Jana is the Illusive Man's assistant in 2186. Her duties include assigning Cerberus operatives to tasks that are beneath the Illusive Man's attention, filtering calls and messages, and acting as a guide on the rare occasion people are allowed to meet the Illusive Man. She is described as having black hair, large brown eyes, and a full figure. Before joining Cerberus, Jana was a military officer of unspecified affiliation.
Kai Leng wondered how human Jana really was, and believed the Illusive Man was trying to groom her for a greater role.
