The eponymous protagonist of the 2000 AD strip Jaegir is Kapiten-Inspector Atalia Jaegir, a veteran of the war between the Norts and the Southers on Nu Earth. Now an officer of the Nordland State Security Police, working for the Office of Public Truth, she is tasked with hunting down war criminals who have so far escaped justice. However, there are far more sinister threats lurking in Nordland than just the odd ageing enemy of the state, among them the results of ill-advised experiments on Nort soldiers, and a poison that turns men into beasts. Jaegir must face them all while trying to balance her duty with her conscience.
Appearances, Images, and QuotesEdit
Jaegir is a spin-off from the long-running Rogue Trooper series, and the Trooper himself appears occasionally in flashbacks to Atalia's time on Nu Earth. She remembers him as a "blue demon" mercilessly slaughtering her troops. The series is a refreshing departure from the original Rogue Trooper mythos, where the Norts were standard-issue baddies whose only rôle was to shout "Stak!" or "Nain! Nain!" while lining up to be killed.
