  • Jacob/Otetiani ("He Who is Prepared") is a mixed race Onondaga Iroquois. Ie he has a range of ethniticies from his parents, but considers himself Iroquois (his mother is Iroquois and they trace their heritage matrilineal-y). Jacob is what he tells Europeans his name is, he doesn't share his "real" name (only Sophie knows it of the PCs).
  • Those parental ethnicities are Scots-Irish and Onondaga from his mother, and French and Caribbean/West African from his father.
  • His Scots-Irish grandfather is your stereotypical grizzled old pioneer, he might be still alive, he might not - up to you. He fought in the previous war. His native grandmother is still around.
  • His half-Iroquois mother is a clan mother, one of the electors in the tribe and a politically connected and powerful woman in her own right.
  • His mulatto French father is a mercenary, both charismatic and driven by his passions but also totally amoral, in other words a Magnificent Bastard (in the vein of Marshal Rangard and Richard Masson).
  • He has no siblings (his younger sister died in infancy), but has a host of cousins (those on his mother's side are called "brother" and "sister" in the native style).
  • His mystical nature first began to manifest when he was a boy, he would see things that weren't there (actually spirits in a state of Twilight).


  • When he was 14 he responded to the call amongst the Confederacy to aid the British in their struggle against the French (and the Iroquois traditional enemies).
  • Served as a scout and pathfinder for a ranger-designated provincial militia, David Robinson's Rangers.
  • Distantly related to Captain Robinson's family via his grandfather.
  • Took part in an ill-fated expedition to seize Fort Saint-Frédéric from the French.
  • His unit saved the survivors of Dowling's unit after they were betrayed by their own scouts. It was during this battle than Dowling Awakened.


  • He had a mentor, Sooleawa ("Silver" in her native Algonquian) a shaman whom he called "grandmother" (she was more accurately a great aunt) who was a Thrysus Arrow.
  • Some time shortly after her Awakening, he stumbled upon Sophie in the wilderness and rescued her from some Huron braves who were intending to take her captive. Sophie then spent a couple of months recuperating in his village and was adoped into the tribe and received some initial instruction from the shaman mentor.
  • Sooleawa was murdered by a spirit manipulated by a European mage.
  • He's on a vengeance trail to find the mage who killed his mentor.
