PROFILE

Name: Jacob ('Jake') Featherston

Gender: Male

Age: 34 (as of 1957)

Place of Birth: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States

Date of Birth: March 10th, 1923

Description: Unshaven, usually unwashed appearance. Clothes usually consist of a tattered jacket, simple white shirt, trousers, and work boots and his favorite wool cap, usually with a cigarette dangling from his mouth. His build is thin to the point of bony, along with dirty blond hair and brown eyes. Due to an injury during WWII, he walks with a bit of a limp.

Occupation: None at the moment, currently unemployed (formerly a steelworker at Ryan Industries); wannabe 'Red' revolutionary, however

Alliance: Currently none at the moment, but there's always Atlas in the future...

History: Born on March 10th, 1923, he experienced the drastic rise and fall of the Roaring Twenties (born into its heyday), with all of its prosperity and joy, then quickly having his family succumb to the Great Depression. Of mostly German-Irish descent, and being born to a Jewish mother, he was often picked on by most of his peers in childhood for being sympathetic to the plight of ethnic minorities within the United States, viewing their own oppression similar to the mounting discrimination his mother had faced before her immigration to America. Being born into a family of a carpenter and a seamstress, his childhood was mostly filled with his parents busily scraping to pay the bills. His formal education was cut short at the age of 12 when he was forced to go into work at a textile factory to help his parents with money. When President Roosevelt passed child labor laws in 1938, he returned to his schooling until the age of 18. Unfortunately, in 1943, he was drafted into the United States Army to fight on its newly opened war front in northern Africa against the joint German-Italian occupation.

He managed to survive the entire war without a scratch, mostly, except for a stray German bullet that had managed to hit him at the Battle of the Bulge in 1944, leaving him with a permanent limp in his right foot. He managed to achieve the rank of sergeant during the closing days of WWII mostly for bravery shown during the joint Allied-Soviet invasion of Berlin until Germany's formal surrender on May 7th, 1945. With the European front of the war over, he had some vacation time to spend in the U.K., and his eventual residence there, he managed to meet his wife, Vidya Nehru, visiting the country from her home commonwealth of the-then British controlled India. The pair was a subject of much talk, considering his rather low standing and her being a prominent scientist for the British's newfound interest into genetics, though their wedding passed with little fanfare. For fear of possible rejection of his relationship with a non-Caucasian woman by returning to the states, he desperately looked for a place where it would be accepted (not wishing to remain in Britain his entire life, after all).

His answer would come in the form of an invitation to Vidya through a colleague of hers from Andrew Ryan, famed American inventor, philosopher, economist, and industrialist, who invited them, under secrecy to his newest business venture: Rapture. Though hesitant at first, he accompanied his beloved to the underwater city in 1951, where he would eventually manage to become employed by Ryan Industries as a worker in its various steel plants throughout the city. His wife took off work this year as she found herself pregnant with their only child, their little girl, Ananda, who unforutnately is mostly sickly. After taking off for a year, his wife managed to return to the workforce again in 1953, this time becoming an employee of the newly founded Fontaine Futuristics. Unfortunately, only sadness would be in store for the tiny family in their near future.

His first distrust of Ryan came in the middle months of 1955 when a flu outbreak ravaged the poorer sections of the town, the rent being able all he could afford with his meager job. The virus swept through the poor districts and managed to make them mostly 'clean' - Ryan, despite having access to the best medical technology in Rapture, didn't lift a finger to help them, even when it was within his power to administer vaccines. Never being a real supporter of Ryan's Objectivism to begin with, this began a steady 'dark' period that would lead him down the path to question its integrity and how it worked for the world.

Happiness wasn't to be his, as the early stages of ADAM and plasmid testing took Vidya away from him in the early months of 1957 after a freak accident with a Lot-032 ('Incinerate') patient managed to go out of hand, burning most of the staff within the vicinity, killing some and sending countless others to Rapture's hospitals. This begins his own life long hatred of Frank Fontaine, whom upon he swears revenge.

And yet, ironically, he finds himself in one of Fontaine's Home for the Poor, as he loses his job to another as Ryan's purges of his factories begin, searching out for Fontaine loyalists. With this in hand, he declares himself a neutral party from both, having claimed: "Fontaine or Ryan, Ryan or Fontaine, whoever wins, we lose right? What's the difference of making one king or the other?" With his last amount of money left, he purchased a copy of Karl Marx's "The Communist Manifesto" and quickly began to become the very thing that Ryan had tried to get away from: a Socialist. Despite his attempts at heartfelt persuasion, none of his fellow homeless seem too interested in his ideas, fearing Ryan's wrath and Fontaine's if he were to find out, though they don't turn him over to Sullivan's police forces.

He and Ananda, his child, are currently residents in one of the tinier poorhouses in Olympus Heights. He doesn't know how his future will turn out, but he hopes that he can just provide enough for them both with getting a job again...
