"Why does living have to be so hard?"
— Jennifer, writing in her journal

Jennifer was a homeless Stranded in Ilima that kept a journal.


Living in IlimaEdit

Jennifer lived in the city of Ilima with her family. They moved from one house to another one after it collapsed and nearly killed one of her kids. She was either evacuated by the COG from Ilima, or killed by the Locust before or after the Sinking of Ilima. Her journal was found by Sgt. Marcus Fenix.[1]

Jennifer's JournalEdit

The tremors have been getting worse.

We're squatting in a new house, hopefully it's more stable than the last one, but it's icky down here... standing water, rats, and black mold everywhere. We knew staying in Ilima was going to be tough, but the tremors are making things worse.

The last place, the concrete just cracked, almost caved in on little Jay. This place is wood, maybe it'll hold up better, we'll see.

I pray each night that me and the kids will be safe.
