Eldest son of Greger Hjortkloe and heir of Hjortkloe Manufaktur and member of its Board of Directors. A commonly hated figure in Stråssa, renowned for his boundless arrogance and insufferable ways. A complete brat from Progresse, New Västervik. His conduct proved his own worst enemy; he himself being the greatest obstacle to attaining the success he sought.

Returning home from Stråssa in the year 2144, company heir Jonas Hjortkloe, gathered a band of faction members, loyalists, and specialists to begin an expedition back to the old Örebro County in order to increase his contribution to the company, and assert his power as heir over the board. This expedition in 2145, however, proved to be a failure despite robust funding, and the conduct of the Hjortkloe force (and of Jonas in particular) earned them infamy and the enmity of most people in Stråssa. Jonas' own decisions proved a decisive factor, for he rejected hiring the ever-victorious German mercenaries of Techno-Korps Lindemann because of their high price, and consequently lost out in the vicious struggle for supremacy. Jonas has since scorned Stråssa and directed his efforts elsewhere, although HKM has maintained an undercover presence in Stråssa thanks to its operative agent, and has likewise sported a media presence thanks to the efforts of Beatrice the blogger.

Rather Dead than Red

Nurturing a hatred of the Reds, in 2144 Jonas employed Info Direkt to spy on KÅP, the Chaosists and Red Peoples Front. Fortunately, the investigation showed that these ideologically related factions were not at all collaborating with each other. That same year, Jonas Hjortkloe was captured by the Red Peoples Front and suffered through the travails of vodka torture.

Strangely, however, in 2147 he seems to have participated in a party staged by Pang i Bygget in the camp of the Red Peoples Front.

Daddy's Pants

In 2144, stekerii Arvid and Ebhen of Svarta Svärden knifed down Jonas Hjortkloe, insufferable brat and heir to Hjortkloe Manufaktur, outside of the bar Shot in the Dark. The violent veterans grabbed one shoulder each from behind, and spun Jonas around for a split second of fear before the cold steel bit hime. The rough, tough and hard-drinking clones of Svarta Svärden have ever since referred to Jonas as Pappas Byxor (Daddy's Pants).

Rumour of the Mutant Brothel

In 2146, a nasty rumour started to circulate about Jonas Hjortkloe having visited a mutant brothel (and then slain the employees of said establishment) back in 2144, following his captivity at the hands of Krasny Narodny Front. Apparently a shady character handed over a copy of a spy document from Info Direkt's archive and bribed the barmaid in Sinterverket to talk loosely about this false matter. Fortunately, Security Guard Konduktör Én worked diligently in 2147 to fervently deny that any such mutant brothel visit had ever occured (thereby unwittingly spreading the rumour further), by gifting people on the street free apples from the greenhouses of Progresse, and by informing the public via Radio Active.

Hjortkloe Manufaktur strongly denies this rumour.
