In-depth character backgroundEdit

Jonathan "Jonny" Quest is the son of Dr. Benton Quest, and a good friend of Race Bannon, Hadji Singh, and Jessie Bannon. An adventurous, impulsive youth, he accompanies his father's phenomenology experiments with relentless curiosity and positivity. He keeps a pet bulldog named Bandit and plays drums (as shown in Quest Compound backgrounds in the Cover-Up at Roswell game). He often tackles tough situations with straight-on action, contrasted to Jessie's careful intelligence and Hadji's fatalistic approach. Rarely if ever obeying his father's wishes to stay put, he explores with charming alacrity, and identifies with Race Bannon's man-of-action lifestyle.

It's suggested by fans that he is secretly in love with Jessie Bannon. This can be further supported by the episode "Ghost Quest" as they were being possessed by Jean Leger and Lady Caroline and kissed. This further supports the possibility as both ghosts resemble the older selves of Jonny and Jessie.
