Dominique Jackson was a cadet in the same class as Amaya and Nikki, but at the time was assigned to the CH-47. An exceptionally gifted student, she rose to the top of the class and was a favorite among her professors, which naturally set her up as a rival to several other students, many of whom would go on to become her fellow smartship captains. This rivalry remains to this day, but Dominique considers herself somewhat above it. This aloof attitude only serves to fuel the jealousy however. Especially with Nikki Kitai of the the CH-7.
