Fan Based Character
The character of JP Harvey is named for the devoted junkie by the same name whose avatar is pictured at the left. This dedicated junkie can be found as an active member on the official Scott Sigler website forums under the user name of JP.
In the real world, JP is not a police officer. Rumors abound about his actual employment, including English professor, entomologist, firefighter, "International Man of Mystery" (fueled by the fact he's visited every continent on the globe except for Antarctica), and part-time pastry chef, however confirmation remains elusive.
