Jake Collins is the newest member of the Troop, a group of teenagers who defend the world from monsters and creatures, and is amazed to find out that instead of drawing superheroes he can be on. Jake is a little impulsive, egotistic and careless when it comes to a lot of things. Often thinking that everything will work out, no matter the circumstances. Luckily, he has fellow Troop members Hayley and Felix to watch his back.
Jake and Mr. Stockley seem to have a good teacher-student relationship. Mr. Stockley shows interest in Jake's natural monster hunting ability and see's Jake's potential.
Felix and Jake are good friends. Both aren't exactly the most popular guys in school and seem to both enjoy being apart of The Troop. Felix was probably the first to trust Jake's instincts, as seen during No More Mister Nice Guy when Felix lets Jake lead the mission against the Doulos, a very dangerous monster.
Stephen and Hayley originally had a love relationship, Hayley like the fact that Stephen love her. Stephen love Hayley because of her everything-has-to-be-perfect attitude. However both seemed to have developed a good cheminstry throughout the season. They are often seen talking together at date or in Margaret E. Moul Home. Although they still tend argue on a regular basis. They have also show some sort of attraction to each other. One instance, in Welcome to the Jungle, when he goes to his "new" locker, when he sees Hayley, he whispers "Thank you", and remembers going to his room with her since second grade when she doesn't and after they defeat Ana Rosi, Stephen kiss Hayley and says "You're my babe!". Also in the episode The Good, the Bad, and the Kiesha, after being attacked by Kiesha (his gift to his sister in exchange for a game station) his sister, Margaret, comes in and sees the bite mark on Stephen's neck and accuses Hayley of biting her brother to steal Kiesha. To which Hayley lies "We were making out", which makes Stephen smile. In Lost in Translation Stephen seemed to be slightly jealous that Hayley kept hanging out with Liz, a member of the Japenese Troop. In the episode Speed, they must pose as boyfriend and girlfriend in order to capture Monica. They kiss in the season 2 episode Road Trip, and may start dating. (See: Steley)
Cadence is a bad girl. In the Season 2 premeire, she tricks Jake into going on a date with her. They dated for a while, but they broke up and are now just friends with benefits.
In It's All in the Game, they both run off together when Hayley goes to the vegan show. They are friends and Jake shows no hard feelings about Kirby replacing Felix. They work well together. (See: Jirby)
