Jade Washington
Jade Washington normal.png
Lives in:
Planetary Pioneer Administrator
Anthony Washington (brother)
The mastermind behind the colonization of Viridis Primus, the colony’s administrator Jade Washington is a force to be reckoned with. Direct and driven, Jade enjoys the company of likeminded people. Laziness or ineptitude is sure to land you on her bad side. Her motives are a mystery, but it is obvious that she is determined to make this endeavor succeed no matter the cost.

Jade Washington is the Planetary Pioneer Administrator for Viridis Primus.

First contact

After meeting Rosie Martínez and completing the This Pun Is Scrap achievement, Rosie and the player will visit the Administration Building to meet Jade. When they walk in, the following conversation will be had:

  • Rosie: Welcome to the administration building. Up here is the storage room. I guess it will be doubling as your room until we can figure something else out. Hey! I found [Player Name]. They're okay!
  • Jade: Rosie, what have I told you about yelling?!
  • Rosie: I better go talk to her. Since you'll be sleeping here tonight, why don't you take a quick look around? Just follow this hall down to the office once you've checked out your room. Oh, but please don't touch anything.

At this point, Rosie walks into the Office of the Administration Building, where she can be seen standing across the desk from Jade. Talking to either of them continues the conversation:

  • Jade: Hello, [Player Name]. I am Administrator Washington. You may call me Jade. I am responsible for the day to day administration of this colony.

Jade's description will then display.

  • Jade: I am pleased you are uninjured. Rosie mentioned that you already recovered a piece of scrap from your ship. Please continue to collect any pieces you may find. Eventually you will need to reimburse the company for the damaged craft. — (++ friendship.)
    • Okay.
    • It wasn't my fault!
      • Rosie: ...
      • Jade: Whether it was a malfunction or user error, you signed the contract. It was your responsibility to read each line of the 200 page document to ensure you understood your obligations before signing. — (- friendship)
  • Rosie: Don't worry, [Player Name]. It can't be that expensive.
  • Jade: Oh, but it is that expensive. For now, here are some basic tools to get you started. I assume you will be able to ascertain their use.

The player will then be given their basic beginner tier tools: the Dull Axe, the Simple Hammer, the Basic Hoe, the Basic Pick, and the Fishing Spear. The player can click the Awesome! button to continue.

  • Jade: As for communication, you will receive messages via the envelope icon at the bottom of your screen. Get some rest, colonist. Tomorrow will be a busy day.

Small talk

Talking with characters outside of job duties can improve the player's relationship with them. Jade can say any of the following when engaging in small talk with her:

We will never get additional funding if we cannot find something to show for our efforts.

Must we seriously converse on a daily basis, colonist? Between you and Rosie it is a wonder I get any work done at all!”

Does everyone think they can spend the whole day loafing about? There is still much to be done. Please get back to work.”

Have you tended to your fields today?”

  • I wasn't going to today.
    • You really should reevaluate your priorities, colonist.(- - friendship.)
  • I haven't had the chance.
    • Then do not dally about chatting with me! Get back to work.(No effect on friendship.)
  • You bet!
    • That is wonderful, colonist! Keep up the good work.(++ friendship.)

If you are running low on credits, you need not wait for your crops to grow. You may ship stones and lumber as well.”

The birds around here seem to store native seeds in their nests. How fortunate for you! Work smarter, not harder, colonist.”

Our next shipment is due soon. I trust you are making progress?”

  • A little?
    • You must show more confidence in your abilities. Weakness is an invitation for trouble.(No effect on friendship.)
  • Of course!
    • Fantastic.(+ friendship.)

If you are lacking in tasks to perform, I have some suggestions.”

I finished my paperwork early today. Whatever shall I do with the free time?”

It is days like these that make me wonder if I have made poor career choices.”

May your day be a productive one!”

Thank you for your contributions to the success of the colony. There is still much to be done. Please maintain your production levels.”

Relationship progress events

When the player is advancing from one stage (heart) in a relationship to the next, it is done so through an event.

First green heart

The player can reach the first green heart by visiting the Administration Building when her relationship bar is full.

Welcome, [Player Name]. I appreciate all the hard work you have been doing since your arrival on Viridis Primus. I wanted to speak to you about the circumstances regarding your arrival.

  • I'll pay for the pod soon...
  • What circumstances?
    • The destruction of your storage pod, of course.

After some impassioned pleas from Rosie and some serious consideration, I have decided to waive your debt for the destroyed pod. I have spoken to our investors and they understand that accidents do happen and have agreed to absorb the expense.

  • Thank you!
    • I am glad that you understand it was no small feat securing forgiveness for the debt.
  • I'm off the hook!
    • Please do not take this generosity for granted! It was no small feat securing forgiveness for the debt. I still expect you to continue to work diligently.

Well, [Player Name], we both have much work to do. Please let me know if you need anything for your fields.

  • Will do!
    • Good day.
  • Since you mentioned it...
    • Really, player?! I just forgave a rather large debt and you immediately ask for something else? You could learn a thing or two about business negotiations. Good day. — (- - friendship.)

Second green heart

The player can reach the second green heart by visiting the Administration Building when her relationship bar is full and the first green heart has been reached.

Welcome, [Player Name].

