disengage from Jenny Lines. I withdrew from that empty brain, keeping just one control contact till the very end. Stretched now between the two humans, half-touching Allison, half-touching Jenny, I gave a last instruction to Jenny Lines. I made Jenny breathe. Then I broke contact forever. Allison Kim, the new me, waited till it was too late, then made a show of hauling Jenny Lines to the surface. I performed the primitive human methodology for resuscitating a person who has attempted to breathe water. It failed as, of course, it must."
Edriss 562[src]

Essam 293 and Edriss 562 continued to stay together and live out their host's life. Essam, controlling Lowenstein, hosted a studio party at Lowenstein's house. During the party, Edriss met Allison Kim, a technical consultant, and desired to have Allison as her new host. As Jenny was younger and faster, Edriss grabbed Allison, who was in the pool, and dragged her under the water. Near the bottom of the pool, Edriss restrained Allison and transferred herself slowly, spreading herself thin. After making contact with Allison, she relinquished her control over Jenny, although not before forcing Jenny to breathe underwater. Edriss then completed her infestation with Allison and waited a few moments to ensure Jenny's death before dragging Jenny's body to the surface to stage a failed resuscitation.[1]
