History

Jacob's first memory involves waking up in the same bed he currently sleeps in. Nothing before that day is present in his mind. He has always looked the way he does now. Has always sounded the way he does now. Has always lived the way he does now, in a one-bedroom house with a blue cat named Ruffy, with occasional visits from his benevolent friend Chance.

What Jacob does not know is that for the last two years he has laid sleeping in a laboratory tucked away inside the Phoenix Industries building, his body and mind tended by J.C. LaChance. He does not know his mind and empathy are part of an experiment in the control of psionic abilities. He does not remember his wife finding out about his extramarital affairs, and turning her own devastating psionic abilities on him in revenge. He doesn't know about the annulment of their marriage, or the money she took, or her generous donation of his mind and body to LaChance's project.

All he knows is the reality LaChance built around him, and the vague flashes of memory that come to him in dreams.

Personality

At present, Jake is best described as gentle and compliant, but also easily worried and concerned by change. Certain negative aspects of his personality are currently repressed, but have the potential to re-emerge.

Powers

Jacob is an empath, with grants him the ability to sense and manipulate emotions. His Sigil is fairly powerful, giving his ability extra strength and range. He can effect the emotions of a person within approximately a 200 ft. radius. Physical contact increases effectiveness. Using his Sigil on multiple targets, at a longer range, or rapidly cycling through emotions is taxing and can result in unpleasant side-effects.
