Jack "Postie" Durham is a mercenary from A.I.M..

Appearances: Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games. Nonplayable and an alum in Jagged Alliance 2.


"A disgruntled civil servant, Jack Durham got out of the postal office just before he flipped out. With the help of his therapist and a strong union, "Postie" joined A.I.M., allowing him to vent his frustrations and earn some serious cash while doing so." - A.I.M. Dossier, Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games

"Postie has the distinction of being one of the few mercenaries A.I.M. regrets ever admitting into its membership. With that said, the union's grievance with the postal service finally made it to arbitration, and Postie has been returned to active duty with full back pay. He has been assigned to the customer service department, which has reported a dramatic drop in the number of complaints filed since he came on board." - Jagged Alliance 2 Alumni gallery

Additional information

  • Unhinged, unreliable, and difficult to keep on the team due to a need for killing.
  • A less-than-subtle reference to the 1993 post office shootings in Michigan and California, and to incidents of "going postal " in general.
  • If Postie and Bud are placed in the same team, Postie will kill Bud before their second mission start. He gives a warning to the player beforehand.
