History: (Seeker 3000#1 (fb))- Jericho Shaw was one of the earliest clones ("vats") born on Seeker 3000. Born of DNA taken from the ship's captain, Jordan Shaw, he was raised side-by-side with Jordan's naturally-born son, Carter. Despite their different origins, the two considered each other brothers.

(Seeker 3000#1, 4 (fb))- On an away mission to Cyclades 778 with Martika and Jordan to see if the planet could be terraformed, Jericho saw his father stumbled into a fissure as a volcanic eruption occurred. Although he could have saved his father, Jericho allowed him to perish.

(Seeker 3000#1)- Returning to Seeker 3000, Jericho informed the crew that Jordan's death was unpreventable. The crew held an election for a new captain, and Jericho won, as the majority of the crew favoured him for being a clone of Jordan. Later, Jericho met Phaedra for the first time when she appeared to warn the crew of the presence of the Hkkkt, a vicious alien race.

(Seeker 3000#2)- With Carter's mule missing, Jericho was determined to depart the sector before the Hkkkt could arrive, but Valida Payton convinced him to allow her the time to organize a search for Carter. The delay wound up allowing the Hkkkt the time they needed to invade.

(Seeker 3000#3)- Jericho led the crew in combat aboard Seeker 3000 as the ship was boarded. He joined them in hiding from the Hkkkt in the Pathfinders' Dead Zones.

(Seeker 3000#4)- Reunited with Carter, Jericho was determined to the lead the crew through the ship's Green Galleries to save time. Carter disagreed, but had to follow his brother's lead. As they traveled through the Green Galleries, they wound up walking right into a Hkkkt ambush, and Carter struck Jericho down in anger. Although the Hkkkt were subsequently defeated, Jericho's actions with regards to his father's death came to light, and he was forced to step down, with Carter taking his place.
