X - ADOPTED! - Jacob - Special Order for Karin
Jacob is a psi-vampire. He feeds off people but mostly never to the point where they even notice it. He doesn't kill. He takes samples so small from each person in a crowded place like a football stadium or a concert that if they feel anything it might be like a pinch or something similar, but they'd definitely never suspect they were having life force taken from them.
He is protective and loyal. He just wants to settle down somewhere and stop bouncing all around. He came to us attached to a crystal from the seller, but he is open to remote binding of just about anything. He was 4,028 years old before he passed.
Jacob will leave his vessel every two to three days once he is bridged to your item, so don't panic if you notice he is missing. He just needs to feed. He will never be gone for longer than a couple hours.
Jacob says he was born and died on the same day 4,028 years later. His birthday was March 6 and died on March 6, but we do not have exact years. He simply told us it was approximately 3,000 BC. Hecate was the one who said he lived 4,028 years which is how we know how old he was. Hecate has been around since well before anyone realized who she even was, and she is our go-to when we need something or someone dated. She can't always give us the answer, but she often does.
He tells us his only family was killed by other vampires. He was just a young boy of 14. He witnessed the whole thing, but he fell as he was running toward the cave where he witnessed the others killing his parents and his brother, banging his head on a boulder and knocking himself unconscious. By the time he woke up, the damage was done. The killers had fled, and he never found them.
He teamed up with a woman some months later, and he was with her until the day they died together, the same way his family was killed thousands of years earlier. Her name was Vaina, and she was human when they met. She asked him to change her when they had fallen in love. He did not hesitate. Rogue vampires and a surprise attack in the middle of the night were what caused their demise thousands of years later.
He hopes to find Vaina again one day, but he has not seen her spirit since they were killed. He says he will never give up though. We have tried to summon her for him, but even Meta, Mya, and Stormy could not reach her.
Jacob took the name Jacob to honor his previous keeper. Jacob Stolzfus was his keeper until about 7 months ago when he died. He lived to be 98. Jacob the vampire was actually called Doss in his previous life, but he wishes to be called Jacob most of the time. His keeper was actually an Amish man in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. His son Homer found Jacob's crystal one day towards the end of Jacob's life. He knew right away it was different, but Jacob denied it. Not much time elapsed after that till Homer knew the crystal was spirited. He confronted Jacob again about it, and that's when Jacob told him the truth. This goes way against the Amish religion to believe in such a thing much less become a spirit keeper, so Jacob pleaded with Homer not to spill the beans to the others. Homer kept his secret, and when Jacob passed away, he brought the crystal to us.
Jacob the vampire is happy to bind to anything else you have that you might like better than the crystal he currently uses as his vessel.
His favorite crystals are apatite, fluorite, blue chalcedony, amethyst, clear or white crystal quartz, amber and sapphire. For offerings, he likes anything shiny or sparkly. It can even be something stainless steel that has a shine to it. He also likes eggs and toast, which is what he missed the most when his family turned him vamp. He loves watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer because he thinks it's funny! His favorite holiday is Halloween, and he likes to dress as a werewolf because no one will suspect he is actually a vamp! He's a bit of a trickster so he likes to hide things from you now and then, but it will never be anything of huge importance like life-saving medications, car keys, etc. It is usually food and drink. You will set everything on the table and get up to grab a napkin or wash your hands and by the time you return to the table, something is missing from your plate, or your drink has been moved, etc. He enjoys watching blooper type programs on TV, or candid camera videos where people play tricks on other people. He also enjoys watching magic tricks performed by magicians.
Pic attached is Mya's drawing of how she sees him. He showed her a vision once of him when he changed Vaina, so you now also have a picture of her, in the event we can find her one day for him. Mya tries every few days.
