Debut Primal

"This should be cool."

Jennifer Tate, more commonly called Jen, is the main protagonist of the video game Primal and she is also a playable character in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.



Wheh Jen and her boyfriend were attacked in an alley and left for dead, her spirit was pulled from her body to the plain of Oblivion. With the help of Scree, a gargoyle who acts as Jen's guide and companion, she travels to different demon-occupied realms to restore the balance between order and chaos and find her boyfriend. Armed with the Vambrace, which allow her to take on different demon forms, Jen has all the right tools for any fight.


  • Primal



The story begins with Jen and Scree walking through a rift gate, having set balance to one of the realms of Oblivion. As Scree praises Jen's resourcefulness, Arella appears before them, stating that some force is bringing multiple realms together. Scree asks if it's the work of Abaddon, but Arella cannot say. Arella warns that these realms cannot gather at once, as it would threaten the universe to collapse. Jen thinks she understands (comparing it to putting too much weight on a wet paper towel), but says that she thought there were only five realms, including her own. Scree brings up that with the other four they already know, she should at least be able to assume that more realms exist besides the ones in Oblivion. Jen admits that Scree has a point. Arella intervenes and tells the two that there is no time to waste, and the two set off on their newest journey.

Reason: N/A

Connection: N/A


Jen and Scree exit a rift gate, with Scree telling Jen how proud he is of her for preventing a universal collapse. Jen says it was nothing and that she could've done the whole thing without the Vambrace or demon aspects. The causes Scree to say, "Oh, really?" Jen responds, "Well... okay, maybe not," and says she thought it would make her sound tougher. She continues by saying she couldn't have finished the gauntlet without Scree. As Scree accepts Jen's complement, Abaddon appears before Jen, with Belahzur in tow. Abaddon taunts Jen, calling her "daughter" and saying there is nothing she and Scree can do to stop his plan to reign chaos across Oblivion. Jen steps towards Abaddon and Belahzur. Scree tries to stop her, but she insists, telling him, "I got this." Belahzur roars as Abaddon asks if she honestly think she's ready to battle his champion. Jen glows with Polygon Man's energy and answers, "With this new aspect, I think I'm more than ready."


Jen can be considered a mixed bag, though she's primarily a melee fighter. A unique feature for Jen is that each button is dedicated to a specific demon form that give her special properties as well as a different level 2 super. Her Ferai form (whose moves are allocated to Btn square) can be considered her "go-to" form, as she starts every match and will always respawn in this form. Armed with energy claws and blessed with Ferai agility, this form gives Jen a higher jump and grants her greater foot speed than her other two forms. Her Djinn form (whose moves are allocated to Btn triangle) arms her with two energy swords and hard hitting attacks. While her moves are generally slower, the Djinn's metal skin armors her during each of her attacks. Her Wraith form (whose moves are allocated to Btn circle) arms Jen with and energy whip and dagger, which allow her to attack from a distance. Using the Wraith's time shift ability, Jen's dodge roll can gain more distance, making for an excellent escape tool and distance closer. Comboing into Jen's different forms can be a bit tricky, as attacking from one demon form to another gives her moves a little more start-up time (i.e. a Ferai attack (Btn square) has more start-up time if she used it in the Djinn form (with her last attack having used Btn triangle) than if she started using it already in Ferai form). However, in the right hands, Jen can prove to be a real monster.
