Vontae Jones is a character on The Blacklist.
Not much is known of Vontae's life, only that he committed a crime serious enough to earn him time in a federal prison. There he met Raymond Reddington, who quickly grew close to him and took young Vontae under his wing. Vontae told Red that nobody, not even his family, had shown any concern for his life.
After Reddington left prison, he took Vontae with him, making sure he got an early parole as part of Red's new immunity agreement, and recruited Vontae to his syndicate.
