—Mrs. Jones

Tulip Jones, often referred to as just "Mrs. Jones," is the deputy head of MI6

Biography

Jones was at one time married and had two children, who were taken from her at a young age.

She was present at Albert Bridge, where SCORPIA agreed to trade James Adair for John Rider, and faked killing Rider to double-cross Scorpia.

Jones makes constant appearances in these books, often only appearing with Blunt. She seemed to have a soft spot for Alex Rider, unlike Alan Blunt, and was often reluctant to send him into danger, no matter how urgent the situation.

In Scorpia, Julia Rothman recruited Alex to SCORPIA and told him that Jones had killed his father, and sent him to kill her. Smithers created a glass shield in her apartment to protect her in case someone managed to enter her apartment. Alex shot the glass, which cracked but did not shatter, but on a trajectory over her head, though MI6 did not realize it until much later. After Alex stopped Scorpia's Invisible Sword operation, she told him that John Rider didn't die on Albert Bridge, revealing the entire truth about his parents' deaths.

In Ark Angel, Jones and Blunt visited a security conference, featuring Max Webber. Jones later visited Alex in the hospital after he was shot leaving the MI6 headquarters building, expressing concern for his well being and reassuring him that MI6 will not use him again, though the statement proves false in later novels. Alex had thought that, at her visit, she had also been 'at her most human'.

Along with Ben Daniels (aka Fox in Stormbreaker), Jones met with Alex Rider in Bangkok, Thailand, and then told Smithers to supply Alex with gadgets.

She also appeared in Crocodile Tears with Blunt when Alex turns to MI6 to help stop a reporter who threatened to reveal MI6's using him. In return for nullifying the threat, Blunt and Jones ask Alex to collect some information from a computer at Greenfields Bio Center.

Mrs. Jones is known to live alone in an apartment in Clerkenwell. She also has a cat named Q, presumably referring to the gadget expert from the James Bond series.

Mrs. Jones likes the movie (and novel) Stormbreaker, but she likes the movie more, much more because "it accurately portrays MI6 and the individuals who work there", as Mrs. Jones is said to have said in some unknwon point in her life.

Appearance and Personality

Mrs. Jones is often described as a dark, rather masculine woman and isn't very attractive, though she did not really try to be. She has short black hair, dark beadlike black eyes that are described as could have belonging to either a crow or eagle, and a pale, 'business-like' face. She is nearly always seen wearing a dark suit and, occasionally, a simple silver chain around her neck as the only jewelry on her person. At one time, Alex notes that her appearance suits her work as deputy head of MI6, Special Operations, because neither her career or appearance gave anything away.

Mrs Jones in the graphic novels

She is noted to nearly constantly eat peppermints, which Alex guesses to be because she might need to talk sweetly(literally)

As Alan Blunt's second in command, she is Alan Blunt's closest associate. Blunt insists their personal and professional lives remain separate; consequently, Mrs. Jones has never even been inside of his house, despite knowing him better than anyone else in Special Operations. She isn't as pitiless or cold as Alan Blunt and shows less of a callous personality.

Mrs. Jones is sympathetic to Alex Rider and offers reassurance when Alex is uneasy about what is required. Mrs. Jones shows great concern for Alex's situation - often protesting that he not be used again, but all the while admitting that he is useful to MI6. She admitted that she never wanted Alex to get started with the Stormbreaker business since she knew how much it would change him. She shows signs of great attachment to Alex, of an almost motherly kind. Mrs. Jones also has stated that she has had children and that they were taken from her, which could contribute to why she has so much sympathy for Alex. Alex also has said that she is extremely lonely.
