distinguishing features: Burn mark down his back where he was hit by a starship cannon his shields couldn’t totally block.
sexual orientation: Straight
family: Paul Alexander - Father
relationship status: Single
powers: Unarmed, Jacob is a baseline human.
strengths: Indomitable will - Like all Green Lanterns, Jacob’s ring and skills are fueled by his willpower. He is taught to overcome his fears, to remain determined even in the face of impossible odds, and to put his life on the line for the good of the universe.

Daredevil - Even before becoming a Green Lantern, Jacob was an extreme sports junkie. He doesn’t just find the courage to do the life-threatening job and incredible feats, he LIVES for them. He THRIVES on them.
weaknesses: Hold My Beer, I Got This - Jacob is a man of action. If there is something that can be done, he tends to just DO it, rather than overthink (his words) any given situation. This has led to him pulling off a spectacular mission success sometimes, and other times… well, the word ‘disaster’ comes to mind.
equipment: Green Lantern Ring/Battery - Jacob has the ring of a Green Lantern, which affords him incredible powers, including:

  • Energy constructs - Jacob is able to use the ring’s energy to form objects of solid light, to be used as weapons or other tools. The creations are limited by his own imagination, and are as strong as his willpower.
  • Shields - Jacob is able to use the ring to create a personal forcefield that can provide him with physical protection, and is able to create larger shields to protect others.
  • Energy projection - When all else fails, Jacob can use the ring’s energy to make direct energy attacks.
  • Travel gateways - Jacob’s ring was originally intended for an alien hailing from an underground race, where flight would be useless on his native world. His ring was therefore equipped with the ability to open gateway portals for transportation instead of flight. He is still capable of flight when outside a planetary atmosphere.
  • Information - Jacob’s ring serves as a source of information, tapping into the central computers on Oa or making any calculations he needs itself.

Jacob Alexander was, above all else, an extreme sports enthusiast on Earth before his life was given its calling. He was an average student, a decent, but not exceptional worker, but when it came to skydiving, rock climbing, or anything that required courage, skill, and risk, he excelled. It was while he was spelunking that he came across an old cave-in, apparently untouched for years, but where he came across a strange green light. Curious as ever, he set about the laborious task of excavating a way to crawl through the rocks, and his life was never the same again.

On the other side of the cave-in, he found a strange, inhuman skeleton, and glowing ring which had not been able to escape the cave-in to search for its new bearer. Now freed, it immediately scanned the environment, and locked onto the closest fearless being it could detect. Just like that, Jacob had been inducted to the Green Lantern Corps.

The story unfolded as the ring teleported him into the outer atmosphere, and then sent him flying through space toward Oa. The ring was from Sector 221, and its candidate was being transported to Oa to be initiated when an astronavigation error (he learned later that the cadet lantern panicked due to the alien emptiness all around it, causing the flight to abort) caused a crash landing on Earth. The ring could detect that it had already been replaced in its sector, after a year of being out of circulation, but it was programmed to induct a Green Lantern, and it was going to perform its duty anyway. Jacob was, therefore, an extra Lantern assigned to sector 221.

His training did not go as it usually did for a Lantern. The corps accepted the unusual circumstances of his ring’s loss and return easily enough, Lanterns had been lost and returned before, and in any case, one more Lantern was definitely not a bad thing. However, his ill-suited predecessor had imprinted himself on the fresh ring when it found him, and it left the ring with eccentricities… namely, the inability to fly. This deficiency was initially a stain on his prospects as a lantern (unfairly, since it was the ring, not him), but gradually, he learned to overcome it, both with constructs and through the use of the portals that the ring could open, a variation on the space warps that the rings could do to transport Lanterns across the universe. Eventually, he broke through the stigma and learned to work with the other Lanterns of his class, each of them learning what little assistance he would need to get going along with them, and him learning what unique things he could do to help them with their missions.

His first return to Earth was stormy, just in time for the Sinestro Corps war, but he served with almost reckless distinction. After, he returned to space, quietly known as the human who’d abandoned Earth rather than clinging to it like the others, though not to his face. After all, he wasn’t abandoning his world in his mind, he was just doing his duty, and his duty was off-world.

A month ago, Jacob was notified that a rift in space had been detected on the far side of Oa. Due to the unique powers of his ring, he was decided to be the best candidate to explore it. He reported through the portal and found himself in the Hub, where since then he’s been patrolling, the first Lantern of this new, strange sort-of sector, making sure that nothing from another world was making its way through to his own universe.

Jacob is suitable for bigger plots, action oriented plots, high-powered plots. If you want him involved, he’s involved. He’s a soldier, not a general… so far, at least. If it involves aliens, though, he’s your man.
What can I say, Jacob’s spent years in space, meeting strange women, and learning just what kinds he likes. He loves the ladies and he’s always ready to love more of them.
