“I got to know a woman who would bet on the best in us, who bet on people, no matter what the world said about who they were, who they should be. That woman would do anything to save a sick boy—a Nazi boy, even—because she would believe he deserved the chance, as slim as it might be, to live a valuable life...Millions of people will live because of the choice you made. The goodness in you, Juliana.
~ Hawthorne Abendsen

Juliana Crain is the daughter of Anne Walker and her late first husband John Crain, the older maternal half-sister of Trudy Walker, and the stepdaughter of Arnold Walker. She is an American who has lived most of her life in the Japanese Pacific States, recently defecting to the Greater Nazi Reich in order to find George Dixon. She is also one of the main characters of the novel and series.

Biography

Early Life

Juliana was born to John Crain, an American soldier who died during the war, and his then-wife Anne Crain, who would later remarry his friend and Army buddy Arnold Walker. Juliana was alive when the Japanese invaded, and since her mother often wasn't around, she would look after her younger sister, Trudy. She grew up in the Japanese Pacific States, and did not have the same hatred of them her mother did.

However, at some point, she felt alone, depressed, and without hope and stepped in front of a bus in a suicide attempt. Frank met her in the hospital while volunteering or visiting his friend Ed who had a lung condition. Frank helped her recover, and it's hinted in season 2 that she may be infertile because of the 'accident'. Afterwards, she frequented an Aikido Dojo and became exceptionally skilled at it, able to take down a man twice her size.

Season One

In San Francisco, she witnesses the death of her sister Trudy by the hands of the Kempeitai. Before dying, Trudy hands her a film. She reaches Canon City, where she meets Joe Blake. Juliana goes in place of her sister Trudy and attempts to find her contact, which ultimately fails when The Marshall nearly kills her and Joe Blake. She returns to San Francisco to find her boyfriend Frank in trouble with the Kempeitai. They try to flee the Pacific States but fail twice as a result of interference with the Resistance. She betrays the Resistance and lets Joe Blake flee San Francisco, resulting in her getting locked up by the Resistance.

Work in Progress

Season Two

Captured by the Resistance, Juliana meets the 'Man in the High Castle' after being sedated. He shows her his collection of films from alternate realities and asks her to identify a man spotted in most of them. After telling him that the man looks familiar but she doesn't recognize him, Juliana is shot in the arm by Gary, a Resistance member and passes out. She wakes up in the trunk of a moving car, and overhears the conversation between Lem, Karen and Gary about straying from their route to kill her and get rid of her body. She breaks out of the trunk while the car is passing Japanese soldiers, and narrowly escapes while the Japs fire at Gary and vice versa. Juliana later defects to the Reich by going to the Nazi Embassy in San Francisco and asking for asylum. After going through a series of detailed physical exams, Erich Raeder asks her a series of questions about her relationship with Joe Blake and tells her to write down in detail what happened in the past two weeks, therefore implying that the events of season one took place in that timespan. Obergruppenfuhrer John Smith accepts her request of asylum and personally handles her case, making sure she has an appartment, clothes and anything else she might need. In exchange, he's hoping to find out more about Abensen, the 'Man in the High Castle', which Juliana wrote nothing about in her report, but whom Smith is sure she has met. He offers her a fake name - Julia Mills, and also a fake life story, so that she remains safe and hidden from the Resistance. When asked if it's possible to see Joe, he replies by saying that Joe is away at the moment, on a mission. Juliana instantly befriends Helen Smith and the wives of other important Nazis in New York, but, after meeting Dixon, she also begins working with the Resistance, acting as a spy for them. Meanwhile, Juliana goes to look for Joe Blake and visits an adress she has found. There, she meets Rita and is confused by her bitter words about Joe.  More to be added

Appearance & Personality
