Character History:

Born to one of the Pureblood families that migrated to America, Jake grew up steeped in American patriotism and with a bit of a silver spoon in his mouth. His parents were already filthy rich as a result of being among the first families to take advantage of the gold mines. And in time, migrated in to the financial sector. JP Morgan-Chase, anyone? He had the best of everything; education, food, clothing, trinkets, fast cars. And on top of all that? Magic. As a student in the Academy at Salem, Jake excelled Charms, and both Offensive and Defensive Magic, a combination that made him somewhat useful at detective work and security. But, he didn't do anything with it. Mostly because he didn't *have* to. And up until he turned 18, he took advantage of it all without a second thought. A classic american bad boy asshole with a shit ton of money who didn't care for anyone but himself.

And then, well… when his parents died in a car crash, leaving him and his 16 year old sister Selena alone, he had to step up. Instead of going the route of magic, he channeled his significant energies into learning some discipline through the military. The Navy, to be specific. And in time, he made it into the elite Navy SEAL units. He spent a good 5 years there, keeping in contact with his sister - who had by now gone the opposite route that Jake did. She got married and pregnant by the time she was 20.

Serving even 5 years doing the most dangerous missions the military has to offer can take a toll on a man. And when Jake decided it was time to retire from the unit, he was very much a changed man. The things he'd seen and done only served to make him determined to protect people in whatever capacity he could, with the resources at his disposal. Which is how Morgan Security was formed. His teams go to any length necessary to protect high profile figures, and make a point of offering their services for free to prominent and targeted human rights advocates. His company's services are greatly in demand with members of the U.N. and at higher levels of government. But for all of his expertise, he was taken by surprise when his brother in law murdered Selena; it /was/ a surprise to those close to him that he didn't take his revenge by replying in kind. Instead, he all but hand-delivered his brother-in-law to the authorities and made the man sign away his rights as a parent to Selena's son, Cole. In return, he took guardianship of the boy, who has 24/7 security now. Overkill, yes. But he takes no chances. Which is all why, when he found out recently that he has pancreatic cancer and only 2 years to live /with/ treatment… he remembered a phone call from Edana Noble, and decided to return it. And then mobilized his resources to look into their family, specifically Siobhan, and get all the information he could find.

And technically, he was successful! Technically. It took some persuading, and some very sizable upfront gestures of goodwill for Siobhan to see he was earnest. But, with the backing of his old trainer Jethro, and medical proof that he was in fact dying… she took him seriously. Upon his death, everything save for some properties and trust funds for lifelong friends was to be hers. She adopted Cole and he signed the papers to adopt Julian; both kids taken care of for life. Only, well. He didn't, uh, die.

No shit. After all that preparation, and the unusual relationship circumstances that swirled around Siobhan, Snape, Harvey, Jake… the investments, the moving, the citizenship wrangling, legalities… and his cancer went into remission. At least, that's the muggle medical explanation. The reality has far more to do with magic and his benefiting from what they were working on to save another member of the team. But, he's here. And they're married. And he's gotten himself too tied to the family and the school and the security company he runs to do anything less than make this work, dammit. It helps to have Harvey there, honestly. But good luck getting him to say that aloud to anyone.


So American stereotype that it hurts. Military to the core, and unflinchingly loyal to those who have earned it.



Siobhan His wife. Whatever may be between them privately, in public he plays his role of dutiful husband pretty well. For an American, anyway. She's involved in every aspect of his life and business, and they sure do look pretty together at charity events.

Harvey A surprise. A surprise that should never have been a surprise if he was paying attention. But hey, Charity Brennan was paying enough attention for everyone! Which leads to their current complicated and unmarried but very much involved sort of status that he just would never bother trying to explain because screw it, it's nobody's business.

Snape You'd think they wouldn't get along, considering his bond to Siobhan. But, there's actually a mutual respect between the two that'd be hard to fake. Snape's potions kept him going during the worst of his chemotherapy. And, they are both of the same mind in protecting Siobhan. So, hey. They work together.

Jethro His old military trainer. It's damn good to work with him again; they only have to say exactly what needs to be said. No more, no less.

Cole This kid means everything to Jake. His biological nephew, sure, but he's all that's left of the family on the other side of the pond. You want to see him angry? You mess with Cole. At which point you also make the whole Noble clan angry.

Jake to Jethro, discussing Jet's salary upon joining Morgan Security:

"Told you I pay better. Of course it's right." He smacks the back of the folder. "Now you're going to have to buy real cologne and not that cheap aqua velva crap."
