|Voiced by||Vanessa Jones|
Zoe Castillo's martial arts instructor, who runs a gym on the upper floors of a building in Casablanca. Jama is a brusque, no-nonsense trainer who values commitment and punctuality, so she finds training with Zoe frustrating at times. She has been working with Zoe for six years (since she opened her dojo), and now trains almost forty students. Zoe can spar with Jama as a combat tutorial.
If Zoe asks Jama about her past, she explains that before the Collapse she used to work in corporate security for Dragon Motors in Shanghai. After the Collapse (2209) the Syndicate sought her out to become a field operative for the EYE. Although based in Kinshasa, they travelled all over the world. She quit after four years (2213), however, because the work became more than she could stomach. Jama confesses that she did things she wasn't proud of, but won't elaborate save to say that the corporate world has its own rules (all focused on the Yuan).
She established her gym in Casablanca the same year she quit, teaching self-defence. Zoe was one of her first students.
Jama values Zoe's talent as a martial artist, but says that without passion for her training, Zoe will not progress beyond her current level, and until she has it, Jama is wasting her time. When Zoe misses her lessons due to her search for Reza Temiz, Jama sends her a message saying that there's no point keeping Zoe on her schedule until they can work out a consistent training programme.
When not sparring with Zoe, Jama runs through the short-yang t'ai chi form in her gym.