  • That's a lovely vase.
    • Thank you, [Player Name]! I am glad someone else appreciates its value.
  • What's with the pot?
    • It is not a "pot". It is a very valuable vase.
      • Where did you get it?
        • It was a gift from my mother.
      • It doesn't look that valuable.
        • Not all value is monetary, [Player Name]. This item has sentimental value to me. It was a gift from my mother.
          • Are you close?
            • Our relationship is complicated. We... Ahem. I do not make a habit of discussing my personal affairs with my employees. Let us review your progress... [Player Name], I must say I am pleasantly surprised! In all honesty, I did not think your production levels would be nearly as high as they are.
              • What's that supposed to mean?
                • I mean no offense, [Player Name]. You have just exceeded my expectations. Thank you for dedication to the success of this colony. Good day.
              • Thank you!
                • I have nothing left to say aside from keep up the good work! Have a good day, [Player Name].

Third green heart

The player can reach the third green heart by visiting the Administration Building between 11 am and 2 pm, when her relationship bar is full and the second green heart has been reached.

Welcome, [Player Name]. Do you have time to join me for lunch?

  • Can't stay!
    • Do you really not have the time? Or is it perhaps that you find my company... less than appealing? You have time to stay. I shouldn't push you so hard to meet my deadlines.
  • Yes, thank you!
    • Splendid! I have been meaning to speak to you about something.

I want to apologize for dismissing your inquiry the other day. I like to keep my personal affairs private. That includes my relationship with my family. ... It is an especially senstive topic for me.

  • I'm still mad.
    • I am sorry you feel that way, [Player Name]. Please allow me to make it up to you.
  • I'm sorry...
    • Thank you, [Player Name]. There is no need to discuss it further. Please let us talk about something more pleasant.

Do you enjoy chocolate pudding as much as I do?

  • I don't like chocolate pudding.
    • That is rater unfortunate. I suppose I have something else you might enjoy.
  • Yes!
    • Wonderful!

Please dine with me.

The screen dims, and 2 hours passes.

I hope that you enjoyed the meal. Your company has certainly improved my mood today. Rosie mentioned she built you a music box. Please take this disc as a token of our friendship. I look forward to getting to know you better, [Player Name]. Take care. — (Unlocked Music disc for: Jade & With Friends Like These... achievement)

Random events

3D Printer

Main article: 3D Printer

Once the player has built their home and slept in it, they can walk into the Administration Building to experience an argument about whether Jade accidentally creating a 3D Printer was user error or a malfunction on the part of the Administration Building's 3D Printer between Jade and Rosie Martínez. At the end of this conversation, Jade gives the player the 3D Printer she accidentally created. This event does not happen on Day 3, even if the player has already built their home and slept in it. The conversation is as follows:

  • Rosie: Jade, I think you just pushed the wrong button.
  • Jade: Absolutely not!
  • Rosie: It's a machine. It can only make what you tell it to.
  • Jade: I think it is defective. We need another opinion. What do you think, colonist?
    • Uhh ... No comment.
      • Rosie: I guess it was unfair to ask Template:Player Name to take a side.
      • Jade: Apparently Template:Player Name knows how to play it safe.
    • User error!
      • Rosie: Ha! It's a case of user error! — (+ friendship.)
      • Jade: Colonist! You think I could make such a simple mistake? — (- friendship.)
    • Obviously a malfunction!
      • Jade: See, Rosie? Defective equipment. Please take a look at it. — (+ friendship.)
      • Rosie: ¡Dios mío! You’re blaming the machine ? Fine … I’ll check it out. — (- friendship.)
  • Jade: I have no use for another printer. Is it possible to convert it back into scrap?
  • Rosie: No. Once you've crafted something, it's permanent. You'll need to get new resources.
  • Jade: Now I will need to requisition more materials ... Looks like it is your lucky day, colonist. I am feeling generous. I will not even charge you for this.


Once the player has completed Miles Kelly's Survey the cave for gems and Come talk to me jobs, the player will eventually walk into the Administration Building to overhear a conversation that Jade is having, presumably with her brother Anthony.

  • I understand. Please know I do not make the offer out of pity. I do not wish to see you again. Forgive me, I must be going. I hope that you reconsider.
  • I swear, colonist! Must you always barge in unannounced? How long have you been eavesdropping?
    • I'm sorry. Are you okay?
      • I ... Will be fine. I was just attending to some personal business.
    • Why do you always yell at me?
      • I really do not have the patience for this discussion now, [Player Name]. I have much more to worry about than your feelings.
  • I believe we are at the point where we need to try recruiting paying colonists. In order to do that, we need some sort of security personnel to guarantee their safety. I thought it a mere formality until Miles told me about his encounter in the cave. Have you had any similar experiences?
    • Yes!
      • I thought Miles was overreacting to some harmless wildlife! I suppose we do need some security!
    • No.
      • I was hoping you could corroborate the threat. Regardless, we will need some security.
  • I have been negotiating with my brother in hopes that he might fill that role. He is ... Less than enthusiastic. I suppose he will just need some time to sort things out. Speaking of time, do you not have something you should be doing? Those fields will not work themselves!

The next time the player sleeps, they will wake up to a conversation between Jade and Anthony, and Jade will knock on their door to introduce them to him.
