Jacob makes his living by delivering telesma and magical items to various shops all over Seattle. Some of those items are indeed magical, others are just glitter. Whatever the customer asks. He’s also a scam artist, more for the fun of it than anything else.
He’s an ork of African-American, possibly just African descent and speaks with a distinct but hard to place accent that makes most people think of rastafari and voodoo. Not that Jacob wears dreadlocks, his head is shaven actually and when he doesn’t say anything, he looks more like someone on his way to a hunting trip with hiking boots and camouflaged outdoor clothing. He does not carry a weapon, at least not one you can see.
