Jacob is a dedicated physician. Pragmatic, intelligent, and fastidiously moralistic, Jacob bears the Hippocratic Oath with even more dedication in undeath than he ever did in life. Born in Canada and raised in Boston, he had thought he had seen enough of the world to find his way through life until he was embraced in Colombia. Since that time, his education as a physician and his talents in chemistry have been rendered almost entirely useless by this alien world he has been thrust into. His sire, Gretchen, vanished shortly after his awakening as a vampire. For reasons unknown, she neglected to provide him with a foundation within vampire society as would normally be expected. As such, he is incredibly innocent about the world of vampires and werewolves. He has not met many more vampires than his sire, and is largely unaware of the politics and nuance of this new life.
Though sly and somewhat manipulative, Jacob is unusually humorous. It is as much an offensive weapon for him as it is a defensive one, and he tends to allay any stark situation with quick wit. For this reason, it is easy to feel camaraderie with Jacob, but difficult to get truly close to him. Besides his scientific talents, Jacob plays the violin. The intricate, powerful instrument is a fair symbol of his natural expressiveness and general personality. In life, Jacob was a talented cook, and so now he tries to hold onto that humanity by fulfilling his blood cravings through intravenous injections rather than directly drinking. To this day, he has never consumed blood directly from another human – and he has no intention of ever doing so.
