Personal History:

Born to poor parents in 1933, Jacob spent the early years of his life in Italy. His less then loving parents abandoned him on the streets at the age of 13. He got by begging for two years after that. It was at the age of sixteen that Jacob decided that he no longer wanted to be just another poor boy on the streets and he changed his tactics from begging to conning and thieving, he eventually became so good at smooth talking people that he managed to con persuade and lie his way off of the streets, this was at the age of nineteen and Jacob swore that day that we would never live that way again. From there on Jacob made a life in the underworld as a professional con artist, having to learn a few languages along the way for particular jobs. Although Jacob was very good with words, sometimes conflict was inevitable, many a gun and knife fight hardened Jacob into a good fighter, but his real weapon was always his tongue. It was on the 29th of november 1956 that Jacob took what seemed to be just another job, he was to work his way up to the Director position in a company in order to steal company secrets. After nearing his goal of 'director' position only a month later Jacob stumbled upon something he shouldn't have, whilst snooping around the house of the companies owner he discovered a stash of letters directed to the owner and in them the knowledge that this company was but a cover company for a group known as the SCP Foundation. A few days after sharing this information with his contractor Jacob completed his task and attempted to contact the man whom had hired him in order to turn in his mission and assign his pay, only to find out that his contractor, as well as many of the mans connections had been murdered. The next day he woke up in a blank cell and was informed of the foundation and of what they were, after which he was given a choice, join the foundation or be executed.

Miscellaneous:

Having been forced into joining the Foundation, Jacob has little to no passion for their goals and is more focused on what he can gain from the Foundation, he isn't down-right traitorous traitorous however, for he knows how the Foundation handles traitors.
