Jabe's wounded arm was treated by Heather in the waiting room of the District Four clinic. During their brief exchange, Jabe explained that he injured his arm while working in one of Akolan's mines. Seeing Heather's shock when he told her that, despite his accident, he continues to work, Jabe informs her that he has been moved to the quarry. He and Heather's father, Whittle Longtreader, then explain to Heather that, if they don't work, they don't receive their rations and they starve.
Jabe is described as young, around Heather's age, as well as strong.
Personality and traits
