|REPORTS – Jake’s Logs|
Born: Tokyo, Japan (Father stationed there and met mother there). He carries a dual-citizenship, Japanese and U.S. Citizen.
Jake spent the first 6 years of his life in Japan. A military brat raised by a tough father, doting mother and strange uncles with lots of tattoos. During his childhood in Japan he was taught Kendo. Do to his father’s military career; Jake traveled the world with his parents: Greece, Germany, Spain, England, Alaska, Virginia, Colorado, and Texas. All of this was before he turned 18. He took up boxing because he was a short, scrawny kid. The growth spurt came late in life.
He went to college at Purdue, receiving a Bachelor’s of Science: International Studies. It was at college he met Jennifer Kane, a fellow student from England. They fell in love. After college, Jake joined the Army (following an old family tradition) as Military Intelligence. Just before his first tour, he married Jennifer in a small ceremony with just family and a few friends. He served 8-years with two tours of that in Iraq.
He was recruited by the Department of Homeland Security right after leaving the service. He was stationed in Washington D.C. It was here his daughter Bailey was born. She was the apple of his eye. Everything he ever wanted had come true.
After one late night, he was called to his home by police. His wife and daughter had been brutally killed by apparent cultists. The killers have never been caught. Jake became a broken man. He took up smoking (a vice of his wife’s) using her monogrammed zippo lighter. He was no longer the care free funny guy who always smiled and had a kind word for even a stranger. He focused only on his work, cutting off even relations with his parents. He is relentless in his pursuit of his family’s killers, delving into the study of the occult, looking for answers.
