He knows how to manipulate his surroundings to produce the best outcome for a particular mission. It may seem like luck sometimes, but he has a great knowledge of geometry and chemistry. It can be associated with "street smarts" but anyone can see it's more than just that. Some examples include (but are not limited to): choosing specific objectives to complete first; understanding technology enough to choose the best weapon or tool for any given task; understanding people enough to determine what they want/like/behave to an innate level; and the ability to fix or restore or reset something without deep knowledge of the task/object/etc.

: Jerome derives from a prominent family within their clan. His birth was kept from their public for the few years he was tamable. He was soon seen running around their "estate" and this existence became valid as fast as rumors are spread. His exuberant and lively nature was received quickly, but his parents were viewed with caution and skepticism just as fast. With three older sisters, Jerome would be recruited into the Jackals since his father was a Sargent of the Alpha branch. His mother strongly disapproved of the Jackals, wishing their community would just stay content surviving underground, and influenced her daughters away from the cause.
Jerome was too much like his father to deny his place in the rebellion. His father trained him personally and strictly. Though his father would push him to the point of breaking, JKL
enjoyed every moment of it. His father was his idol. He fought to be just like him, but it was inevitable that he was to take a different path. Jerome was not skilled in firearms and military tactics. He was often on his own and and completed missions solo. This eventually lead to his completing solo missions, specifically, much fast than others twice as experienced. His brain, much like his body, moved quickly and he could determine the best directions to go and completing the objectives in the most efficient order when they were given all at once.
He's often seen free running, and usually for good reason. Since his mind races so quickly, it's quite usual for him forget meetings and briefings. Ironically, he's often seen smiling. However, this does not cross over into military missions and when things are about life and death, his mind will filter everything important in the clearest manner.
When he was fifteen, his father was required to conduct a mission on the surface. It's been five years and he's yet to return with his squadron. JKL
"knows" he's still up there and believes he'll be the one to rescue him. This was the year he was placed directly under a recruit in the Alpha squad. He spent the next three years training more rigorously than the recruits and developed a strong connection with many of the superiors. When he was offered a controversial role in the Alpha squad, he quickly declined and opted for the Beta Squad which suited him better for their Scout/Assassin and Demolition squads were better and he would be able to make better use of his skills in the Betas rather than the Alphas. This decision was also made due to the many who disapproved of the favor he was given. JKL
himself believed he should start off in a lower position and earn his way up.
The two years since this, he's been given several missions on the surface. He's failed each of them, for his personal objective has never been achieved: to find his father.
His older sisters side firmly with their mother and disapproves of the men in their family who associate with the Rebellion but accept it since they were born and married into it. They alienated their brother and father and would only tolerate their presence for profession or public situations.
