Jacob is leader. You know how they say there are the leaders and the followers, well there is no way in hell that Jake is a follower, so he is a leader. And it fits him just well. He knows how to stand up, and turn a situation good, how to make plans to make sure everything it done, and he just knows how to do these things. Most want to be his friend just for that, just because of the things he does, it makes them envy him. Not that Jake notices much. Jake is also well known for his skills in advice and listening to someone. Sure, he can talk up a storm and most would look away when he asked if they needed a shoulder to cry on. Most would wonder, what is up with him? But Jake likes giving out advice, he likes knowing he had actually helped someone who needed his help.
Jake loves to flirt, there is no doubt in it, he just does, He likes to see a girl smile because he is talking to her, he likes to see them blush because they are around him, and he just likes sweet talking them. He doesn't want to get a good snog like every other male in the school, he just likes to flirt.
Chatterbox, this would be the perfect thing to say of Jake, sure he can listen well as said up above, but when not listening he his talking away, talking of his family, his little half siblings, and even his step siblings. He loves them deep down but he hates them on the outside, always making rude remarks and such. But he never shuts up. Jake is one that would talk and talk. He is also very protective of his sister, Jelly and his brother, Tyler. He loves them to death, and if anything happened to them he would blame himself. He is always watching over them, and makes sure nothing happens to them, much like Jessika did for him.
Defense Against the Dark Arts is Jake's favorite class, unfortunately he sucks in it. He can't do anything right. He totally STINKS. But he loves it anyway. He loves the fact of learning things that he can use against someone in a battle, things that come in handy, things that he can actually use in life.Potions and stuff will get him no where in life. No where at all. But DADA will. he loves it.. to pieces. He is never late to the class, whereas any other class he is as late as anything. He has never missed the class either, another up side.
Hobbies, something Jake is sooo not with these days. But I'd have to say he loves riding his broom, but hates Quidditch, he doesn't see the point in quidditch and never goes to the games. He sits in his common room all alone doing absolutely nothing with his time. Most of the time thinking of some master plan to rule the world... actually no. But he does sit in the common room. Jacob can also be found doing.. actually nothing really. I'm serious the kid has like no life, besides being a huge flirt and a leader. Its actually quite sad. Oh, one more thing, Jake is scared of commitment, of getting too close to a girl and having her pull away, mostly why he's relationships don't last more then a week. He just can't stand the thought of breaking up when he actually got close, of having to put someone through what his parents put him through.

Personality: Jacob has always been way to friendly for his own good. Always. There isn't one time that Jake won't extend his hand to help others, or just to make friend, to put it more simply. He just likes having friend, and he likes to make people smile. Usually resolving into many jokes coming from Jake. Jake likes happy people, happy people make Jake happy. so, if he is cracking a joke around you, deal. He just wants to see a smile brighten upon your face so he has the satisfaction of you smiling. Its just one of his many little things.
Jake has many friends. Actually, quite a lot of friends. In the real world, he would be considered popular. Because everyone knows who he is. Once you say 'You know Jake, right?' the other person is already babbling on about how they know Jake, and how he so awesome, well besides those Slytherins he probably has a friend in every single house. Jake is just one to be known to have friends. But it does have its ups and downs.
Jake is probably one to get girl's easily. He likes it well enough, he likes to listen to their problems, he likes to hear them speak to him, and him alone. But he never lasts with a girl for more then a week. he is scared of commitment. Scared of getting hurt like his parents had hurt themselves. Scared to cry every night over someone like his mother had. He is scared for this, therefore he is never found with a girlfriend for more then a week. Most know why, others just think he is a player. He doesn't care what they think He is going to stay that way.
He is a softy. You come up crying to him, telling him a sob story and what not, and he is probably going to be in tears with you. He just can't help himself, it is a part of who he is. He gets it from his mother, she cries over little things, along with Jessika, his oldest sister. She cries over getting bad grades, Jake isn't that soft. But he is considered a bit of a softy. He is also hates Quidditch.
You heard me, he can't stand the sport, when his dad was trying to make up for not being there as a kid, he would take Jake to Quidditch Matches and he founds his hate for them there. He hated being squashed in a seat and trying to focus while some dude next to him screamed for his favorite time. He hated it. And after that he could never be found at a Match again. Most find him crazy for not liking Quidditch. But he doesn't care. He doesn't like it, and wont be found at any stinking game.
Another thing, in one of the worse situations, you better hope you are stuck with Jacob. He is the best leader, the one that can stick up and tell everyone what to do, if it gets to bad, he'll step down, but usually he wont. For school projects, he has everyone asking to be his partner. He is just a leader, something that was embedded inside him as a child. Something that will probably never go away.
1 Word to describe yourself: Leader
Jacob is fairly tall, towering over almost everybody. He stands already at six foot, and still as a bit more room to grow, or at least his mother says so. He works out, with his step father, and has muscles upon his arms, which only attracts the ladies more, as his youngest brother says. Jacob has brown hair that he likes to keep fairly short, but every once in a blue moon you can see him grow it out past his ears, but that is in a great moon. His eyes are a blue that stick out above all else. He has a fairly big nose, but he tries to ignore the thing, it sticks out some, but most know he doesn't like his nose and leave it at that. He has thin lips, thanks to his mother. When not wearing his school uniform he is in a nice pair of jeans and a shirt, anything comfortable.

Life before Hogwarts:
Jacob was the first boy and second child born to Molly and Matthew. Molly was intent on having a large family, one with many children, since she was an only child all she ever wanted was a sibling or two. She was set on having more then her daughter, Jessika, and Jacob. It was then that the fighting started. It was a little after Julia was born. Probably right around the time Tyler was in his first few months of being in his mother's tummy when things went down hill.
Jake was only four at the time, and got the stories from Jessika who was seven, and had a photographic memory and remembered everything. She told Jake that Mum and Dad would fight over them, the kids, and they would fight over who would take the trash out, well that was only at first, the small things. after Tyler was born, as Jess said, was when things got worse. Dad wouldn't' even come home some nights. Jess told Jake that the two of them would sit up all night just waiting for him to come home, and finally Jake would fall asleep, but Jess would wait till Dad was home, then drag her little brother to his bed.
It seemed Jake and Jessika formed a great bondage at a young age. The two became the closest any two siblings could. But as the divorce of their parents finally settled in and then Jessika was swept off to Hogwarts, it seemed Jake was the one to look after his siblings why his mother was gone, and thy were left in care of their Aunt who slept all the time, It was Jake who had to become what his Sister had been all along. He managed, but was glad to be gone from his home and off to Hogwarts. Where he found there was no place better.
After his first year at Hogwarts, he came back home to find his Mother engaged to some man he'd never met before, and two new siblings. Kaylee and Edmond. Kaylee was a year younger then him, and was always staring at him, while he walked around his own home. And soon, it hit, that the two new kids weren't leaving, and that they were staying along with this weird man. Jake seemed to take it pretty hard, and decided to visit his father. He couldn't take the new presence of people at the house, and stayed their till the school year began. Where his father dropped him off at the Platform.
Yet again, when he arrived home, another surprise awaited him. His mother was pregnant, and he was going to have-not one more sibling-but two, because his mother was with twins. He dealt with the family that time, and when it was time to leave once more, he was glad his little sister, Julia, or Jelly, was coming along with. Their was something about Jelly that made him jump with joy. But as the years drown on, and Theo and Dorry were born, Jake went along with things. Now, as if none of the past years have happened, he is in his last year at Hogwarts, and was scared of how it would end.
