“Hawk and Awe!”
    —Jet-Vac's official catchphrase

Jet-Vac is a wingless Sky Baron who is one of the new Air Skylanders in Skylanders: Giants. His Series 2 name is Turbo Jet-Vac, and his Series 3 name is Full Blast Jet-Vac.

Background

Personality

Noble and courageous, Jet-Vac always think of others before himself. Now a Skylander, he soars where even eagles never dare.[2]

Biography

Jet-Vac was the greatest, most daring flying ace in all of Windham. He was given his magical wings when he was young, as was the tradition for all Sky Barons. But when his homeland was raided, he chose to sacrifice his wings to a young mother so she could fly her children to safety. This act of nobility caught the attention of Master Eon, who sought out the young Sky Baron and presented him with a gift - a powerful vacuum device that would allow him to soar through the skies once again. Jet-Vac accepted the gift with gratitude, and now daringly fights evil alongside the other Skylanders.

Story

History

It's traditional for Sky Barons to be given their magical wings when they are young, and when Jet-Vac got his, he quickly demonstrated some amazing aerial skills. As the years passed, Jet-Vac became known as the most daring flying ace in all of Skylands. He swooped. He soared. He sailed through the air, amazing the people of his home town, Windham, and protecting them whenever danger reared its ugly head.

Then one day, Windham was raided, Jet-Vac was horrified to see a young mother struggling to get her children away from danger. He was faced with a choice - either fly to safety himself, or give his wings to the mother so she and her children could make their escape. Of course, there was only one option the noble Jet-Vac was ever going to go with. He selflessly sacrificed his wings to save the others - and caught the attention of Master Eon in the process. While the feathered flight ace remains wingless to this day, Eon equipped him with a hearty vacuum-powered jet pack which more than makes up for it.[3]

Jet-Vac was the one who recruited a sphinx named Scratch into the Skylander ranks after hearing about her heroism at Cats Eye Mountain.

Skylanders: Spyro versus The Mega Monsters

Spyro and Jet-Vac

Jet-Vac in a training session with Spyro

Jet-Vac was in a training session with Spyro, Drill Sergeant, and Trigger Happy generated by Master Eon. After the session ended with Spyro accidentally unleashing a jet of flames at Trigger Happy and Drill Sergeant, the Sky Baron noticed that Spyro was feeling down about not being able to master his Daybringer Flame technique, and Jet-Vac reassured Spyro that the dragon couldn't be good at everything.

The Sky Baron later went with Spyro and Drill Sergeant to the Desert of Columns to save the Molekin, Diggs, from a strangely familiar giant troll. Kaos soon arrived, saving the day by 'vanquishing' the monster with a magic staff after claiming to have turned over a new leaf by defeating evil doers. 

When the Warrior Librarians of the Eternal Archives arrived at Eon's Citadel, Jet-Vac, along with Trigger Happy, jokingly complimented on Spyro's legendary status after the Lead Curator, Wiggleworth, recognized the young dragon and recalled reading Spyro's heroic exploits from the Scrolls of the Ancients. The Sky Baron stayed behind at the Citadel when the other present Skylanders went with the Librarians to protect the Eternal Archives, and he later helped his fellow Skylanders in repairing the Archive Walls after their battle with Kaos.

Gameplay

Jet-Vac attacks by shooting air blasts out of his vacuum device, and his secondary attack is that he can also use his vacuum device to suck up the treasures and enemies in the surroundings. He also can fly with his vacuum device.
