Because his family was wealthy and came from nobility, Jacob joined the Diplomatic Corp. After so many wars, he felt he would do everything he could to avert them and save lives. He managed to make a 20-year career out of serving as a Diplomat. He was good at his job, built a network of contacts and a few allies.

But he was honest and when approached by a cabal of nobles to overthrow a small local government, he refused and turned many of them in. He was unaware of how big the true conspiracy and made powerful enemies that day.

Realizing that his career momentum had ended, he retired and spent the next 8-years knocking about space. Picking up some contacts here and there, seeing another side of life, getting into and out of a few scrapes, and learning a few new handy skills.
