If Jaye Tyler is "average" anything, it's just "average" itself.
Degree in Philosophy, dead end job, her sad attempt to escape her family…average. She knows it, she strives for it. Underachieving is her life. She's very good at it; she does her best at it. We think she's about the only underachiever who consciously tries to be an underachiever. This leads to the question that has arisen since that first moment, when the Lion's words reached her ears. So many have asked, "Why her?"
She isn't, after all, your average 'baby saver.'
But, you see, it's so simple: She Listens.
