Jeffrey Blair (b. August 2053-2056) was born in East Sussex, United Kingdom. He came to Gateway in 2055. On his first trip he found a Heechee artifact orbiting Somerset III. He successfully docked and retrieved 12 metal objects later identified as tools.

He was awarded by the Gateway Corporation $1million. He stayed on Gateway for a year, rapidly depleting his award in reckless gambling binges. Having ran out of money he shipped out on a second mission but did not return
