Physical Description

  • Build/Skin color: Although Jacob is a fit individual, his general appearance is quite deceiving. When seen naked or without a shirt one can see a well maintained physique however, most clothes Jacob wears fall just right to hide his build. His olive skin tone teeters between not too light and not too dark.
  • Eyes/Facial features: Jacob's oval face is soft and barren of any true defining characteristics. He has brown eyes that easily convey emotions.
  • Hair color/style: Jacob keeps his head clean shaven. If it were to ever grow out, it is brown in color like his eyebrows.
  • Distinguishing features: Jacob lacks distinction in his overall appearance. He is completely average in looks and quite forgettable. His average features have been both his curse and blessing in his life.

Personality

Growing up in the background of life Jacob became very frustrated and bitter. Always chosen last, if at all, and never really connecting with others really impacted his confidence. As he became involved with acting and subsequently his current job as a master of disguise he has grown to see that life can be as he wants it. While Jacob is now a lot friendlier than he had been in his past he still gets angry quickly if he feels he is being ignored.

  • Likes: His reputation, money, attention
  • Dislikes: Being ignored, failing, other people making him look bad
  • Goals: Get rich and develop a “character” to retire as.

History

Born and raised in a suburb of Funky City, growing up for Jacob was a challenge. On one hand, his parents and sister were very caring and fond of him. He was able to feel cared for in his household. Outside the house however was mostly a curse on Jacob. His average countenance made it very easy for people to forget about him and go relatively unnoticed.

His average, ordinary appearance and demeanor really impacted his life. He grew to adulthood without any real connections to others. He never had any friends, never chosen for teams and never connected romantically with anyone. He battled depression and anger issues constantly. His family was the only reason he made it through.

As an adult, Jacob struggled in mediocrity at any jobs he was employed. Constantly passed over for pay raises and promotions. He continued to work hard however, always being sure to make his family proud of him. As a way to try and connect with others Jacob continually took free local courses in varying different subjects. One such class ended up changing his entire life.

Hesitantly signing up for a random basic acting class allowed Jacob to meet Denise Thibault who, in turn, saw the amazing potential in Jacob. Jacob had never had any true talents growing up besides being able to retain information and staying fit. Now though, he saw he was able to act very well. He learned how to portray characters not just in words but with emotion and body language. He became adept with make-up and stage prosthetics. He learned that clothes really do make the man, or even the woman.

As a quick study, Denise soon convinced Jacob to try harder and harder challenges. At first Jacob thought he was merely doing bit parts for the class but eventually Denise came clean. She explained that, with his skills, he could become a serious player in information gathering, impersonations and spying. He eagerly latched on to this concept because he finally was getting the attention he had so craved growing up. She went further in his training. Teaching him rudimentary self defense, how to pick locks, deal with elecrrical or mechanical obstacles and how to make full use of his natural blandness in regards to stealth.

He now is considered a Master of disguise and is available for higher for jobs. He will happily perform almost any job within his skill set.

While given rudimentary self defense skills and of course learning to shoot from a young age (thanks to being Nepleslian), Jacob is far from a fighting superstar.
